Create a School Team

School Teams can be created for classrooms, grades, divisions, staff, groups of friends or families, riding bubbles, etc.

  • Organization = School District No
  • Branch = School Name

Here’s detailed instructions on how to create a school team:

  1. If you don’t have an account, create a new account. If you’ve created an account before, then login.
  2. Click Join or Create Team

3. Create a Team Name

4. You will be asked “Is your team “GBB School” part of an organization? (An organization may be a company, school district, or other large group)” Click Yes.
5. Search for your School District
6. If you can’t find it, click Create Organization then enter your School Board address and click Next.

7. You will be asked, “Is your team “GBB School” in a branch within “School District 34”? (A branch may be a school within a school district, a department within a company, or any other kind of subgroup within an organization).
8. Click Yes.
9. Search for your School Name in the Branch drop-down menu. If you find your School Name, click on it.
10. If you don’t see your School Name, click Create Branch.

Build School Teams

On School Teams, the Team Leader can

  • invite teammates to join the team (these teammates must have an email address)
  • add teammates to the team (these teammates are so called Non-User Riders, and do not have an email address)

OR

  • keep track of their team’s participation using a Participation Tracker, and use the Bulk Kilometer and Multi-Rider Mode Logging system.

How to invite people to join the team:

In order to invite riders to your team, you have three options,

  1. They need to register an account first
  2. Login to your Dashboard and click Team at the top
  3. Email people a link to join your team. Copy the Invite Riders with URL on the left and send an email with the URL to possible teammates to see if they want to join your team. Note: invitees must have an account, if they don’t have an account, please tell them to register first (send them this link to register https://logmyride.gobybikebc.ca/register)
  4. Send an Invite via Facebook (you have to allow pop-ups for your browser), or
  5. Send an Invite via email straight from your dashboard.

How to add people to the team

IMPORTANT: if you add riders to your team, you will be responsible for logging their bike rides (kilometers) for them. If riders have a valid email address, we encourage you to invite them to join your team so that they can choose to log their own bike rides (kilometers) OR you can log for them.

To Add Riders to Your Team:

  1. Click Team at the top
  2. Click Riders in the secondary menu
  3. Scroll down to see where you can add Non-User Riders to your team. Non-User Riders do not have user accounts. Typically Non-User Riders are only added when they don’t have a valid email address.

How to Log Rides for Teammates:

  1. In the Team section, click Log Team KM.
  2. Bulk-Log Kilometers: Enter teammates’ kilometers in the table. You can select individual riders or “all”. See screenshot below.
  3. Multi-Rider Mode: Lets you enter the same trip for all members of your team at once. You can edit or delete individual rides once you click “apply”. See screenshot below.
  4. Make sure to choose the right date in “Week Range” when you are logging kilometers from the past.
