How do i Log an Activity?
Click on the circular button with the plus (+) symbol. This is located in the upper left in the desktop versions and the lower right on mobile. This will take you to your daily goals. Click on the day you want to log an activity for to open the logger.
Can I connect my wearable device?
As of now we don't connect to any wearable devices. The main reason is that by not passively logging your activity you engage in the features within Perk Health that have been proven to positively influence the healthy habits of you and your teammates. We have also found people generally stick with Perk Health much longer than fit bits or other trackers.
What is a win?
Your wins are a count of the daily goals you've achieved. At Perk Health we believe health isn't about doing the most push-ups or taking the most steps. Winning when it comes to health is about finding the healthy habits you can stick with and doing them every day.
What if I want to log an activity that's not on the list?
Send us an email at email@example.com and let us know what you'd like to add. We want to have a comprehensive list of common activities and so we look forward to your requests.
What is a Kudos?
A way to encourage your friends. After you follow someone and their items show in your feed you can send them "kudos" by clicking on the thumbs up icon. After doing so, they will receive a notification that you have sent them Kudos. Think of kudos as just that, a thumbs up showing your support.

Your privacy is very important to us. We only share aggregate, non personally identifiable with your employer for the purpose of benchmarking the effectiveness of the program. We do share with them the amount of money you earned.
What information can be seen by other users?
If, and only if, you allow other people to follow you they will be able to see some information about the healthy habits you log. They will never be able to see private data like your height and weight.
What is LIGHT/MOD/VIG?
These options show up when you're logging a healthy habit that's an exercise. They stand for Light, Moderate, and Vigorous intensity and are needed to calculate how many calories you burn. Use your best judgement!
Can I log how far I ran or walked?
Yes! For some exercises when you open the logger there will be a link above the blue button that says "distance" this will allow you to track both distance and pace.
How do the rewards work?
Depending on how your team is set up you can earn rewards for your daily wins. If your employer is participating in the cash rewards program, you earn a dollar or two for each daily win up to a maximum each week (usually $3 or $5).
