Like Conversations or Comments

You can like or unlike your own conversation posts, as well as those made by other users. Liking is useful for highlighting a comment that stood out during the year.

To like a post, click the associated like icon ().

After you like the post, the icon turns dark blue and filled in. You can click the icon again to unlike the post (if it is your like that you are changing; you cannot change other users' likes). For each conversation or comment, Dayforce also displays the total number of likes to the right of the icon.
