You can automatically celebrate birthdays by creating a birthday award under Manage > Milestones. When a user celebrates a birthday, the award appears on the social feed, which allows other users to add on to the milestone if they want to.

How do I add my people's birthday dates?

There are 3 ways to add their birthday dates:

  • If you're using an HRIS integration for your user management, the system will automatically pull the information over for you.

  • You can add everyone's birthday information by including it in the bulk upload template.

  • You can manually add a user's birthday information by finding their name on the Manage > People page and clicking the arrow on the right. Click 'Edit' and scroll in their profile to find the Birthday field and type in their birthday information.

What time do the automated birthday awards get sent out?

The automated birthday awards will be sent out around 7 am UTC.

What if a person doesn't want their birthday to be celebrated?

If a person does not want to be awarded on their birthday, you can simply remove the birth date from their profile.
