We have improved the phone number field to allow users to pick their country code using a dropdown. You no longer need to validate the field using regex, and we'll pre-select the country code based on the user's location.

We're thrilled to announce 2 powerful new Discord actions for your Competitions & Rewards: Discord Server Boost and Discord Server Role. These features unlock exciting possibilities for deeper community engagement and rewarding your most dedicated members.

Improved Share on LinkedIn Action

We've made the Share on LinkedIn action easier to set up in the admin interface. It is also more intuitive for contestants to share your campaign to their LinkedIn Feed.

The Share on LinkedIn feature is great for getting users to share about your Gleam campaign on LinkedIn. It could also be used for custom URLs, such as a new blog post, a new product line, or an upcoming event.

Users will need to write a post on their LinkedIn feed to share your link. You can provide instructions & examples to help them.

To get a feel for how it works, have a play with the demo below:

Add to Calendar Action

The Add to Calendar action is now available on the Pro plan and above for Competitions & Rewards.

This action allows you to create a calendar event which then prompts the user to save it to their preferred Calendar app. We support iCal, Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Microsoft Outlook Calendar, and Outlook on the web.

Here are some ideas on how to use Add to Calendar:

Boost Participation: Encourage users to save Competition deadlines and event reminders directly to their calendars with a single click. This increases the likelihood of them participating and staying engaged throughout the entire Competition lifecycle.

Streamline User Experience: Offer a seamless and convenient way for users to stay informed about critical dates and events straight from their own calendar. For example, the launch date of a sales campaign, or the closing date for submission.
