  1. Last week
  2. Off Topic

    I was ecstatic to find this in the marketplace. I came from using WoltLab and the community bot plugin which does similar functions as automation rules does. This is like the "Swiss Army Knife" for IPS. Granted there is a learning curve, but once you start to work with it - it is awesome to use.

  4. Glad you got that resolved. I was also going to mention, that only points that are "unbanked", i.e. in the spending account can be used to make purchases. And that pseudo account cannot go below zero, just like money in a wallet.
  5. After some more browsing, my error might have been due to this bug. I applied the suggested template change and was able to enter a whole number into conversion rate. Unfortunately, the "debited balance" error I was getting at checkout has been replaced with the even more vague error "We are unable to process your purchase. Please contact us for assistance." Edit: and I finally got it to work. I deleted everything and started over. Not even sure what I did differently, but maybe in my attempts to troubleshoot what was actually the decimal issue the first time I messed something else up.
  6. I feel stupid for asking this, but I think I lack a basic understanding of how this plugin works and can't figure it out. The instructions that came with the plugin were very basic "how to install an application" type of instructions and didn't explain any of this. I want to set up what I thought was a simplistic points system. All I want to do is let members buy virtual products from my store for reward points that I manually give them. I'm not mixing this with any real currency transactions, and I don't want to involve real money at all. Here's how I set it up: I installed both the points economy and the rules In manage currencies, I set up my points. I entered names for these. Currency decimal places is 0. Points exchange rate is 1 (I assumed this meant 1=1 USD) In Commerce settings, added the points as a payment method. Very confused about the conversion rate as I can only enter a long decimal string and I don't know what that means. In manage balances I manually give my test account a balance of points it can spend. There's nothing it does on the forum that needs to trigger this. I'm not sure if a bank is required for this, but I tried both with and without and got the same errors. When I set up a bank, I selected my points, left fees and interest cycle at 7 (I don't want any extra fees or interest), minimum balance 0, no maximum balance, 0 days transfer hold, 0% interest rate. When I set up the bank, I also gave my test account a bank balance. I set up a product in Commerce, entered a price, selected the points as a valid payment method Here's what happens: I log into my test user. I go into "My Economy Dashboard" and see that I have a balance in both my points and bank that is enough to pay for my virtual product. I put the product in my cart and go to checkout. I get an error that says: "The transaction would drop the debited balance below the minimum allowed amount." The only place I see to set a minimum balance is in the bank, and my minimum allowed amount is 0. Spending the points would not make that balance less than 0, and I even gave myself a lot more points so it wouldn't be close. Didn't matter. I thought maybe it's because I need to set up rules to make it work, but I looked a the list of events, actions and conditions and I'm completely lost. None of my experiments with the rules were helpful - I think I need a tutorial or step by step instructions and I can't find anything. Any help getting a system like this set up would be appreciated.
  7. Assign Points Every x Day

    Yeah I realized that right after I posted. Need to move my question over there.
  8. Assign Points Every x Day

    You would use a scheduled custom action in the rules acp.
  9. Is it possible/can someone clue me in to how I would assign points on an X daily basis? For example, every 30 days, or on the 1st of every month?
  10. I would like to give points for referreals to my members but I am not sure what settings to put for table, see the screenshot. I also have rules, maybe it is easier with that?
  11. Global transaction list

    You go in to Rules->Custom Logs and create a new log, I will just give you a screenshot of the settings I use. Nothing fancy with the log settings, just make sure the log is associated with IPS\Member and just include some clear name and description. Then you need to add the fields that will be included in the log. For me thats member sending, member receiving and amount of points. To do that you need to click the + sign to the right on the created log and click "Add loggable argument". That's it, your log is ready. Now you need to go and create the rule that is going to write to this log. Go to Rules -> Create new rule. Choose event to be "A balance or transfer exchange has been completed" and in action set it to Custom logs -> Create new log entry: The dialog that is on the Next screen will allow you to fill all necessary log fields. I have it like this: That's it! Happy logging. By the way, I use the same rule to also send notifications to the members that are receiving the points, just adding another action. Otherwise they will never know. Points economy is a very flexible app, but you need to pair it with Rules Automation to unleash its full power.
  12. Global transaction list

    This reading is a good start: I will post later what I have done on my board to track this.
  13. Global transaction list

    wow! Any ideas how to do this?
  14. Global transaction list

    With Rules you can setup it to write each transaction in to a custom log.
  15. Global transaction list

    It's a pity! Will there be an opportunity to implement this function in the next releases?
  16. Global transaction list

    No, you cant do that. Sorry.
  17. Global transaction list

    I told about list where I, for example, could sort out only list of all transfers user-to-user.
  18. Global transaction list

    in ACP there are transactions PER USER not cross-cutting...
  19. Global transaction list

    In the ACP.
  20. Global transaction list

    Hello! Is there any page or some kind of block where shown global transaction list? I mean all transactions for all users at on place.. Where it's possible to filter transactions, sort them, etc. Thanks!
  21. Fixing the IPS4 Number field decimals bug

    Like I just want a post for example to be rewarded with .25 of a point. Or my daily interest rate to be .50%
  22. Fixing the IPS4 Number field decimals bug

    This didn't seem to fix it for me I still can't set daily interest aside from 0 - 1 and in rules can't payout with a decimal either. IPS 4.2
  23. A problem with floats and Rules

    Right now I'm seeing an other problem. In the database my balance is 224.25000, but in the front/ACP I can see 224.00. When I'm incrementing this value with ACP, it increments the 224.00 value, not 224.25. For example, 224.25000 (it is value in database) + 0.75 (added using ACP) = 224.75000 (in database, in front/admin still shows as 224.00), not 225.00. Sorry that I said: , but earlier (before I changed currency on my board) it worked correctly.
  24. A problem with floats and Rules

    Did you try to give, for example 0.25 points using Rules? Is this working for you?
  25. A problem with floats and Rules

    There is no other problem that I am aware of.
  26. A problem with floats and Rules

    @Kevin Carwilethis topic just didn't help me.
  27. A problem with floats and Rules

    I dont quite understand what you are saying.
