Since I've moved into working full time remote for a very intensive and focused job I've noticed that it's been much harder to keep in contact with all of the team. It has become too clinical when talking just about the job or work tasks. The rapport still exists but you can't pick up on those all important emotional cues that let you know how things are going. I designed this app for Monday.com so that team members can hint to the team lead that they might need help. The idea is that it is used kindly to help out team members who may be struggling and find it difficult to communicate that.
What it does
The app lets you (as the team lead) pose questions to your team members. Those questions include asking them how they're feeling, how are they coping with their work-load and if they think they can achieve their goals. You can set the frequency to ask your team members these questions.
When your team answers you can view their answers on a line or bar chart. You're then able to generate insights into a private board which you can then use to act upon.
How I built it
I used the Monday.com SDK extensively combined with the Monday.com GraphQL API. I also used React, a few packages and a MongoDb database hosted by RestDb.io.
Challenges I ran into
I had a few challenges in regards to understanding how permissions work with Monday API. I visited the community and asked a question and then I visited the documentation which gave me the answer. In the end I answered my own post right before the Monday.com staff replied.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I thoroughly enjoyed using the GraphQL API, it makes everything a breeze.
What I learned
I became very interested in how the SDK was structured and made it so easy to make GraphQL calls.
What's next for Wellness
I'd like to expand it to cover more teams, more features, more insights and to make it as useful as possible.
