FAQs

Answer
Are Groups public or private?

The Group Owner (typically, the user who created the group) can decide if the Group is Public or Private. Public Groups display information about the group, such as Group Membership and mileage, to the general public. With private groups, this information will only be available to members of the group.

Can anyone join my group? How do I create a "closed" group for just my friends and family?

Public groups are open for anyone to join. Private groups require permission from the Group Owner.

Can I log miles I've completed in the past?

All activities completed after Jan. 1 can be entered into your activity log. However, only miles completed in the current calendar year will count toward this year's challenge. When logging your activity, you can select a past date to log activities you've previously completed.

Can I use other applications or websites to log miles with the LiveWell Challenge?

Currently, miles for the LiveWell Challenge can only be logged at LiveWellChallenge.com. If you are using other applications or website to log files you can export your activity log as a .csv file, which can be opened and imported into other applications that accept .csv import.

Can other users see my progress? Can I see how my friends' progress?

By default, everyone’s progress is kept private. If you’d like to share your progress or see how your family and friends are doing, create a group. Each group will have a leader board displaying group participant’s mileage and total mileage for the group. Each group participant will be able to view this leader board.
