Raffles allow your students another opportunity to use their points. Raffles can be schoolwide (School Raffles) or offered by an individual (My Raffles). Raffles can be effective for a limited budget, an assembly, or to use the remainder of a student’s points.
Why is this important?
Store/Event Admin users can create schoolwide raffles. Creating raffles (or drawings) with an automatic entry is limited to those with Store/Event Admin privileges. All users can create a raffle for students in their groups using “My Raffles.”
How do I do this?
From the left-side Main Menu, choose “Raffles.”
- A user with Redeem Admin permission will be able to see a “School Raffles” option.
- All users will have a “My Raffles” edit button.
Select the green “Add New Raffle” button to create a new raffle.
Establish raffle details and select save.
After you have created a raffle, you can select the Edit Prizes button to add prizes that are available for that raffle.
There are two types of raffles that can be created:
- Redeem – Students will spend points to enter the raffle. The more points the student spends to enter, the better chance they have of winning.
- Qualify – These raffles do not cost the students any points to enter but they must have earned a certain amount of points in the grading period or for the year. If the student qualifies then they will have one entry in the raffle.
Change the Name “Raffles” to “Drawings”
If you would prefer to have the raffles named “drawings,” you can change that in the School Information sections of “Settings.” Select “Settings” and “School Information” will be the information displayed. Select “Drawings” from the “Raffle Name” drop-down and then save the change.
