Pointagram has two types of players:
Players and Offline Players.
The only difference is that Offline Players does not have an own user account login. Offline players are managed by the admin.
Offline players can be useful when setting up a new account. Users can be imported from for example a CRM system as offline users and the admin can then decide who gets to play by converting offline users to players.
Players doesn’t have to be human, it all depends on what you want to play with. A player could for example represent an asset or a store.
A player has a profile where the player can see all achievements such as trophies and badges but also a widget for statistics.
