Bonusly's Welcome Bot is an Automated Award that will automatically give a bonus to your teammates when they are added into Bonusly. The welcome 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. 

Since the Welcome Bot 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 Welcome Bot comes automatically installed with your Bonusly account, and is pre-programmed with a sensible welcome message and bonus amount. To make adjustments to the Welcome Bot, head over to the Awards page.

To edit the message or amount of your Welcome Bot, click the pencil icon on the right:

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 Bot on or off

To turn the Welcome Bot off, click the 'pause' button on the right:
