At the heart of Peoplelogic.ai sits Lexi - the AI that helps your team perform better. Lexi helps you access insights, sends you daily and weekly reminders about what's important, and ensures you get the most out of Peoplelogic on your way to an improved employee experience.
Lexi uses natural language so you can communicate with the AI intuitively, whether you're in our own application, or your favorite team communication tool like Slack. In an effort to make it as easy as possible to communicate with Lexi, we've tried to describe the types of things that you can say to the AI and what information the tool will surface.
Starting a Conversation
Lexi makes it easy to get the insights you need about your team using simple language. To start getting insights, you need to speak Lexi's language. For insights, all inquiries will start with one of the following:
- What's the
- Show me
Then you follow that with the type of data you'd like to get back or indicate that you want a time series graph. Here are a few examples:
show daily activity by openness
what's the top stay factor?
show emotional range by skill
show activity by team
show activity by team and skill
Read on for more details about the details of these types of queries.
Time Series Queries
Now that you know how to start talking to Lexi, there are many cases where you want to see how your team is performing over a period of time or how their engagement or personality insights have evolved over a period of time. For that, Lexi interprets your need for a time series display of data and renders the output as a graph instead of a table. For example:
See the Collections section for more information on what you can group by.
Lexi understands a variety of different options to help you scope your inquiries to specific dates or date ranges and to limit the amount of data you return.
First, to limit the amount of data you return (specifically for non-time series queries), simply use top or bottom and then the number of results you'd like. For example:
what's the bottom stay factor?
show me the top 3 employees by stay factor
You can even limit that to a date range, as we'll see next. Here's an example:
In general, there are three different ways to limit the results by date dates - starting, until, ending or in the past time period. Let's look at some examples:
show daily git activity by team starting 3 months ago until 1 month ago
In this example, we're telling Lexi to look back 3 months ago until 1 month ago. We could also have said 3 weeks ago until 1 week ago and Lexi would have understood that as well or even asking for the activity for the past 2 weeks (or in the past 2 weeks):
Additional Lexi Commands
Lexi also has certain "assistant" capabilities depending on the context that you start the conversation in. For example, from within Slack you can instruct Lexi to create a team and import employees from an existing Slack channel with the following:
/lexi create a team
/lexi create a team from #dev
Additionally, if you just want to import a channel into your existing primary team, do the following:
/lexi update my team with the #dev members
Remember, you can only map a team to a channel once and you can't execute the update if it has already been mapped to another team.
Lexi also understands things like 'hello' or 'help' or even 'good morning' to help you with the items you need to be focused on first thing in the morning to better manage your team.
