  • These points can be set in positive or in negative values depending on the user requirements.
  • A field for log template has also been added for the points which when points are given will update the points log in myCred and will display the log template message under reference in points log.
 
 
  • Another way to trigger this hook is to map the Custom WordPress User Meta via using User Meta Key in the Field Name/ID field in the hook.
 
 
  • Any custom field created via a third-party plugin or via custom development can be mapped with the hook to trigger the event and award points to the user.
  • User meta key of the field has to be provided in the Field Name/ID field in the hook settings to map the hook with the field and trigger the hook when the user birthday arrives.
 
 

TRIGGER POINT AWARDING MECHANISM ON SPECIFIC AGE:

  • To trigger the point awarding mechanism based on the age of the user the plugin has been integrated with functionalities in the hook to achieve this.
  • You can define points and specific age of the user in the hook settings for the respective purposes. The Add-on will automatically calculate and award points to the user when they reach the specified age given in the hook settings.
  • A log template field has also been added for the user to set the log template of the points according to their requirements.
  • This feature works with both Buddypress and Custom User meta.
