We are very excited to announce our partnership with Yammer. Last night we deployed a new version of Recognize that integrates with Yammer. Now both Yammer and Recognize have added value through Recognize’s employee appreciation and Yammer’s workplace social feed. I have envisioned this since I started building Recognize.
Announcing Single Sign On with Yammer
The Recognize staff loves this new feature. We don’t have to enter our email and password anymore to login to Recognize. Just one click and we are in the Recognize Stream page.
Even if you are logged in normally, we let you know where you can take advantage of Yammer
When inviting users or sending a recognition, we have login buttons there for easy access to authenticate with Yammer.
Main events in Recognize are populated in Yammer’s recent activity
An update occurs in the Recent Activity when users are validated through +1, when commenting on a recognition, or when a recognition is sent.
Showing thanks has never been easier with our new autocomplete user list
You can find and recognize anyone in your Yammer account. No need to invite anyone if everyone is already on Yammer. If you want to Recognize someone not on Yammer, simply enter their email alias.
Added contrast to the badge trigger button
The choose a badge button is now darker to be easier to see on all monitors. This will increase Recognize’s usability and improve the experience for all users.
Comment with Yammer on the Recognition Show page
Recognize’s value has jumped with Yammer comments. Users can create a conversation about the best work in your company. Sometimes you just want to say, “You’re welcome.”
When comments are made, they show up in your Yammer feed.
Invite users from Yammer
We show a few users that haven’t signed up for Recognize yet. If you select their name and click “Send,” we will send them an invitation email.
