Meld is a one-of-a-kind people alignment platform that helps people agree on important tasks and stay accountable to get more done, together.
Need something from your team? Want to be sure everyone is on board with a plan before you get to work? Propose a new task by selecting ‘New Pact’ from the main menu, which pulls up the New Pact form. Write a clear description of what needs to get done. Then assign a due date, and give your pact a short title to make it easy to recognize.
Define who needs the work, who is doing the work and who will confirm that work was actually completed with Meld’s Opt-In Roles:
Hit “Create” and the Pact is on its way! You’ll be notified as people Opt-In and can reassign roles if people decline.
When you are asked to be the Actor on a pact, you are being asked by the Requestor to do the work. Some questions to help determine whether to Opt In or Opt Out:
If you are ready to do the work, tap Accept and get going!
Need more information before you decide? Leave questions for the Requestor using pact comments.
When you are asked to be the Requestor, you are being asked to confirm you need this pact to happen and offer feedback on the plan. Here are some questions to help you determine whether to Request or Decline a pact:
If the pact looks good to you, tap ‘Request’ and the Actor will now be notified and asked to accept their role.
Want to accept the role but with some adjustments to the plan? Tap ‘Edit’ and update the pact details before saving changes and Requesting the updated pact.
Being the Checker is a way to step up and help people stay accountable to their commitments and make sure things don’t accidently fall through the cracks.
The Checker is only responsible for answering the question: did the Actor do the work described in the pact – yes or no? They are not grading or evaluating the quality of the work itself.
Ready to help out on a pact? Accept the Checker role and look out for a notification when the pact is marked complete.
