Feature Availability


Gamification in Zoho Connect is built around the concept of recognizing peers for their skills and achievements, and rewarding employees for their contribution to the company's intranet. Gamification can help organizations keep their employees engaged and motivated, and also promotes a positive work culture.

Gamification has three elements: badges, points, and levels.
Badges: Badges are the easiest way of recognizing the achievements, skills, and efforts of your colleagues and showcasing their accomplishments to others in the team. You can award a 'Thank You'  badge to a colleague who helped you with a difficult task to show your gratitude. 
Points: Points are the scalable way of measuring members' participation in the organization's intranet. Network members earn points for every action they perform, like sharing a post or voting in a poll. 
Levels: Levels are used to rank individuals based on the points they've earned. As members begin to accumulate points, they will effectively level up and gain new rankings, such as Beginner, Senior Member, and Pro User.
