User activity points are a great way to visualize and track who the most active users are on any given board. This information is helpful in following the level of participation on the board and rewarding users based on active participation in board activities. Additionally, users themselves may follow their activity in relation to others.
There are a few things you may want to know when it comes to configuring the activity points. Especially regarding what activities you want to give out points and how much. Thinking these settings through is important, especially if following activity points becomes a regular practice, as it means having to make fewer edits later on that may result in changes to the accumulated points on the board.
Managing the settings
The fastest way to configure user activity points is by going to "Settings" in the admin portal of your board. The following changes can only be made by an admin of the board.
Losing activity points
It's important to note that activity points will be calculated on the board based on the existing ideas' likes, comments, and evaluations. This means that if an idea is deleted from the board, all the associated activity points for that idea will also be subtracted from the existing points.
Deactivated users (e.g. those that have left the company)
Please note that if a user account is deactivated, they will still retain their points on the leaderboard as their account exists and their user is the author of the respective activities. If you use a time period other than "All time", they will naturally fall down the leaderboard with time.
If you don't want to wait for that to happen, which might e.g. make sense if you use the leaderboard to reward people, you can anonymize their account to avoid confusion. Please note that anonymization is an irreversible action, so proceed with caution!
On the board
The user activity points will be shown in the top right of the board. By hovering your mouse above the list, you can scroll up and down to see the activity points of all users with activities on the board. To see from what types of activities the person has received their activity points, simply hover your mouse above their points.
Don't forget to save your changes!
Green "Save" buttons can be found on all pages where changes can be made. Clicking this activates those changes.
