First time visit

Set up your avatar and organisation

When you enter the tool for the first time you will need to set up an avatar and join an organisation.

1. Avatar

Go to your personal profile page. You can access this by clicking on the picture of a person in the top right hand corner of the screen or by selecting the grey picture of a person in the centre of your homescreen/dashboard.


In this page you will see options to provide information about yourself and your interests. It is up to you how much information you provide and also whether you wish to share this information as part of your avatar. 

Some challenges may also allow you to participate anonymously. You will need to decide when entering those challenges whether you would like others to be able to see your profile information or keep it private. 

You can select an image saved on your computer to upload for your avatar. You can also change this picture as many times as you want.

2. Organisations

Organisations are how you share your challenges and let other people participate in groups. Everyone within your organisation will be able to see any challenges that you post. 

If you would like people outside of your normal team to participate in your challenge you will need to invite them to your organisation. 

To participate in challenges you will need to join an organisation or create an organisation. An organisation can be large or small. You may wish to have several organisations - a larger organisation for anyone within your business or company to post challenges, and then other organisations that can be for your branch or team. 

You can access create an organisation either through the app header.
