What is a Challenge?
A flexible competition consisting of:
- Competitors (Individuals or Groups)
How will Users know about the Challenge?
Competitors will receive email notifications to alert them they are participating in an Ambition Challenge. Learn more about Competition emails here.
Challenges are also able to be monitored within Ambition. Learn more about monitoring Challenges here.
Can I export Challenge results?
No, at this time Challenge results are not exportable. If Prizes are set and awarded in a Challenge, each individual Challenge's prize winner can be exported. Learn more about Prize Exports here.
What are the options for how long or short a Challenge can be?
Shortest option for a one-off Challenge is 30 minutes.
Shortest option for a recurring Challenge is one hour.
Longest option for Challenges is 365 continuous days.
Can I create a multi-metric Challenge?
Yes! Up to 5 Metrics can be combined in a single challenge.
Can I schedule a recurring Challenge?
Yes! We include a guide to recurring Challenges here.
If a Group is actively participating in a Challenge, what happens if new users are added to the Group?
If the Hierarchy Level of a Challenge is a created Group Type (Role, Team, Location, etc), users that are moved into competing groups will automatically become participants in existing challenges. Data of new group members will contribute to the Group's score based on the group join date.
If the Hierarchy Level of a Challenge is Users > Within > a group, users that are moved into competing groups will not automatically become participants in existing challenges. If you want newly added team members to become active participants, navigate to the ongoing Challenge, and click Edit. Make no changes to the Challenge setup, and click Update Challenge.
What is different about an Activity or Objective Score Challenge?
Since Activity and Objective Scores are calculated on specific time frames, make sure your Challenge mirrors your Scorecard setup.
If your Organization utilizes monthly Objective Scores, make sure your Challenge starts on the 1st of the month.
If your Organization utilizes weekly Activity or Objective Scores, start your Challenge on Monday.
Can my half-day Challenge be scored on a user or team's daily average?
If any Challenge utilizing averages has a time frame shorter than 1 day (hour long, half-day, etc), the full day's average will be used in the score calculation.
How are Challenge Projections calculated?
Within the Challenge Overview page, Users can see how they or their team stacks up when compared to other competitors. A User can view progress towards each Metric in the Challenge, their score progression, and score projection (dotted line) which is calculated using historical performance data.
Projections are calculated by analyzing the past 12 weeks of data (if available) and makes an educated guess on what any individual user/team will score. The more data our system collects, the more accurate Projections get. With that being said, it is still just a prediction.
