Kudos can be used with or without points. Either way, users will still be able to send unlimited Kudos recognition messages to their peers! If points are turned off, all Kudos messages will be sent with no points and KudosRewards will not be accessible.
You can turn off points in two ways:
⚙️ > Account > Customize > Giving Kudos
From here, un-check the Points box and click Save.
⚙️ > User Admin > Titles
Just scroll to the bottom of the list of Titles and look for the Turn Points OFF button at the bottom right.
After turning points off, users will still be able to give unlimited Kudos recognition to anyone, but these messages will never include points. The system will be stripped of all Kudos points, which can be recovered by turning points back on.
If you wish to turn points on, simply use either of the above two methods for turning them off, but do the opposite. If you want some users but not others to be able to send Kudos points with their messages, be sure to leave points on. You can then set specific Job Titles to zero points, or set individual users to zero points.
