We have also added a display of the time range at the top of each of our leaderboards. Now, you can tell the time range that each of the leaderboards is displaying; for example, Top Kudoed Authors covers the last 30 days.
If you want to view stats for different time ranges, simply click the View All button on the leaderboard (as shown above). You’ll be able to select between multiple time ranges to see where you stand and what you need to accomplish to make it to #1!
As always, Meraki Community, we appreciate all that you do to help make our community top notch! Keep the feedback and suggestions coming by submitting them in the Community Tips & Tricks board.
