How do you structure the course to ensure all students use the adopted digital product?

One of our schools here in Michigan is using MindTap for the first time this semester, for a large Intro Psych course. The lead instructor was curious to hear from experienced users as to how to ensure that all students in the course are actively engaging with the digital content/assignments in MindTap. Is there a threshold in the % of overall grade that is the tipping point for 100% participation? She needs to be able to show that the pass grades have improved with digital, and worries that assigning digital will be a problem if ALL students do not register. Thank you!

I have weekly assignments in Mindtap that are required and part of the grade. I use about 50% of Mindtap ancillaries in my classes and have had HUGE success!! I haven't had any issues with students not using Mindtap.
