New features this month:
- Adding Attachments
- Documenting Expected Results
- Creating Decisions from Templates
- Flexible Decision flows
- N/A Support ratings
In addition to linking files from your decisions, you can now add attachments to your decisions in the Context & Information area on the sidebar.
Documenting Expected Results
When recording and communicating a final decision, you can now include the expected results. This clarifies the impact or business outcome expected from the decision and makes it easy to measure the results of the decision when following up.
Creating Decisions from Templates
You may have noticed a new Templates Tab in Cloverpop.
Templates are an easy way to start decisions that you make often. Templates can be pre-populated with Goals, Choices, Participants, and Tags so they don’t need to be entered each time you make the decision.
To frame a decision for input from others, select “Start From Template.” You will be able to update the decision question, choices, goals, participants, and tags when you frame your decision. The best practices are pre-set for each template but you can change them after you start a decision.
To record a decision using a template, select “Record From Template” next to the template you want to use.
Templates can be made Public to anyone in Cloverpop or Private for only the default participants.
Creating, Editing, and Removing Templates
Click on the Request New Template button or email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact a Cloverpop representative about creating a new template or modifying or removing templates.
Flexible Decision flows
You now have more flexibility when choosing which best practices to include in your decision flow. When choosing a flow, in addition to the slider, you can select or deselect specific best practices to include by checking or unchecking the boxes next to the best practices. For example, you might want to include risk and benefits of choices but not include identifying important information.
N/A Support ratings
Occasionally, you may be invited to rate your support for a decision where you don’t really feel like you are a stakeholder and have much to contribute. If you want to communicate that you reviewed the decision, without having to provide an explicit rating, you can now do that by providing a n/a (not applicable) rating.
The rating will show up alongside all the other ratings as n/a (not applicable):
