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.
