In a nutshell, here's some of the commonly asked questions:

  • What can RewardNation NOT see and do in your Slack workspace?

    We cannot:

    • See and access your private channels. Which means you also cannot post recognition messages in those private channels. Recognitions can only be posted in public channels.
    • Read any of your messages in all channels, other than recognition messages.
    • This means that although your recognition messages can be posted onto public channels, we will not be able to read any other messages posted in those public channels. Except for that recognition message.
  • What can RewardNation see in your Slack workspace?

    • Name, icon, and emails of your Slack users - so that you can invite them onto the .RewardNation app, which will automatically create their user profile.
    • Name of your public channels - so that you can post recognitions onto those channels, eg. #marketing.
    • Recognition messages - so that we can send monthly reports to your admin on your team's engagement statistics.
  • What can RewardNation do in your Slack workspace?

    • Create public channels for your team to house all recognition messages. Your RewardNation admin will be the one deciding the name of that public channel, and which users to invite into that channel. Common channel names include #kudos, #appreciation, #team_hangout.
    • Post automated messages in your dedicated RewardNation channel, and to your RewardNation users, eg. "You have received +250 points from @Amy: Thank you for helping me to onboard the new interns across three different timezones!"
