Admins have the option to allow/disallow data that participants have added manually to their Pacer account for current P4T challenges through the Organization Settings.
The default setting is No, and therefore Admins will not see the column in the individual or group leaderboards. If it is activated to Yes, a column will appear in the leaderboard. Refer to the Leaderboards & Reporting article for more information.
Note: Many organizations refer to this feature as the Honor System, because it assumes that a participant is entering their true activity of the day, rather than relying solely on their phone or wearable technology. Offering large prizes for top individual or team leaders will naturally invite people to take advantage of the system and possibly cheat by adding false data.
Participant Manually Added Data
We provide steps for how participants can add their own data on the Pacer Support website and the P4T Participant guide. Note: When participants manually add data to their Pacer account, the data will be reflected in the Leaderboards.
Administrator Manually Added Data
At this time, Admins are not able to manually add fitness data on behalf of other participants in the P4T system. We understand there might be a case or two where participants are not able to download and access the Pacer app to add their own data, but they still wish to be included in the challenge. As an Admin, you could run Export data reports and then manually add a user's data to the spreadsheet.
Note: This data will not reflect in the Pacer app leaderboard. The Admin is responsible to sharing any Challenge data reflecting the manually inputted data with challenge participants through a communication platform outside of Pacer.
