When using HiThrive with Slack, HiThrive incorporates a customizable welcome message that is sent to all of your users upon your go-live.

The message serves a dual purpose in that it (1) introduces your team members to the platform and announces HiThrive's availability and (2) it automatically populates the HiThrive application in the left side-bar "Apps" section for your team members.

In the event that you decide not to use the welcome message, HiThrive's functionality will still be available to your team members; however, the HiThrive application will not be visible until each team member manually adds it. 

The welcome message is sent as a direct message to each team member.

You can customize your message here: https://app.hithrive.com/admin/settings

For inspiration, we have included a few welcome message examples below:

Standard Example:

Welcome to HiThrive, our partner in employee recognition!

HiThrive assists us in acknowledging the outstanding work occurring throughout the organization—whether it's exceptional customer service, assistance with a challenging tech support issue, or delivering an exceptional pitch—anything you believe warrants celebration.

By accumulating recognition, you can convert it into rewards using the HiThrive platform. It's our way of expressing gratitude for your awesomeness.
