Today I learned… (well, yesterday)
This addresses the #1 desired feature from our users, who are looking to check month-to-date points and/or previous month points. (Our gamification system relies on consecutive months of points earned; it was based on our previous platform).
Using that API operation, I was able to build a custom app that allows our users to look up their points between any two dates on demand. I work for a no code platform that makes it relatively easy to do that, but the same type of app could be built with other simple solutions, including Zapier.
Here’s the general App architecture:
- Request Form
- Email (easier to ask them for than their User Id)
- Date From
- Date To
- Behind the scenes API calls
- Presentation of points
- Our platform allows me to do that on the next screen, but…
- Other options, like email, could also work for simpler solutions
