What are competitions?
Competitions are a fun way to gamify and automate mini-challenges among peers (person vs. person) or groups (team vs. team). Using number of shoutouts received, awards earned, points earned, or external data (contact us for integration support), you can create time-constrained competitions with automated notifications and fun leaderboards.
