Leaderboard widget

The Leaderboard widget allows admins to add a scaled down version of the Leaderboard (accessed via the sidebar) to pages in Fuse. The widget displays a list of users ranked by the number of points they have been awarded in Fuse. Users receive points by carrying out actions, such as posting and engaging with content. By default, 1 point is awarded per action, however, point allocation can be adjusted by the admin on the Leaderboard (Admin) admin screen in the Admin dashboard. You might use this widget if you find that competition drives user engagement in Fuse.

The Leaderboard widget can be added to the Default homepage, Audience Specific Homepage, Default Manager Dashboard, Manager Specific Dashboard, and Community specific pages. 

By default, the Leaderboard widget displays a maximum of 10 users. However, if you have chosen to apply the standard overrides, only 6 users are displayed. 

It is possible to filter the leaderboard to only show users from a specific community. However, the points displayed next to each user are generated from across the company instance and are not specific to the filtered community.
