Trophies Vs Badges

  • A trophy is an award you get only if you take part in a game. If you do not take part in a game, you cannot win a trophy.
  • A badge is an award you get, not for winning a contest, but for completing a sales target. You do not have to be a part of a game in order to win a badge.

 Manage Trophies

Trophies are configured based on sales activities such as leads conversion, deal closure, task completion and so on. To configure a trophy, you must mention the sales activity, the criteria to be met in order for a person to win the trophy as well as the number of points that the trophy is worth.

  • Trophies for a game are awarded only based on the performance during that particular game period.
  • By default Zoho CRM has five trophies.
  • Users can create up to 20 custom trophies to their CRM account.

 Add New Trophies

To add a new trophy

  1. In your Zoho CRM account, click (the Settings icon) > Setup.
  2. Under General settings, click Gamescope.
  3. In the Gamescope page, click Trophies > + Add New.
  4. Specify the required details in the Add New Trophywindow.
    • Name - Enter a suitable name for the parameter.
    • Challenge - Provide a brief description about the trophy.
    • Module - Select the module on which the action has to be performed to win the trophy.
      You can create trophies for all modules except notes and emails.
    • Action - Select the action that has to be performed in the module.
      Create, Edit and Create or Edit are actions that are common to all modules. Apart from these, each module has some special actions associated with it. For example, Leads module has an action called Convert,Potential module has an action called Closed Won/Lost.
    • Trophy icon - Select an icon to represent the trophy from the list of available icons and name it as per your choice.
    • Criteria - Mention the criteria for the action to be performed .
    • Criteria Name - Enter a suitable name for the criteria for easy identification.
      The Point Label should not exceed 50 characters.
    • Points - Specify the points to be awarded each time the action, matching the criteria is performed. Each criteria should have a point associated to it.
      Points will not be awarded when the actions are performed in the following ways :
      Actions done using import , sheet view , bulk api insert; actions like automatic email response, automatic task creation that are performed by triggering automation workflow.

      For example, if the trophy is to be awarded to user who converts maximum leads from the Large Enterprise Industry, do the following:
      • Choose Leads as the module.
      • Choose Convert as the action.
      • Under Criteria choose Industry is Large Enterprise
      • Specify the number of points for the action.
        Also you can make this more interesting by providing multiple scoring scales. For example, under criteria you can provide multiple criteria each with different points. Say, if the Lead source is Webform, they can be given lesser points than a lead with a source as Chat. This is because obtaining a lead by directly interacting with them needs more effort than obtaining a lead through webforms.
