Everybody likes to be recognized when they do good work. Our data has shown that people who receive Cheers are more central to the organization as a whole and show less voluntary turnover. It is also shown that people who receive Cheers are typically higher performing. So basically, Cheers = longevity with the company and high performance.
It is always nice to receive Limeade Listening Cheers (and think about what it means for your career), but you have to get the ball rolling by sending them. Not to mention how good it feels to recognize deserving people for their hard work.

Ways to send Cheers
Via the web app
Log in to Limeade Listening whenever you would like to send Cheers. Send one from the main Engage page with the Send Cheers for Peers section. (If your organization has Limeade Listening giftcards enabled, and you would like to send a Limeade Listening giftcard, you have to send it on this page.)
Via the mobile app
Download the Limeade Listening mobile app for iOS or Android and send Cheers on the go.
Via the Chrome plug-in
After you have installed the Limeade Listening Chrome plug-in, click on the Limeade Listening logo button to send Cheers right from your browser.
If one of your administrators has set up the Limeade Listening app for Slack, you can send Cheers at any time from the convenience of Slack.
If you already have the tinypulse-bot in your App list, just click on it. If it is not visible in your Apps list, but know that your organization has integrated Limeade Listening for Slack, click on the + symbol next to Apps and search "Limeade Listening". Once the Limeade Listening app has popped up, click on the View button (please make sure it is the "Limeade Listening" application with the description that starts with "Respond to pulse surveys").
In the Limeade Listening-bot, you will see your active surveys and the options to send a Cheers and give a Suggestion.
To send a Cheers, click on the Send a Cheers button.
You will then be able to send a Cheers to anyone else at your organization whose email address in Slack matched their email in Limeade Listening. If your organization has Value Tags set up, select one or more Value Tag to add to the Cheers. You can also choose to hide your Cheers from the Cheers Feed or make it anonymous after in the Sharing options section.
Additionally, you can post your comments on Cheers if your organization's Cheers Feed is integrated with Slack by creating a thread. Your comments will be recorded in Limeade Listening so the conversation is available to everyone, everywhere. This works vice versa as well. Post a comment in Limeade Listening and it will also be posted to the thread in Slack.
...and it's also posted here.
If you or one of your administrators have set up the Limeade Listening app in your account, you can send Cheers in Teams. All you need to do is go to the Limeade Listening bot in your Chat message history and type in "send cheers".
After you have sent the message to the bot, it will respond with a message that will allow you to send a Cheers to any email address that you type into the To spot. If your organization has Value Tags set up, select one or more Value Tag to add to the Cheers.
You can also choose to hide your Cheers from the Cheers Feed or make it anonymous after clicking on the Sharing options dropdown.
Do you need a refresher of the commands you can enter in the Limeade Listening bot in Teams? Type in "help".
Via the Limeade Listening Gmail add-on
If you have not installed the Limeade Listening for Gmail add-on, follow the steps here to get it set up in a couple of clicks. Open any email from your Gmail inbox and click on the add-on from your sidebar. From there, you can send Cheers right from your inbox.
The two requirements for Cheers are to specify a recipient and write a message. However, there are some fun extras to make them unique.
Add a photo
Adding a photo to Cheers makes them more fun. Plain and simple. Take a moment to attach a nice photo for some personalization by clicking the Photo button. Cheers with photos also make your company Cheers feed look awesome.
Include a GIPHY
Giphys make Cheers even more fun! Just click on the GIF button before you send a Cheer, then search through the GIPHY library for the perfect GIF for the recipient.
Give a Limeade Listening giftcard
If your organization has enabled Limeade Listening giftcard and given you access, you will see a Limeade Listening giftcard button. This is only available for Cheers sent from the Limeade Listening browser version and in the Cheers send box in the Employee Portal.
Send anonymous Cheers
Sometimes you want to spread positivity without drawing attention to yourself. Generally, we think it is good for the recipient to know who the sender is but we completely understand if you want to remain discrete. If you check the Make Anonymous box, neither the sender nor your administrators will know who sent the Cheers. Your Cheers will still appear on the public Cheers feed and on any reports created by your administrator, but the sender name will be "Anonymous". Note that if you choose to send an anonymous Cheers, you cannot attach a GIPHY or image. This restriction is in place to prevent potentially abusive or harmful images being sent under the veil of anonymity. Also, be aware that abusive Cheers can be reported to us at Limeade Listening to have them removed and investigated if they are threatening or harmful. If you are concerned about anonymity, take a look at our commitment.
Limeade Listening offers many different methods for viewing Cheers.
Click the link in the Cheers email: You will be notified by email whenever you get Cheers. Just click the link to view it in Limeade Listening.
View your Cheers sent and received history in the My Activity tab: Once you have set your password, you can log in to app.tinypulse.com and scroll in your Engage page until you see the My Activity tab. This tab shows your entire Limeade Listening history including Cheers sent and received, survey Responses, and Suggestions.
Slack: Your administrators can set up a real-time Cheers feed as a new channel in your company's Slack application. Check out this article to learn more about Slack integration or contact your company's Limeade Listening administrator to see if this is right for you.
Engage Cheers feed: Engage is the best way for companies to improve their transparency and give employees more visibility into Limeade Listening. It also allows employees to see a real-time Cheers feed in their Limeade Listening view so they can take a scroll through to see the positivity floating around whenever they would like. Consider turning on the Engage Cheers feed if you are an administrator and are interested in becoming even more open and transparent by celebrating Cheers.
Scrolling Cheers feed: Administrators can access the scrolling Cheers feed which is perfect to put up on a public TV in your office. Employees can take a few minutes to look at it for a constant reminder of the good work that is being done, with a bit of extra recognition at the same time.
If your administrators have enabled the live Cheers feed in Engage, you will be able to like your favorite Cheers! Just scroll in your Dashboard page until you can see the Cheers tab. Read through the Cheers that have been sent at your organization and click the thumbs up icon if there is one that you particularly like. If you have clicked the thumbs up icon by mistake, just click it again to remove your like.
If you are an administrator and want to enable Cheers "liking," enter your Admin view and go to Settings -> Platform -> Employee Portal and make sure the Cheers feed item is selected. The next time employees log in to Limeade Listening, they will be able to see the Cheers tab in their Engage page.
If you have received a Cheers and want to thank the sender for their kind words, you can send them a 'thank you' email right from Limeade Listening! If you're viewing Cheers in Limeade Listening, just click Say 'Thanks'. Then, type your message and click Send Your Thanks and the recipient will get your message via email.
This is just another way that Limeade Listening helps employees spread positivity so do not forget to say thanks for the recognition!
Check out your Cheers network
Your personal Cheers network is a visual representation of who you most frequently send Cheers to and receive them from. Think about this as your "social" network at work. You can use this chart as a way to quickly see who may need your recognition and who to thank for their appreciation. You can see the Cheers network once you have an employee account. Just set your password then go to your Engage page to check it out.
