Missions: What are they?
Missions are used when the admin wants to make contents available in a logical and sequential way. This feature is an analogy for course, for example.
Using missions it is possible to direct contents to a determined audience or to everyone.
Through our reports you may find all the relevant information about the user's progress in a mission, for example: start date, conclusion, grades, time until conclusion, etc.
Progress checkmark are triggered as the user concludes the steps. In addition, it is possible to set a minimum percentage to pass in exams/activities and also to choose the number of retries and the time interval between them.
The contents that can be part of a mission are the most diverse: PDF, videos, SCORM, Applique courses, typeforms, exams, texts, activities linked to content, among others.

New features in missions
Everytime a user has an available mission, they need to enroll (click on Start) in the mission for the steps to become available:
If you choose a due date, the student will see a visual alert with the defined date. It's important to know that choosing this option will not block enrollment in the mission, even after the date.
- Free steps: Possibility of setting up a trail, allowing the user the experience to enter, see the order determined by the administrator, but navigate freely between steps:
- Sequential steps: In this format, to complete the trail, it is necessary to conclude the steps in a certain order, being mandatory to follow the sequence established by the administrator:
Controllers offer the possibility to lock part of the trail until a certain date, or for a period of time after enrolling in the mission in order to limit the user's access to the step:
There are three types of success criteria for a mission step:
- Access: Simply accessing the content marks it complete;
- Consumption: The user must consume at least 80% of the content for it to be marked as completed. This criterion is recommended for video and PDF content;
- Approval: If your step has an activity or an exam, you can define the success criterion based on the percentage of answers that the user gets right:
- Percentage 0% - The user does not need to reach a minimum percentage to pass the exam, but needs to finish the activities (all questions) to mark the progress in the step;
- Percentage greater than 1% - The user must pass the minimum percentage (that you configure) to mark the progress in the step;
- Configuration of the number of retries + configuration of the interval between retries: you can determine that, if the user does not reach the minimum percentage for approval, they can redo the activity X times or unlimited times.
In the image below:
- 'Exame 1' shows what the platform looks like when the step has been failed and has no retry;
- 'Exame 2, com retry' shows the behaviour of the platform when the retry is available;
- 'Exame 3' shows what the step looks like when the user passes with the established success criterion.
Mission with prerequisite
It is possible to determine that one mission should be a prerequisite for another. In this scenario, the dependent mission is displayed as follows on the page, with a small lock icon:
When you open the mission details page, the missions that are a prerequisite are displayed. As long as the prerequisite missions are not completed, it is not possible to make progress on the mission in question or even enroll in it.
Once the prerequisite missions are completed, it becomes possible to enroll or continue progressing on the mission.
