Gamification - Engagement & Rewards

Understanding and monitoring the engagement level of your users is a crucial part of maintaining and growing a successful online community. Fortunately, the HLHigher Logic platform makes this easy by providing a wide range of Engagement Types for you to manage. Assigning point values (i.e., Weight) to the Engagement Types that are important to your organization is a great way to measure the engagement level of your members and the types of content they enjoy, which in turn provides insight into how best to grow and evolve your online community.

Performing actions across your site to earn points incentivizes users to remain active for months and years to come, because the points they earn result in digital rewards in the form of Ribbons. These Ribbons are displayed prominently on a user's profile and the Most Active Members widget, which is often displayed on a site's main home page for everyone to see.

NOTE: Refer to the Set Up Ribbons & Badges page to learn how to manage your site's ribbons.
