How do I create a challenge on the new app?

You've got a group. Now it's time to launch a challenge, and add some rewards.

Updated over a week ago

On the new Count.It app, admins can create challenges for their group. To get started, click on the blue ➕ button on the bottom right of the group home screen. On the next screen, choose your desired challenge type.

The challenge type determines which activities will be tracked in your challenge. You may want to keep it simple and do a "Classic Steps" challenge — or you can broaden your challenge to include exercise, meditation, and more.

In every Count.It challenge, participants earn points for the activity that they log, and the more points they earn, the farther they move along a virtual path. The goal is to make it to the finish 🏁, though there can prizes for hitting milestones along the way as well. Once you select your challenge type, you will be prompted to set the difficulty of your challenge, or the "length" of your challenge path.

Move the slider right or left to increase or decrease the average daily points your participants need to earn to make it across the finish line. The scale (or difficulty) of the challenge is based on the global average of all users who have ever done that challenge type. For context, you can look at the example shown at the bottom of the screen showing a typical daily activity log that would be enough to finish the challenge.

Pro Tip: Completing a "1X" challenge means that participants must at least hit the global average for that challenge type to finish. Completing a "2X" challenge means that users must earn two times the global average to make it to the finish — a lot more difficult!

On the next screen, you can give your challenge a name, and set your start date and duration. You can also add a description. This is a good place to provide a simple overview of your challenge, and begin to get people excited!

Now it's time to add some goals and rewards! Next: For all the details on adding rewards, please see: How do I create goals and rewards for my challenge?
