For all users.
Giving recognition is probably the easiest thing you'll do at work, and a great way to make a colleague's day! Let's walk through a quick example of how to give recognition in the Bonusly app. My colleague Abby just finished a company website update to graphics on the homepage. Their efforts have lead us to having a beautifully updated, modern website. I want to recognize the contribution they made by giving them recognition.
Each recognition requires four things:
Let’s go through these four components together!
When you first log in to Bonusly, you are greeted 👋🏼 with a sample text that is automatically generated as an example of how to give a recognition.
The sample text will disappear the moment you begin typing and clicking to add components to your recognition post! 👍🏼
1. The Amount
We'll begin by clicking the "Amount" icon box and selecting or typing in the amount we would like to give:
2. The Recipient
Next, click the "Recipient" icon box and select the recipient(s) from the dropdown, or just start typing their name into the give field after the '@' symbol.
If adding multiple recipients, each recipient added will get the amount entered.
Example: if 3 recipients are added, and the amount is set to 50 points, the bonus will issue 150 total to give each recipient 50 points
We will give to Abby in this example:
3. The Reason
Then, add the reason for giving the recipient (Abby in this example) this recognition:
4. The Hashtag
To add a hashtag, click the "Hashtag" icon button and a list of company values appears. We'll select "#innovation" from the example list:
(Tip: Don't see the tag you want? No problem, you can add any tag you want by just typing it in.You can add as many additional tags as you want!)
5. Click 'Give!'
Click the 'Give!' button. You just recognized your colleague! 🎉
We've just given Abby recognition in the Bonusly app! They get an email notification about the recognition, and the recognition appears at the top of the company's Bonusly recognition feed:

Make a mistake? The 'Edit | Delete' options will remain available for a few minutes so you can make changes. Once the option disappears, you'll need to contact your company's Bonusly administrator to delete the recognition and try again.
Hate clicking boxes? We've got you covered. Just type your recognition directly into the give field using this format:
+10 @abby for the amazing website update! #innovation
Hit the 'Give' button, and you're all set!
