**Number #1 Free Slack Kudos app** Kudos is designed for Slack users to foster a positive and appreciative team environment. Team members can easily send public or private kudos to their coworkers using a custom emoji, directly contributing to an engaging and supportive work culture. ## Features 👏 **Public recognition:** - Daily limit of 5 Kudos per person. - Give Kudos by mentioning a coworker or adding an emoji of your choice to a message. 🔒 **Private Recognition:** Use the /kudos command to give Kudos privately. 🔎 **Kudos Tracking:** - View your remaining daily Kudos limit. - See your total Kudos received. - Check real-time leaderboards 🔔 **Weekly Scoreboard report:** Highlights the top 3 Kudos recipients and givers from the last week and all time. ## How it works Once you've installed the Kudos app in your Slack workspace, showing appreciation becomes an effortless part of your routine. Say you're impressed by a team member's brilliant work; you can promptly acknowledge their effort by running the Give Kudos workflow within Slack. Just choose the coworker and the number of gems to award, and you'll send a personalized token of appreciation their way. For a public shout-out, all you need to do is mention them in a channel message, add a few words of praise, and include the 💎 (gem) emoji. Or simply react with the 💎 (gem) emoji to any of their messages in channels where the Actioner app is present. You can view your accumulated gems running the My Kudos workflow or check your leading team members running the Scoreboard workflow in Slack.

Data storage policy
At Actioner, ensuring the security of our users' data is paramount. To this end, we employ robust cryptography policies and practices. All data stored within our systems is encrypted at rest using the AES256 encryption standard, providing an additional layer of protection against unauthorized access. Furthermore, we uphold strict encryption standards for data in transit, both within our internal networks and over public channels. All data transmissions utilize TLS1.2 or higher encryption protocols, safeguarding information from interception or tampering. In terms of cryptographic key management, we rely on the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) for secure and controlled handling of cryptographic keys. This includes secure key generation, restricted access, secure storage, regular backups, and periodic rotation of keys. Our integration with AWS services streamlines the encryption process and enhances control over access to keys, thereby bolstering the overall security of our platform.We operate a comprehensive backup program at Actioner. This includes our internal systems, where our backup measures are designed in line with system recovery requirements. With respect to our cloud services, and specifically referring to you and your application data, we also have extensive backup measures in place. Our data backups are retained for 30 days with support for point-in-time recovery and are encrypted using AES-256 encryption.

Data hosting details
Actioner is a cloud-native product whose infrastructure is hosted on industry-leading cloud provider Amazon Web Services (AWS). Actioner cloud services and data are hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Where all our computing, messaging, network, and storage layers are located in the US West, our browser application is distributed via our CDN network all over the world. As a design standard, all Actioner services as well as the upstream computing, messaging, network and storage services are running on multiple availability zones (AZs) so that the traffic and the data are distributed among them. This design allows us to tolerate zone-specific failures with no downtime. This multi-zone high availability is the first line of defense for geographic and environmental risks and means that services running in multi-AZ deployments should be able to withstand AZ failure.
