Have you ever won an award? It could be anything from employee of the month, the biggest pumpkin award, star pupil of the week, or even the much-coveted Nobel prize. It’s not the prestige that matters but how it makes us feel. Awards make us feel good.
According to the World Health Organisation, 15% of the world population, roughly 1 billion people, live with disabilities. This is an incredibly large community of people that are easily excluded if an application does not consider them in their design.
Award Force has been designed for all types of users, and that includes people with disabilities.
This cartoon by @officeguycartoons.com recently floated around the “office” at Award Force (Slack 😊). Since we are a company that develops software to help organisations recognise excellence in their field, the cartoon was both apt and thought-provoking.
Spam traps are a tool used by ISP’s to identify and track spammers. Essentially, they are an unmanned email address that alerts an ISP anytime an email lands in its inbox. If by some chance you send an email to this address, you get flagged as a spammer and you will find it extremely difficult to get any of your email delivered.
On the surface, attachments in Award Force are exactly what you think they are, a means for your entrants + grant-seekers to include additional information or media with their submission.
But scratch a little deeper and you will find attachments in Award Force are not just a paperclip on the side of an input box, they are a fully fledged power tool which gives you, your team and your program participants an exceptional experience, leaving you wondering “why doesn’t everyone handle attachments like that?”.
