Pitches In Huddles Rollout Plan

Background

In Q4 2018 to Q1 2019 we are working on new functionality within Huddles that enables content creators to add recording, leaderboards, and reviewing of recordings. This is a step to make Huddles a flexible and robust mechanism for your reps to engage in wtihout having to jump between different locations in SalesHood.

Pitch to Pitch Module Conversion

With the improvements to pitch publishing, you will not be able to create new or clone existing standalone pitches (old functionality). This video shows you how to repurpose your standalone pitch content into the new pitch module format:

Rollout Plan

Step 1 – Q4 to early Q1 (Done)

Update our existing Huddle with functionality that mimics Pitches:

  • Ability to record
  • Ability to review recordings
  • Leaderboard of recordings 

This is a short list of the functionality that will be released over the next few releases.

Step 2 – early Q1 (Done)

Receive feedback on functionality and update as needed.

Step 3 – early/mid Q1 (Done)

Pause Pitch creation after functionality is updated. The existing created Pitches, prior to this, are still functional and can be used, cloned, shared, and more. Only the ability to create new Pitches will be turned off.

If you attempt to create a new Pitch, SalesHood will redirect you to the new Huddle functionality with instructions on how to use.

Step 4 – mid/late Q1 (Done)

After some time for existing pitches to finish, we will enable Pitches to be visible within the Library in their assigned categories. If a Pitch was not assigned a category, they will be placed in a “Pitches” category that is visible for everyone in your instance (it can be made confidential or edited anytime).

Once this step is complete the following will be in effect:
1. Pitches can no longer be cloned
2. Pitches can no longer be “Add Existing” within Learning Paths
3. Learning Paths with Pitches cannot be cloned

Please note that Pitches will not be deleted or removed, they will still be accessible in the library.

Step 5 – mid/late Q2 (Done)

Remove the “Pitches” tab in the navigation bar for all users. All Pitches will be accessible within the Library and search if needed for future review. 

Pitches that currently exist in a category (e.g. Onboarding) will appear in that category, although if they exist in the TBD category those pitches will be moved to a new “Pitches” category (per Step #4).

Please note that we are not enabling customers to merge old Pitches into the new Huddle functionality.

All done! You can now Pitch in a Huddle.
