There have been a lot of people having fun with the Props! app from Jive. The app is a quick and easy way for co-workers to recognize a colleague for a job well done, to say "Thank You", or to acknowledge that someone put in extra effort and went above and beyond their normal responsibilities. (You can try it out now by simply hitting ! and looking for Props.)
Almost as soon as Props became available in the Jive Apps Market, we started getting requests for new features, suggestions for improvements, and ideas for new trophies. One of the more interesting ideas that came up was to integrate the props backend with the gamification feature. This is a wicked cool idea! As much as we really would like to do everything, we simply can't. Recognizing this, we've created the [Archived] Jive Open INnovation (JOIN) group in the community to go along with the Jive Github Repositories.
Today, I'm excited to announce we have open sourced the Props app!!
The github repository contains both the Jive app AND the backend server code! Our hope is that this will blossom into an open source project that is driven by our community and that you will work together on adding new capabilities and features. We've started collecting ideas in the Community Requirements for Props App document and I encourage you to jump in and participate.
Oh. And one last thing.....
