Top Tips for users- Syncing errors etc

The document below outlines some of the key issues experienced by users and clients and steps to resolve each case.

Data is automatically sent from your device, to MDXMoves at the end of each day, where your points are automatically calculated by the system. In order to keep your device tracking your activity, you must open your chosen app (withings/ strava/ fitbit etc) on your phone to make sure you are collecting the latest data. This way your latest achievements are synced and sent your MDXMoves account. You also need to open your Moves+ app regularly to make sure it is active. Checking both your moves+ app and your tracker daily is recommended. MDXMoves is a wellbeing initiative run by the Sport & Rercreation team at the university, and is an initiative to help our students and staff be more motivated to move. The rewards are a gesture of our goodwill in supporting our members to be more active, and although we do our best to deliver prizes and rewards, this sometimes may not be possible.

Some users have experienced their 'app not recording or syncing data'. This is where a user has let the app lie dormant for a few weeks, and so it momentarily stops recording data. We do our best to recover data, but in some cases data cannot be recovered. If you are experiencing any issues with syncing data please contact t.hannan@mdx.ac.uk
