What is the Pairwise tool for?

    • The Pairwise step in Platform is an “A/B” idea comparison tool. The evaluator can then select the idea they like better - or select neither idea before being presented with the next pairing.
      • Evaluator is presented with two ideas at a time, and selects the best one
      • After all ideas are chosen / not chosen, an algorithm then ranks the ideas based on a point system.
    • When a Pairwise action item is triggered, the evaluator / screener(s) will be able to select the best idea from each comparison.
    • Note: The Pairwise Tool is only available in the Custom App. 


Configure the Pairwise Tool:

    • To get started with the Pairwise tool, navigate to Step Ellipsis Menu --> Configure Pairwise:


    • In the Pairwise configuration section, the Pipeline Manager will need to set the following parameters:
      • Evaluators: Select the users who will review the ideas.
      • Due Date: The administrator / manager can set the due date dynamically from date assigned or manually select a date if needed.


      • Idea Editing: Assignees who are not already administrators will be able to edit some idea attributes such as idea title, description and category.
      • Action Items: Cancel open action items when submission moves out of Step.
      • Send Email Alert: Allows the manager to enable or disable the email alert on assignment.


      • Recurring Reminders: Send email reminders to assignees after X days of inactivity.
      • Action Item Escalation: Notify certain recipients when an action item hasn’t been completed in X days.
    • Select Activate to complete the configuration. 


Assignee's experience:

    • The selected evaluators will complete all assigned Pairwise action items by selecting which ideas they like best on each presented pair.
