You just got an email or heard from a colleague about the new challenge going on this month, and this time its a team challenge. So, how can you be part of a team on your RideAmigos platform to compete?  There are two ways…creating your own team and inviting others, or joining an existing team.

Creating a Team

First you’ll need to access your challenges.  You can do this either by clicking Programs > Challenges in the menu bar, or if you have a leaderboard widget on your dashboard you can click View My Challenges.

Once you’re in the Challenges area, use the search box or the blue arrows beneath the challenges to navigate to the challenge you’re looking for. If the challenge requires you to join before participating, you will need to visit the Available tab to locate it.

Click the green ‘Create Team’ button to create a team.

Add in your team name and description and hit ‘Save Team’.  You will then see four buttons:

  • Copy Team URL – this is how you’ll invite folks to join your team…simply send them the link!
  • View Team Stats – check out the impact your team is making as part of the challenge.
  • Edit – change the name or description of your team.
  • Delete – delete your team entirely.

As a team captain you can also click on the names of individuals who have joined your team to review and remove them.

Joining a Team

To join a team you’ll need a join link sent to you by a team creator.  Once you’ve received that join link, simply click and you will be directed to your RideAmigos platform and presented with a green join button.  If you are not logged in, clicking the join button will prompt you to either log-in or register (if you are not yet registered).

Once complete, you will be immediately joined to the team and can view the team’s information, contact the team captain, and share the join link with others.
