Basic User Tasks

The tasks on this page include things that pertain to each user, such as managing gamification features like coins or using widgets like tasks.

Create and Join Challenges

Challenges allow you to earn coins through workplace competitions that you can use to purchase items in the Marketplace. The Challenges module provides a central method for you to create and join challenges, plus view details on pending and existing challenges. A supervisor or administrator can set the parameters for which users can create challenges. This section explains how to create and join challenges.

Create a Challenge

  1. Navigate to your dashboard with a Challenges module.
  2. Click the Challenges tab at the top of the module.
  3. Click Create New Challenge.
  4. Configure the Challenge Setup window by determining the metrics by which you want to challenge, the duration and date, and how many coins you want to wager.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Invite the users you want to participate in the challenge by clicking the checkbox next to their name. You can search for specific users in the search bar at the top.
  7. Click Invite.

Your challenge will appear in the Challenges tab of this module under the Pending list until it begins.

Join a Challenge

You can join challenges by clicking Accept in one of the following two locations:

  • The Challenges tab of your Challenges dashboard module
  • The notification item in your Notification Center
After clicking Accept, a window appears confirming that you want to join the challenge and how many coins you must wager to join. Click Yes, I'm sure! or Yes to finish joining.

Join Games

Games are similar to challenges, but are created by an administrator and pay out rewards from the system (you do not need to wager coins to play). An administrator can set up multiple types of games, some games are designed for you to compete against yourself and pay out rewards based on your performance, and other games are designed to compete against other agents. Your Games dashboard module is your access point for anything game-related. You can view invitations to play games, view game details, and join games directly from this module. If you want to join a game, click the blue Join Game button to view more information on what the game is, what the prizes will be, and so forth. Click Play Game to actually join the game.

View Your Rules

Rules are competitions within your contact center that reward coins, badges, and experience points which can be used for features like customizing your avatar or in the Marketplace. Click WidgetsRules to view rules in which you are participating along with relevant performance information directly from the side-menu.

Click on a rule to view your performance for that rule. This My Performance window will show your anticipated award for the rule, the current rankings, and the blue How Can I Do Better? icon that shows detailed information on your performance for the rule.

Manage Your Profile

You can access your profile in the upper-right corner of the Performance Management window by clicking your profile picture and selecting Profile & Avatar in the drop-down. Your profile window displays total gamification stats (such as how many coins or gems you have earned), your avatar, and allows several customization options such as adding a bio for yourself or changing the look of your avatar. You can also view your teammates' avatars by selecting Avatar Gallery. If you want to change the language of your Performance Management interface, click the profile drop-down in the upper-right corner, hover over Language, and select your desired language from the available options.

View Your Coin History

Your coin history allows you to see your coin balance, the sources of coins you have earned, and the items on which you have spent coins.

  1. Click your profile icon in the upper right corner and select Profile & Avatar.
  2. Click the coin counter above your avatar to open the coin history window.

Purchase Products in the Marketplace

The Performance Management Marketplace provides prizes and products to spend your hard-earned rewards from participating in games and challenges. The process of purchasing a product is similar to any standard process of online shopping.

  1. Check the amount of coins you have in your profile.
  2. Click the shopping cart icon in the top-right corner of the interface.
  3. Browse through the available products. Notice whether or not a product is on sale, if it has quantity limitations, and the price.
  4. Click Add to Cart to add the product to your shopping cart. You can put multiple items in your shopping cart and purchase everything at the same time.
  5. Click the shopping cart icon in the top-right corner of the Marketplace to view all items you have added to purchase. If you have items in your cart, a red icon with a number will display in the cart.
  6. Review the items in your cart and make any edits to the quantities or items.
  7. Click Checkout to complete the purchase process.

Depending on the items you purchased, talk with your supervisor if you are uncertain about attaining your purchased items.

View and Create Tasks

Coaches, supervisors, and others with appropriate permissions can create tasks and assign them to agents as needed. Agents can create their own task list to manage their priorities. The task list displays Tasks, the Due Date for each task, and who each task was Assigned By (or Assigned To for tasks sent to others). You can sort the list by any of these values. The default sort is in ascending order by due date.

A task with a coach's whistle indicates the task was assigned during a coaching session. Tasks turn red if they are incomplete and the due date has passed.

  1. Click WidgetsTasks to display the tasks pane, which opens on a tab with your To-Do list. If you do not see the task you want, you can search for it by clicking the magnifying glass in the upper right corner of the pane. You can also filter the list to display all tasks, incomplete tasks, or tasks completed within the last 30 days.
  2. Select the checkbox for a task to mark it complete.
  3. If you want to, you can see a list of tasks you have assigned to others, click the Sent tab.
  4. Click anywhere outside of the tasks pane to close it.

Take and Submit Surveys

You can view and take surveys in the widgets drop-down of the side-menu. You can view surveys that are assigned to you, as well as those you have completed.

  1. Click WidgetsSurveys to see the list of surveys. The Available tab lists any surveys assigned to you individually, to groups of which you are a member, or both. The Completed tab shows surveys you have previously submitted.
