Drum roll please… announcing Achievements!

One of the overarching goals for any community leader is to shine a bright light on your members. Their contributions should be publicly recognized. Now with Invision Community’s new Achievements system... you can!

Achievements is Invision Community’s native gamification system baked into our latest update, 4.6. 

We’ve dreamed up innovative actions for community leaders to publicly recognize members who show up and participate in meaningful ways.

Award Points and badges based on conditional Rules!

Here’s what you need to know...

Points

Our Achievements Points system keeps a running tally of Points. Members may earn Points in a multitude of ways. Essentially, it’s achieved by participating in the community. 

Create a topic? Points! Post a reply? Points! Follow another member? Nothing. Just kidding… Points!!!

This is done through creating Rules.

Rules

Rules are actionable processes set up in the admin panel. 

Here are what members can earn Points for:

When a...

  • Member joins a club
  • Reaction is given
  • New poll is created
  • User follows a content item
  • Review is posted
  • Member logs in for the first time that day
  • New club is created
  • Content item/comment is promoted or featured
  • Comment/reply is posted
  • User follows a forum, blog, gallery, category etc
  • User votes on a poll
  • User is followed
  • New content item is posted
  • Post is marked as best answer

There are also corresponding When/Then Rules for each item listed above. 

When this action happens, then this subsequent action happens.

Example: when a member posts 10 times, then this Badge is awarded.

Badges

Community leaders can also create specific Rules when deciding what actions earn Badges. 

For example, reward your members with a Badge for visiting your community for 20 days.
Once a member reaches 20 visits or more over 20 days, the Achievements system will automatically award them a ‘20 Visits’ Badge you’ve previously created.

Ranks

In 4.6, we’ve completely revamped our Ranks system to communicate with Achievements. 

Achievements’ Ranks system will replace our previous Ranks system*

Set up different Ranks based on how many Points a member earns. Ranks display a members’ perceived value to the community. The higher a members’ Rank, the greater their influence because the more they’ve participated. 

Ranks are currently for prestige at the moment. 

Here's our example for a pretend Coconut community:

There’s a lot of information to absorb here, but if there’s anything to take away from this blog post it’s this: empower your contributing members with Achievements and watch your community grow. It creates an immersive and elevated experience for your die-hards. And hey, who doesn’t love to earn? 

When 4.6 and Achievements is officially released for all, we’ll hold a live Q&A event for you to join and ask any questions you may have.

Props? Concerns? Comments? Questions? We’d love for you to sound off in the comments! Not only because we want to hear from you, but because it’ll earn you some sweet, sweet Points, too!

is this separate from the Group promotion or in addition or a replacement?

It's separate, although we want to tie it into Group Promotion (promote when user reaches N points)

Can this also track times? For an instance if the user has been logged in 200 hours we can award them for their time of being online.

Kind of, you can set up a concurrent log in, it's one of the new default rules.

Looking forward to this! Currently we're using Fosters Trophies to do this. Will the IPB-version also allow manually giving awards that aren't based on rules?

This. As I want to give trophies a sense of uncertainty because I think it feel more rewarding when you get something it wasnt expected

I love this feature,  I hope see it grow.
And congrats to Jordan, no doubts invision needed someone like you!

So will the achievements have the group promotion built-int when it's launched? I mean, if a certain user has accomplished X, his user group can be upgraded/promoted to user group B? Thanks

Can there please, please, please be a page like the leader board that can show of who has the most points (user and groups) and be highlighted. Can you please, please, please also set time limits! To be able to reset the points once a year, or monthly, etc. I love this whole concept and you’re on to a winner!

Czy tam, proszę, proszę, strona taka jak tablica liderów, która może pokazywać, kto ma najwięcej punktów (użytkowników i grupy) i być wyróżniona. Proszę, proszę, ustalcie też terminy! Aby móc zresetować punkty raz w roku, co miesiąc itd. Uwielbiam tę całą koncepcję i jesteś zwycięzcą!

Wall of Fame ❤️ + Widget with leaders

Are the badges that you show both in the video and here on this site default ones that come with 4.6?
Will there be a pre-designed page where all the available ranks and their requirements are being listed?
Can a user earn multiple badges? If yes, which one shows up in the postbit? Can the user decide?

Looks great, hopefully someone can find a way to tie this into subscriptions with group promotion.  Something like keeping your subscription/group level based on hitting an achievement over a set amount of time, or something like that. A member answers "x" amount of posts over "x" amount of time, they get to keep their group setting or subscription for free. Just brainstorming...lol

@Jordan Invision great job on the video. 👍

OMG! I just finished implementing in game achievement for the poker game, it just miss to connect real time REST API call to award points, badges and level up. It will be feature rich with already Oauth2 support with core achievement system integration.
