I’m configuring my programs, and have a few questions. Is there an updated version of the guide that has information on how to set up your programs after installation?
- Is there an option for Grade entry? In our current setup (using old Evanced Summer Reader), we limit the Kids and Teens program by Grade since there is some overlap with ages and grade levels. The adult program is anyone age 18 and older (so someone could be eligible for both the Teen and Adult program if they were 18 and in 12th grade).
- How do I set up the different programs so that some track minutes, but others track books? Under Point Translations, I only see One minute, one point, without the ability to add anything else.
- Our current prize system for Kids awards different prizes for different levels of minutes read. I believe I can do this successfully with the Badges (or would triggers be more appropriate?). For Teens and Adults, for every book they read, they are eligible to receive a ticket to enter into the prize drawing of their choice. They actually visit the library and get paper slips to enter into different drawing boxes. Is there a way to accomplish this in GRA? Currently, I’m thinking they would earn a badge or prize for each book they read, and then we would redeem those prizes when they come in, but that seems messy. To give an idea of scale, we handed out about 7,000 drawing slips between our Adult and Teen programs. I would much rather handle this entirely in the software, with the ability to choose where their prize entries go, but I’m assuming that would be a feature request.
