With the Kudos integration for MS Teams, you can send recognition directly within Teams! To use Kudos in MS Teams, your organization must have an active Kudos subscription and a Kudos Admin must have installed the Kudos App for your organization.
Be sure to check out our tutorial video to learn the two ways you can send recognition and endorse Kudos messages through Teams. ⬇️
❗️Notifications will be generated each time there is a new Kudos recognition message posted as well as for each K+ given through MS Teams. Notifications for the Channel are controlled by each user, so be sure to update your preferences accordingly!
Option 1: Sending Recognition via the Kudos Bot
When sending a message in MS Teams, type @kudos to call the bot. Click on the Kudos app to open the Give Form. Select the level of recognition (Thank You, Good Job, Impressive, or Exceptional), enter the recipient(s), type a message, select qualities, and click Send!
Option 2: Sending Recognition via the Task Bar
You can also send recognition directly from your taskbar by clicking on the k★ icon. A pop-up window will appear with the Give Form. Next you can select the level of recognition, enter the recipient(s), add a message and qualities and click Send!
If you don't see the k★ icon, as shown below, you will first need to add the Kudos app to your Teams application. Instructions for adding an app can be found here: Add an app to Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Support
How to K+ Kudos Messages through MS Teams
When viewing the Kudos Wall feed on MS Teams, you can K+ a message directly! Hover over a message to display the message options and click on the ellipses icon on the right-hand side. Once you have clicked on this you will see an option appear that says More Actions, which will lead you to the K + button.
