In this way, users will remain interested in your promotions and actively engaged during the whole campaign. You can use a single link to communicate all your planned promotions to your followers.

5. Single registration. If you enable this check-box, users will only need to write their registration details the first time they enter a promotion of the group. In they register in future promotions, they will not be required to fill in any additional information. Learn how the single registration works.

6. Global ranking. You can activate a global ranking that gathers the score obtained by all the users in all the promotions of the group that they have entered. Here we explain how the ranking works.
