Before you start
Ambition Fantasy Competitions are highly structured competitions. There's only a little bit of setup, but a lot to understand. If you haven't already, read up on What is an Ambition Fantasy Competition?
Create a Fantasy Competition:
1. Open the left navigation and click Administration > Competitions > Fantasy.
2. Click the green + Add Competition button.
3. Create your Fantasy Competition by filling in the following fields:
Name your Fantasy Competition. We recommend sticking with Season-Based titles such as Sales Season 1 Fantasy League
Select the Monday you want your Competition to start. Since weekly matchups always start on Monday, your season must as well.
Regular Season Weeks
How many weeks of regular season play? At least 1 week of regular season play has to occur.
Note: Remember that 2 weeks are always reserved for playoffs.
Days Per Game
How long does each weekly matchup run? It can be as short a 1 (Monday's only), up to 7 (All week long, great teams with contribution over the weekend).
Game End Hour
Does your team focus in the morning and save meetings for afternoons? Maybe consider half-day games?
Do your teams work multiple shifts? Maybe a 24 hour window is better to cover all competitor's schedule?
Which Time Zone are your competitors in?
Most Customers choose to pick the timezone of their most western players (e.g. 5 pm pst). This allows those eager East coasters the ability to stay late to clinch the victory
4. Click the green Next Step button to continue creation.
5. Select the Metric to be used as the basis of scoring.
Select a metric for your competition. This metric will determine each competitor's weekly score.
Best Practice: It's important to choose a metric that's updated frequently enough to drive team behavior. We recommend that a metric which is updated at least hourly with real-time metrics.
Our multi-metric, normalized aggregates Activity Score & Objective Score allow you to compete across cross functional roles (e.g. AEs & BDRs) or with unbalanced teams.
If you wish to compete on Objective Score you can only do so if the Objective Score time frame is set to Weekly.
This is the metric that your teams will compete on. We recommend using our multi-metric normalized aggregate; Activity Score.
If you choose to use another metric, we strongly encourage you to use real-time metrics. Lagging metrics undermine the spirit of competition and make it hard for contributors to stay engaged.
Lastly, if you chose to use Ambition's Objective Score, you must ensure that the Objective Score Timeframe (Set in Organizational Settings) is set to "Week". Since this setting applies to your entire Ambition instance, only Administrators have access to change it.
