The Lowdown on AdvocateAnywhere
Meet your advocates on their playing field by embedding challenges with AdvocateAnywhere!
Influitive has a feature called AdvocateAnywhere that allows you to put challenges created in your AdvocateHub on any webpage whose code you have access to. Placing the challenge on a webpage or site is referred to as embedding a challenge.
Here's what this article will cover:
What does it look like?
When a challenge is embedded on a webpage, it will be visible to all people who visit that page. Visitors will see a square icon on the side or bottom of the webpage, and when they click on the icon, a widget will slide out. This widget slides out into the page, and contains AdvocateHub challenges that you choose to mark as embedded.
Site visitors can submit answers to complete the challenges. When all available challenges have been completed, they will see a message thanking them for their participation.
How does it work?
The ordering of the AdvocateAnywhere challenges works chronologically. As you complete each challenge the next oldest appears that is currently available to that user. This continues as long as the user has challenges available to them and then the widget will completely disappear from the screen.
Existing Advocates vs Site Visitors
If an existing advocate visits your website, their advocate account will be credited points for all embedded activities that they complete. If a site visitor completes a challenge that asks them to enter their name and email address for them, then they will automatically be added to your list of nominees. If you invite these nominees into your AdvocateHub, their account will automatically be credited points for all AdvocateAnywhere activities that they have completed.
Who can set this up?
Anyone on your team with access to your website's HTML can add in the necessary code to make this work. You can find these instructions here, here, and here. Once that's set up, you can build challenges and embed them in the widget. You'll need to know which challenges are AdvocateAnywhere compatible, as well as how exactly to embed a challenge from AdvocateHub.
