Webex Integration with ChallengeRunner

ChallengeRunner Integration with Teams

Easily integrate your fitness challenge into your Cisco Webex spaces

With Cisco Webex, users can effortlessly collaborate with colleagues in a variety of ways or use an external app such as ChallengeRunner without leaving the app or switching context. While ChallengeRunner provides all of the features needed for an effective challenge such as easy data collection and feedback natively, other aspects, such as invitations and communications, are more difficult for a third-party app to provide due to limitations of legacy communication tools such as email and text messages.

Webex offers a full suite of collaboration tools allowing users to communicate with one another and to simplify collaboration. When combined with ChallengeRunner, Webex provides the ultimate compliment to make your challenge successful by eliminating application context switching and simplifying communications.

Simple Challenge Integration

  1. Create a ChallengeRunner Commercial or Enterprise organization account. Please see: New Organization
  2. Create a Webex Space for your challenge communications
  3. Add ChallengeRunner to your Webex apps.
The ChallengeRunner app will now be available to all of your Webex users. To make new or existing challenges accessible to users, perform the following:
  1. If not already created, build a new challenge using ChallengeRunner. Please see: Create an Employee Fitness Challenge
  2. Click the Edit Challenge button next to the challenge name
  3. Select an available option from the Collaboration Channel drop down box and click Save
