Share Your Recognition and Start a Conversation
Integrating your Kudos profile with LinkedIn and Skype is a great way to communicate with your peers and share recognition with your broader network of colleagues and contacts.
Note: you may be unable to link either Skype, LinkedIn, or both, depending on your Administrative settings. If you have questions about Integrations, contact your Kudos Administrator.
To integrate your Kudos account with your LinkedIn profile, click on the Me tab at the top of the page. Now click the Edit button in the bottom right corner of your profile picture. At the top of the page, click the tab that says Advanced Settings. Scroll down to the 'My Apps' section at the bottom of the page and click on LinkedIn. Click the button that says Connect your Kudos Account to LinkedIn.
You'll be taken to a new page where you can enter your LinkedIn username and password. When you're done, click Allow Access.
If you go back to the Me tab, you should see a LinkedIn icon below your profile photo. Anyone who views your profile can now click that icon and be taken to your LinkedIn profile page.
Depending on your Administrator's settings, you will now be able to post Kudos messages you send or receive to your LinkedIn profile. Just click the three dot icon that appears beside the K+ and Comments buttons on any Kudos message you have sent or received.
*Please Note: As long as you are the sender or recipient of the Kudos Message you will have the ability to share to LinkedIn.
The message will post to LinkedIn within 5 minutes of making the request in Kudos.
Example of Message that will be posted to LinkedIn:
Connecting your Skype account to Kudos follows the same steps as connecting your LinkedIn account. Click Me > Edit > Advanced Settings and scroll down to the 'My Apps' section and click Skype. Type in your Skype username and click Save. In the Me tab you'll now see a Skype icon below your profile photo. Now when someone views your profile, they can click the Skype icon to start a chat session with you.
