Driving Online Communities With Dynamic Gamification

by on December 21, 2021

Gamifying your online community is an effective way of driving highly-engaging user experiences.

Did you know that the global gamification market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 32% by 2026?

As businesses realize the value that gamification brings to online communities, this market is only expected to expand further.

Now while Salesforce enables you to host your online community, there are limitations with regard to the extent to which you can gamify the user experience.

In this read, we look at challenges in community gamification, as well as how ScoreNotch enables you to dynamically gamify your Salesforce-powered community.

Let’s begin!


Limitations With Community Gamification in Salesforce

When hosting your community on Salesforce Experience Cloud, you can:

  • Only perform 10-15 basic gamification-related actions
  • Only gamify Feed Items and Knowledge-Base
  • Not gamify other standard and custom objects
  • Not customize your leaderboard with pre-built themes
  • View all users or historic scoring data
