How to create a contest

  1. Go to Gamification > Contests > + New contest.

  2. Add a contest name. Once you add the contest to a slideshow, the contest name will be displayed in the slideshow header.

  3. (Optional) Add contest description, the name of the prize, and an image. The more details you fill out, the more appealing the contest will seem.

  4. Choose the start and end dates. You need a time frame for your contest. Once added, Plecto will show a countdown on your contest.

  5. Select a formula such as the number of closed deals, completed tasks, won deal value, or any other metric. This will be the objective of your contest.

  6. (Optional) You can add a target value. If no target is added, the contest will look for the employees or teams with the highest value (highest number of deals, the value of sales, etc.).

  7. Choose the layout and a theme. You can choose between classic, podium, and leaderboard layouts.

    1. (Optional) You can disable the sidebar if you don't want to see the contest details, such as the prize name and description.

  8. Choose the contest type and add participants. You can choose to organize the contest between individual employees (players) or teams.

  9. To finish, click Save in the bottom-right corner.
