Set Up Budgets for Awards

Define the awards budget on Empuls and configure the budget allocation rules

What are Budgets in Empuls?

Budgets on Empuls are way to define how points may be used. Points can only be added to Empuls by super admins and can then be shared with others as needed. For any monetary awards, that have associated reward points, budget are necessary to control spends. During the course of awarding reward points are deducted from the pre-defined budget associated with the award. The award giver should have sufficient points in their budget to give the award.

5. Finally, set the number of points to be distributed in each run. This is how you cap the spending on an award.
Frequency of Distribution
If you choose to recover leftover budget points at the end of the cycle, these points are transferred back to Em's budget and will no longer be available for rewarding in the hands of the user. This is recommended if you would like to implement a "use-it-or-lose-it" program. This helps increase budget utilization.
Well, you are making serious progress! Let us now set up automated gifts and greetings for your teammates.
