What is the difference between an Open and a Scheduled Huddle?

To learn about what a huddle is, please click here.

Huddle is a compilation of learning tools, or modules (videos, exercises, tests, LMS / SCORM training), designed to facilitate in-organization learning about a particular topic.

The purpose of an Open Huddle is to contain training content that is openly shared with anyone internally with a SalesHood license.

These are the traits of an Open Huddle:

  • Searchable and browsable through the SalesHood Library accessible to anybody
  • Video and exercises can be consumed and completed by anyone
  • Does not have a due date
  • A participant does not need to be assigned to the open huddle to complete its content
  • No host
  • Self-serviced, self-paced

Examples of Use Cases to apply Open Huddles:

  • A compilation of the best elevator pitches within the company
  • Company history and culture training

Within a Learning Path:

  • An open huddle can be added into different learning paths (each containing different participants)
  • Since it is “open,” the responses/submission of the participants will be carried over from one learning path to another. Participants from Learning Path 1 will be able to view the responses from participants of Learning Path 2, vice versa.

The purpose of a Scheduled Huddle is to contain training content that is meant to be assigned to a specific set of user(s) to be completed within a set date with a host (manager, coach) overseeing the training.

These are the traits of a Scheduled Huddle:

  • Searchable and browsable through the SalesHood Library. Video can be watched, and supporting documents can be downloaded.
  • Exercises/Tests can only be completed by a participant if:
    • 1. The huddle is scheduled to be completed by a specified date,
    • 2. The participant(s) has been assigned to it
  • Contains automatic email alerts reminding participants to complete the work. To learn more about these alerts, please click here.
  • Contains a “host” who is the admin or person who is overseeing the training content
  • Contains a specified participant list

Examples of Use Cases to apply a Scheduled Huddles:

  • Product Demo training assigned to Account Executives
  • Deal reviews assigned to reps and hosted by said rep’s manager
  • Product launch training
  • QBR Reviews

Within a Learning Path:

  • A scheduled huddle can be added into different learning paths (each containing different participants)
  • Since it is a Scheduled Huddle, the responses/submission of the participants will NOT BE carried over from one learning path to another – simply stating, the responses/submissions are closed off. Participants from Learning Path 1 will NOT BE able to view the responses from participants of Learning Path 2, vice versa.
