Missions define the sets of activities you want users to complete in the community, and the associated rewards.
A mission contains the following elements, each of which has its own tab:
The Who tab defines any prerequisites to completing a mission. These could be
previous missions completed, or point levels.
The Rules tab defines the actions you want the user to complete. A mission could
contain a single rule, or more than one, and users may be required to complete all the rules to
complete a mission, or just one of them.
The Rewards defines what the user gets for completing all the rules in a mission. You
can award any combination of points, badges, and actual real-world items. Rewards provide
incentive for completing the mission, but are not required. This tab is also where you upload
A set of default missions consisting of typical community activities is included in
Gamification. You can use these missions as is, modify them, or create your own. Note that any
missions that are enabled in the Gamification Console will be visible to users as soon as
Gamification goes live in your community.
Note: You'll see the word Challenges as
well as the word Missions in the interface. They're the same thing.
