ToolBox -

Hively gives you the choice of two smiley styles (hexagonal and round) right out of the box. If you want something more customized, you can upload your own!

The style you choose will be reflected on your rating page, thanks page, the thanks email sent to raters and everywhere else smileys show up throughout Hively. The smiley style will also be reflected in the snippets sent to your team members, but if you change the style, you’ll need to resend team members their snippets to make sure they have the latest.

Changing Smiley Sets

To switch to a different style of smileys:

  • Log into Hively as an Account Administrator.
  • Select Smiley Sets from the main menu.
  • In the ‘Your smiley sets’ list, click the ‘Set as default’ link next to the smiley set you want to switch to.

Uploading a custom smiley set

To upload and use your own Smiley Set:

  • Log into Hively as an Account Administrator.
  • Select Smiley Sets from the main menu.
  • Under ‘Add Smiley Set’ enter a name for your set (this doesn’t display publicly) and upload your smileys.
  • Click ‘Submit’.

The images you upload should be PNGs of equal height and width and at least 150 pixels in each dimension.

Best of luck, we love to see what our customers come up with, so send us a mail at info@teamhively.com to show of your new smileys!
