What is happening: This summer, we will be phasing out our online secure messaging system.

 

Who is affected: All Go365 Members.

 

What should I do: No actions are required. It is important that you print any messages you wish to keep for your records, as you will not be able to view them online once the secure messaging tab is removed.

 

Ways to submit activities: There will be a new way to submit your Biometric Screening forms to Go365. This will be announced soon with directions on how to submit your Biometric Screening. You will still be able to submit prevention activities by following How to Submit a Preventive Exam? or How to submit a Preventive Exam through the Go365 Mobile app?

What is happening: The Moves app will no longer be available for use as of 7/31/2018. Moves sent out a notification to all active members advising that the last day to login will be 7/30/2018.

 

What does this mean: As of 7/31/2018, Moves will no longer be active and you will not be able to login to view your data. Moves will also no longer share data with Go365.

 

What should I do: Before 7/31/2018, please go to the Device and Workout Guide to view a complete list of compatible devices and free apps. When you are ready to connect a new device, please go to How do I connect a Fitness Device? for assistance with connecting it to Go365.

Today, you will see a new change with the Challenges Point structure.

 

As a Go365 member, you will no longer get Points for creating or joining a team or joining a Challenge. You will receive 50 Points for participating in a Challenge (up to 100 Points each month).

 

What counts as “participation” in a Challenge? As long as you upload data with a Go365-compatible device at least once during a Challenge, you will have verified participation. Aside from step data for a step challenge, this also includes uploading your weight to a weight loss challenge.

 

Points will award once data syncs to the challenge, and can be found under the Personalized Activities category within your Go365 Statement.

 

These changes have been put in place to improve the Challenge experience. The Point restructuring is to reward people who make an effort to actively engage in the Challenges.
