We've officially launched the beta phase of our Community Kudos program. 🎉 The program overview has been updated here.
We've made updates based on your feedback in comments, interviews, and our survey, and here are some of the biggest changes you will see:
New: You can now select a reason for why you are giving kudos as shown below:
Note: you can search for user by first name or last name but not both; the search box can't handle spaces. Until we are able to fix this bug, I recommend using last name as a workaround, as it tends to be more unique!
New: Progress meter! You can now see how far away you are from completing a challenge, as well as a challenge counter. Reminder: challenges are not retroactive at this time.
New: You can sort challenges by "Expiring soon" and "In progress." Click on any individual challenge to see your progress and a link to where you can complete it.
New: Your points tracker now includes the kudos you've been awarded and all your other points activity in one place.
Remember this is a beta! Points and challenges may change at any time, although we'll do our best as always to keep you updated and give you a heads up before any major changes. Enjoy the new challenges you will see and the new functionality, and let us know in the comments if you have any suggestions or questions, or find any issues.
Thank you for trying out the Kudos program!
