Activity Self Assignment

Peer recognition is a concept that we always try encourage within an organisation but we also understand that you might need to have a number of top down awards to reward people for driving an organisation's culture and values - for example, attending social functions or team building events. 

These types of 'attendance register' based activities are normally given out by a designated administrator. Often times the person that captures these awards on Workpoints also earn these same awards, but they would have had to ask another admin on the program to award them separately. This is because until now, people on Workpoints would not be able to award themselves activities, regardless of their role.

We are excited to announce that you can now allow people in any chosen group to award themselves an activity that has been setup to allow self awarding. 

Simply open the activity setup screen,  click on the rules tab and scroll to the Self Assignment section. Click the add group button, choose the appropriate group and save the updated activity. 

You can now allow certain groups of people to award themselves an activity - great for register/attendance based functions!


In the example, we have allowed people in the managers group to award the Social Function activity to anyone, including themselves, who has attended a social function.

Another way to less administration and more celebration of everyone's contribution!

Super Leaderboards!

The leaderboards app has always been a well used tool on many Workpoints programmes. Now it's even better!
Now you can create your own multi-activity leaderboards!


Whats new?


We've added the capability to create custom leaderboards, each with their own combinations of activities. It's super simple to setup as well - just click "Add", set a name and choose the activities that will contribute to your new leaderboard. You can also choose if the leaderboard is calculated from the activities points, or just by the number of activities completed. 


What can I use this for?


Custom leaderboards are great for encouraging excellence in certain areas, and they are also great for short running campaigns. 

For example, you could create a "Wellness" leaderboard to draw attention to newly launched company health and wellness initiatives. Or you could have a long running Sales Superstars leaderboard, comprising of activities representative of the entire pipeline (eg. Generating Leads, Closing a Sale, Increasing Value etc). 

By adding these niche customisable leaderboards linked to your companies overall goals, you can keep more people interested and engaged - as people can shine in their particular areas of expertise. 

Power Tip: Consider awarding bonus points for  leaderboard winners to encourage even more participation and excitement!

Watch out for the new Leaderboard rolling out soon - and as ever, give us a shout at info@workpoints.co.za or through our Facebook page if you need more info or help!
