Gamification motivates members to act through competition and rewards. When gamification is enabled, a Gamification icon becomes available on the left-hand taskbar.
There are five tabs on the gamification page: Settings, Rewards, Redemptions, Member Points, and Quests.
This screen shows which rewards have been redeemed by community members.

- Goods—A physical reward that needs to be mailed. For example brand t-shirts or water bottles.
- Bonus Points—Points that are added to a member’s point balance.
Reward redemption types are actions that must be achieved before the reward is unlocked. There are four options when the reward unlocks:
- Points—Unlocks when the member has earned enough points.
- Quest Giveaway—Unlocks when the member completes a quest.
- Quest Raffle—Unlocks when the member enters a raffle and wins it.
- Quest Leaderboard—Unlocks only to members who have earned the most points in the quest.
The rest of the needed information for Custom Rewards is the same as for Partner Rewards above.
Member Points Tab
This section provides a convenient dashboard of member actions that generate points. Actions are filterable by...
- Specific actions
- Status of your point transactions:
Set up a collection of actions, connected with logic, offering one or more rewards for successful completion. Click the + button on this screen to get started.
After saving your Quest for the first time, a Quest Status is added to the Quest with the following values:
- Created—The quest has been created but is not running yet, because the quest start date is still in the future.
- Running—The quest start date has passed and the quest is running. Members performing the quest's steps are considered to have completed the quest if the moderator doesn't deny the gamification eligibility of their actions.
- Stopped—The quest has been manually stopped by the moderator. Quest cannot be restarted.
- Ended—The quest end date has passed. Members can continue to perform the quest's steps, but they will not count toward completing the quest.
- Completed—All quest participants have been processed, and the participants and winners lists are complete.
Set up and activate Actions & Points and Rewards with the following settings:
- Gamification Delay—How many days the member has to wait between performing an action and getting rewarded for it. By setting a delay, the moderator will have the ability to deny the eligibility of action if the quality of engagement was subpar. When set to 0 days, members will immediately be rewarded points for their engagement.
- Require Phone Number for Verification—We recommend enabling phone validation for users who have been considered suspicious on the platform. Change the settings to add validation for all users or disable it completely. Please consider, disabling this feature might allow users who will try to abuse the system.
- Activate actions & points—When turned on, the “Points” section will be displayed in the member’s gamification center.
- Activate rewards—When turned on, members will be able to see the available awards that are available to them. You can create and import rewards in the ‘Rewards” tab.
