Learn the Basics

Keeping track of who’s who, who does what, and who works where is essential for companies of all sizes. Pingboard helps you keep everyone in the right place with the right information, so you can see your entire organization at-a-glance and dive into the details you need.

 

The Essentials

Org Chart

The beating heart of Pingboard is your Org Chart – it’s easy to build, fully searchable, and simple to navigate. But what is an Org Chart?

Org Charts provide a visual overview of how your company is organized. Need to know who heads up the IT Team, or who manages James in Accounting? Just check your Org Chart. Need to share your Org Chart with investors or someone else who’s not a part of your organization? We have tools for that, too.

Employee Directory

Pingboard makes contacting the people you work with simple, easy, and fast, but Pingboard’s Directory isn’t just for contact details. The beautiful, customized profiles allow you to get to know your coworkers on a personal level. Custom Fields let you collect and store any information you need, from certifications and food allergies to favorite movies and more.

Learn how to build your Org Chart and Directory in a single step

Teams 

Teams help you organize people into groups within your Directory – think of them as folders you can sort all of your people into. While most companies use Teams to represent departments, you might use them as project groups, or to help you represent multiple brands under your organization’s umbrella. You can create and belong to as many Teams as you want, and Admins choose whether a Team can be viewed or joined.

Locations

Locations let you organize people by office, complete with a physical address and a Google Maps view. You never have to ask who works where anymore – just check Pingboard.

 

Search

Pingboard's search is powerful, fast, and flexible. Every person, team, and custom field in Pingboard is searchable on the web or on your phone. For instance, if you need to find a great candidate to speak at an upcoming event, you can search “public speaking” to find everyone with that skill.

Advanced Search lets you find something more specific, like someone who works at the San Francisco branch who has public speaking skills and works in marketing. Combine multiple attributes to quickly find the exact people you’re looking for.

 

Mobile Apps

Our native iOS and Android apps puts your Org Chart and Directory in your hands wherever you go. Your information is always be up-to-date and search makes finding the right person quick and simple. You can sync your coworkers to the contacts on your phone so you’ll always know who’s calling. Managers can choose to receive notifications about upcoming birthdays and work anniversaries for their team. If your company uses the Out of Office integration, updating your status in just a few taps.

Who's Who

Ever forgotten a person’s name just as you’re bumping into them at the office? We all have.

That's why we created Who's Who, an addictive addition to our iOS and Android apps. Put names to faces in a fun, engaging, and competitive way. Compete with your coworkers for the high score and learn more about your coworkers in the process.
