Roles on Applauz

October 25, 2018

On Applauz there are three distinct “roles” that a user can assume: the “Owner” of your company recognition program, the designated program “Rewards Managers” who manage your program to support your daily recognition efforts, and “Employees”, who are the participants of your program. Here’s everything you need to know about what your specific role entails, and what advantages are associated with it.

Applauz has defined three (3) different roles for three (3) different types of participants:

  1. The Applauz Owner is the program administrator of their company recognition program.
  2. A Rewards Manager is an employee who has been selected by the program Owner to assist in the company’s recognition efforts.
  3. An Employee is any program participant added to the program by the program Owner, or a Rewards Manager.

 

NOTE: You don’t have to be the Owner of your company to be the Owner of your Applauz program. Likewise, anyone can be designated a “Rewards Manager” by the Owner, regardless of their official company title.

Features Common To All Roles

The Program Owner

The person who initially registered their Company’s Applauz account is automatically designated by the system as the program “Owner”. The Owner is the official administrator of their company’s recognition program. This means that Owners can decide how they want to manage their recognition efforts on Applauz and retain full control of their company recognition program’s settings, options, permissions, and participants.

Additionally, Program Owners have access to additional Applauz engagement and marketplace reports and more. Owners can access the full administration area on Applauz by navigating to their program’s account settings.
