Kudoboard is an online appreciation tool that replaces the greeting card that's passed around and signed. You start a Kudoboard for someone on a special occasion, add text/photos/videos to their board, schedule it for delivery, and then invite others to contribute. See a video demo of the Kudoboard process here!
Kudoboards are used to recognize people on annual events like birthdays and workplace anniversaries, special occasions like retirements and promotions, holidays like mother’s day and boss's day, or just to tell someone they are great.
There are two privacy options. You can create a Secret board, which can be accessed by users whom you provide the unique Kudoboard link. Or you can create a Private board, which requires users to have the unique link along with a valid login credential to access.
There are two options to send out invitations to other contributors. You can copy/paste the unique board link into your own message to contributors, or you can use our system to email an invitation to contributors.
Invite as many people as you’d like - each person can add as many kudos, photos, and videos as they want.
There are a couple steps you can take to ensure your contributors engage:
a) Show, don't tell. Before you invite others to contribute, write a nice kudo and post photos and videos.
b) Remind contributors about the board the day before it's supposed to be delivered.
Contributors and recipients can access a Kudoboard without registration (depending on the settings you select for your board). For security, however, all users on Kudoboard for Business are required to register before adding to a Kudoboard.
The Kudoboard creator has ultimate privileges to edit, move around, and delete content from the board. Contributors can edit their own content. Recipients can move content around or delete kudos after they receive a board. View a demo here to see how editing works.
Yes. You can adjust the delivery date of your Kudoboard at any time. You can also set whether we deliver the board automatically on your behalf, or you send it yourself to the recipient.
Yes. People can contribute to the Kudoboard after the delivery date (unless you choose to lock the board). When this happens, the creator and recipient receive a notification that a new entry to the Kudoboard has been made so they don't miss it.
Kudoboards remain accessible indefinitely (though we reserve the right to archive content from business customers whose subscriptions have lapsed more than 90 days)
Yes. If you'd like to print your Kudoboard as a poster in addition to the digital version -- there are two options. You can download a high resolution version of the board that you can print as a poster at a print shop, or we can print and ship a copy in the continental United States. We offer three different widths (3- column, 6- column, 12- column) to accommodate boards of varying sizes.
Kudoboards are free for you to download and print as a poster. We can also print and ship the poster anywhere in the contiguous US; pricing varies depending on the size of the board.
Kudoboards are private by default. However, several Kudoboard recipients have generously given us permission to showcase their Kudoboards on our blog here.
Yes. If you have a Milestone board (or any board made on a subscription), you can go into your board's settings and set new kudos to be placed at the top of the board. This is particularly useful for extra-large boards.
Yes - we have a "Reminders" feature. Add events there, and we'll email you 1 week prior to the dates you provide with a nudge to set up Kudoboards for your recipients!
Administrative settings can be changed from the Admin Panel. You must be an organizational admin for this to be accessible (other admins in your organization can provide permission upon request).
