Setting a Start Date and Restarting a House Points Competition

Set the start date for your first House Points competition, or launch a new competition mid-year.

Only admin users can set a Competition Start Date.

Start Date Controls the House Points Dashboard

The Dashboard will only show points earned on or after the start date.

For example, you can set the start date as the first day of school to show points earned for the whole year, or the first day of a new quarter if you want to "restart" the games and only show points earned during the new quarter.

STEP 1

Go to House Points

STEP 2

Click Options

STEP 3/4

Update the Competition Start Date

Your House Points Dashboard will update in real-time once you change the start date!

A few other notes about start date:

  • Changing start date does not effect your data, only what's shown on the Dashboard.
  • You can switch the start date at anytime, but it updates the Dashboard for everyone in the school.
  • Start date also works if you set a past date.
