Once upon a time, Spire members had a problem. “I’m excited to share my personal accomplishments and love getting encouragement, but I just don’t have any ideas for where to start. What should I post?” We heard your frustrated cries, and Challenges were born: a simple way for Team Captains to suggest specific actions for their team members to take on.
As we’ve grown, Challenges have continued to be a crowd favorite, so we’re taking them to the next level: Say “hello” to New Challenges!
Here’s what’s involved:
—New Score System: If your Captain chooses to enable our new scoring system, we’ll keep track of the top participants, automatically! At the end of each score-based Challenge, an MVP will be determined, based on number of posts, points earned, and High Fives received, but there will also be a Most Encouraging Player: the person who gave out the most points, high fives, and comments!
—New Leaderboard: When score is kept, you can see who’s leading the way on a sparkly new in-platform Leaderboard!
—More visible Challenges: All of the Challenges from all of your Teams will now appear, at the top of your main feed. Each time you pull up the app, flip through them, to get new ideas for things to accomplish and post!
Most of this will be determined by the Captain, so if you’re a regular team member, encourage your fearless leader to get with it!
And if you’re a Team Captain, get ready for a whole new world of fun, because you can control the Scoring system, pick participants, and even schedule out your Challenges, in advance! All from the Challenge creation screen, from your phone or computer!
With all this in mind, here’s our first new Challenge to you: Enjoy the world around you, share it with Spire, and let us know what you think!
