Everyone’s favorite map feature just got even better!

As workforces plan for remote, hybrid, and returns to office, having an understanding of where your people are can have big advantages for communication and visibility across your org.

As part of our UI redesign, we’re launching our new and improved map feature!

For leaders, these changes provide an even easier way to access pivotal information such as employee time zones. It also gives teams the chance to show their support for their employees by sending care packages to employees.

For employees, this can make them feel more connected to each other, even something as small as seeing your coworkers on the map — and noticing that someone who is usually in NY is actually close to you in Boston now, can help build a relationship.

Read on for coverage on the newest features updates!

Pins and marker upgrades

Employee locations are now marked by photo avatars, helping you put faces to locations. The new avatars also add an element of joy and humanity. As before, exact locations and addresses remain private.
