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 badge artwork.
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.
