Adding Challenge Milestones And Awards
Using milestones and awards to bolster participation and simplify administration
Many fitness challenges will have predefined milestones that, once reached, will make a certain awards available to the participant.
While milestones can be set up for any type of challenge, they are almost always used for individual challenges where participants are not competing
against one another and are, instead, trying to reach a goal.
The ChallengeRunner system allows the program administrator to build challenge milestones that are shown on the leaderboard. It will also allow the admin
to establish awards available once the milestone is reached and a report to show the award that each qualifying participant selects. In order to set milestones
perform the following:
- Click the Challenge Milestones button.
- Click the Add Milestone button.
- Enter the milestone Name and the associated Value in the popup box provided. The Value represents the numeric point value the
participant must achieve to reach this milestone. If you optionally wish to enter award information so that participants may select
awards once they reach this milestone, proceed to step a below; otherwise, click the Save button.
Click the Add Award button and fill out the award Name and Description. You may also optionally upload an image of the award
for users to view. Click Save.
If you have additional awards to enter for this particular milestone, repeat step a; otherwise, Click Save.
If you have additional milestones to enter for this particular challenge, repeat step 3; otherwise, click the cancel (x) button.
• If you choose to use awards in a challenge, a new link will appear for both participants and admins. If participants click the
link, it will display awards and, if they are eligible, allow them to select one. If admins click the link, a report will pop up showing participants
and the awards they selected.
