Available: August 10, 2015

Four new challenges have been added to the ConXus Connections library: Better Bites, Relax and Revive, Sleep Smart, and Maintain—Don’t Gain. Challenges help participants motivate, encourage, and challenge each other to meet health goals and earn rewards.

Individual challenges may be run as corporate challenges, with a fixed start date and duration, or as personal challenges for participants to travel at their own pace.

Team challenges allow participants to form teams and work together to reach milestones. Individual and team progress charts, a league table, and blogs encourage healthy competition.

Client configuration options determine the start date, duration, and incentive points available for a challenge when it is deployed to a group. A customizable toolkit of promotional materials includes poster templates, mailers, and a how-to-guide for wellness coordinators.

Participants may track challenge progress manually within the Wellness Portal. For activity challenges, data may be autologged from a range of popular fitness devices. Devices supported include BodyMedia® FIT, Fitbit®, Fitbug Orb®, Garmin Vivifit®, Jawbone® UP™, and the Moves app.

Messages prompt participation and advancement in the challenge. As they reach each milestone, participants view health information, videos, and motivational tips to develop healthier habits.
