System update – April 2019

29 April 2019

Inbox visuals update

The inbox has been updated to clarify the information regarding all inbox messages/notices/notes. Each inbox line has an icon showing which type of message it is, the name of the athlete the message is from (if you are a coach) as well as the last person who replied to the message. This update also carries over into external inboxes, so now all email received regarding an inbox message/notice clearly show the athletes name in the subject.

Workout ordering

We have updated the ordering of workouts as they appear in the calendar if there is more than one workout on a day. Now, when workouts are dragged into the calendar, the start times are automatically updated so that workouts stay in the order that they are dragged into the calendar on. There is also a new “workout reorder” button on each workout which allows you to reorder the workout up or down the specific day in the calendar.

Workout Priorities

Our latest site update includes a new workout scheduling option which allows users to set a priority for each workout added to the calendar. The three priorities are:

  • Critical: “This is a critical activity and should not be missed”
  • Routine: “This is a routine activity. It is not absolutely essential to complete, but recommended”
  • Optional: “This is an optional activity. If you need to skip an activity this is the one to miss”

Workout priorities can be added as an option when dragging a workout into the calendar. If you do not wish to use the workout priorities you can leave that section blank.

Workout priorities

When added to the calendar, workouts will have different borders depending on their priority. Critical workouts have a solid border, Routine workouts have a dashed border and optional activities have a dotted border.

When opening a scheduled workout, users will again be able to see the priority in the top left hand corner with a description of what the priority is.

For coaches, the border of the workout in the calendar uses the “Secondary” colour in the coaching company settings, as shown below.

These workout priorities are also visualised as borders to the workouts in the mobile app.

Run pace analysis update

In the Analysis graph for running, we have inverted the y-axis for running, so faster paces are shown at the top of the graph. This brings pace in line with other metrics such as power, where users are accustomed to seeing the faster/higher values at the top.

We have also updated the scaling of the y-axis to diminish the effects of slow speed spikes which can be recorded by devices. This makes it easier for users to see small variations in pace.
