How to manage Perk Token budgets

If your recognition program has the Perks (ex. day off, free lunch, work party, etc...) feature enabled, you will need to load budgets monthly, quarterly, or annually, depending on how you've set it up.

Note: Upcoming Budgets must be in place before the next budget period begins, otherwise Recognitions will be suspended until they are loaded.  The system will send all Admins multiple email reminders and Warning Notifications on the Administrator Dashboard.
