Learn how to add teams to your challenge and set up team goals and rewards

Updated over a week ago


Any Count.It challenge can include teams. On Count.It, group admins create teams, and challenge participants add themselves to those teams. Just like individuals, teams are displayed on the challenge path. While individuals have circular avatars, teams are represented by hexagons with a single team initial.

As a team's members accumulate points, their team progresses from the challenge start toward the finish.

Team Score

A team's score in a challenge is equal to the average of the scores of its members. Another way to say it: A team performs like the average of all its members.

Teams scores are updated dynamically any time any team member syncs new activity data.

Team Profile

Users can tap on a team icon to see the team stats as well as an "internal" leaderboard of its members—and each member's contribution to the team score.

(NB: Being on a team does not prevent a user from also showing up on their own on the challenge page.)

Creating Teams

Admins can add teams to a challenge when they create a challenge, or any time thereafter. On the create/edit challenge screen, simply tap the "Add" link in the teams section.

On the "Add Team" screen, add the team's name, and hit the "Save" button to add the team.

Create Team Goals & Rewards

Admins create team goals and rewards just as they goals and rewards for individuals or the group as a whole.

Joining Teams

Any challenge participant can join any team via the Challenge Info screen.
