Company Requirements: Gamification
Required User Privileges: Company Admin / Competition Admin
Step 1 - Competition Type
In the competition creation wizard, click on Time Matters.
Step 2 - Layout
In the second step of the wizard, you'll be asked to pick a layout for the competition. A layout is the theme of the competition as it's displayed on the TV-monitors. For instance, if the Bar layout is chosen, the competition will be visualized as a bar scene, with the participants competing in filling up the most glasses of beer.
Proceed by clicking the rightmost arrow at the bottom of the wizard.
Step 3 - Participants Type
In the third step of the wizard, you'll choose the type of participants. You can decide if Users should compete against one another, or if Teams should - or even Companies, if the SalesScreen subscription consists of a multiple-company structure.
You can also even create Custom Teams that will only exist in the context of the competition. This is easier understood through an example; if John is on Team-A and Beatrice is on Team-B, you can set up a competition where John and Beatrice are placed on the same team (e.g., Team-Awesome). Team-Awesome will exist as long as the competition is running, where team members are working towards a commong goal set by the bounds of the competition.
If available, you can enable the Executive switch, which lets you pit users, across all companies in your multi-company structure, against each other. This feature also enables you to pit teams across all the companies against each other - or the companies themselves, against one another. Custom teams are also supported, where you can create teams for the competition - with members from across all the companies.
Step 4 - Participants
In the fourth step of the wizard, you'll pick the participants of the competition. Find the appropriate description below based on your choice of Participant Type.
Participant Type is User
Select participants from users across all teams. This enables you to set up a competition between all users in the company, or between a specific subset of users.
Participant Type is Team
Select participating teams from the company. You can choose all teams or a subset of teams.
Participant Type is Company
Select participating companies from the list of companies on the left.
Participant Type is Custom Teams
First, enter a name for your custom team in the left text input field. Click Create new, to add it to the list below. You can now proceed to click on the newly created team and add users to the team from the list on the right.
Repeat the process until you have all the custom teams you need.
Step 5 - Settings
In the fifth step of the wizard, you'll define key settings of the competition - i.e. name, due date, report type etc.
The following are short descriptions of the different settings.
Set the name of the competition. In the example above, the name is set to "Time matters!".
The Name field helps to identify the competition slide that can be placed in playlists, which are displayed on TV-screens.
This field is handy when wanting to provide the competition with a short description.
The Description field helps to identify the competition slide that can be placed in playlists, which are displayed on TV-screens.
Start Date / End Date
Set the start date and end date of the competition. All relevant reports made by users after the Start Date and before the End Date, will count in the competition.
Select what report type is relevant to the competition. Reports can be of type Sales, Activities, Offers or Meetings. In the example above, the competition will compete on Sales. This means that only sale reports will count in this competition.
Select what products are relevant to the competition. The set of available products depends on what you compete on. Only reports, with the products included in this field, will count in the competition.
Time multiplier is an option unique to the Time Matters competition type and allows you to add extra excitement as your competition moves closer to the end. To illustrate how Time Multiplier works, let us take a simple example of a Time Matters competition starting on a Monday at 10:00 and finishing the same day at 15:00.
If you select Time Multiplier x5, we will look at the entire competition duration (5 hours) and divided in 5 equal parts (1 hour each). The time accumulated by the participant with the upper hand will be accumulated as following:
- From 10:00 to 11:00 - Normal speed
- From 11:00 to 12:00 - x2 as fast
- From 12:00 to 13:00 - x3 as fast
- From 13:00 to 14:00 - x4 as fast
- From 14:00 to 15:00 - x5 as fast
You can set this option to one of the following value: x1, x2, x3, x4, x5
Select the weekdays during which you want the competition to be active, that is the days during which participants are able to accumulate time.
Start / End of day
Select the start and end time for your business days. Between these, the competition will be active and participants will be able to accumulate time.
Enable custom business days
If you wish to have different business hours depending of the day of the week, activate this option will allow to customize for every single day of the week when the competition will start and stop being active.
Step 6 - Prizes
In the sixth step of the wizard, you can define prize(s) that will be awarded the winner(s) of the competition. You can choose to have no prize at all or even multiple prizes.
As seen at the top of the wizard, the Number of winners field decide how many participants can become winners of the competition.
For instance, if you choose to have two winners for the competition, the first place winner can get one prize and the second place winner can receive another. Or, they can both receive the same prize.
You can define and add prizes from the left side of the wizard. The following are short descriptions of the different prize fields.
Set the name of the prize. This field help to identify the prize later.
Set the description of the prize. This field help to identify the prize later.
You can set the minimum requirement for receiving the prize.
For instance, you can decide that no one is worthy of the prize, unless they rack up a total report amount of 50 000 - or, for instance, a total report quantity of 5.
The XP field sets the amount of experience points (XP) the winner(s) will be given upon receiving the prize.
You can upload a prize image.
Click Create Prize to add the prize and its details to the list.
Existing prizes can be edited or deleted by clicking on the respective icons as seen below.
Step 7 - Publish Your Competition
In the last step of the wizard you can choose none or multiple playlists to publish the competition slide to. This shortcut exists so that you don't have to assign the competition slide to your different playlists.
If you wish to announce the new competition, simply switch on Enable events. This results in a short presentation on TV-screens and computer monitors, when the competition officially starts.
Finally, click on Publish Competition.
