Frequently Asked Questions
Group: your over-riding collective entity that can stay open & active for as long as you have an active DE group membership.
Challenge: a finite period of time (has a start & end date) whereby you or someone else within your “group” starts a competition using DE.
Team: a smaller entity consisting of other DE group members within a teams-based challenge and competes against other teams in the challenge. It could be you and your immediate colleagues, friends, and family.
Conference: a bigger entity consisting of “teams” within a DE group & challenge. Is often used to break down large challenges into smaller entities to facilitate the ability to offer incentives at multiple levels and keep everyone engaged throughout the challenge. This feature is great for those bigger groups who reside in disparate locations or for those who wish to compete primarily against peers at their own health and/or fitness levels, while still involved in the bigger challenge. Think big company office locations and/or departments or grouping/sub-grouping into different fitness and/or health levels here.
Division: an entity within a conference consisting of “teams” within a DE group & challenge. Is often used as another way to break down VERY large groups and facilitate multiple incentives at different levels.
Star Endorpher: the term for individual group & challenge participants. Is another way for groups to incentivize/reward at the individual level as well as group/challenge/conference/division/team levels. DE buckets exercises into 7 easy categories: top overall, cardio indoor, cardio outdoor, sports, strength training, walking & other. Star Endorphers are also tracked at the team level as well.
Endorphin Points: points assigned to exercise, wellness, nutrition, and steps. Exercise Endorphin Points are designed to account for perceived intensity of any exercise activity. The points system is loosely based on the “METs” (Metabolic Equivalent Table) system, is specific to each type of exercise, and is based on the length of time and intensity in which the exercise was performed. One’s exercise intensity entry automatically defaults to moderate unless specifically increased or decreased by the user for each entered activity by the endorpher based on the perceived intensity of your exercise that day. Our system essentially eliminates the variable of weight when calculating one’s calories-burned. For example, walking for 60 minutes at a moderate intensity will yield 41 points, while 60 minutes of moderate biking will yield 98 points for every endorpher regardless of his/her weight.

Challenge Creation & Administration
If you are starting a challenge within an existing DE “group” you already administer, click the “Group Admin” tab next in your user dashboard. Select the challenge you wish to build from the middle of your admin page, and follow the short steps in the set up wizard to set everything up and invite participants.
If you are starting a challenge for a group that has not yet been setup with DailyEndorphin, then click the blue “Register My Organization” button in the upper right hand corner of your user dashboard. DO NOT USE this button if you are looking to join an existing group & challenge set up by another person! You will need to join an existing DE challenge for the first time through a unique invite link that was likely distributed to everyone at some point. Follow up with your main DE group admin to procure that link.
