What is Mimecaster Central Gamification?

 

Mimecaster Central Gamification is a system that lets you earn points, badges, levels, and even prizes as you participate in the community. Your growing expertise gains you extra benefits, recognition and Mimecaster Central Swag!

 

This adds fun to our community participation by gamifying it. This includes rewarding points and badges to motivate you to create, interact with, or view different content types. You can start by participating in the community and earning points.

Here's more about the gamification terms used in Mimecaster Central:

 

Missions

Group of actions required to earn a badge and/or points. A single mission can reward you with points, a badge, or both.

 

Badges

Fun images posted to your profile after completing a mission so everyone can see what you've accomplished.

 

Points

Tally of how much you've earned by earning badges or completing actions in the community.

 

Levels

Benchmark that represents where you stand in relation to others in the community. You can move up levels by earning points.

 

Completing Missions

Missions are created by the Community Manager to provide short-term goals to help you obtain points and badges, and reach higher levels.

Check out what missions are available in Mimecaster Central by going to the top right and clicking your avatar > View Profile > Reputation. Then click on Missions in the left column.

You can use the drop down to sort the missions by Earned and Unearned:

Each mission card tells you how many points you earn when you complete the mission and earn the badge. It also describes the mission. It might say "Create 25 pieces of content " or "Install 5 apps," and this is how you'd complete the mission.

By completing a mission, you will earn a badge and points!

 

Earning Points

Participate in the community to earn points. These points are what you need to advance to higher levels.

Basically, you can earn points by taking certain actions in your community, such as liking a blog post, creating an idea, or asking a question.

You can complete missions as a fun way of earning points and gaining new levels.
