Achievements recognize users' reading progress and motivate them to hit even higher reading goals with global congratulatory badges that pop up as a surprise reward for certain reading actions.
Readers earn achievements when they hit major reading milestones, like logging their first book, completing their first challenge, adding their tenth friend, or maintaining a lengthy reading streak, as well as when they read on special days or holidays. Achievements are not connected to challenges, and instead are tied solely to a reader's actions. The central Beanstack team determines what earns an achievement, and their availability is a surprise, like an Easter egg in a video game. The more days users enter their reading, the higher their chances are of garnering achievements!
On the web, readers can navigate to All Badges and then Achievements to see their achievements and the date on which they were earned. Clicking an achievement provides further details.
Achievements appear on the mobile app within a reader's Log, under the Achievements tab. Readers can click the achievement images to see their details.
Recently earned achievements are also visible to a reader's friends via their friend card, as long as their site has enabled the friends feature. Approved friends can see each others' last four earned achievements.
Achievements are active on all sites by default. If you want to remove achievements from your site, follow these steps. Keep in mind that any previously earned achievements will always be visible to readers, even if achievements are disabled and they are unable to earn new ones.
