How to do it with WorkplaceMeasure success
1. Measure success
Go to the Insights in the Admin Panel to find statistics that will help you quantify the success you’ve had so far. Check to see how many people have claimed their accounts out of all people invited from the People tab. You’ll also find the number of daily active, weekly active, and monthly active users.
Go to the Content tab to see the number of posts, comments, reactions, and messages your Workplace community has had over the past 28 days.
And check out the new Connections tab to get a clearer view of how people in your organization are connecting and sharing across your Workplace.
Share these statistics in a post in your company announcement groups, along with a teaser for a Live event with your executives and more information on how you’ll be celebrating. Make sure a Workplace Admin marks your post as important so nobody in your organization misses it.
