JOINING AND SWITCHING TEAMS

In order to participate in this challenge, you will need to be a part of a team. Join ANY of the pre-created teams. There is a maximum of 20 participants per team. Tell your friends what team you are in and invite them to join you.  Additional teams will be created when spots run out. You are allowed to change teams until the Challenge starts. Anyone who still hasn’t joined a team by the time the Challenge starts will be arbitrarily assigned to any team that still has open slots.

CONNECTING A DEVICE

Aside from being able to manually enter your steps in the mobile app or the website, you can also synchronize your steps from your personal tracking device to the app on your phone via Bluetooth. Go here for instructions.

SYNCING YOUR STEPS

Make sure you sync your steps each day of the challenge by opening the MoveSpring app or website. We strongly suggest syncing at least once a day! At minimum you need to sync every 3 days to make sure MoveSpring gets all your steps. Users will be responsible for making sure they sync regularly to get credit for totals.

Every week starting November 15, all users who have not synced consecutively for the previous 7 days will be moved to the General Participation team.

CONVERTING ACTIVITIES TO STEPS

You can follow these steps to convert non-stepping activities into step totals and directly input them into MoveSpring to increase your daily step counts.
