This allows staff members to nominate colleagues for awards. Nominations can be approved by managers and the awards display on an awards stream. Awards can be your own design or use our pre-set images.
Ensure your new awards feature is enabled, go to your System > Configuration > Global Settings. Click on the Features tab and enable Awards.
Once turned on, use the menu search for Awards and choose Manage Awards. Or go to Staff > Staff Settings > Manage Awards.
Creating an Award
Use the Create a new award button to get started.
Enter the title for your award and then choose who can nominate this award. You will also need to choose one or more of the levels or roles so they can approve them too. Just use the ‘Can Approve’ checkbox on the right side.
You can use any combination of levels and roles.
Then it’s time to set up the actual award. Choose to upload an image or use an icon we’ve provided:
For icons, you can also choose the colour. Once selected, you’ll see a preview of the award.
For images you upload, we recommend a 200px by 200px transparent background PNG. Please remember that some staff view the site in high-contrast mode or dark mode so it needs to work in all situations.
Once saved, this will instantly be available for staff to nominate. You can copy, edit and remove awards anytime from the Manage Awards page.
Nominate an award
There are two ways to allow nominations of awards. By default, this is done via a staff member’s profile. Simply go straight to the staff member’s profile. Under their new Awards tab, you’ll see the option to nominate an award:
If you can approve the award then it will instantly be added to the staff member’s page and show up on the new Awards feed.
You can also grant permission to nominate any staff member for an award. This grants permission to view all staff within the system and nominate them for an award; even if you wouldn’t normally see their account. The permission is called “Nominate Awards to any Staff Member”
Staff will then receive a menu option to nominate an award which will load a page of staff with a filter option:
Choosing a staff member, will allow you to choose the award to nominate:
And then finally to complete the reason for the nomination and to confirm the request.
12.4.2. Approving Awards
New nominations will appear in your notifications box on the dashboard automatically. The approval process is straightforward; if you choose to reject a nomination then you should provide a reason in the popup.
Approved awards will instantly be emailed through to the staff member and they will appear on the new awards feed page. This page displays all of the awards for staff you have access to across the organisation.
Awards can also be seen on each staff member’s profile page.
