You can recognise your employees and increase engagement by submitting Shout-outs for them. If you think a colleague has done a good job, you're able to tell them, and inform everyone else that you value them.
Shout-outs associated with Goals
Shout-outs can be submitted as part of a Goal, you will need to be at least a Reader of the Goal in question and the person receiving your Shout-out also needs to be a collaborator on the Goal. For more information on Goal permissions, take a look at the following article: User Roles and Permissions.
To submit a Shout-out, open the Goal and click the medal icon in the top right corner of the Goal. A dialog will appear where you need to input the name of the employee receiving the Shout-out and your feedback message, then click Submit.
All Goal associated Shout-outs will appear in the Goal Timeline.
Shout-outs not associated with Goals
For instances when there is not a specific Goal to associate a Shout-out to, you can submit a Shout-out from the Quick Add in the top of the side menu. Click the plus icon to view the menu and select Shout-out from the list.
Follow the same steps as above to submit the Shout-out.
Shout-outs regardless of whether they're attached to a Goal or not can be viewed in the Recent Shout-outs widget of the Dashboard. This can be filtered to a particular team or all teams.
You can also view a larger list of Shout-outs by going to Performance > Shout-outs.
This page is split into 3 sections - My Shout-outs, My Submitted Shout-outs and All Shout-outs.
My Shout-outs will show you all the Shout-outs you've received from other employees.
My Submitted Shout-outs will show you all the Shout-outs you have submitted and to which employee they are related.
Finally, you can view all Shout-outs for the organisation by going to the All Shout-outs page.
You can control who has the ability to submit and view Shout-outs within the General Settings.
Go to System Config > General Settings > Shout-outs.
