Giveaway Participation Module

Introduction

Let your customers participate in raffles.

Typical Use Cases

Raffle participation, quizzes etc.

How to Use the Module

Add giveaway

Add a new giveaway and choose how often the consumer can participate. The frequency of participation can be once, daily, weekly (every seven days) or unlimited. Several prize pots can be set up in one giveaway participation module.

caution

Adding a giveaway is required. Users will not be able to participate without a giveaway present.

Dated giveaways

Giveaways can be active for a certain time frame. This can be helpfule if you e.g. run a giveaway for 3 months, but want to draw a winner inside each month. You can then add three giveaways, each to be active for one month only.

danger

Giveaways without date have precedence over dated giveaways. To use dated giveaways, all giveaways have to have a date associated.

Please check the time zone set for the competition!

note

You can use incomplete dates such as 12-04 instead of 2022-12-04 to have the giveaway be active every year on the 4th of December. This can be helpful if you copy an experience for the next year.

Sign in or email

This module requires the email address of the participant. Participations are saved in association with the email address.

You can use the email module or the sign in module to have the user's email available.

When using the module, customer data must be written to LoyJoy.

Please clarify this in advance with your data protection officer. This data is automatically deleted after 60 days. The winner should have been drawn and informed within this time.

Drawing participants

You can draw random participants under Drawn participations. To draw a participation, click on Draw participation. This will randomly select one of the participations - whose email has not been drawn yet - from the list of participations. All the participation data such as name, email, and the date of participation will be saved to the drawn participation.

note

Drawing a random participation does not necessarily represent a legally compliant drawing. Please consult your legal department for the legal requirements for your country.

Variables

When a participation occurs, the participation variable is created. This variable contains a timestamp (epoch milliseconds) of the participation. When a participation is not allowed, the variable participation_not_allowed with the value true is created.
