Creating Badges (with Proper Dimensions)

Badges are the central, visual component of the Recognize platform. Whether they're tagged to Recognitions or Nominations, badges are an effective way to communicate your company values to your employees.

Recognize comes with a collection of pre-loaded badges that can be leveraged for your company's recognitions/nominations. But you also have the option to create your own if desired. 

Using Pre-Loaded Badge Templates:

Badge Image Dimensions:

  • We recommend the badges are 200px by 200px and are transparent pngs
  • Badges must be a circle or square, they shouldn't be different widths vs. height.
  • We also recommend the badges are round, as Recognize rounds them on the stream page. Other places, such as emails and the recognition detail page will show it as you have uploaded it.

Other Restrictions

  • A title and image are the minimum requirements to create a badge.
  • No two badges can have the same title.
  • Once a badge is created and it has been used by others, it can not be deleted or that would delete the associated recognitions.
