I have attached a document, Jive Cloud Community User Documentation, that details how one accrues status points on Collaboration for Development and how to perform other useful tasks. I realize that the interface of this platform may take awhile to get used to, so I hope this document may be of use!
In particular, I wanted to highlight the description on status points that is given in the document, as the system can be somewhat confusing:
"The success of your community depends on your contributions, so you are rewarded with points for getting involved. Over time, you develop a reputation for reliability and authority in your favorite areas. The more people participate, the more information that is available for the community as a whole. You can become a top participant in your community by earning the most status points.
To find out how many points you have, do one of the following:
Hover over your name from any content item in the interface. In the pop-up profile card, you'll see your Current Points and Current Level status icon.
Go to a Latest Acclaim notification in your Inbox. Scroll down through the notification to see your points and how you rank in a list with other community users.
Note: The Top Participant widget shows your status points for your activity in that place only. Therefore, you may notice that your points vary from place to place in the Top Participant widget.
Because each community can be set up differently, you should ask your community administrator for details on status points. What activity is rewarded, status levels, and points awarded may vary. Depending on how your community is set up, you may earn points when you involve yourself in the following types of activity:
Post or respond to a discussion.
Correctly answer a discussion question.
Provide helpful information to a discussion questions.
Create new documents.
Create new blog posts.
Complete new tasks in a project.
Create a new status update.
When someone likes your status update.
When someone shares your status update.
Note: When content is deleted, status points are also deleted."
As always, please let myself or one of the other administrators know if you have any questions or suggestions!
