You can begin using Jive Gamification by completing missions that earn you points and badges. Missions vary depending on your community, but they are based on earning points and/or badges from active participation in your community by doing things like creating or liking content, writing blog posts, or updating your status.
Jive Gamification provides levels to see how you measure with others in the community. You might be motivated to level up because you want that kind of recognition, or because your community rewards it. Levels can also help you identify experts and key players who can help you collaborate your way to great results. Based on your organization's goals, your community admin decides what activities are most valuable and sets challenges, or missions, that can earn you rewards and a fantastic community reputation above and beyond the glory of being a top contributor.
