Q: How do I add an activity to a challenge?

A: There are a couple different ways to add activities to challenges. You can manually enter activities directly into our tracking platform, or you can use an App to record activities, which are then automatically synced to our platform. 

No matter how you enter your activities, our platform will record the specific activity against your active challenges. For example, if you are in a ride challenge and log a run, the platform will not add it to the ride challenge. Our platform only adds activities to challenges that are active, and which meet the activity types set up in the challenge.

If you are in more than one challenge, you only need to add the activity ONCE. Challenge Hound will associate the activity to all applicable challenges.

To add an activity manually, simply click the Activities link at the top of our platform and then add new activity. Enter the name of the activity, the start date and time, select the activity type, and then fill in the duration, distance, and elevation (if applicable).


To add an activity with an app:

  • Connect the App on the main Apps page. This only needs to be done once.
  • Use the App functionality to record an activity. It varies based on the App, but most commonly requires you to hit start, perform the activity, then end.
  • Our platform will automatically sync the activity. You'll get an email confirmation with your challenge status update as soon as the activity has synced with our platform.
  • You'll be able to see the synced activity on the main Activities page.
  • Activities normally sync immediately, but can take up to 10 minutes to sync in some cases.
  • If you edit an activity in the App, the edits will also sync
  • If you delete an activity in the App, the delete will also sync
