What are Kudos?

Kudos are awards and encouragements that can be handed out by a member of staff to another member of staff in the same location.

How do I view my Kudos?

On the' You' page you can easily see if you have received any new Kudos and from there you can also give Kudos.

To see all of your Kudos, click on 'See All' on the right hand side of the Kudos section. From this page you'll also see 'Kudos Sent' next to the 'My Kudos' tab where you can see all the Kudos you have handed out, and the 'Hall of Fame'.

In the admin you can also choose to show the Kudos component on the 'Home' page on Engage. If you have received a new Kudos which is unopened this will display. If you have no unopened Kudos then you'll be able to see the most recent kudos handed out within your organisation.

Hall of Fame πŸŽ‰

The Hall of Fame shows all Kudos that have been handed out within your organisation. You can view 'Your Location', 'Your Region' or 'All'.

This is a great encouragement for employees to get involved and to hand out Kudos!

How do I create a Kudos?

Kudos can be created on the web only by anyone who has the 'manage kudos' permission. This is usually head office and managers. For example, you may want to create a kudos to hand out to employees when they have reached a certain milestone such as a sales target.

  1. To create a Kudos go to the 'Manage' page

  2. Select 'Create Kudos' in the Kudos section and you'll be directed to the Kudos creator Β 

  3. Now it's the fun part! πŸ˜ƒ

  4. Enter a title for the Kudos

  5. Select which roles can give out the Kudos. Select all roles or specific roles.

  6. Choose a graphic. The default graphics are managed by Ocasta. Contact the Ocasta team if you'd like to use your own custom graphics for Kudos.

  7. Check the preview to make sure you are happy with your new Kudos

  8. You can either choose to 'Publish' the Kudos straight away or you can 'Save Draft'

How do I view all Kudos created?

To see all Kudos that have been created, go to the 'Manage' page and under Kudos select 'Edit Kudos', Here you will see all published, draft and archived Kudos listed. Select a Kudos to edit it.

How can I give Kudos?

You can give Kudos across all platforms.

If you have the Kudos send to anyone permission you will be able to give kudos to anyone within your organisation. If you have the send to my location permission, then you'll only be able to give Kudos to people in your location. These permissions are set against a role in the admin.
