If you are an administrator for a group and you know that there are certain settings you want to hold through for all impacts, you are able to customize these settings by going to your group and clicking the blue "Manage" button. From there, click "Customize" > "Impacts."
You will then see several customization tabs. In the classic view you will be able to see "Group Impact Settings," "Global Impact Settings," and "Global Impact Questions." In the new view you will be able to see these same tabs, as well as "Network Settings."
"Group Impact Settings" will determine how you want impacts with your group to be created. This tab includes many more questions than in the below image; some important questions to consider are whether you want every impact to be tied to an event, how long after an event has ended a user can still make an impact, whether impacts should be automatically private, and more.
"Global Impact Settings" (classic view) or"Global Settings" (new view) offer more customization of how impacts created within your network will be added and verified. This includes whether impacts must have a specific verifier attached, whether users will have to include the email of whoever should verify their impact, and more.
"Global Impact Questions" allow you to add customized questions that users creating an impact in your group have to answer.
All of these help to ensure that you are capturing data in the most effective way possible for your group.
Note: If you are adding a group impact as an admin, your global impact questions will be displayed for you to enter data.
"Network Settings" are visible in the new view. These settings apply to everyone giving an impact to any group in your network. These settings allow you to set specific requirements for verification and whether or not reflections are required for each impact submitted to your network.
