Limeade offers 8 adaptive cards that address different use cases allowing organizations to target specific resources or nudges to their employees. Below are the key details to understanding how to use each card to elevate your employee’s well-being journey.
Limeade’s Viva Connections offering is made of adaptive cards. Our adaptive cards provide a personalized experience unique to the employee. Limeade looks up an individual in our platform based on their Microsoft Azure AD identity.
The employee must be eligible in an existing Limeade program to get the personalized experience. An employee’s eligibility is determined by an organization's eligibility file that is provided to Limeade.
If an employee is not eligible or the organization is not a Limeade customer, the employee will be presented with a generic marketing experience.
If eligible, cards will verify if a user is registered or not in the Limeade Well-being program. If the user isn’t registered, all cards will ask the user to register and tapping/clicking the card will navigate the user into the program web experience or the Limeade ONE mobile app, prompting the user to follow the registration flow for the program.
When eligible employees are registered, the cards adapt and display a personalized employee experience specific to the card.
Limeade uses the secure context of the employee’s Azure AD identity in the Viva experience to identify and display personalized content. Users are not required to authenticate to view or interact with the adaptive cards directly. Some card experiences may move the employee to Limeade’s platform which may require the user to authenticate depending on the organization’s configuration in the Limeade platform.
Limeade or Microsoft do not store any user data outside the Limeade platform. All personalized experiences are rendered just in time from the Limeade secure platform and are not stored or cached on client devices, nor in Microsoft’s servers.
Cards can be deployed in two sizes: Medium or Large.
Example medium and large card sizes:
Each card has a Limeade product icon and the organization’s Well-being program name.
The remaining card surface can contain images, text, and/or call-to-action buttons.
When cards are clicked/tapped the employee is either navigated to a destination in the Limeade platform or display a card Quick View which is an interactive experience that provides additional information or resources to the employee.
