The scheduler

This documentation is for the WooRewards plugin

This PREMIUM add-on lets you schedule different actions on your points and rewards systems.

Summary

Installation and activation

First, you have to purchase the add-on. Since it’s a premium add-on, you can’t install it directly. Therefore, go to Woorewards Add-ons and purchase the add-on. Then, download the zip file (link in the order confirmation) and install it like a new plugin.

After the installation, go to MyRewards → System → License management and enter your license key (also received in the order confirmation). That’s it, you’re good to go.

 

Scheduled actions

Now that the add-on is active, it’s time to add your first scheduled action. Go to MyRewards → Scheduler. As a result, you’ll see a page with 2 different blocs, Scheduler and Settings.

Add a scheduled action

Click on the button Add a new loyalty system scheduled action to create a new scheduled action row.

  • Starts : Set the starting date of the scheduled action.
  • Ends : Set the ending date of the scheduled action.
  • Period : Define the running action frequency.
  • Name : Set the action’s name.
  • Loyalty system : Select the points and rewards system on which the action should be performed.
  • Action : Select the action to perform on the selected system.

The Information section will let you see the next Planned run and the Last Run.

Delete a scheduled action

To delete a scheduled action, simply click on the X right of the action. You will get a popup asking you Do you really want to delete this action?, click on OK.

Actions

Let’s see the different scheduled action you can use inside the add-on.

  • Turn ON a loyalty system : Enable a points and rewards system at a set date.
  • Turn OFF a loyalty system : Disable a points and rewards system at a set date.
  • Reset Points : Set the points to 0 for all users.
  • Reset Rewards and Levels : Remove rewards and levels for all users.
  • Reset Levels only : Remove levels for all users. It will let users unlock the levels again.
  • Check for Rewards : Unlocks the rewards for users.

Action priority

When you have several scheduled actions, it is important to know that the order matters.

Information

Action are triggered in the order of the list, from top to bottom.

To help you reorder the scheduled actions, you have 2 different ways :

Click the arrow button to move the scheduled action in the arrow direction

Click the ‘=’ button and move to the desired position

The “Check For Rewards” specific action

If you plan to set some periodic challenges for your customer, you may want them to get the maximum amount of points during a set period. And, after that period, give them the best possible reward they can get. The scheduler add-on will help you to do it.

When installing the scheduler add-on, it also adds a new option in the points and rewards systems. You will find that option in the Advanced Settings.

Checking this option will remove customer’s ability to manually redeem a reward for this system. Instead, only scheduler actions will unlock them (use the Check For Rewards action).

Warning

This option won’t work if the Automatic Rewards Redeem option is set to Off in your points and rewards system.

Weekly Challenge Example

 

Example

In a system, set a list of rewards for different points.

Set the Automatic Redeem Reward to the value Unlock Best Reward Only.

Check the option Cannot be unlocked by user and click on Save Changes

Then go to MyRewards → Scheduler and add 2 new scheduled action.

  • 1 : Unlock Prizes using the Check for Rewards action
  • 2 : Reset the customers points using the Reset Points action

Note again that the priority order is important. First you unlock prizes, then you reset the points.
