We’ve introduced a new term today – “ScoreBook”. We’ve done this to make it easier for new Risers to understand the difference between the software (the ScoreBook) and the output of the software (Leaderboards, Scorecards etc.)
A ScoreBook is the hub for your scoring program on rise.global. Here’s a diagram that explains what’s going on:
Breaking this down further:
Into your ScoreBook goes:
- your list of Users (whether they be people, organisations or things (website URLs))
- These Users can optionally be grouped into Teams
- For each User you add their latest Score Entries
The ScoreBook will process the users and score entries according to the Score Algorithm that you set in the ScoreBook Settings.
Out of your ScoreBook come “Score Bulletins” – snapshots of the ScoreBook for a specific time period (e.g. this month, last month, this week, last week, today’s score and so on).
Each Score Bulletin can include:
- LeaderBoards to show the ranking tables either by user or by team
- User and Team ScoreCards to show the breakdown of the score for each user or team.
- User and Follower Notifications to send out the latest score news to subscribed users and followers of your ScoreBook.
