Awardco Connector

Version 3

 

Intro

Awardco is a cloud-based employee recognition solution designed to boost employee engagement and simplify the reward process with incentivized programs. With Awardco, managers can recognize and reward the deserving employee within a matter of seconds, making the recognition process more empowering, relaxing, and flavorful from service awards to sales incentives. Use Domo's Awardco connector to retrieve data about recognitions, redemptions, transactions, and users in your organization. To learn more about the Awardco API, visit their page (https://api.awardco.com/).

You connect to your Awardco account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Awardco connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Awardco account and create a DataSet, you must have your Awardco API key.

Obtaining the API key:

  1. Log in to your Award Force account.
  2. Go to Settings > General > Integration.
  3. Note your Account ID (It will be required for validating your access tokens).
  4. Next to the API key field, click Generate key.
  5. You will see the API key field populated with your new key. Copy this key and paste it in the Connector's Credentials section (API Key). You can generate a new key at any time. Once a new key is generated, the old key will stop working.
Note: In order to generate the API key, you must have the "Awards manager" account privileges.

Connecting to Your Awardco Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Awardco Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
