Can I take part in Activity Tracker walking challenges in a wheelchair?

Yes, you can either select to record your activity as 'self-propelled wheelchair' or 'walking' and add a distance travelled. We use that distance to calculate average steps.

Can we hide National campaigns and programmes from our A-Z?

Yes, admins can click on them and select 'hide'. They will still be visible to admins but 'highlighted' so you can select to 'unhide' them if you want. The public will not be bald to see anything that is hidden though.

How are challenge leaderboard averages calculated?

The averages on the Challenge Leaderboards are calculated by summing all of the values of "Active" members in a team and dividing it by the number of "Active" members in that team. "Pending" members are not included in the calculation. Please make sure all of your member approvals have been accepted that need to be accepted.

How are the points calculated in the activity tracker?

The points are calculated based on Metabolic Equivalents (METs), MET is the ratio of a person's working metabolic rate relative to their resting metabolic rate. One MET is defined as the energy cost of sitting quietly and is equivalent to a caloric consumption of 1kcal/kg/hour.

How can I add a new session on SportSuite Registers?

Sessions can be added one at a time, or for re-occurring sessions you can add them in bulk (if they follow a set pattern – i.e daily, monthly, every other month etc.) Name each individual session to easily distinguish between them and adding a single session at a time brings up a new line underneath the previous sessions.

When you select 'add multiple sessions' there are a few questions that need to be answered to generate the sessions.Once you have selected the 'repeats' then 'repeats every' drops down. For example to repeat everyday select '1' as shown. To repeat every other day for example then you would select '2'. Also, you can select how long the sessions repeats occur for. Once you click 'generate' then all the session will appear in the session list, so that you can name them. At this point if the dates are not quite right then they can be easily edited, or even deleted.
