What is manual activity entry?

Manual activity entry allows you to add activities with optional accompanying steps, distance, and active minutes totals into your MoveSpring account. Data added through manual activity entry will be combined with any device data synced for the day.

⚠️ Please note: It is up to your challenge admin to enable manual activity entry. If you do not see the option to add activity, it is not allowed for your challenge.

Why use manual activity entry?

  • Don’t have a device, or your current device/pedometer doesn’t integrate with MoveSpring? You can use manual activity entry to add your data to your account to join in on the fun!

  • Forget to wear your fitness tracker during a workout? You can use manual activity entry to add in your workout data while continuing to sync data from your connected device.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Entries can be logged for up to 7 days (the current day and the previous 6 days). Please make sure you enter totals regularly. We recommend entering totals once a day to maintain the most up-to-date stats in your challenge.

  • Each entry should be logged individually on the specific day it was performed. Do not add in data for multiple days under one entry. This will throw off challenge stats.

  • Grace period rules always apply. Once a challenge ends, all scoring is final and challenge stats can no longer be updated. Any entries added or removed after your challenge ends will save to your MoveSpring account but will not update in your challenge.

  • Manual activity entries are added to any device data synced for the day. Syncing from your device will not be interrupted if you add a manual activity entry during the day, but totals between your device and MoveSpring will no longer match due to the additional data logged in MoveSpring.
