What is a Flow? 

A Flow is a fully customizable template that can be edited and personalized to fit your workflow’s needs (see our Flow template solutions here). You can add or remove questions, change their answer type (i.e. Dropdown, Scale, and more), who can participate and view the feed, the way you want to receive response notifications, and personalize it to match your company culture. 

For other flow help articles: see our flows hub.

Flow template example: Give Recognition Flow

Celebrate your teammates’ successes with our Recognition Flow in Assembly! 

Who can use this feature?

Any member with a Normal or Giver status can give recognition in Assembly. 

What to expect
  • Only members with an allowance can give points with their recognition 
  • Recognition can be given privately, but this feature must be enabled by your Assembly’s admin 
  • Only companies on a paid plan (not a free plan) can configure and add core values to recognition

Below is a quick video showing you how to answer a flow via our Give Recognition template:

  1. If you have an allowance, add trophies to reward your teammate(s) on top of celebrating their amazing work.
