Gamification Feature

This chapter explains how the gamification feature works for regular users, authors, co-authors, and site managers.

Note: This feature is not part of the default Open Social product (basic/distro) but can be ordered as a paid extension module.

 

What is the Gamification feature? 

Gamification is an Open Social extension that lets your members earn points through community activities. You can increase engagement and find out who your super-users are with a leaderboard.

An extension to increase community engagement:

  • Create leaderboards
  • Stimulate engagement
  • Compare member activity

Encourage activity and engagement

Decide which community activities or actions earn points – and how many points they earn compared to other activities. New leadership blocks in the management dashboard let you see which members are at the top according to points earned through engagement and activity. Create challenges that members can complete to earn badges or points – and stimulate engagement by letting them display their achievements publically!
