Scoreboard Ambassador Challenge Overview

Ambassador Challenges is an exclusive functionality for the customers who have the Scoreboard functionality enabled.

This is for those customers who:

  • Want to officially recognize Ambassadors in Anthology Encompass.
  • Want to add ambassador(s) to Fundraising Initiatives.
  • Provide access to the Ambassadors to create Challenges and share the Challenges to social networks.
  • Wants to display and see live updates within Scoreboards using progress indicators.

When the Ambassador Challenge module is added to the Content page, site visitors can see and scroll through the available Initiatives and participate in Challenges.

The overall Initiative will show progress towards the goal in a thumbnail image and a description.

Challenges associated with an initiative are visible under the Initiative card. To go to the next page of the challenges you can click Next at the lower left.


Ambassadors can be assigned to an Initiative and to Challenges to create their own Challenges.

Challenges can be created for Class year, Designation, Geography, Affiliation, Custom data point, or General Challenges.

Clicking on the Challenge Title displays two tabs, Challenge Details, and Ambassador Profile.

Ambassador Profile is visible only when an Ambassador creates a Challenge, otherwise, you can only see Challenge Details.

Challenge Details

  • The Challenge description.
  • A video, if a video was added during the challenge creation.
  • Progress towards the goal.
  • The ability to share on social media.
  • A Donate button
  • A thumbnail image.


Clicking the donate button on a challenge takes you to the assigned parent form of the Initiative. Admins, Ambassadors, and site visitors can share the challenge on social media by clicking on the social media icons on the specific challenges.

Ambassador Profile

Under Ambassador Profile, you can see:

  • Ambassador's Name
  • Profile Picture
  • Class Year
  • Degree
  • Embedded Video
  • Bio

Remember, Ambassador’s name is only visible on the Scoreboard when an Ambassador creates their Challenges. You can see Ambassador’s name with a link. If Admin creates a Challenge, the Ambassador’s name is not visible.

When you click on the Ambassador's name on the Scoreboard, a pop-up window appears similar to the Challenge Title, where you can switch between Ambassador Profile and Challenge Details.


When Admin creates a Challenge and fills On Behalf of, the name gets displayed on the Ambassador Challenge Scoreboard as plain text, On Behalf of does not have any Profile link attached.


When Admin creates a Challenge and checks the To remain anonymous, no name gets displayed on the Ambassador Challenge Scoreboard.


In the Ambassador Challenges module, the Challenges are arranged based on creation time. The first created Challenge is at the top, followed by the Challenges created later. When a Challenge is ended, it will move down in the list.

When an Initiative is ended, the Initiative Scoreboard stops updating even after additional donations are made from any Challenges. The  Challenges will get updated on successful donations but not the overall Initiative. This is applicable irrespective of the Goal type selected.

Any gift that met the donation forms assigned to the Initiative will update the Initiative and Challenge trackers even if the gift is not made through the Ambassador Challenges module.

Participation Challenge Progress

When a donation is made, Ambassador(s) and donor(s) can see the progress of the Challenge.

In the Challenge progress, you can see:

  • Percentage of Funded
  • Number of Donors
  • Days Remaining (every 20 seconds the remaining time gets updated).
    • If the Challenge end date remains more than a day, the Remaining field is going to be displayed in days.
    • If the remaining end days are less than a day, the Remaining field is going to be displayed in hours or minutes.
    • When the Challenge ends, the Remaining field is going to be displayed as “Ended”.
  • Dollars Raised
  • Goal ($’s/Donors)
    • When the Goal is reached for a Challenge, you can see a Stamp as “Achieved” in green color.
