Full Users List, Including Inactive Users

Hey everyone! I am working with the API so far and am really liking all the documentation around it. I am working on building a custom dashboard for our stakeholders with the Achievers data and linking it with other HR data that we have. To be able to link the two data sets, I need a unique identifier for users so I am using email since the User ID in Relicnition is the the same as Employee ID. Thus, when I pull recognitions, I have to stitch the user id in the recognition with the user id in the users list and then stitch the email from the users list to the email in my other HR data. However, I noticed that pulling a users list, only returns enabled users, ie users currently at the company. This means that when an employee leaves, they are no longer in the user list and their recognition cannot be attributed with any data because there is no way to identify the user id. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Are there any ideas or solutions to this? Seems like there should be a way to pull a list of ALL users who have been on the platform at all so that data can be attributed and stitched across time periods.

Which Grant Type does the /upcoming-celebrations endpoint support?

I have been trying to hit this endpoint and keep getting a "Forbidden Request" response Says the allowed scope is read, and the request scope is read? Not sure why this is a forbidden request

Can you get "points to award" for a user via API call?

We are trying to create an Achievers integration that reminds users to award their available points to their teammates. However, it seems like there is no direct way to query the remaining points field (the /users call doesn't return this info). Any pointers would be helpful!

Alternative API for Posting Recognitions

Hello, We're creating an integration with the Achievers API and our automation platform. At the moment, we have a local account that can post recognitions successfully to the sandbox environment. Right now, the post looks like it is coming from this account. For our purposes, we would like to change the nominator of the post to the name of the invidual using the automation platform. We understand there is an existing API to request for authentication codes and access tokens that will have r/w access. We have been successful in generating those authentication credentials in order to post recognitions. However, we are looking for alternatives to post on behalf of someone. Is there an alternative API for posting on behalf of someone from this local account?

Can they provide us the Metadata for the application ?
