World Time Zones & Syncing Data
1. The Pacer App and Pacer for Teams Admin system takes into account a user's specific geographic location and time zone to determine which calendar day the fitness activity will be recorded.
2. Pacer challenges are measured on a calendar day, midnight to midnight. For example, a scheduled Pacer challenge from March 1 to March 31 officially starts at 12:00 AM (0:00) on March 1 and ends at 11:59 PM (23:59) on March 31.
3. The P4T Enterprise Challenge system gives an additional 12 hours after a scheduled challenge ends for participants to sync their data. For example, if a challenge ends on March 31, a participant will have until Noon (12:00) on April 1 in their current time zone to sync data for the last time. Anything after Noon will not be considered.
4. Regardless of which world time zone the challenge was created in, each participant will have their current time zone calendar day to record challenge data. For example, a California-based user (GMT-8) working for a London-based company (GMT-0) will have a day that finishes 8 hours after London's. As such, Admins who want to report the most accurate weekly challenge leaderboard updates for global challenges should consider the participants closest to the International Dateline (ex. California/British Columbia, Hawaii). In such a case, Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning London time would allow ample time for a participant to sync.
5. There is a known product limitation for participants who travel frequently across multiple world time zones.
If your challenge will include more than 200 participants and will span more than one continent or time zone, we require at least 2 weeks to properly onboard Challenge Administrators, run a free P4T trial to test international phone systems & networks, and ensure enough challenge participant onboarding time.
