How to count and report steps

Counting steps

To count steps you must use your smartphone or any other device capable of counting steps (smartwatch, fitness bracelet). For the smartphone you have to install a pedometer application, like Google Fit. Others devices have to be connected with your smartphone.

Reporting steps

To report the steps on the website you have to:

  1. login with the username and password provided by your teacher;
  2. go to Steps report page on your profile;
  3. fill the yellow form;
    • date – you may choose the current day or 5 days behind;
    • the number of steps you did in that day;
    • browse for a screenshot image captured from the pedometer application;
  4. press the green Add report submit button;
  5. the report is displayed on the page.

Notes:

  • because the pedometer application is installed on your smartphone, probably the screenshot file is located on the smartphone too, so it is easier to report the steps from your smartphone;
  • the report form is available only after login.
How to make a screenshot

A screenshot is a picture with the content of the screen. There are several ways to make a screenshot, depending on your smartphone. Please check your smartphone specifications about that. Google knows everything!

Depending on your phone:

  • press the Power and Volume down buttons at the same time;
  • press and hold the Power button for a few seconds. Then tap Screenshot;
  • knock the screen twice in quick succession with one knuckle;
  • if neither of these work, go to your phone manufacturer’s support site for help.
