I have facilitated giving goodies by using a spreadsheet. This helps when you have a fairly small number to grant, like 20 or 30.

I have a column of the spark ids to whom I want to give a goodie.

I make a second column with a formula that concatenates the spark id with the URL that grants spark goodies, complete with the appropriate goodie code.

So, for example, if "PASTAFARIAN" is in cell A1, the Google Spreadsheet formula to grant them clapping hands is

=concatenate("http://www.sparkpeople.com/goodies_send.asp?id=",upper(A1),"&goodie=248&gid=1111")

and will create a link that looks like:

http://www.sparkpeople.com/goodies_send.asp?id=PASTAFARIAN&goodie=248&gid=1111

That way I can generate quickly a list of the links I need for awarding goodies, which speeds up the process a little.

Since I use goodies as "prizes" when people complete challenges, etc. I don't usually have an unwieldy number to grant.

Never, ever, EVER give up!

I gave up trying to distribute team sparkgoodies. Too time consuming. Instead, I just pick one person each month and give them a sparkgoodie worth all the points that the team has. Not particularly fair but better than not awarding them at all for lack of time.

I wonder if there is a developer that could help make this more efficient? Something along the lines of enter user 1, a comma and user 2, a comma and user 3, etc. This would save a tremendous amount of time for the team leaders to send spark goodies to several members at one time. My group has a lot of users, but only about 20 that have posted this year. If my group were as big as some, I imagine this would be a very daunting task and likely deemed not worthwhile so users could be missing out on goodies.

so if I have enough goodie points to give to 478 members - I have to type each of their usernames?

Hi,

The team SparkGoodies are given out individually just like they are if you were to give them to your friend--but they are from the Team. Because the teams limited in the number of Goodie Points (3000), some teams don't have enough points to give a SparkGoodie to every member.

To send a goodie to my team, must I manually enter every single team member's name?

That seems unbelievable, but, after a very long time, I still don't see any logical, simple way to gift all members at once.

Otherwise, are Team Goodies NOT structured to be sent to all members?

Thanks.
