How do I invite contributors to my Kudoboard?

There are a few ways to invite contributors to post on your Kudoboard: sending the contributors a direct link or QR code to the Kudoboard, sharing the board via social media, sending the board via email by way of kudoboard.com, and sending the board via Slack or Teams by way of kudoboard.com (only on business boards). Inviting contributors is done in the board's editor view, so you'll want to see an eye icon to the upper right of the title that says View as Recipient. If you see a pencil icon that says View as Editor, please click that button to be able to get to editor view.

2. To the upper right of the title click the Invite Contributors button that looks like a person with a plus sign.

4. Craft an email, text, or any other kind of message asking your contributors to post on the board that you've linked to.

  • Alternatively, select the QR code option to download your Kudoboard's unique QR code. This code can be sent to contributors via the messaging service of your choice (by default the QR code is a PNG file), however, we find that the best use for the QR code is on printed invitations or in-person events where you'd like individuals to contribute to the board during the event.
