Logging ‘Bulk’ Kilometres

Using the ‘Bulk Entry’ function is a great way for workplace coordinators and teachers/administrators to encourage more people to take on the Jack Frost Challenge!

The team coordinator can track kilometres throughout the week using this spreadsheet. Once the week is over, team coordinators can send this to challenge@greenactioncentre.ca AND enter the cumulative kilometres for each active mode.

This way, all kilometres go towards the totals for Manitoba and each individual participant has a chance to win prizes!

To use the ‘Bulk Entry’ function, log in as a team coordinator.

Go to the top right corner of the screen for a menu that reads “Results | Profile | Bulk Entry | Log Out”. Select the ‘Bulk Entry‘ button. Once you arrive on the ‘Bulk Entry’ page, look under the ‘Your Locations’ section and click the pencil icon.

From there, enter the number of participants and the number of kilometres per mode. For the purposes of Jack Frost Challenge, please enter all walking, running, snowshoeing, skating, and skiing activities under the ‘walking’ mode.
