One of the most commonly requested features from our partners is to allow them to create challenges through the desktop dashboard. We've been working on that request and we're happy to be able to provide that feature to all our partners.

For more information on challenges, challenge types, and how to utilize them, please read our Introduction To Challenges article.

Please note: currently there might be a short delay before your challenge syncs to the server. Please wait at least 30 minutes before re-creating your challenge if it doesn't immediately show up.

Here's how to use the Desktop Dashboard to create challenges.

  1. First, be sure to switch between your Member role to your Impact/Inspire/Campus Role.

  2. Next, click on the Challenges tab in the left menu bar

  3. Then click on the "Create a Challenge" button at the top right

From the Create a Challenge page, you can create a local, connected, or Featured challenge.


Instructions For Each Challenge Type:

Local Challenge

Local challenges are a stand-alone challenge that does not connect to any other challenges nor is it featured or connectable.

  1. The default selection is Local, so you should already have local challenge selected.

  2. Select if this challenge will be public or private

  3. Give your challenge a Title

  4. Give your challenge a brief summary in the Details section

  5. Give your challenge a Litter Goal

  6. Select one of the three theme colors (light blue, dark blue, and red)

  7. Then select your challenge location and radius (max = 500 KM or 310 Miles)

  8. Click Launch Challenge to complete your challenge.


Connected Challenge

Connected challenges are challenges that feed into Featured challenges created by any of our partners. Simply select "Connect to a Featured Challenge" from the Type dropdown menu.

Featured Challenge

Featured challenges are the recommended way to create your challenge due to their flexibility. You can define its location like a local challenge, or you can make it a worldwide challenge without boundaries. Other people can connect to it and help increase numbers. Lastly, you can send notifications to participants through Featured challenges. This feature isn't available for any of the other challenge types. Start by selecting "Featured Challenge" from the Type dropdown menu.

  1. Upload your challenge image (recommended size: 1242 x 720 px)

  2. Select if this challenge will be public or private

  7. Click Launch Challenge to complete your challenge.


Once you’ve set up your challenge, be sure to tell everyone about your challenge.
