Motivosity and Slack

Motivosity offers an integration with Slack. The reason for this integration is simple: Slack users do much of their communicating in the tool and recognizing someone from within the Slack application is a natural flow.

To enable slack for your team, go to Integrations under your Setup Page.

You should see a number of different things you can integrate with - go ahead and click on Slack.

You will now see an 'Add to Slack' button that will hand you off to Slack to finish the setup.

Next, you'll want to authorize usage and select a chat group where Motivosity appreciations will appear. (Example: #general)

Once authorization is complete, mv-slack will be available to your team. What this means is that team members can give recognition by typing '/mv' and then the recognition.

The format is as follows:

/mv Person's Name. Note of appreciation. $money #company value

The $money and #company value are optional. If you need help, type /mv help and you'll see the following image:

You can also see your current giving balance by typing this:

/mv balance

The WDYA Widget (with SSO support)

The WDYA Widget (or 'Who do you Appreciate' widget) is a small HTML snippet you can paste onto any webpage and give appreciations.

To use this widget, just paste the following into your web page:

<div id="mv-wdya"> <script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.motivosity.com/resources/assets/js/plugins/mv-wdya-widget.js" defer></script> </div>

What will appear in your page is something like this:

This is the widget at rest. When you click on the field, the widget will expand and allow users to create an appreciation right from the widget itself.

This widget also supports sso. If you have your service already set up, add a parameter called 'sso-url' to the script tag.

Put your SSO provider url in as a the value (like sso-url="https://sso-location-url"). You may need to contact support for additional help with this.
