Badges are a fun addition to the Kudos Awards function and can be used with or without points as a great way to recognize and congratulate a team member for a big accomplishment, new certification, or reaching an important goal. Kudos comes with a default library of Badges you can utilize, or you can add your own custom designs.
By default, Super Admins and Admins are able to send Kudos Awards. Limited Admin Privileges can be assigned to Users to allow them to send Kudos Awards and badges. If you'd like to learn more about setting up Badge Permissions to allow select users or departments to send specific Badges, please reach out to your Account Manager or our Support Team at email@example.com.

View & Customize Badges
To ensure that Badges are turned on for your account, begin by navigating to Admin ⚙️ > Account > Customize > Giving Kudos and enable Badges.
To view and add Custom Badges, navigate to Admin ⚙️ > Account > Customize > Badges. Kudos comes with a default library of Badges that you can add or remove. You can decide which Badges you want to make available by clicking the checkboxes in front of the Badge title.
To add a Custom Badge, click Custom and then click + New Badge under Badge Library. Add a name and description for the Badge, and upload the file from your computer. Badges should be 100px wide by 100px high. Once you’ve uploaded your Badge and given it a name and description, click Save.
You're welcome to design and add your own Custom Badges, or you can purchase a Kudos Success Services package to have your Badges custom designed by one of our talented designers.
Editing & Locking Badge Points
If your organization uses points, you can set a default amount of points associated with each Badge, and either lock the points amount or leave it editable for the sender to decide when giving out the Badge. You can also lock the points at zero if you want a specific badge to always be associated with no points.
To edit points associated with Badges, navigate to the Admin ⚙️ > Account > Customize > Badges. Click on the Badge you'd like to edit. Here you can edit the name, image, description and activate the badge:
If points are not locked for a specific badge, the sender will be able to set the points amount to anything within their Points to Give allocation. When points are locked to a Badge, they cannot be changed when sending a Kudos Award.
