I think the software is well suited for targeted feedback for large organizations. I think product marketing teams could use the software as well. I think it competes directly and does a better job than
. The platform feels more mature. I think this would work very well for politicians to be able to use to invite constituents to provide feedback on local, state, and national govt.

If the company...
Wants to replace a painful status reporting process. Has stated company, department, and team SMART goals. Wants to connect daily work to long term individual/team/department/organization goals. Is concerned about company culture and employee satisfaction. Wants to facilitate better communication and alignment without adding more meetings. Believes in the OKR method for planning and prioritizing work items to be done. Is digital. Read full review Pros I really like the customizability of the platform. As a user it is easy to navigate and provides ample opportunity to write in reviews. The ability to save information on the platform is great. So users can stop and start a review at their leisure I really like the ability to email to remind users to finish a survey. This keeps users engaged and reminds them to finish. Read full review Creating plans, tracking progress, and logging potential problems on one page is very nice. The company dashboard allows colleagues to stay up to date on quarterly progress. Read full review Cons Offering suggestions on how best to provide feedback in comment boxes. Perhaps forcing the creators of the surveys to list examples to help reviewers I think having emojies would help as well instead of the standard language. Perhaps adding a mobile platform for customers to send out to their workforce Read full review User setup and management and team/department creation is not a trivial effort. Requires some deliberate planning. The deadlines for plans don't connect to the due dates for tasks in systems of record. That can get confusing when Asana says a task is due next week but Weekdone still has a due date of tomorrow. I'd love to see more contextual support for sections like employee feedback. Maybe a sentence or two suggesting feedback based on the report's weekly entry. If a person had three Problems and only one Progress, Weekdone could suggest some corrective action to make it easier for the management to mitigate problems before they get ugly.

We have a lunch and learn session with Weekdone next week so they can share their tips and tricks for making the most out of the platform. Since we have been using the platform for a while already, this will be helpful so we can ensure we are making the most of the tool.

I like Perceptyx because it feels like a more mature platform. This is what the executive team at my company has used to survey. The ability to integrate into email platforms to send out to the whole organization is valuable, and the ability to save answers gives employees time to think and carefully provide the best answers to the survey questions

Weekdone started as a pilot within a single team so we didn't have a formal evaluation and selection process. When the pilot was over, we had developed a skill and affinity for the tool with no clear objections, so no other tools were considered. Our process for regular evaluation of incumbent technology at renewal time asks us to consider the cost to value ratio and user adoption/satisfaction. I don't anticipate there being any reason to consider alternatives, other than the long term viability of small software companies.
Read full review Return on Investment The company continues to use it. It has led to employees being able to get there voices heard It has improved communication from leaders to the workforce. Read full review Using Weekdone has helped us meet our quarterly business objectives by tracking each employee's progress. We have been able to shift resources based on the progress tracked in Weekdone. If we find that a particular project is taking too long or costing too much, we are able to evaluate as needed. We were not able to see this as easily without Weekdone. Read full review ScreenShots
