This would be a great feature.
+1 here too
Otherwise it seems that I have to create an entire new giveaway every month just to giveaway the same product every month, which takes time to setup again (while it could be automated, BIG time saver!) Example, "Win this shirt!" and then have it recurring every month (30 days).
There's nothing that prevents you from doing this now (with the exception of clearing out the points option). You can create a campaign and let it run continuously.
The tweak I think you're really asking for are:
1) be able to reset everyone's points to zero
2) let people earn points for sharing more than once *but restrict it to once per day*
Yes, being able to reset the points to zero would work for some use cases. However, the points work for BOTH the rewards AND the giveaway. I wouldn't want to reset the rewards, just the giveaway.
@steve adams - there is only 1 set of points in upViral. There aren't different counters for rewards and sharing or the 'giveaway' -- just one set of points.
@CJ - well, maybe I wasn't clear. Right now, upViral only gives a user points for sharing ONCE per social account per user. So in an on-going campaign, they would never earn points for sharing the second month or what ever the period is.
Resetting the total points would not reset their ability to gain points for sharing.
P.S. I would NOT want the system to automatically reset points because that scares the crap out of me LOL. It would have to be a manual thing in my opinion.
@Mitch - I realise that, and thats my point (excuse the pun). If I want to, for example, reward people by giving them discount coupons, I would want their status to continue to build up, month over month - e.g. earn 100 points and get a 10% coupon, earn 500 and get a 20% coupon etc. Whereas, as we are talking about recurring giveaways, I would want to reset, each month (or chosen period) how many entries they get in the sweepstake OF THAT GIVEN period. The fact that they are one in the same at the moment, would prevent me from taking this approach.
(FYI for my use case - to prevent them from not making an immediate purchase, I will provide a credit for vouchers earned after booking but before booked "event" takes place (this is not for an online retail product - its for training courses). People can earn multiple discount coupons.)
