Step 1: Do you have a fitness tracking app installed?
To take full advantage of Count.It, you're going to want a fitness tracking app, i.e. Fitbit, Apple Health, Google Fit, Garmin, Strava, etc. already installed on your phone. If you already have a supported fitness tracking app installed, proceed to Step 2 to join Count.It and your group!
If you are NOT already using a fitness tracker on your phone, it makes sense to get that set up first.
If you have an Android phone, but no tracker yet, we recommend using Google Fit, which already comes installed with most Android smartphones. Click the Google Fit app on your phone to get started. (You can download Google Fit from the Google Play store here.)
If you have an iPhone, or Apple Watch, and plan to use the built in Apple Health app for tracking, you're all set to join!
Step 2: Join Count.It!
You can sign up for Count.It on the web or via the Count.It app on either iOS or Android. Most new users join a group that already exists and most likely, when you were invited to join your group, your Admin provided you a custom invitation link.
If you click the custom invite link, you'll begin the "onboarding" on the web, and you will automatically be added to that group.
If you don't have an invitation link, not to worry, you will be prompted to search for your group by name as part of the "onboarding" process.
Join via the Web:
If using your group's custom invite link, you will need to sign up via the web to automatically be added to your group.
Once you've created your account, you'll be asked to find or create your group:
Join via the Count.It App:
Important Note: If using your group's custom invite link, you will need to sign up via the web to automatically be added to your group. . If you chose to sign up using the app, simply create your account and then use the "Find Your Group" function when prompted and search by name to join your group.
Step 3: Connect a Fitness Tracker
Whether you sign up via the Count.It app or on the web, you'll be prompted to connect your fitness tracker. Here's how it looks on the web!
Assuming you already have an app installed on your phone, simple click the "Yeah, I've got one!" button and on the following "Connect Your Device" screen, simply click the connect button below your fitness tracker app brand. Not to worry, you can add more later if you like on your Settings --> Trackers page.
Step 4: Join your team!
If your group is subscribed as a PRO group and has created Teams that allow their members to join, you'll see a bright red alert appear when you land on your group homepage. You can click the link in that alert to go to your Settings --> Teams page. Once on that page, click the 'JOIN' button next to your team's name to join:
Here's how it looks on the app:
Please note: Some PRO group Admin choose to assign Teams for their members. If that is the case, you will not be prompted to join but will receive your Team assignment by your Admin once you are actively enrolled in the Group.
Nice work! You're done!
