Points & Score Series
Points is the core of Pointagram. Whenever a player scores a point it is logged in something we call a score series. The score series keeps track on who scored how many points when. Every scored point is social, every player can see points scored in a social feed and comment on each other’s achievements.
You can set up any number of score series in your account. For example, one score series for sales and another for booked appointments. With this set up you are ready to start competitions and award badges based on Sales and booked appointments.
A score series can be set up to accept points by manual input of points or from a selection of predefined types. It can allow players to award points to themselves or reserve the right to an administrator. Score series can also be a target for an integration to for example your CRM-system.
Displays all the available score series and from here players can score a point or a point type. This page is found by clicking on Points.

How to revoke points
Revoke points by pressing on “More Options” in the selected Score Series, just like in the picture below, and this will lead you to points history page.

Unit name singular

Tags can be used to give some more context to points. Tags can be used to give some more context to points. Let’s say that a deal was closed for a new customer and part of a sales campaign. Instead of just adding 100 points you could add 100 points with the tags ‘New customer’ and ‘Fall campaign’. The tags would be visible in the newsfeed and in the point history.
To start using tags just click the Tags button for any score series and add the tags you want to use. Tag fields will be visible in score series input/history once you have at least one tag added.
Score series limits
Limits is a way to limit the number of points given per day, week and/or month. Limits can either be per player to give or global for the entire score series. You can for example set up that players can give a maximum of 7 points per week to other players or limit the number of point transactions to be given to 1 per day for a certain score series.
When limits are active for a score series players can see the current usage in the score series screen.
