On Count.It you earn "Points" for being active. The platform converts data coming from fitness trackers into Count.It points for the following supported activities:
TIP: 100 points equals 10,000 steps. So, if you achieve a 100 point day, it's the same as hitting the "gold standard" of a 10,000 step day!
Which Activities Does My Group or Challenge Credit?
Groups on the Count.It BASIC plan automatically only report points for Steps and Cycling. Those in PRO Groups can turn on all of supported activities shown below.
Group admins can choose which activities to activate for their group via their PRO Admin > Group Profile page. All users can see what their group is currently tracking in the left hand navigation of the group homepage:
Other Ways to Earn Points!
Bonus Points: Admins of PRO groups can turn on Bonus Points along with the Count.It Manual Entry feature. This allows user to log activity for a wide range of activities that are not yet "auto-tracked."
Work Breaks via Slack App: Members of groups which launch the Count.It Slack App, can also earn Count.It points for taking short exercise breaks during the day. For full details on Slack "workbreak" logging, see here.
What Are "Steps Equivalent?"
At the top right of your group leaderboard, you will also notice that you can toggle your leaderboard metric between points and "steps" using this switch:
If your group is allowing users to get credit for more than just steps, then this measure is really "Steps Equivalent." That is, the leaderboard is converting all activity from points back into steps. It doesn't mean that each user has actually logged those steps walking and running, it just means that all of their activity would convert into that number of steps. This is just a helpful way for some people to understand their Count.It score.
