I have set up a real-time leaderboard that is partitioned by day that I show in the game. Works great.
Now I'd like to give rewards at the end of the day so I set up 'Calculate daily' leaderboard that uses the same running total. Then, I created 3 achievements (repeatable) which are triggered by this leaderboard - each achievement has Trigger data set to New global rank, and filter value set from 1 to 3 (each achievement covers 1 of the top 3 ranks).
So with this setup in place, I thought the top 3 players would earn this achievement at the end of the day. Indeed that happens, however, the achievements are being awarded not only for the past day, but also for every previous day (i.e. each leaderboard partition and to players who didn't rank in top 3 in the past day). Ideally, I'd like to give out rewards only for the past day.
Is that possible? If so, what change do I need to make to my setup?
Note I have added this 'Calculate daily' leaderboard a few days after the real-time one. Should I reset the running-totals and start anew?
You appear to have your calculate-daily and weekly boards partitioned by day and week respectively. This isn't necessary as when a leaderboard is calculated a partition will be created for you.
I'd recommend going into your calculated leaderboards and removing their partitions. By having them here you're causing extra partitions that aren't required to be created. I believe these are what are causing the issue with your achievements.
I would also recommend dropping the current leaderboards/partitions and running totals to get a fresh start with the data.
Try this out and let me know if it resolves your issue.
Thank you, Vinnie. I will make the adjustments and report back soon.
So I tested the leaderboards over the weekend and unfortunately, it still does not work the way I need.
I dropped all the leaderboards and running totals on Friday. Here are the results:
