Figure Eight tasks
Tasks are a great way to watch points add up. They are really easy to complete and don't ask you for your personal information. You're just given a set of instructions and when you complete them you get points. Please note that each user will have different tasks depending upon passed levels, badges, and their location.
Set up your Figure Eight dashboard
The first thing you want to do before trying a task is setting up your Figure Eight Dashboard. You'll have to sign up for an account but it doesn't take much time and is well worth it.
The Dashboard will keep track of tasks you complete, messages from Figure Eight and offer skills tests. Taking and passing skills tests and levels often lead to more and higher paying tasks.
Once your Dashboard is set-up it won't show much, go to the Figure Eight offer wall and try a few tasks. Not every task will be available that other members are completing. It will also take a while for your stats to show up on your Figure Eight Dashboard so be patient.
Why don't I have that task?
Certain tasks are targeted to members that have acquired a certain level. Completing more tasks and those of a different variety, along with a good accuracy percentage will start to help increase your level.
