So you've configured your first competition (or are thinking about it) and want to understand what communications you and your team members will receive. We've done most of the notification(s) work for you and will walk you through a step-by-step below.
On the Start Date of the competition, a notification will automatically post to the designated channel announcing the competition and accompanying information.
At any point during the competition, team members can click on the Leaderboard to see where they stand. The slack command /leaderboard can also be used by administrators to post the leaderboard to the channel.
Administrators can also always check-in on competition progress in the dashboard under the Awards / Competitions tab.
At the conclusion of a competition (based on either the end date or automatically calculated based on selection of recurrence) a notification will post to the channel announcing that the competition has ended including a button to see the Results.
At the same time, the attached Award will be automatically announced within the channel with all winners tagged.
