ENABLING PRAISE AND BADGE FEATURES IN YOUR ORGANIZATION WITH MICROSOFT TEAMS

Enable or disable Praise in your organization

Praise is enabled by default for all Teams users in your organization. You can turn off or turn on the app at the org level on the Manage apps page in the Microsoft Teams admin center.

  1. In the left navigation of the Microsoft Teams admin center, go to Teams apps > Manage apps.
  2. In the list of apps, search for the Praise app, select it, and then switch the Status toggle to Blocked or Allowed.

Keep in mind that this setting affects both the Praise app and the Praise feature in the Viva Insights app in Teams.

Enable or disable Praise for specific users in your organization

To allow or block specific users in your organization from using Praise, make sure Praise is turned on for your organization on the Manage apps page. Then create a custom app permission policy and assign it to those users. To learn more, see Manage app permission policies in Teams.

Badges

Here’s the default set of badges in Praise. Teams users in your organization can use these badges to recognize their peers for going above and beyond with their work.
