The Kudo web part is a Powell 365 web part found on the Gamification center.
The "Kudos" section lets you praise company employees for their achievements. You can give Kudos to your colleagues from the Powell Intranet portal to the Wall of Kudos.
This will create more engagement for employees and make them feel valued at work. It'll permit you to give recognition to your coworkers for their work.
How does it work?
HR managers define kudos sent by/to users in the Gamification center.
For example, you want to give Kudos to Marc for teamwork. To give Kudos, click the icon displayed on the web part.
You will select a person you want to give kudos to. When a user sends a Kudo to someone, he can include a personal message attached to the Kudo received.
The selected person will receive a Kudo in a Teams conversation with the personal message. He will also be able to see all the kudos he received on his Gamification profile page.
*You can only give the Kudo once a day.
Kudos are included by default on our standalone Gamification center template. See the complete documentation on kudos on our helpdesk to learn how to deploy and use it here.
All given kudos will appear on the Kudo's wall. Click the button "Kudo's wall" to access it.
The page will display all Kudos given and received by employees.
Deploy from Sharepoint
To add the Kudo web part to Sharepoint, follow the introduction to deploy it on your page.
No settings are required. Thanks to the Gamification center, it'll directly display the available Kudos and allow you to give them to your colleagues.
Deploy from Powell Manager
Follow the step-by-step guide below to add our Kudo web part through Powell Manager.
First of all, you'll have to go to the page where you want to add the web part.
To do so, you have to go to your site settings and select (or create) the page where you want to add it.
You can do so by selecting "Powell Intranet" in the Powell Manager navigation bar. Then select the "Design" section, and click "Sites" under the "SharePoint templates" list.
Then you can click the "edit" button of the site, which contains the page where you want to add your web part, or create a new one by clicking on the "Create a new site template."
After this step, you'll be redirected to the following page, where you will be able to manage your site pages by selecting "Pages" in the left navigation.
We can now pursue the page edition to add the Kudo web part. You can either "Create a new page" or edit one that's already been created.
This feature is a simple web part that can be added to your page, so it can be integrated as a new element to your page.
If you decide to create a new page or edit one, you'll be redirected to the page edition.
At the bottom of this page, you have the page components shown depending on how you've decided to add some rows and elements.
You have to click on "Add a web part" depending on where you want to have your Kudo web part.
You have to fill the form with the site url of your Gamification Center so the web part can access all the data it needs.
And when you're done, you can save your web part by clicking on the "save" button under your form.
