Ways to give a High Five in 15Five:

#2 Give a High Five in Real Time. Click on the tab High Fives to give a High Five in real time!
- High Fives given from the dashboard will be Public.
- Private High Fives are not available to be given from the dashboard and can only be given directly on a user's reports.
- Once a High Five is given, an email is sent notifying the recipient and the High Five is pushed down into the feed on the Dashboard. The most recent High Fives are visible at the top of the feed.
- If you give a High Five from the dashboard it will appear in your current 15Five in a read-only format. When your 15Five is submitted, only High Fives you give within your 15Five will notify recipients (as they were already notified in real-time from the Dashboard).
