Frequently Asked Questions
Kudoboard is an online appreciation tool that replaces the greeting card that's passed around and signed. You start a Kudoboard for someone on a special occasion, add text/photos/videos to their board, schedule it for delivery, and then invite others to contribute. See a video demo of the Kudoboard process here!
Kudoboards are used to recognize people on annual events like birthdays and workplace anniversaries, special occasions like retirements and promotions, holidays like mother’s day and boss's day, or just to tell someone they are great.
Kudoboards can only be accessed by users whom you provide the unique Kudoboard link. Your Kudoboard is not listed publicly anywhere on our site. We also have additional access settings (for instance, requiring a verified company email) available on Kudoboard for Business.
There are three options to send out invitations to other contributors. You can copy/paste the unique board link into your own message to contributors, invite through facebook, or use our system to email an invitation to contributors.
On a free Mini Kudoboard, the limit is 10 board posts (either from 10 separate contributors, or from fewer contributors who each make multiple posts). On all other types of Kudoboards, there is no limit! Invite as many people as you’d like - each person can add as many kudos, photos, and videos as they want.
There are a couple steps you can take to ensure your contributors engage:
a) Show, don't tell. Before you invite others to contribute, write a nice kudo and post photos and videos.
b) Remind contributors about the board the day before it's supposed to be delivered.
No - contributors are not required to register with Kudoboard to add to a board.
The Kudoboard creator has ultimate privileges to edit, move around, and delete content from the board. Contributors can edit their own content. Recipients can move content around or delete kudos after they receive a board. View a demo here to see how editng works.
Yes. You can adjust the delivery date of your Kudoboard at any time. You can also set whether we deliver the board automatically on your behalf, or you send it yourself to the recipient.
Yes. People can contribute to the Kudoboard after the delivery date. When this happens, the creator and recipient receive a notification that a new entry to the Kudoboard has been made so they don't miss it.
As long as Kudoboard exists, your board will be accessible! Unless you or the recipient delete it, of course.
Yes. If you'd like to print your Kudoboard in addition to the digital version -- there are two options. You can download a high resolution version of the board that you can print as a poster (at a print shop), or we can print and ship a copy to you if you live in the continental United States.
You are billed once annually for the Unlimited Boards plan. You can cancel at any time from the "My Account" page - at which point no more charges will be made to your card. You will continue to have access to all the features of the Unlimited Boards plan until the end of your billing period.

I received a ton of compliments for setting up a colleague’s retirement card with Kudoboard. With no limits on the number of contributions, everyone could add their own personal touch. It was terrific, and I will be using it again and again to bring our team together in the future.

We needed a way to have a card signed by a lot of different people who would never be in the same time and place. Kudoboard was the perfect solution - people from all over the country added messages and pictures over the course of a few weeks. We had the final result printed up, and we loved the way the card was printed on a scroll - it made for a very impressive and much appreciated end result.

I hadn’t heard of Kudoboard when I was invited to contribute to a 50th birthday board for my brother, Kevin. It was super intuitive and easy to use. I added several photos and videos using my phone, and I later added to the board from my computer. Kevin absolutely loved it, and I would definitely recommend Kudoboard to others!

All of my friends and family added such amazing messages and photos (+ GIFs of course!) to cheer me up after my surgery. I was feeling down, and this was such a pick-me-up that I cried tears of happiness as I was reading the board.
