Reach an amount

reach an amount

Reach an amount: As the names explain, reach an amount. The amount could be based on accumulated points, a single point transaction or number of transactions of a score series. Also, the use of filter can extend the functionality by only allowing certain Point types and Tags. 

Point Calculation Rules Score series

Based on accumulated points: Set a target for when a player will receive this badge.Every time a player passes a certain amount in a scoring series that is accumulated points, the player will receive a badge. Note: it’s always a good idea to break down targets make sure they are reachable. It’s meant to motivate and trigger players.

Based on single point transactions: This is used to celebrate a big scored point value on one occasion. Every time a player scores a point above a certain value the players receive a badge.This could be a big sale over a certain amount.

Based on number of transactions: The new player scores first point and we all need to celebrate. It’s always fun to celebrate a newcomer first score with a “cake badge” or a “first strike badge”. Don’t stop there, celebrate at 5, 10 and even more transactions.
