10X: Awards/Shout-Outs

Use the Shout-Outs page to create awards and give them to colleagues that complete notable tasks or reach certain achievements. Awards, in the form of badges, are displayed prominently on a user's profile page. Awards also carry points, which encourage users to collect them, as the point totals are displayed on a leaderboard to track progress among peers. In some organizations, points can be used as currency to purchase products or earn prizes/rewards.

Examples of awards include:

  • Top bug killer
  • 100% attendance 
  • Work anniversaries
  • Employee of the year


The left side of the page has 3 panes:

  • Shout-outs: lists the name of awards; filter the list of awards in the workspace by selecting a specific award in the Shout-out pane. You can also edit the name, description, point value, and badge for an award by clicking the pencil icon to the right of the award name.

  • People: lists the names of award recipients; see all of the awards earned by a specific recipient by selecting a name in the People pane.
  • Year: lists the years awards were given; see all of the awards given in a specific year by selecting a year in the Year pane.

The top of the workspace contains three buttons:

  • Feed: click to display the main feed of earned awards in the workspace; this is the default view.
  • My Awards: click to display a list of awards you have earned.
  • Leaderboard: click to display a list of colleagues, ordered by rank of highest total point value to lowest point value earned.
