New features supporting v5 Holacracy are now available!

December 01, 2020

Is your organization running the beta version 5.0 of Holacracy?

If so, you should know that there are some exciting new features, available now.

1. Core roles are now hidden on the org chart. If those roles (Secretary, Facilitator, Circle Lead, and Circle Rep) are unfilled, they're also removed from the list of roles on the circle page. We're interested in your feedback on this feature, so please let us know if you have any comments!

2. Role linking is now available for premium v5 orgs. Premium orgs now have an option in Governance to invite roles from other circles to join any circle that would like their input or support. Later on, there will be an option for the new circle to add Governance to the linked role, such as new accountabilities in the new circle, so keep your eye out for that one.

3. In-line editing for single-filled circles is available. If you're the only member of a circle, you should be able to make edits to the circle's roles, directly from the role pages. Look for the pencil icon and click that to change the purpose of roles, add accountabilities, etc. This removes the need to open a meeting to make these changes.

4. "Break Down Role" has gone away, streamlining the process of turning roles into circles. Now, for the roles you fill, if you want to add internal Governance, your options are "Start Meeting" and "Add Subrole".
