Configure settings

This section walks through the available configuration options for High Fives. Continue reading for information about each of these options.

High Fives in Check-ins

You can choose to enable High Fives in Check-ins for everyone, limit High Fives in Check-ins to only certain groups, or disable the ability to give High Fives from Check-ins for everyone. Even if High Fives in Check-ins is disabled, people can still give High Fives from the High Five Dashboard and Slack.


High Five Feed (Enable/Disable High Fives)

This setting allows you to enable or disable the High Five Feed, aka the High Five dashboard. If disabled, public high fives will no longer be visible in 15Five and users will not be able to give high fives in real-time (although they can still give high fives from within Check-ins and Slack).



If you want people to be able to include company values in their High Fives as hashtags, enable this option.


Company values are the guiding principles and beliefs that shape the culture, decision-making, and behavior of an organization. They are the foundation on which a company's mission and vision are built, and they represent what the organization stands for and what it aspires to be.

Using company values in high fives helps ensure that company values stay top-of-mind and provide employees with clear examples of behaviors and actions that align with your company's vision and mission. Learn how to add your company values to 15Five.



In this section, determine whether or not you want to display leaderboards on the High Fives Dashboard.


Leaderboards are an effective way to increase engagement and recognize people in a public setting. Do you want trending company values to be tracked in the High Five dashboard? Would you like the most appreciated and top High Fivers to appear in the dashboard? Enable and disable these settings at any time and they will be reflected on the High Five dashboard.


Sharing high fives

If you would like High Fives to be shared via Slack, click the link and follow the instructions to set up the integration. From there, let the High Fives flow freely to and from Slack! We all know how much time is spent in Slack anyway... 




Employees can give High Fives using the 15Five app for Slack. Learn how.
