In our never-ending quest to change the way sales teams can have fun in the office, we’re proud to release our newest “Roll the Dice” competition. This competition allows you to roll dice for a chance to multiply your report value inside the competition.
For instance, if I report a $1,000 sale but roll a 12, I get triple the score.. or $3,000 as the value inside the competition itself. Now, you may be asking yourself “*why would you do that?!?!*” Well, the answer is that we wanted to make more competitions that involve randomness and chance, like our highly popular “Lottery” competition.
Regular sales contests are fine, but with those normal linear contests you always have the same winners. With contests that involve randomness and chance, like our “Roll the Dice” competition, it brings a whole lot more fun and excitement as the playing field becomes more even and anyone has a chance to win. So, get this one up and running, add a report, and start finding out whether you’re as lucky as you are good!

How to create a 'Roll the dice' competition
Company requirements: Gamification
Required user privileges: Company admin / Competition admin
Step 1 - Competition Type
In the competition create wizard, click on Roll the dice.
Step 2 - Layout
In the second step of the wizard, you'll be asked to pick a layout for the competition. A layout is the theme of the competition as it's displayed on the TV-monitors. However, in the Roll a dice competition there is only one layout to choose.
Step 3 - Participants
In the third step of the wizard, you'll choose the type of participants. You can decide if Users should compete against one another, or if Teams should - or even Companies, if the SalesScreen subscription consists of a multiple-company structure.
You can also even create Custom Teams that will only exist in the context of the competition. This is easier understood through an example; if John is on Team-A and Beatrice is on Team-B, you can set up a competition where John and Beatrice are placed on the same team (e.g., Team-Awesome). Team-Awesome will exist as long as the competition is running, where team members are working towards a commong goal set by the bounds of the competition.
Pick the participants of the competition.
- Participant Type is User
Select participants from users across all teams. This enables you to set up a competition between all users in the company, or between a specific subset of users.
- Participant Type is Team
Select participating teams from the company. You can choose all teams or a subset of teams.
- Participant Type is Company
Select participating companies from the list of companies on the left.

If you e.g. set Triple on 12 (6 + 6) and you roll two dice, both 6, you will triple your report value. If your original report value was 100, you will receive a bonus of 200 which makes a total of 300.
