Where do we get a pedometer? If you do not have your own pedometer, one FREE pedometer is available for each team member at 1090 James H. Zumberge Hall. If you are not located on the Allendale campus, contact us at email@example.com or call 331-2215 and we can send you one.
How do we track our team progress? Once the team captain has registered a team, each team member can access the online portal using their Novell username and password to log in. Participants select the "Today's Entry" tab on the portal to enter steps for the day.
How do I record non walking activities? An activity drop down is provided on the "Today's Entry" tab to track activities such as swimming or rollerblading. View the activity chart here.
When do I track my entries? It is highly recommended to enter your steps at the end of each day for accuracy. However, participants have the ability to track up to five days prior to the current date.
How does my team calculate our team goal (for Team Goal Challenge Participants Only)?
- Each team member determines how many steps they are going to walk each day of the challenge
- Add up each team member's individual daily step goal.
- Divide by 4 to get the average daily step goal for your team.
- Captains submit the information in the team set up process.
