Challenges are fundamental to Crowdicity. A challenge can be a question that you would like your users to answer, a topic that you would like their opinions on, or pretty much anything that you'd like! Challenges are where ideas are posted in a Crowdicity community; all ideas are posted in response to a challenge.

  • Creating a new challenge

  • The challenge editor

Creating a new challenge

1. Go to Challenge Management in the Administrator menu.

2. Click CREATE A NEW CHALLENGE and enter a name for your challenge in the pop up window that appears.

3. You will be presented with a set of options for creating a challenge.

  • If you would like to create a new challenge, click Create challenge

  • If you would like to copy the setup from another challenge, click Clone a challenge (you can learn about copying challenges in our Cloning challenges help guide).

  • If you would like to use a template for your challenge, click any template to learn about it, and create the challenge from there. You can learn more about challenge templates in the Challenge templates help guide.

When you click Create challenge your challenge will be created and you will be taken to the challenge editor.


When you create a new challenge it will automatically be Published, but only visible to admins. In the challenge settings, you can add "Everyone" as a group at any time, to make the challenge visible to all users.

The challenge editor

The challenge editor allows you to edit your challenge so that you can tailor it to your community and your goals. When you open the challenge set-up page the first tab you will see is the Details tab, you go through the tabs to configure your challenge.

The table below lists each of these tabs with a brief outline of the purpose of each tab:




In this tab you can set your challenge branding and information - name, description, images and themes.

Challenge Type

You can switch your challenge between all three challenge types. If the type you select has a specific editor, such as a milestone or funnel challenge, that will appear here.


Depending on the challenge type, some extra settings may appear here - for example, voting in a funnel challenge is edited per phase, and so is set up on the challenge type tab. However for a standard challenge, voting is set challenge wide, and will be here on the settings tab.

You can also configure other settings including the submission form, challenge categories and default sorting.

The Challenges section of our help guides has more information on setting up the different options for your challenges.
