Setting Eligible Activities

Scavenger Hunt gamification app rewards users for performing specific actions within Confluence and Jira. However, we must admit that Scavenger Hunt is not actually a hunt in the traditional sense. Instead, we use some fancy math to simulate a scavenger hunt, which has many programmatic advantages but a few coolness downsides. We apologize for the let down, but we believe that system performance and fairness are more important than pretending to be out in the field with a map and a compass.

Users are granted reward ‘increments’ for performing selected actions based on random probability. You have the flexibility to enable or disable eligible activities for both Confluence and Jira, as well as adjust the probability of reward increments for each activity.

This customization allows you to assign greater reward frequency to high-value activities, such as page and blog creation, and lower frequency to less significant actions, such as likes and comments. By fine-tuning the probabilities, you can design a reward system that incentivizes users to engage in activities that are most beneficial to your team or organization.
