Many of you have looked for better ways to do 1:1s so that you can build momentum in conversations with your team members. Maybe your questions have gotten stale over time, or maybe you're not sure what to ask.

Use decks in your 1:1s to see fresh questions each time you meet 💡

What is a deck?

A deck is a collection of 1:1 questions. They're curated by Uptick and organized by topic, such as remote work or professional development.

Once a deck is added to a 1:1, each time you meet Uptick will show a new question from that deck in that 1:1.

Even if each question in a deck doesn't entirely hit home, they can help prompt other conversations. Using decks will bring variety to your 1:1s without you needing to manually switch up the questions all the time!


How to add decks to your 1:1s

You can add as many decks as you'd like to a 1:1. Only one question from each deck will be displayed in each 1:1. Once you've added a deck, it is removed from the list of options.

Access decks through the "Add Question" option

Whether you are setting up a new 1:1, editing a 1:1, or editing a question set, view and add decks by clicking on the blue "Add Question" button.

If you are building a 1:1 or a question set from scratch, you'll see deck options appear on the starting page:

Once there are one or more questions added, access additional decks via the "Add Question" button. (See above).

Click the "shuffle" icon to browse the questions in a deck

Once you've added a deck, you'll see the deck name and underneath that it says "Next 1:1 question will be:".

Click the shuffle icon on the right side to view other questions in the deck and choose which question will show up first.


What does a question from a deck look in a 1:1?

For both managers and team members viewing a 1:1, a question from a deck shows up just like any other question but with a symbol in the upper right corner. Hovering over the symbol tells you the name of the deck.
