  4. Paste in the link from step 1 into the URL box. The URL must contain "https://" or it will not work.

    1. If you are looking for an icon, we can provide a default icon. This cannot be customized but will be for free. Click the link below to request this.

  6. Share this with a Team(s) of your choosing. Anyone within this Team will be able to share Kudos.

  7. Add this to the Section of your choosing.

  8. We highly recommend making this a QuickLink using the toggle towards the bottom of the page so it's easy to locate for your users but this not a required step.

Sending Kudos

  1. Head to the Hub

  2. When you want to recognize or appreciate an employee, click or tap ‘Recognize a colleague’

  3. You’ll see a standard set of awards available which can be customized based on the user's needs: thank you, you’re a star, work anniversary, happy birthday, congratulations... Select the option that best fits your situation.

  4. Enter the name(s) of the user(s) you'd like to recognize and select "next".

  5. Personalize your recognition with any notes. We encourage a brief summary of why you're sending the kudos i.e. a summary of the situation, the specific number of years for the anniversary, a quick memory for in a happy birthday message, etc.

  6. Preview and send. You can still edit after posting.


I can't see the Microapp in the Hub.

If you can't find the Microapp within the Hub please make sure you are a part of the Team this is shared to.

Can anyone send Kudos?

Anyone with access to the Team this microapp is shared with will be able to send Kudos. Please ensure that the audience only includes members you want to be able to access. However, regardless of who is on the Team, you can send Kudos to any user within your organization.

Who can add the Kudos microapp?

You will need admin privileges (Team Admin, Content Moderator, or Organization Admin) to add the Microapp to your Hub.
