Every Bonusly user has a monthly allowance that they can give to their peers to recognize great work and valuable contributions. By default, each user receives the same amount.
Bonusly admins can set the size of their users' monthly allowance by entering it into the 'Monthly Allowance' field in the Company > Settings tab of the Admin panel. You can choose any amount greater than 10.
In addition to setting the monthly allowance, you can also choose a name or a symbol for your custom currency. Custom currencies let you have a little fun and show off your team's culture! In this example, I've chosen to use "Clovers" as my company's currency name.
Alternatively, I can choose to use an emoji (the clover, in this case) 🍀as my custom currency sign:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Custom currencies always exchange at rate of 10:1. Ten units of your custom currency equals one unit of your base currency. You can see this exchange rate listed under the 'Custom currency sign' towards the bottom of the page:
When you're done, don't forget to click "Save Settings" once you have everything the way you want it. When you click "Save Settings", your changes will be reflected immediately. 🎉
