Scrum masters are often tasked with introducing new processes beneficial to the organization. Change management in business environments can be challenging. The “Spotlight” feature in OnRewards helps scrum masters reinforce change management and can be used to influence developer behavior.
Spotlight allows recurring rewards to be set up to run every week or month and if the condition specified is met, then the awards are automatically posted. Below is the list of supported conditions. In addition to these, a generic JQL based event is provided for maximum flexibility.

Few examples of some mundane activities but can make profound impact are
Give points to all users who respond to issues within one hour.
“Time to First Response” < elapsed(“1h”) AND (created > startOfWeek(-7) and created <= startOfWeek(-1))
Give points to users who have updated their issues at the end of the week. Note that by default, the endOfWeek function considers Saturday to be the last day of the week. In this example, users who updated their issues two days before end of week will get points.
project = “XYZ” and updatedDate < endOfWeek(-2)
