How to set up Awards for a Reading Log Group
Awards are a great way to keep your readers on track and motivated to keep reading!
The awards given are at the “Group” level. The Groups are already equipped with preset awards that are easily customizable to fit each group’s specific needs.
Notes about Reading Log Groups:
Reading Log Programs are made to track reading without a specific goal or schedule. Awards are triggered based reading amounts that you can set. Your awards will trigger as often as you would like for the metric of any given reading group.
If you set your metrics to “minutes”, you can have an award set to trigger after “30 minutes read”, “60 minutes read” and so on.
If you have it set for books, it can be set to trigger after “2 books read” or any other number you select.
“Readers who log number of books”
When are reader logs their first book, they will receive an award
that says “Good job! You finished your first book!”

Adding your own images to awards:
The images work best if they are between 215 and 250 pixels as a square image. The file type PNG works best, but a JPEG works well also.
