Understanding The Recognition Widget.

This widget has two settings Team or Individual which we will cover in details below.
– Other options are to Give Recognition which will open a dialog box to do so.
– Set Properties, which will allow you to rename the widget or change the number of items to display.
– Ability to remove the widget.

The Team Setting will show all Recognition given in the Team selection if the widget is on the main company pages.
If you add an individual in the team selection, this does not change the behavior, it will still display as the team selection is picked. (shown above)
This is the selection made when creating Recognition for a Team or a Colleague within a Team.

The Individual setting will show all Recognition given to an individual. This is the selection made when creating Recognition for any Colleague.

As mentioned the widget behavior in the Company pages will display all Recognition given throughout the domain, no matter if it’s a private team or individual award.

the Recognitions widget added to a team(department, group, project) page, this will only display Recognition given to that team or a colleague of the team (while still using the Team selection)
Because of this condition, the Team or Individual setting will both populate if a member is singled out from using the Team + member condition seen below.

If only the team is entered with no member picked out then it will display only in the team selector
