Follow the instructions below to setup a drawing using Beanstack:
- Login to your admin dashboard.
- Go to Set Up > Manage Drawings. Here you can view all of the drawings set up on your site and edit them as needed by clicking either the pencil icon or the bucket to delete a drawing.
- Select Create a Drawing.
- Enter the Following Information:
a. Name of drawing and short description. This description is only seen by administrators and staff.
b. Select appropriate branch, or choose all branches. Remember that if branch is not required for a program or registration, some people may not have entered that information and would therefore be left out of the drawing.
c. Raffle Type: Indicates how the reader will qualify for the raffle (i.e. # of books read)
d. Ages: Select the minimum and maximum ages. Note that the maximum age you are able to enter is 109.
e. Winner Type: Choose whether the winners are equal, or if there are 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place winners.
f. Number of Winners: How many winners overall should there be?
g. Weighted Raffle: Will each badge or unit read give the reader an additional entry? If so, the drawing is weighted (yes).
h. Start and End Date: During what period should the reading have been logged, activity completed, points earned, or badge earned? Note that if someone logs reading on August 1, but inputs a date of July 15, then the date "counted" would be July 15.
i. Select appropriate Program(s): In what program(s) should someone be enrolled? You may select more than one program by holding down the command or control key.
j. Minimum to Qualify: What is the minimum number of minutes/books/badges required to qualify (does not apply to all drawings).
- Select Create.
When you're ready to run your drawing, click on the name of the drawing you created.
To run the drawing, just click Determine Winner and the winner(s) will display on the page. You can also re-run or edit the drawing if necessary.
