The Postcard sender also receives a confirmation screen pop-up once they have sent the Postcard and the receiver will see a notification on Web, Mobile, MS Teams or email depending on your notification preference. Also, the Manager of the Postcard receiver will receive a notification as well to spur overall team engagement.
The Postcards section of the Home Page will feature the four most recent Postcards that have been sent across the Organization. To View all of the Organization Postcards (Including your send and received) by selecting View More.
You can also send a Postcard straight from the Home Page. Select "Send Postcard" > Choose a colleague to send the Postcard to > Then choose an available Postcard templates > Add in your message and send!
*Note - You may not see all 6 Postcard Templates because as you select a Postcard it will determine the relevancy of each template. For example, If it's a Milestone (Birthday or Anniversary) it will not provide the Endorse or Welcome Postcard Template.
Within the Milestones section Birthdays (excludes birth year) and Work Anniversaries are displayed to spotlight those in the company who would be great teammates to congratulate or recognize!
In teammates profiles, you can navigate to the Postcards tab to contribute to your profile. You can select from 6 templates (Anniversary, Endorse, Thank you, and Birthday) and send them a postcard which will be visible to other colleagues and serves as a place to recognize their hard work or special event for that teammate.
When sending a postcard, the audience is already locked in, all that's needed is to is craft a message and send! Sharing a postcard with a colleague boosts team camaraderie, but also increases the shelf life of the comment by living on a profile vs in chat or email.
