How do people make daily systems?

Well I always wondered how developers make daily systems like daily rewards


You can use datastores to log when a player claims their reward and then compare that time to the next time the player logs in to see if they qualify for for the daily reward. Example:

local DataStoreService = game:GetService("DataStoreService")
local ReplicatedStorage = game:GetService("ReplicatedStorage")

local DailyRewardRemote = ReplicatedStorage.RemoteEvent
local DailyRewardDataStore = DataStoreService:GetDataStore("DailyRewardDataStore")

DailyRewardRemote.OnServerEvent:Connect(function(player) -- example remote call 
	local Time = DailyRewardDataStore:GetAsync(player.UserId) -- gets last write to the datastore
	if not Time or (os.time() - Time) > 86400 then -- checks if the last time the player got their reward has been over 24 hours
		-- grant reward here
		DailyRewardDataStore:SetAsync(player.UserId, os.time()) -- writes new time of daily reward claim
		-- do not grant reward here

Please note that the script above is just an example of how a daily reward system would work and if you plan on using it for a game then remember to add datastore failure mitigation.


thank you :slight_smile: perfect explanation

Thank you for this daily reward script, Iā€™m dying searching for this
