1. Create Your Password
Once you have been invited to Kudos by your Administrator, you will receive an email with a link to set your password. The link will direct you to a page where you can type in a password of your choice, sign in, and start using Kudos.
Note: The only way to join your peers' Kudos account is by following the link in the invitation email you receive from your Administrator. If you sign up to Kudos on your own, you will be creating a new company account completely separate from your peers.
2. Edit Your Personal Information
When your account was created, your name, phone, location, department, and job title were entered for you. Verify this information here and make any edits necessary. Please keep in mind that you cannot change your job title. Contact your Administrator if you have questions.
3. Set Up Your Personal Profile
To set up your personal profile go to:
Another way to edit your profile is to click View Profile on your Me page, and then Edit.
In your profile, you may not be able to edit certain things, such as your job title or who you report to. To change this information, please contact your Administrator using the link provided.
To input information about yourself in your personal profile, you can either input each category manually, or authorize LinkedIn to auto-fill the information that you have already provided in your LinkedIn account. However, once you have overridden your profile information with LinkedIn, you cannot undo the override.
4. Add Personal Information to Your Profile
You may fill out or leave blank any of the fields in your profile
If you set something to 'Private', only you and your supervisor will be able to see it. If you set something to 'Public', only those users within your organization’s Kudos account will be able to see it.
Add information to your profile by clicking the + Add School/Family Member/Website button at the bottom of each section
To edit any information, just click on the text, edit the information, and click Save
To delete information, click the Remove button and confirm deletion
5. Add a Profile Picture
You had a chance to edit your picture when you first signed up, but in case you didn't have a picture file handy then, you can always add or edit your picture whenever you'd like. Still under My Settings > Profile.
Select a photo from your computer up to 5 MB in size, and in .jpg, .png, or .gif file type
Wait a few seconds for the system to upload it — your picture will change and save when it’s ready
6. Send Kudos!
- Click the Give Kudos button in the top-right corner of any page, and start recognizing great work.
7. Keep Track of Your Kudos Points
Go to the Me tab and look under your profile picture on the left sidebar
The blue number where it says Points To Give indicates how many Kudos Points you have to give out through the remainder of the month. On the first day of the next month, these points will refresh and any unused points will not rollover.
The green number where it says Points Balance indicates the number of Kudos Points received to date and available for redemption. If you run out of Points To Give in the month but feel as though a peer deserves points of recognition for a job well done, you may give some of the points in your Points Balance to others.
We hope this helps! If you have any questions, please "submit a request" at the top of this page and one of our friendly staff will be happy to assist you.
