Adding steps to your program

There's no limit on the amount of steps you can add to your online program. Within each step, add content to inspire participants to complete the program. Make your step engaging by adding videos, images, animated GIFs, and files. 
You can add steps at any time to a program that is live and has participants. 
  • If you create steps for future days, they are added to the program curriculum. 
  • If you add steps for days that have passed, they will be marked as "missed" for existing participants. 
  • New steps are not visible to participants who have already finished the program.

To add a step to your program:

  1. Go to Online Programs in your site's dashboard.
  2. Click the relevant program. 
  3. Scroll down to Content / Schedule.
  4. Click + Add and choose what you want to add:
    • Add step: Add a new step you write from scratch.

    • Basic Info: Give your step a name and choose the relevant section.
    • Content: Enter an informative description of your step, explaining how to complete it.

    • Enabled: Participants see a questionnaire after completing the step. Customize the type of questions you want participants to answer.
