How to start playing GetBadges - create a new game

 

You can create as many project as you want and assign to them  your teammates. Or, if you don’t feel like managing people, GetBadges can assign people automagically.

Invite as many people as you can, so the game will get more interesting. Autoinvitations will help you with this task and they are enabled in your new game by default.

GetBadges creates a game based on your project data using integrations called webhooks. Webhooks are notifications that we get every time you are active in any of your tools. The setup is fast and simple, we created a step by step walkthrough for each and every one of them. After you configure them, your tool is ready to work with GetBadges. To get most out of GetBadges be sure to integrate at least one build, one code repository and one issue tracker to each project!

You can read more about integrations here: Why does Getbadges need integrations?

After adding your tools, the game begins 🙂 On start, you have a defined set of badges, depends on type of your added tools. For example, if you want to use JIRA from Atlassian, you can see available badges dedicated for JIRA here. You can define an own badges in special badges creator.

Achievements for passcodes are also available, as explained in this article: How to reward custom activity? It’s useful when you want to award somebody for activity outside of his normal work routine.

And the important note: GetBadges recognizes users by their emails, so your teammates should add all of them on special page if they need:

Setup your email adresses

 

If GetBadges finds an email that isn’t recognized it will create an NPC (Non-Player Character) with a randomized name. If you didn’t disable autoinvitations this email will also get an invitation to join your game, so the word gets spread and you’ll have all active developers at your company playing with you.
