This article is primarily for the Super Admin but may also be useful for managers and employees.
The Super Admin can enable 'Private' recognitions in Organization > Settings under 'Employee-to-Employee Recognition'.
When 'Allow employees to send private recognitions' is turned off, Admins can privately recognize anyone in the organization and team leads can privately recognize their team members.
When turned on, all employees will see the option 'Send as a private recognitions' when they send a recognition.
The default is that all recognitions are 'Public' and viewable by all active employees in their Social Feed.
However if 'Private' is selected, then the recognition is marked as such and can only be seen by the recipient and the sender.
Admins can always see all recognitions (public and private) under an employee's Activity History (Manage > Employees, then 'Profile') as well as in the Dashboard reports.
