Bulk Upload Recognition Approvals Follow
In the implementation process or when uploading new users into the platform, you may find yourself with the need to quickly authorize one or more people to approve nominations that come through the system. This bulk upload feature allows program administrators to do that. By uploading a .csv file you are now able to cut out the tedious task of entering the names of authorized approvers one-by-one for each individual account.
Note: For questions about .csv formatting or any other question relating to this feature, please contact your Client Success Representative.

Step by Step Visual:
Getting to the Approval page
After signing into your company's Awardco website, select Admin to bring up the correct tab options. Select the Settings tab under your company's logo in the upper left portion of the screen. On the left-hand side, select Approval.
Navigating the Approval Page
On this page, you can turn approvals on and off as well as set a threshold for approvals. You can also manually add approvers to a user. Manually adding approvers is easy to do when only a few users are involved. However, when you have to update multiple users it's important to know how to do a bulk upload.
