    When two people invite the same person, who gets the points?

    Hello,

    Both users will get points. The system does not check if the user was already invited by someone else.

    Thank You

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to get a list of users who were invited by the invite widget. 

    Thank you,

    Hello there,

    Well, we are using Lotus Notes NOT outlook, can this be configured to use Lotus Notes and invite only Amadeus’s employees NOT outsiders?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Benjamin - We cannot configure it to work with Lotus Notes unfortunately.  This feature sends an email like any other service.

    Thanks Anthony, but I don’t understand, when you say it “sends an email like any other service.” Can you please be more specific? Because what I see is that, when I try to use it, it will try to open ‘outlook’ by default and it doesn’t go further unless I have and use outlook app.

    Cheers,

    Hey Benjamin - It sends a normal email via Outlook yes as that is the major of the email clients our customers use.  It is not accommodated in Lotus Notes as we have seen issues with it before.  Lotus Notes has higher security so I think the email would fail.  It should also work with Gmail, Yahoo, etc.

    Hey Benjamin - 

    Have you tried using an Text/HTML widget using "Mailto" hyperlink?  Will that work in your Lotus notes setup?

    Hi Anthony,

    I set this challenge as public, and allowed everyone to invite others. But when I used the link in the invitation email, I was still asked to register and after I created a screen name and password in the form, I was told not permitted to view that campaign.

    Did I do something wrong in the widget or webstorm setup?

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Hi Roc,

    It sounds like there is some type of restrictions on your challenge, e.g. group or domain. The challenge to be open to 'ALL' group and no domain restrictions for this widget to work.

    Thank you,

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for prompt reply. That makes much sense to me. I changed the setup to open to all groups, then the invited users could log into the challenge. But does that also mean, signup is necessary to view the challenge and submit ideas?

    Thank you

    Hi Roc,

    Yes, login is required to perform any action, e.g. submit idea/comment/votes. The user can only view the challenge without login if they go directly to the Challenge URL.

    Thank you,
