Slack to ChallengeRunner Integration

Simplify challenge communications and maximize participant engagement by enabling Slack integration

Simplify Communications
The ChallengeRunner platform already allows administrators to build wellness challenges based on virtually any metric. By integrating with Slack, inter-challenge communications becomes much simpler by leveraging the excellent Slack platform

Maximize Participation
With ChallengeRunner, participants could always interact with their wellness challenges using the website or smartphone apps. With Slack, participants can access their challenges using the same tool they use all day without switching context

Normally, the challenge enrollment flow for participants can be difficult. The admin must create an invitation link and then somehow send the link to allow participants to join the challenge. Provided that the participants receive the invitation, those interested must perform some operations to navigate to the enrollment form so that they can create an account.

With Slack integration, potential participants only need to click the ChallengeRunner tab and they can enroll in a challenge, authorize trackers, and join a team if available.

Challenge Interaction

Automatic syncing can automatically transfer fitness data from the most popular fitness trackers which minimizes the need to need to manually enter data. However, this only works with activities that trackers can collect leaving out many aspects of wellness such as nutrition, water consumption, mental fitness, etc. For those activities, data must be manually entered by the user using the ChallengeRunner website or smartphone apps.

By integrating with Slack, participants can directly interact with the challenge without switching context from the communication platform that they use all day.

To use ChallengeRunner inside of the Slack platform, you will need both a Slack account as well as a Commercial or Enterprise ChallengeRunner account.
Once you have a ChallengeRunner account, log in using your admin credentials to integrate ChallengeRunner with Slack
