chiefonboarding timeline overview


Demo video:


  • Automatically provision user accounts and trigger webhooks, see for a list of integrations or create your own!
  • Pre-boarding: onboarding doesn't start on day 1, it starts before that. Build pre-boarding pages to welcome new hires before they start.
  • To do items: keep track of the things that your new hires need to do and allow them to fill in forms.
  • Resources: let them search through the knowledge base and complete courses so they are quickly up to speed with colleagues.
  • Sequences: drip feeding items over time or based on the completion of a to do item. Avoid the overwhelming feeling.
  • Badges: reward new hires for the things they have done. This also helps to keep them motivated.
  • Introductions: introduce people to new hires.
  • Admin to do items: collaborate with colleagues on things that need to be done for the new hire.
  • Multilingual: English, Dutch, Portuguese, German, Turkey, French, Spanish, and Japanese are all supported. Need another language? Send us an email!
  • Timezones: It doesn't matter where your new hire lives. You can adjust the timezone per new hire, so they don't get messages in the middle of the night!
  • Slack bot and dashboard: your new hires can use the dashboard or the Slack bot. Both provide all features and can be used standalone.
  • Customizable: use your logo, add your color scheme, change the email template and even customize the bot to your liking. No one will know you are using ChiefOnboarding.
  • Transparency, freedom, and privacy: ChiefOnboarding is completely open-source and licensed under AGPLv3.
  • Host it yourself on your own infrastructure or let us host it for you!
