Posting Recognition

You may post a recognition from either the Home page or the Recognition tab. From either page, click Give Recognition and enter the name(s) of the coworkers you'd like to recognize, write a comment about why they deserve to be recognize, and select a badge that relates to the recognition. You can also choose to add an image or video or select a goal that is related to the post. Once you click Post, the Recognition will appear in your organization's news feed and the individual(s) you recognized will receive an email notification and a bell alert. 

 

Posting Recognition with a Specialty Badge

Your organization is able to set up "Specialty Badges", or badges that can only be awarded by certain individuals. If you have access to a Specialty Badge, you'll see these badges with a "lock" icon in the corner.

Using a Specialty badge is exactly like using the other badges, except:

  • You can "backdate" the recognition: Unlike Core Value Recognition, you can "backdate" a specialty badge.  For example, if you've had a Dash Award program for the past eight years, you can post recognition for past winners and backdate the recognition to avoid cluttering the feed.  
  • Note: If you choose to backdate a recognition post, the post will appear in the timeline based on the backdated date rather than today's date/time. That is, it will not be posted as the most recent recognition in the newsfeed.
