Setup EasySocial Achievements

From JReviews Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

The JReviews integration with EasySocial includes out of the box support for EasySocial achievements based on JReviews actions. The first step to begin using this feature is to make sure you have enabled the EasySocial integration in the JReviews Configuration/Community Tab.

Types of Achievements

We've added code in JReviews that will process achievements for the following user activities:

  • Submitting a listing
  • Submitting the first review for a listing
  • Submitting a review
  • Submitting a review comment
  • Adding a listing to the favorites list
  • Uploading any type of media; or uploading a specific type of media (photo, video, attachment, audio)

For each of the above activity types, except for submitting the first review for a listing, we've added three tiers low, medium and high. This allows site admins to award a new badge after the new tier is achieved. For example, if you set the three tiers for submitting reviews at 5, 10 and 20 reviews. The user will earn a badge for each of those tiers.

Achievement Commands

EasySocial requires a rule to be setup for each type of achievement. Each rule requires a unique 'command'. The following commands are pre-defined in JReviews and these are the ones you can use when creating your EasySocial badge rule file. We'll get more in to that further below.


listing.add.low, listing.add.medium, listing.add.high


review.add.first, review.add.low, review.add.medium, review.add.high

Review Comments

review.discuss.low, review.discuss.medium, review.discuss.high


favorite.add.low, favorite.add.medium, favorite.add.high

Media (any type)

media.add.low, media.add.medium, media.add.high


photo.add.low, photo.add.medium, photo.add.high


video.add.low, video.add.medium, video.add.high


attachment.add.low, attachment.add.medium, attachment.add.high


audio.add.low, audio.add.medium, audio.add.high

Creating Achievement Rules

Here we'll refer you to the StackIdeas documentation for EasySocial where they have a page on Creating a Rule File for Badges

Below you'll also find an example multiple rule file for listing and review achievements. You only need to include the rules you need and make sure that you use the 'commands' that have already been included in JReviews from the above list.
