What are ProgressAlly Events and How Do They Work?

AccessAlly Pro (formerly ProgressAlly) includes a unique “Events” feature that allows you to create powerful automations inside your membership site.

For example, you can tag a user when they log into the site, view a certain page, or complete specific objectives.

This can open up even more opportunity for you to make your website ultra-personal for the user.

Please watch the video tutorial on this page to learn how to set it up:

Using “Events” to Apply a Tag in the CRM

You can also use ProgressAlly Events to apply a tag (or multiple tags) in the CRM.

Apply a tag

This can be useful if you want to apply a tag when someone finishes a video or a module, or if you have an objective for them to complete a quiz or download a file.

Using “Events” to Check Off Objectives

Sometimes you might want to check off an objective on another page (or on the same page) based on a certain set of objectives being completed.

One use case might be to have someone submit 3 Private Notes, and having an objective that says “Submitted all homework” automatically checked off.

Here’s how you’d set something like this up in ProgressAlly Events:

Checking off objectives automatically

If you need to add an objective for each Private Note, but you don’t want them to show them on the page itself – you can use the shortcode adder to display only a sub-set of the objectives (called partial objectives).

Show only specific objectives

So in a sense, you’ve got more objectives that are being used in the Events area but they don’t need to be shown on the front end to the students.

Of course, there’s a lot of flexibility built into both Objectives and Events. You decide what you’re trying to accomplish first, and then you can use these tools to make it happen.
