Challenge invites

Challenge invites

Now you can invite friends and family to join you in challenges on Vital.

As part of our initial release, there are two ways you can send invite. The first option is to share a url link, which provides instructions to the recipient on how to download Vital and access the relevant challenge. The second option is to invite users on Vital by using the search bar and selecting the user from a list.

We’ve seen that users are more likely to complete their challenge when they do it alongside friends. We have other tools which help users provide encouragement and have fun, including challenge nudges and challenge conversations.

Try it out and see for yourself!
