Installing the plugin
Getting set up includes downloading the plugin and installing it from the Plugins page of the Admin Console. Note that if you later uninstall it, Gamification data will still be stored in the application, but won't be visible to users.
Starting the Gamification Console
If you have Community Manager rights, you can start the Gamification Console directly from the community site using the menu under your name or avatar. Or you can log in directly using credentials provided by your Community Manager.
Gamification Console Permissions
Jive Community Managers can automatically access the Nitro Studio console by clicking the Manage Gamification link in the menu under their name or avatar, but you can grant other users access by adding them as admins in the Gamification Console.
Missions define the sets of activities you want users to complete in the community, and the associated rewards.
Creating a Mission
You can create one by clicking Challenges > New > Mission in the Gamification Console.
Importing Badge Artwork
You can upload images to create your own custom badges. Make sure they match the required size and resolution.
Presenting Gamification Data
Gamification data is presented in three locations: in the Activity stream, in the Reputation tab of an individual user's profile, and on the Overview page of a place. Only the Overview page requires further configuration by a community manager.
Controlling Activity Stream Input
Stream input is controlled by callbacks in each mission. To keep a mission from posting information to the Jive activity stream, clear the Send Callback checkbox.
You can use metadata to limit the scope of an action to specific place, content type, or content item.
There are a number of widgets associated with Gamification, which can be used to display standings in your community.
Activity and Monitoring
The Activity and Monitoring features help you explore activity that happens in the console and in Gamification, including searching for user activity. The new data Import feature has some guidelines, so read on.
Analytics was formerly called Segments, and reports on gamification statistics.
