How It Works

HeyTaco! makes your team happier and more productive by spreading appreciation. Simply add a taco emoji (:taco:) after someone's username when you want to show appreciation.

Everyone gets 5 tacos to give out each day, and we'll keep track of all the taco giving on a leaderboard for your team.


Examples:

Really appreciate your positivity, it's spreading @alice

@edmund thank you for picking up lunch!



Multi-person Examples:

Really appreciate your positivity, it's spreading @alice @arthur Both will receive 1 taco

@edmund @miriam thank you for picking up lunch! Both will receive 2 tacos
