Yes. Our system is designed to allow users to easily register and create or join teams before the challenge start date.
We recommend your challenge website goes live 2-4 weeks or so before the challenge starts to allow you time to promote it and give people time to register to take part and create and join teams in advance so they can begin to add their distances as soon as the challenge begins.
We are here and happy to advise and help you through the set-up process.
You can try out our demo site at https://demo.bigteamchallenge.com/login using firstname.lastname@example.org as the email and password as the password. The same details can be used in our iOS and Android apps. The demo site refreshes every 24 hours so feel free to play around with adding distance.
Yes. Big Team Challenge includes an ‘updates’ feature which enables the administrators of the challenge to send out messages to all participants via the website, mobile apps and via email, keeping them informed of the general progress and any other issues they may want to raise.
The challenge administrators can choose to also send out push notifications to app users to further highlight the updates, with these messages being viewable from within the app. If you prefer to use your own email communication system, your Big Team Challenge admin website includes the option to export users to a csv file, including each user’s registered email address for importing into your third party systems.
When you set up your challenge you can choose to enable one leaderboard or all three, it's entirely up to you and what works best for your workplace challenge.
Teams: Total Distance
A list of all of your teams as well as their total distances.
Teams: Average Distance
This also displays all of your teams, but this time displays their average total based on the number of people on their team.
So a team of 3 can compete evenly against a team of 10.
Individuals: Total Distance
Instead of displaying all of the teams, this leaderboard shows all of the individual users from every team
We offer a wide selection of virtual routes out of the box which have been created to suit challenges of varying lengths and teams of varying sizes.
If you'd like to suggest a different route for your challenge please contact us and we can provide more information on what's possible.
