How To Manage Program Settings on Applauz

published: September 17, 2020

The Applauz Program's settings can be managed and modified to suit your business's needs.

In this article, we will cover how you can access the menu and modify the program settings.

We will also provide you with tips, so you can control your settings to maximize the usage and value of your Applauz Recognition Program.

Everything you need to know about Program Settings

To access the program settings menu navigate to Program>Settings. 

Note: Only the Program Administrator and those designated by the Role of Manager have access to program settings menu.

In the settings menu you will see all the basic information associated to your account and program.

Modifying Company Information

At the very top of the page, you will see the 'Company Information' section. 

Here you can add/modify the company's name, website, and address information.

This is where you can add a company logo as well.

The company logo will appear on your Newsfeed. We highly recommend you add a company logo to create a more personalized experience for your employees.

Program Options

Another important section on the settings page is 'Program Options' section.

Here you can turn on/off key features on the Applauz platform. By default, most are turned off. 

Enable automatic event announcements 

To enhance your Employee Recognition Program, we recommend turning the first three features on.

The announcement of employee birthdays and anniversaries on the Newsfeed is highly recommended! These reminders help managers never forget an important employee event.

Turning on additional features

That said, additional features are turned off by default as they require the purchase of Applauz Points to work.

Rewarding employees with Applauz Points will help you take recognition to the next level. Buying Applauz Points is simple--you can do it directly on the settings page by clicking "Buy Points." 

Assuming you decide to boost your recognition program with Applauz Points. In that case, you can turn on the following features in your Program Options once Points are purchased:

Turning on Service Awards

Lastly, Service Awards helps companies honour their employee's milestone anniversaries.

Enabling "Service Awards" in Program Options will simply make the "Service Awards" menu appear in the main navigation bar. Nothing more.

From there, Administrators may click on the "Service Awards" menu in the main navigation bar. Inside the menu, they can configure the program by selecting milestones of their choice (example: 3-years, 5-years, and 10-years anniversaries) and purchasing Gift-Vouchers.

Transfer of program ownership

At the very bottom of the settings page, the Administrator can transfer "ownership" of the program. This means the current Administrator may designate another individual to be the new Program Administrator. Owner and Administrator are used synonymously here.

Remember: There is only one Program Administrator on Applauz.
