We’ve made it easy to find and add friends. By navigating to the new friends section of MoveSpring’s main nav, users can easily view their current friends, respond to friend requests, and find new friends to add.
Users can search by username to add friends from the pool of all registered users within your organization. They can use this feature to connect with friends at work, get to know other colleagues, and engage in another layer of competition.
We know MoveSpring users love a little friendly competition. So when it came to designing MoveSpring’s friends list, we saw this as a perfect opportunity to foster a daily competition among friends.
Users can sort their friends list based on our three activity metrics: steps (default), distance, and active minutes. With their own user data pinned to the bottom of the screen, it’s easy to compare where they stand against any of their friends. Curious about past days of activity? Easy. Just click back to view previous days.
Adding a friends list leaderboard also benefits admins. As an admin, you put a lot of time into planning challenges, uploading content, and managing users. When you don’t have an active challenge running, users are still able to compete with friends on a daily basis.
Though we encourage social engagement with MoveSpring, we understand that fitness and activity levels can be something users want to keep personal. Or maybe some people just doesn’t want their friends to know their favorite way to get active is napping...hey, no judgment here! Whatever the case, MoveSpring gives users control over their profile’s privacy level when they edit their profile with the following options:
No matter what, as an added level of privacy, we do not reveal a user’s full name until they send a friend request. Don’t worry, it’s still a breeze to find and add friends by username.
Once a user has a growing list of friends, there are several new interactions available to them. In addition to competing daily in their friends leaderboard, users can now:
As an admin, you can turn on this new feature. Just navigate to your organization's account settings, and locate the Friends toggle under App Settings. Wondering if you should activate this feature? Read our help article or contact your client success manager with questions.
The MoveSpring team is excited to bring friends to you and your users. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
