Getting Started

Make the most of Reaction's team building solution

1. Test Reaction

We recommend testing Reaction with a minimum of 5 users. Since Reaction is a team-building solution designed to foster stronger bonds, experiencing the platform’s interactive features may be challenging without a sufficient number of participants.

To invite users to your company, follow these steps:

  1. Login to the admin panel.
  2. Click on the dashboard.
  3. Locate the ‘Invite employees’ option and click on it.

Additionally, you can also invite users directly from the app by clicking on the ‘Invite members’ button.

2. Customize challenge duration

By default, Reaction runs a weekly challenge in which all invited members can participate. In the user app, each Sunday at midnight, the winners of the week and the top three improvers will be announced, and the challenge data will reset to kickstart a new challenge. Using the admin dashboard, you have the ability to review data for any duration, track weekly progress, and access historical information.

To customize the challenge duration:

  1. Login to the admin panel.
  2. In the Dashboard, click on ‘Edit step challenge’.
  3. Select your desired start date and duration for the challenge.

Once your challenge is set, you can invite users to ‘warm up’ and familiarize themselves with the app. On the challenge start date, their step data will reset, and the challenge will officially begin.

3. Create team competition

The default setup for Reaction’s step challenge is an individual competition, where users strive for the highest daily average. However, you can enhance engagement by incorporating team competition. Teams will compete for the highest daily average, and it’s not necessary for each team to have the same number of members. Here’s how to create teams:

  1. Login to the admin panel.
  2. Navigate to the settings tab and scroll down to the teams section.
  3. Click on ‘Add’ to create a new team.

Once teams are created, users will be prompted to select a team during their next login to the app.

4. Launch the challenge

To invite employees to the challenge, the process is the same as inviting them for the test. If you are using our premium version, please contact us to receive marketing materials such as emails, designs, and videos that will help to motivate and excite your team.

Share this video with your team alongside the invitation link/QR code to get them excited:

5. Add event

Events allow you to bring your team together for specific activities like a lunch break walk or sharing existing office events such as a Yoga class. By attending these events and sharing their experiences, employees earn points, boosting participation, and overall engagement, and transforming one-off activities into long-lasting engagement.

To create an event:

  1. Login to the admin panel.
  2. Click on the “Events” section.
  3. Select “Add Event” (similar to creating a calendar event).

6. Rewards

Rewards serve as the driving force behind engagement, as they incentivize positive interactions and encourage active participation in the challenge. Please note that rewards are not available in the free version. However, if you subscribe to one of our premium plans, the rewards budget is already factored in.

If you wish to further enhance engagement, you have the option to allocate an additional budget to the rewards. By doing so, the points required to achieve a reward will be reduced, making it more attainable for participants. To learn more about how points and rewards work, click here.

7. Track challenge progress

Using the admin dashboard, you have the ability to track the progress of your challenge, review the history of past challenges, and export relevant data.

8. Private groups

Reaction empowers each participant to create a personal support group and monitor the progress of selected colleagues. Unlike the ‘teams’ feature, which is managed by the admin and allows users to only join, private groups can be created by any user. These groups offer a fun way for close colleagues to motivate and support each other throughout the challenge. 

To create a private group:

  1. Open the Reaction Club app and navigate to the challenge section.
  2. Switch to the map view and click on the ‘Personal’ option.
  3. On the top right side of the screen, click the ‘+’ sign and select the users you would like to add.

9. Adding activity manually

Not all users may participate in the step challenge, which is why we offer the option to earn points by sharing other activities. While these activities won’t be converted into steps (as it would be unrealistic, such as with swimming), participants can still earn points by sharing their activities and inspiring others.

To manually add an activity, follow these steps within the Reaction Club app:

  1. Open the Reaction Club app.
  2. On the home screen, click on the ‘+’ button located at the bottom-right corner.
  3. Select the option to “Add Activity Manually.”

10. Connecting devices

The Reaction Club app seamlessly integrates with Google Fit and Apple Health, allowing wearable devices connected to these platforms to stream step data directly to the app – click to learn how. In our premium version, we also offer direct integration with devices like Fitbit, enabling you to connect them directly to the Reaction Club app. 

To integrate wearable devices:

  1. Open the Reaction Club app.
  2. Access the menu and select “Wearables.”
  3. Turn on the wearable device you would like to connect.
