Now that you have loaded the default metrics and badges you are ready to start awarding the badges to users. By default, Kudos Badges will start awarding badges at midnight each day. However, if you would like to start awarding badges immediately rather than waiting until the next scheduled run, you can click the Award Badges Now button.
Award Badges Now¶
Login to Connections and navigate to the Badges Configurator Community
Select the Settings tab in the BadgesConfigurator widget
Click the Award Badges Now button.
Note: If you are installing Kudos Badges to a Connections environment for testing purposes, it is recommended that the following settings are disabled:
- Enable Email Notifications for Badges/Awards
- Enable Email Notifications for Thanks
