Activity Details

Some activities already have deep links tying them to pillars. These include: Consume, Fast, Sleep, and Practice.


The order of activities within the Courses screen dictates the order the user sees in their Today tile in the mobile app. The only activity not impacted by reordering is the Motivate activity, which is always placed at the top of the Today tile. Use Course Tools to change activity ordering.

For the fasting and sleep activities, the activity's verbiage auto-populates and includes the duration you set in the parameters. Anything entered into the title for these two activities appears as a second line. For example, if you select the fasting activity, set the duration to 16 hours and leave the title blank, the activity in the Today Tile of the mobile app reads "Fast for 16 hours." But if you'd added "Fasting while sleeping counts toward your total fasting hours" in the title field of the activity parameters, it would appear as a separate sentence below "Fast for 16 hours."

Once you've added a title for an activity, the next time you add that activity to your course and begin typing the title name, it autofills the name for convenience.


Some activities can be toggled to add rich content to their activity.

To configure rich content for an activity:

  1. Click the toggle for Include Description.
  2. In the window that opens, provide a description and add the supporting media (by adding a link to an image, audio, or video). This is displayed on the Today tile of the mobile app for that activity.
  3. Toggle on Deep Link and specify the target to link to (optional).
  4. Click Create after setting the parameters.

  • URL

The difference between using a YouTube URL in a Watch activity type versus including it as a rich content is that the Watch activity YouTube URL launches the mobile app video player, where the rich content video link plays the video in a small dialog box that shows the Today tile in the background.

Beyond the activity verb and object (Title) that is displayed on the Today tile in the mobile app, an activity with rich content presents a modal to the user when tapped. Text (defined by the description) and image, audio, or video (defined by media URL) are visible as well as an optional button (defined by the deep link). For example, you can deep link to an applet (such as the Grip Strength Assessment applet) and then select from a list which applet you want to direct the user.
