How to Enable Points
Admins have the ability to customize and configure the 'Points' label. Points management allows you to create a leaderboard of user activity. The leaderboard can be customized by calculation of points for attendance, no shows, donations or anything else that shows engagement or disengagement.
To enable the points feature, navigate to 'Points' > 'Manage Points' within the group dashboard.
Once you have enabled Points, you can create a Leaderboard by selecting ' Blue Actions > Create New Leaderboard'.
Then you can title your Leaderboard, select its visibility, and select a Start and End Date for the Leaderboard. Once you have entered this basic information you will be able to set the point values awarded for impacts, hours, donations, and no-show penalties.
How to Manage the Points System
You can create point values for different types of events. For example, a user impact may be ten points while a non-service impact may be five points. You can also create negative points in cases of "no-shows" as a penalty.
You can also set specific point values for individual events, you will click on "Add Event" and there will be a drop menu to select from your published events.
You can assign rules to earn points in this section. In this example, each logged impact on the selected Event will earn 5 points, with a maximum of 20 points in total. This means only 4 impacts by a single user for the selected event will contribute to their leaderboard total.
You can edit a Leaderboard by selecting 'Blue Actions' > 'Edit Leaderboard'. Here you can make any changes or edits that you did when you first created the Leaderboard.
Once you create a public point leaderboard it will be displayed on your group's page. Below is an example widget that is displayed.
If your group has a unique point management system that involves deducting points for individuals not attending events or opportunities, this feature allows you to configure it. For example, if the "no-show points" are set to -1, every time an individual fails to show up, they will receive a deduction of -1 point.
In certain cases, you may want to deduct points based on the duration of the event. If this feature is enabled for a 5-hour event and an individual doesn't show up, our system will automatically multiply the "No-Show Points" by the event duration. For instance, if the "No-Show Points" are -1 and the event is 5 hours long, the system will deduct -5 points (-1 point multiplied by 5 hours) from the individual's total.
Navigate to 'Points' and select 'Manage Points' > 'Edit Leaderboard.' Navigate to 'Point Settings' to input the penalty.
