Ways triggers can be used:
- Award points when user uploads a profile picture
- Award points when a user responds to a poll question
- Award points when a user gives a specific response to a poll question
An example of a way to use triggers (user responds to choice poll choice), is to add a question at the end of a survey which says "Would you like to receive xx free points for completing the survey" with a Yes / No answer.
It's really handy being able to automatically assign points to users who upload a profile picture.
If using a trigger to award points, make sure the gamification module has the toggle on for "Show scores for the whole app on the leaderboard ( including all modules and points awarded for triggers )" in the settings tab.
