Is there a way to allocate points or incentivise attendees posting their updates to social media as well as in the App?

    Hi Jessica - We're so glad to hear you loved the app!
    Regarding your question about social media, have you checked out this post -

    Hi DoubleDutch Support. Yes I did see that answer but that's incentivising people to use the hashtag inside of the App rather than both inside and outside.

    There's not a way to award the points in the app for sharing outside, but in the information to attendees in the app, you could make sure the social setting is enabled in your CMS and strongly encourage them to link up their Twitter accounts to the app and share their posts in the app as well as on Twitter. You could also run a separate contest for just for posts that are also shared to Twitter and share that contest information in the app to further encourage the behavior you're looking for.

    Helllooo? Also interested in knowing if we can allocate points for activities that are not status updates (well, ok, they ARE status updates, but they are selfies with specific people, so not just counting status updates).

    Hi Karen, If you add an app section dedicated specifically to the type of contest you want to promote, you can allocate points to activity posted in that section. e.g., you can create an info view section called #selfiecontest and provide instructions on what type of photos you want people to post in that section (either by navigating to that section and posting directly from there, or by selecting that item from the "i'm at...." bubble under a regular activity feed post), and then you can configure that section to award points for posts to it.
