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.
Automatic syncing can 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 data 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.
Challenge updates are essential for an effective challenge by providing participants with event communications such
as new challenge notices, start, and end dates. In addition, updates can provide feedback on leaderboard standings.
To view challenge updates, a participant can click the associated Slack channel.
