How do I give group recognition?

You can give recognition to multiple people at once by creating a group of Preciate connections and giving recognition to the group.

To give group recognition with Preciate, you will first want to create a group of connections. Make sure you are connected to all the people who you want to include in the group.

Then, you can go ahead and give recognition to the group, which will send the message to all of the connections in the group. Group recognitions will show up as a single recognition in the Activity Feed and on the company Portrait. At the same time, it will appear on each of the individual Portraits of the recipients. Each recipient will have the chance to say thanks to the recognition as well. 

In this article, we will go over the process of creating a group and giving group recognition on our web and mobile applications. 

Creating a group of connections
