What Does it Mean to Share a Competition?

When you share a competition to an external service, like Slack or Microsoft Teams, SalesScreen will push the current status of the competition to the selected channel in the form of a message. The message includes the following information:

Basic Competition Info

The competition name and description, including a link that takes users into the SalesScreen competition dashboard.

Duration

The start and end date of the competition, as well as the current time progression.

Personal message [OPTIONAL]

The person who shares the competition can choose to include a personal message.

Prizes [OPTIONAL]

If any competition prizes have been set for the competition, they will be listed in the message.

Current Standings [OPTIONAL]

You can choose to include the current top X standings of the competition.

Guide

The following steps explain how to share a competition to Slack.



Step 1

In SalesScreen, navigate to the Competitions dashboard.

Step 2

Find the competition you want to share and click on its cogwheel. Select Share from the context menu.

Step 3

Choose an external service, in this case, Slack, by clicking on its card.

Finally, choose a Slack channel to share the competition status to. Provide a personal message and/or current top x standings list in the post if you want to.

When ready, click Share.

The resulting competition status should be posted to the selected channel within seconds. In this example, the resulting Slack post looks like this:
