Use Member group eligibility to specify members who can or cannot participate in a Competition. The default is ALL members are eligible to participate, as shown in the screenshot above.

Member groups are NOT pre created

To select other groups to be eligible to participate in a Competition, you can easily create Member Groups. Your creation options are:

Option Nr. 1

In the CompetitionLabs console, navigate to Members → Members List, where pre-created members can be updated with member groups via CSV file upload (you can read about Member update or creation from CSV file upload here)

Or manually editing each member and adding a new group. After the step is completed then in Competition creation → Step 2: Entrants in “Member group eligibility” field – once you start typing a suggestion of groups available to you will appear.

Option Nr. 2

Add a new group in Competition creation → Step 2: Entrants in the Member group eligibility field. When you start typing, a list of suggested groups available in the Competition will appear. Add the new group with a rule of or .

After creating the Competition and new member groups, you can now add members by navigating to Members → Members List. Existing members can be updated with member groups via CSV file upload (you can read about Member update or creation from CSV file upload here) or manually editing each member and adding a new group.

Member groups ARE pre created

If you updated the members with groups then in the

Competition creation → Step 2: Entrants in “Member group eligibility” Once you start typing a suggestion of groups available to you will appear. You can select a or a  rule for each group here.

Member group eligibility guide 

   MUST
The default ‘ALL’ has a  rule, which means that all members can participate. Other groups with a rule mean that all members that can participate have to be in the group or groups.

 

OBJECTIVE: Only members in Test groups1 and 2 can participate in the Competition. Members in only one of these two groups cannot participate.

 

SITUATION: Three members in different member groups:

Member_1 (groups:  “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_2”)

Member_2 (groups:  “Test_group_1”)

Member_3 (groups:   “Test_group_2”)

 

OUTCOME: Only Member 1 can participate in the competition because Members 2 and 3 do not meet the requirement of the rule, that participants must be in Test Groups 1 and 2.

   SHOULD
Adding a  rule group makes the Should match at least 1 field appear, where you can insert the number of groups in which a member should be, in order to be eligible to participate in the Competition.

 

OBJECTIVE: Only members in Test groups 1, 2 and 3 can participate in the Competition. As the value of Should match at least 1 has been set to 2, members in any two of the three groups can participate in the Competition.

 

SITUATION: Four members registered in different groups:

Member_1 (groups:  “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_2”, “Test_group_3”)

Member_2 (groups:  “Test_group_1”)

Member_3 (groups:   “Test_group_2”)

Member_4 (groups:  “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_3”)

 

OUTCOMEOnly Members 1 and 4 can participate in the Competition, as the others do not meet the rule of being in two groups.

   MUST-NOT
Use this rule when you do not want specific member groups to participate in a Competition.

 

OBJECTIVE: Members registered in Test group1 cannot participate.

 

SITUATION: Three members in different member groups:

Member_1 (groups:  “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_2”)

Member_2 (groups:  “Test_group_1”)

Member_3 (groups:   “Test_group_2”)

 

OUTCOMEOnly Member 3 can participate in the Competition, as Members 2 and 3 are in Test group 1..

Member group eligibility example with all the rules of “must“, “should” and “must-not” implemented.

OBJECTIVE: 

To create a Competition with member group eligibility rules that include – 1 , 3  and 1 . Seven members in pre-defined member groups will participate in the Competition. The results are as followed.

SITUATION:

Member creation and grouping – in the screenshot below, we created seven members in different member groups.

Member_1 : “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_2”, “Test_group_3”

Member_2 : “Test_group_1”

Member_3 : “Test_group_2”, “Test_group_3”

Member_4 : “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_2”, “Test_group_3”, “Test_group_4”, “Test_group_5”

Member_5 : “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_3”, “Test_group_4”

Member_6 : “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_2”, “Test_group_4”, “Test_group_5”

Member_7 : “Test_group_1”, “Test_group_2”, “Test_group_3”, “Test_group_4”

We have five member groups in a Competition, that can or cannot participate in it, according to the and  rules:

OUTCOME:

The rules define that participants must be members of a group, at least 2 out of 3 groups, and not in a group. Only three of the seven members meet these criteria and are eligible to participate, i.e. Members 1, 5 and 7.:

Member_2 No Is NOT eligible because this member is only in one  “Test_group_1” group and the rules define that the member has to have one  group and at least 2  groups which this member does not have the 2  groups.
