Add Points For Various Activities

Assuming that you have configured MyCRED to use the term “points”:

  • Go to Points->Hooks
  • On the left hand side of the screen you should see a number of SPMM related activities: Register, Profile, Account, Member Directory, Login, Connect Social Account, Disconnect Social Account.
  • Drag the activities for which you will award points to the right hand side of the screen
  • To set restrictions on each activity, click on the activity on the right hand side, update the fields and click the Save button.
