tabs for given and received
On user profiles, kudos given are as prominent as those received.
When giving a kudos, a fullscreen experience opens with a soft gradient background. This changes to adapt to the illustrated GIF selected to personalise the kudos.
playful empty state
The empty state teases the illustrations, and takes advantage of when there’s space along the row of kudos.
Managers receive a notification when direct reports receive a kudos, and see who from and why.
In user interviews, customers talked about wanting to make sure people’s managers had visibility of their successes, especially as people may not want to advocate for themselves.
I designed cards that could be used on Atlas home and user and team profiles as a carousel, and in a feel good feed of messages from across your company.
Using GIFs meant that kudos felt cohesive whether viewed in app or in an email notification - and sets us up to support Slack and MS Teams in the future.
We're hearing stories from customers about how kudos is helping their ways of working.
What I learned
While I continue to focus on understanding user needs, I learned about the value of developing a point of view as a product team about what we want to create.
I found informal chats and innovation week time with the development team have inspired the direction for kudos that benefits our customers.
