Overview: Nominees, 'Not Joined' Advocates, and Advocates
This article will outline:
Typically, nominees are people who have never been in an AdovcateHub and have not received an invite.
Please note that if SSO is enabled on your hub there may be some extra things you need to think about regarding Nominees, please read more here.
Not Joined Advocates
Once you invite/upgrade a nominee, they are moved from the Nominees list to the main Advocates list, as they become Not Joined Advocates.
Advocates are the individuals who have been invited and have signed up to an AdvocateHub. The invitation they use to sign up can be in the form of an Invite URL or an email sent from the Invite Nominees page within the AdvocateHub.
Check out this article to get more info about how you can invite advocates into the hub.
|Nominees||Not Joined Advocates||Advocates|
|Access to Hub?||No||Yes (upon signing up)||Yes|
These are the normal flows for your customers as you bring them into your AdvocateHub. However, with Nominee Nurturing or Open Signup enabled, a few things change:
With Nominee Nurturing enabled, you can give existing advocates of your choice the power to invite others into your AdvocateHub via an invite URL. Contrary to the typical Nominee definition above, if you've turned on Nominee Nurturing, anyone who follows this link will be able to sign up and enter the AdvocateHub as a Nominee. This feature is currently in Beta, if you'd like to enable it, please email Influitive's Support Magicians at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details, please read this article which explains how to use it.
Enabling Open Sign-up allows anyone to visit and sign up to your AdvocateHub, with or without an invitation by entering the AdvocateHub's URL. In the Open Sign Up Settings (Name Dropdown > Settings > System > Login / Security), you can configure whether these new users to become nominees or advocates. Visit this article for more details.
For both Nominee Nurturing and Open Sign Up, you may want to configure the experience for nominees. As a general rule you can toggle the Challenges, Rewards, and Discussions tabs to be visible or not to nominees. This can be configured in New Member Permissions (Settings > System > New Member Permissions.
This functionality is outlined here in more detail. Then, in each of the main hub areas, you can choose to target specific challenges, rewards, and discussions forums to nominees, as explained in this article.
