Set Up Reputation Levels

Define Reputation Levels

Reputation Levels reward members points for engagement within the community such as answering a question, sharing a post, or being endorsed for knowledge on a topic. When reputation is enabled for the Ursa Major Solar community, 10 default levels are added. You can add or remove levels, give each level a name, and update the point range and image for each level.

  1. From the Administration menu, click Reputation Levels and fill out as follows (leave point ranges as is):
    • Level 1: Novice
    • Level 2: In the Know
    • Level 3: Expert
  2. Click the x to the right of level 10 to remove the level.
  3. Continue to delete levels 9 through 4 the same way so only the top three named levels remain.
  4. Click Save.

Next, customize the points associated with certain actions.

  1. Click Reputation Points.
  2. Review the point values entered by default, and make the follow change: Ask a Question: 55
    Reputation points
  3. Click Save.

Test the point assignments by asking a question on the community.

  1. Click the Administration tile in the upper left and click Builder.
  2. Click Preview in the upper right.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Ask Your Peers.
