How does it work?

STEP 1: Install

To start the rewarding process in Microsoft Teams, install the Vantage Circle application inside a channel.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Click on the “Apps” button in the left menu. It will give you access to the App Store. Search for “Vantage Circle” and click on the app. The Vantage Circle page will open.

2. Click on the dropdown beside the Open button and select the “Add to a team” option.

3. Type the team or channel name where you want to add it and click on the dropdown beside the “Set up” button.

4. From the dropdown menu, select the “set up a tab” option.

5. If you choose to set up Vantage Circle as a tab, a new page will appear. Click on the Sign-in option.

6. Login with your credentials.

7. The Vantage Circle application will be successfully added to the header of the selected channel as a separate tab. 

Here, you can view the Social Feed that displays recognition posts. You can like & comment on the posts.

STEP 2: Recognize Employees

Now recognize your colleagues directly from Microsoft Teams using Vantage Circle.

Login to your Microsoft Teams account and go to the Team with the Vantage Circle app. Feed notifications will be posted automatically inside the channel each time you recognize your colleagues.

Steps to start recognizing employees:

1. To start appreciating, click on the “Posts” tab in the header menu of the channel. You’ll see a “New conversation” button below.

2. Click on the “New conversation” button. A text area with a taskbar appears.

3. Select the Vantage Circle icon from the below taskbar. A pop-up will appear with the Appreciate Now button. If you’ve been assigned the role of a nominator, you’ll also see a Nominate button.

4. After selecting the type of recognition and award badges, click on Next.

Select the employees you want to recognize and give a citation message. Once you enter the necessary details, click on Post.

Note: If you select “Add as a bot” in Step 4, you will not be able to access the Social Feed, but the Appreciate/Nominate option will be open to you via the Posts tab.
