Send a Birthday Card to your employee

Primary administrators can create an automated birthday card, invite all or a select group of coworkers to sign, and send the card to employees with upcoming birthdays.

Send a birthday card or view upcoming birthdays

  1. Navigate to the Dashboard tab.
  2. Scroll to the 'Celebrations' headline on the right hand side.
    • View upcoming birthdays.
    • Note: Celebrations headline will only appear if there's an event within the next 30 days. 
  3. Click Send a Card.
    • Only the primary administrator of an account can initiate the send.
  4. Confirm the recipient.
  5. Edit the Header text.
  6. Choose the delivery date.
    • This will default to the employee’s actual birthday.
  7. Choose which employees will be invited to sign the card.
    • Important: This will default to all employees. Click edit to customize the list. Employees will not be able to edit their notes after they submit them.
    • Individuals must be W-2 employees with email addresses listed in their Gusto account.
    • If you'd like to sign the card, make sure to include yourself on the list. 
    • Your team will receive the card a week before it's delivery date.
