We are thrilled to be able to unveil this new feature that we have been working on for quite some time. Teams is a strong mechanic that builds a sense of belonging but also social agency and cooperation. Team modes makes it possible for us to do gamification based on the activity of groups of users. We are introducing some new concepts:
First up is the basis for working with teams: we are making it possible to create teams and add users to these teams. We also make it possible for users to join teams without the need for administration.
Team modes of Modules
So, we can now create teams and users can join them, but what are the teams going to do together? This is where team modes comes into the picture. We are starting to roll out team modes for our existing modules - the teams will now progress together within those modules as they would individually. The first Team Mode we are releasing is for the level module but more will be added soon!
Team Levels Module
When the Team Level Module is included into the active Gamification package, the users whithin a team will start gather experience for the teams cellected progression. If the regular Level Module is also active, each individual user will gather experience on their own aswell. If a user leaves a team, they will not take the progression gathered for the team with them - they will however keep their personal level.
