The 'Welcome Bot' will immediately give a bonus to each new user when you add them to Bonusly. This can be a really great way to announce and welcome new teammates, and helps new teammates get off to a fun start because they earned a bonus for making the very smart decision to join your team! 🎉 

The bonus will appear in the bonus feed, which allows the rest of your team to meet their new teammate and add on to the bonus if they would like. 

Points come directly from the company, so there's no need to worry about managing allowances or allowance boosts.
