create 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:

How To

  1. Click the Challenge Milestones button.
  2. Click the Add Milestone button.
  3. 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.
    1. 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.
    2. If you have additional awards to enter for this particular milestone, repeat step a; otherwise, Click Save.
  4. 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.
