We're thrilled that you're interested in giving Premium Donut for Onboarding a try! Donut Premium Onboarding will automate every key step from making targeted introductions to gathering feedback from New Hires, so you can eliminate the need for manual tasks and reminders.

Installing Donut

If Donut isn't already installed on your Slack workspace, that's step #1! Just go to donut.ai and hit the big "add to Slack" button.

We'll walk you through how to complete installation from there. You don't need to configure or use pairings in order to activate your free trial of Donut for onboarding, though you can if you'd like to. 

PS: Have a question about how we handle data security or privacy? We've got more info right here.

Activating Your Free Trial

Once Donut is installed on your Slack workspace, it's super quick to get your 14-day free trial of Premium Onboarding up and running.

Log into your account at donut.ai using your Slack credentials, and Donut will prompt you to start setup. If this is your first time setting up Onboarding, we'll be asking you what kinds of content you'd like to send to new hires. 

Premium includes our free pairings, plus:

  • an onboarding buddy or mentor system with automated reminders to buddies to check in with new hires 
  • polls that collect new-hire feedback after one week, two weeks, 30 days, and 90 days
  • nudges to managers just before 30/60/90 days reminding them to schedule check-ins with their new hires
  • create an unlimited amount of fully customizable onboarding templates and messages, allowing you to create drip campaigns to your team
  • send messages to key stakeholders beyond just buddies and managers (for instance, team-specific mentors, IT, recruiters, etc.)
  • send important pre-boarding content to managers and other stakeholders before a new hire starts, for example:– reminders to your IT department to order a computer– reminders to People Ops to gather all new hire paperwork– reminders to managers to set up new hire’s desk, add them to team meetings,       and send them a welcome email
  • create role, department, or geo-specific onboarding paths so that, for example, an engineer in London would receive different content than a marketer in NYC

Free Trial: What to Expect

Over the next 14 days, you'll be able to log into your dashboard to add new hires, and monitor their progress in real time. You can also opt into receiving weekly summary reports sent via email. We've got more info on how to use the dashboard and set up reports right here.

You can onboard as many new hires as you'd like during the 14-day free trial period, and invite other admins from your team to log into the dashboard as well if you'd like. You can also build unlimited custom Templates and add in different stakeholders to get a sense of how everything works.

Once the free trial ends, we'll automatically deactivate your account unless you upgrade to a paid subscription.
