02110 – How to setup a Leaderboard Block

This block will be displaying the top 10 members who have the most points.

When your members access your membership site and you are rewarding them with points through the Gamification center. They will earn points based on the actions and as they get more points, they will be ranked and will be displayed in the leader board block.

Leaderboard Blocks can be added to your Membership Site, Portal Pages, Course pages, Social Wall pages, and Private Chat pages.
