Custom Praise images please
We would like to be able to upload our own images so that we can praise staff using our praise/values identity.
This would assist us to move from other communications tools which currently have this functionality.
We are excited to announce that Custom Praise Images are now available for EDU organizations to enable a new set of Praise badges focused on “social and emotional learning.”
This feature is accessible to tenant admins by accessing Praise app settings in the Teams Admin Center. To learn more, please visit https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/manage-praise-app

what a great idea!
Would be a fabulous addition in Class Teams to produce praise categories directed to teaching and learning

Adding to the chatter here....
I'm in HR and we just discovered the Praise feature when we were launching our new company-wide recognition channel in Teams. While it's a great feature, employees don't seem very interested BUT I think our managers and Leadership team would be much more motivated to encourage its use if it were tied back to our corporate values. Would love to see this be more customize-able in the near future!
Please allow customization of praise icons. We want to use our corporate values to appreciate people - therefore provided by the company and not by individual users. We are a global business account with several 100k users. The last reply from Microsoft is around one year ago, is this still prioritized?
We have company values with their own images, it would be great to use these

I say baloney. It's a good feature request but the risk of bad PR due to inappropriate badge content from general idiots is just way too high and Microsoft would be wise to not risk that kind of nonsense.
The better option would be to only allow system administrators to add customized badges for the organization and enable this feature only for business accounts of a minimum tier.
Custome praise icons would be a wonderful company-specific way of praising our users in Teams
Customizing is needed. We need child friendly images for kids and young teens.

Our Company would really like to do something like this. We have developed a culture around our values, and being able to call them out in Praise, with custom image and custom praise name, would be an addition that would make teams feel more integrated with our company.
Having the option to deploy the custom praises tenant wide would be our preference.
Nothing in the backlog :(

Several organizations are asking for this feature to be available on Praise.

Ok, so this say "prioritizing this highly for future ....." That was from Jun of 2019 and it is now May of 2020. Can you provide an update?
Andy Foley commented
We could really use this right now!
Regan Gill commented
Please hurry on this feature! Would be so helpful in these times.
Please can we get this done soon? It'd be awesome and would help our workplace a ton. Thank you for putting this to the top of the list!
Would love this in EDU too!

Custom Praise images and text would be great to integrate our company values and enable further integration of Teams in how we work together.

It would be great to have user defined icons and although it has been prioraitized last year we still can not use customized praise icons or types
Michael Riesenkoenig commented
I think this makes abolutely sense - let's go for it!
Steve Bygrave commented
We (and most Companies do I would think) have our own values and icons it would be amazing if we could use Teams to send each other in-house branded, value related icons. So could I vote for user defined Praise icons/actions please?
Stay safe :)
