  • Organization = School District No

IMPORTANT:
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. This enables you to bulk-log kilometers for either individual team members or all team members at a time.

Build School Teams

MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOLS
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)

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Elementary School Teams or LARGE Teams

  • only the Team Leader will keep track of the team’s rides/kilometers on their Participation Tracker and log the team’s entire participation at the end of each week by using the Multi-Rider Mode Logging system (scroll further down for screenshots showing how it works).

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 screenshots below in the next sesction.
  4. Make sure to choose the right date in “Week Range” when you are logging kilometers from the past.
