In our quest to build the best possible knowledge sharing tool, we ask our customers what they need to drive adoption and foster engagement with Stack Overflow for Teams. We kept hearing a request for more ways to reward team members for doing things apart from the standard points and badge system; and this is how Custom Awards was born.
Now on the Business and Enterprise plans of Stack Overflow for Teams, Admins can create awards based on projects, objectives, or goals that are specific to their organization. For example, we use awards on our own instance of Stack Overflow for Teams for things like successful technical migrations or product releases.
We know our customers will find inventive ways to use these awards to foster community growth and enrich their knowledge sharing practice.
Check out this one-pager that goes over the high-level benefits of Custom Awards and how you can start leveraging within your community today.
