Background: Fantasy Sales Competitions

With Ambition, you can organize employees into teams where they can compete week-to-week across a regular season with the top teams entering a playoff. It's a popular aspect of our gamification offering, effectively Fantasy Football for sales people.

Example: Benching.

How to View Benched Reps in Fantasy Matchups

Benching serves an important purpose during Fantasy Contests: it prevents out-of-office reps from hurting their team's score due to non-existent activity numbers.
