Challenges are great ways to keep users engaged with the app and motivate them to complete tasks.
In a keep points challenge, you will assign a starting value. For example, all participants will start will 100 points. You will also need to set a target value, likely the same as your starting value.
Then you will need to assign a point value for each of the tasks in your plan that you want users to complete. Keep in mind that the points should total your target value (100 in this example).
NOTE: You must have any activities with points associated included in your plan in order for users to obtain the points.
Next, you will need to determine if you want your challenge will be a one time challenge with a start and end date or a recurring challenge.
It is important to understand that challenges are simply tied to dates they do not correspond to the users plan.
One Time Challenge
To create a one time challenge, simply pick a start and end date. Please keep in mind if it is a one time challenge and a user added to a challenge half way between the two dates, they will not have as much time as other challenge participants.
For example, if your challenge is a year long and starts in January. When a new participant is added in June. They only have 6 months to complete the challenge.
If you will have participants entering and completing the challenge at various times throughout the year, you will just want to be sure that they have enough activities scheduled in their plan to maintain their target score.
To create a recurring challenge, simply select a Start Date. Then select your Period Units (days, weeks, months) and the Period Length. In this example we are scheduling a challenge to repeat weekly for 1 year (52 weeks).
It is important to remember that challenges are directed by calendar dates and do not align with plan weeks. For this reason, we recommend starting weekly repeating challenges to start on a Sunday or Monday or monthly challenges to repeat on the first of the month to make it easy for participants.
