User Created Challenges can be really helpful when you want a community to begin generating it's own challenges. For example, users who see issues every day that they would like to collect ideas for can create and run a challenge themselves without requiring an admin.

By default, the permission to create this challenges is not assigned. To assign it, proceed to the User Manager.

Assign the User Created Challenges permission to a user

If you want to assign the permission to just a few key people, this is a simple way to do so.

Just find the user, click the three dots to the right of their name and choose permissions. In the form that appears, choose "This user is allowed to create challenges"

Assign the User Created Challenges permission to several users

If you want to assign the permission to several users, you can select them with the checkboxes and then click the "Permissions" button at the top of the list. On the form that appears, choose the appropriate option for "User create challenge permission".

Assign the User Created Challenges permission to a group

Instead of assigning the permission to individual users, you may find it easier to give the permission to a group that you can then move people into and out of. The advantage of this option is that you can more easily organise users with this permission, as they will all be in one place.

Select a group from the list, and choose "Edit". Then select the "Allowed to create challenges" tickbox.

Editing User Challenges

As an admin, you have the option to edit any User Created Challenge. Hover over it and click "Edit".

When editing a challenge, you can also unpublish a challenge and prevent it from being republished by the owner.
