Basics

You can use the Outlook Add-in to  Recognize someone, Give Feedback, Request Feedback or quickly capture a Private Note about someone.

Recognize

To get started, enter the name or names of the individuals you want to Recognize (note: The Outlook Add-in attempts to read the From: email you're currently reading and populate that user!). Add a backstory that paints a picture about why they deserve such accolades. Select a badge to apply to the post. That's it!

Give Feedback

To get started, enter the name of the individual you're providing feedback to. Note: The Outlook Add-in attempts to read the From: email you're currently reading and populate that user! 

Pick a Feedback template you'd like to use and polish it up with a quick description. Boom! You'll be redirected to fill out the feedback on the Quantum Workplace site.

Request Feedback

Enter the name of the individual you're requesting feedback for (often that's you). Pick a Feedback template you'd like to use and polish it up with a quick description. Boom! You'll be redirected to add Feedback Providers on the Quantum Workplace site.

Add a Private Note

Enter the name of the individual you're entering a new Private Note about. Note: The Outlook Add-in attempts to read the From: email you're currently reading and populate that user! 

Type in your subject and write your note, then click Save. Shazam! Your Private Note is now saved for later reference.
