Creating a new challenge on Count.It is simple — you can launch your group and a new challenge in just a few minutes. Really! For most new admins, the hardest part is not technical, but creative, i.e. thinking through some basics:
When do you want to run your challenge, and for how long? Will it be a recurring challenge program, or a one time event?
What kind of goals and rewards do you want to create? On Count.It you can create challenges for individuals, teams, and/or for your entire group.
Will you have teams? If so, do you want to create them, or allow your group members to form their own. Either is possible!
How will your promote the challenge? We have created a sample invitation email you can borrow from. A little up front cheerleading goes a long way toward getting people engaged!
Once you have a rough idea of the big picture, you're ready to pull the trigger. Below is the summary checklist for getting going:
STEP 1: SIGN UP FOR COUNT.IT PRO
Go to the Count.It Pricing page. Choose your desired plan and group size, and then click the blue "Get Started" (or "Checkout") button. Follow the prompts to move through the checkout process.
STEP 2: CONFIGURE YOUR PRO GROUP
As a PRO Admin, you now have access to the PRO Admin page, where you can create teams, set up challenges, get reports, turn on our Slack app, and much more. (Note: To add automated gift card rewards fulfilled by Count.It, you must add a credit card to your PRO account.)
STEP 3: INVITE EVERYONE!
Go to your Invitations page. You can invite everyone via our email form, or get a custom link which you can send from your own email. See here for sample copy you can use to announce the challenge internally.
