Bonusly's Welcome Award is an Automated Award that will automatically give recognition to your teammates when they are added into Bonusly. The recognition post will appear in the public Recognition Feed, which allows the rest of your team to meet their new teammate and add on to the bonus if they would like. 

Since the Welcome Award is part of Bonusly's Awards feature, points come directly from the company, so there's no need to worry about managing allowances or Allowance Boosts.  

Configuring the Welcome Bot

The automated Welcome Award comes automatically installed and is pre-programmed with a sensible message and bonus amount. To make adjustments to the Welcome Award, head over to the Recognition > Awards page. Click on Automated to see the available awards.

To edit the messaging or amount of your Welcome Award, click the edit button on the rights side of the page.

A pop-up will appear that allows you edit the bonus text and amount.

To edit the amount, remove bonus_amount (keep the "+" symbol) and replace it with the point amount you would like to use and then click the 'Save' button:

Turning the Welcome Award on or off

You’ll see that the Welcome Award is on by default. To deactivate the Welcome Award, toggle the button next to the award name to gray.
