Rypple – Get Constructive Feedback Fast


Rypple provides an easy way to get constructive feedback on the issues that matter to you. Whether you want to find out about what you should wear to the company party or how you did in your recent presentation, the site makes it easy for you to get the information you need quickly. Rypple started as a way to help people get reviews of their performance so that they could learn and improve. Unlike the typical process where reviews come at infrequent intervals and lacks constructive feedback, with Rypple you can both give and get candid feedback that is truly helpful.

Asking your first question is as simple as creating it, adding the email addresses of the people you want to ask and adding your personal details. Emails are received once someone has answered your question, and full text copies can be viewed online at the Rypple website. The entire process is quick and requires minimal effort to achieve great results.

Once the answers arrive, you can label them, share the feedback, and let your advisers (you can have up to 20) know how you felt about the feedback. This makes it a truly interactive process. This site really delivers what it promises.

Practical Uses:

  • Get quality feedback from your students on your teaching methods
  • Improve communication among small groups and teams
  • Integrate Rypple into your company for on-the-spot performance reviews
  • Cut down on the number of unnecessary meetings by collecting feedback through Rypple

Insider Tips:

  • Use Rypple to create a micro-poll to test the views on an issue
  • Create groups which are relevant to particular topics to get targeted feedback
  • Import your contacts through the online tool to create an instant network of advisers
  • Check the status on projects that you are tracking

  • The site is attractive and easy to navigate
  • Rypple displays usage information on the key issues that people are tracking
