How do I set up weekly leaderboards that go on forever?

I can setup a Single-Player Competition with an intial date range of 1 week and then in Customizatons, set the Recurrence to 1 Week and select that it will start again each Sunday.

Note: the docs aren't very clear on this, so more details would be great.


Next, when I set "Ends On" or "Ends After", I cannot set the date to further than 1 year in the future or I get the message:

"Competition cannot start beyond one year from now."


So, how am I supposed to manage weekly boards?

In a year, do I need to create a new competition or can I extend the end date of the current competition?

Hi Mark,

GameOn Documentation makes it seem like you can enter "number of weeks" in lieu of a date for recurrences:
https://developer.amazon.com/docs/gameon/manage-competitions.html#create-a-series-of-competitions

Is there a chance you can enter in a number of weeks above 52 or does it still present the same error?
