Points, or as we will call them XP points, are awarded to the user for every action they perform in the system, from editing an Account record, searching for a Contact, or simply logging in. These XP points accumulate as users work toward achieving levels of competence in the system.
To understand how many points are awarded to each action you need to understand the goals for point allocation:
- To Reward System Use
- To Reward Best Practices
It is also important to consider that some actions require less manual effort and/or would be performed more regularly than others.
XP point allocations vary depending on the action performed, additional points are allocated for actions that require additional effort and/or promote business and system best practices such as closing a deal or converting a lead.
Example point allocation
|Creating a new Opportunity||10||Standard action|
|Updating an Opportunity||10||Standard action|
|Winning an Opportunity||50||Best Practice|
|Creating a Lead||10||Standard action|
|Updating a Lead||10||Standard action|
|Converting a Lead||25||Best Practice|
|Searching for records||5||High Frequency|
|Performing an import||20||Low Frequency|
