New updates and improvements to Training Tilt.

  1. New Notifications for Goals and Events

    New Feature
    Announcement
    Athlete Feature

    We've just released two new notification types for Client Goals and Events.

    Coaches can receive a notification when any of their assigned athletes creates, changes, removes or marks a goal as being achieved.

    Athletes can also configure the notifications for when the coach is the one that makes the changes to goals.

    A similar feature for Events where coaches will be notified when an event is created, changed or removed by an athlete. The athlete has the same set of notifications for when the coach adds, changes or removes the event from the events list.

    There are two new settings for the notification on the notification settings page. These notifications are turned on by default.

    Both these types of notifications include a link to go directly to the goal or event in the web app.

    Import Structured Workouts

    We want to add the ability to import structured workouts that are exported as files from other platforms. Handy for coaches who use more than one coaching system or a migrating from another platform. The initial release will be probably ZWO (Zwift) and FIT (Garmin) file formats. Instead of having to build a structured workout manually you will be able to import a file and the workout will be generated automatically.

    Cam Langsford
    We are coding it now 🛠️

    5

    You can now generate structured workouts from existing zwo files which is Zwift's format for structured workouts.

    This is a great time saver if you already have a library of structured workouts in other platforms like TrainingPeaks or from Zwift itself.

    First you need to download the zwo files from the other platform(s) then you can upload them into your TT site.

    There are two ways to upload.

    1. As brand new workouts in your library

    You can do this by going to your workout library then select the Import - Zwift (zwo) option.

    image

    Now you can select one or more zwo files to import as brand new workouts into your library. The import tool will use the name and description within the zwo file itself to generate the new workout and structure.

    2. As the structured component of existing workouts

    You can also upload individual workouts into existing workouts to generate just the structured component of a workout. You can do this from within a library workout, a workout inside a training plan or a workout inside an athlete calendar.

    Fi,rst open the workout and go to the "Structured workout" tab and click Build workout

    image

    Now use the "Import" drop down and select "Build from Zwift file (zwo)"

    image

    This will upload the zwo file and then generate the structure for the workout.

    Make sure you click save after uploading the file!

    The next phase of this feature will be the ability to upload a structured workout file in the FIT format.

  3. Duplicate a workout in the library

    New Feature
    Improvement
    Announcement
    Coach Feature

    You can now duplicate an existing workout in your workout library

    Very handy for saving time creating new workouts that are similar to workouts you've already created

    First go to your workout library and click the "copy" button

    image

    Now enter a new name for the workout and click save

    image

    You will now have a brand new workout copied from the original, including any linked videos, files or structured workouts.

    Copy Training Sessions

    In order to create sessions quickly with very similar content it would be great to be able to copy a session and then edit the copy to the slightly different spec.

  4. Sometimes clients and coaches forget their unique login site url and come to the Training Tilt marketing website to try to login. Up till now we've just had a placeholder login page where we've advised visitors they need to login on their unique site (not our marketing website).

    If they didn't know what it was they could also submit a request to our support team with their email or username.

    We wanted to make this more automated so they could find their login page straight away wihtout waiting for support.

    We've now updated the login page on our website to enable them to lookup their own site by entering their email address.

    Sometimes people have accounts with more than one of our coaches so we handle this by showing them all the sites they have access to and then redirect them to the correct login page.

    "Find my site" login page

    Some the clients of Training Tilt coaches come to the training tilt site instead of the coaches unique site to try and login. In the past, we created a dummy login site on our marketing website where we would advise them that they need to login on to their coaches site not on our website but we also let them submit their email or username so we could look it up for them. However, sometimes they would need to wait a few hours or even a day or so if over the weekend for us to respond manually. We want to create an automated process so they can submit their email address and we will look up their coaches site and send them to the appropriate login page immediately.

  5. Better use of available page space

    Announcement
    Improvement

    We've increased the height of some lists and grids take up on larger screen sizes to make better use of the available space.

  6. A few nice changes in the calendar this week along with some enhancements to make it more efficient to manage plans

    Select and Delete

    You can now select workouts by individual workout, day or week and then delete them all at once. A much faster way to clean up a plan or an athlete calendar.

    You can select an entire week

    image

    A day at a time

    image

    Or just select one workout at a time

    image

    Once selected you can click to delete all the selected workouts at once. Or deselect them all to start over.

    image

    Delete Full Week Improvement

    The delete full week option used to be available only from the athlete calendar, not from a template training plan. This function is now available across both views. Additionally deleting a full week used to then force a page reload, this is no longer necessary.

    image

    Calendar Design and Layout

    The calendar layout has been redesigned to make it cleaner looking on the page and make way for some future changes we have planned.

    Cleaner Calendar

    The calendar view is now cleaner on the page. The columns are all a consistent height vs different heights based on how many workouts were on each day. We've also created a bit of extra real estate so we will have more space for a weekly summary column that will be coming soon.

    image

    Background Color for Past and Future Dates

    Dates in the past now have a white background whereas future dates have a grey background.

    image

    Easier to Navigate Mobile Web Layout

    We've adjusted the web layout of the calendar view on a mobile browser to be easier to navigate and to be able to see more than a single day at a time like the previous mobile web view.

  7. Building structured workouts with threshold percentages just got a lot easier.

    Now when you are building workouts you can use a "Sample" threshold value so that when you are building the workout using percentages you can see the corresponding actual Power, HR, Pace and Speed values.

    While in the library and template plans this will be a "Sample" value that you can edit while building. But if you are building directly against an athletes calendar it will show the athletes actual Threshold values and use those to do the calculations.

    Library and Template Plan Mode

    In Library and template mode a default "Sample" threshold value is now present, you can edit this value to suit your needs.

    image

    The sample values are used to calculate and display the absolute Pace, Power, HR and Speed values based on the percentage values you enter

    image

    Athlete Calendar Mode

    In athlete calendar mode the athletes actual threshold values are loaded

    image

    This value will be used to calculate the actual values the athlete will be prescribed for each interval.

    image

    Workout Builder: Show actual values not just % of threshold

    When showing intervals or hovering over intervals the % of threshold value is shown as a percentage. If an athlete has their training zones and thresholds set this should also show the absolute value of pace, power speed etc.

  8. E-commerce and membership improvements

    New Feature
    Improvement
    Coach Feature

    We've batched up a bunch of improvements to our e-commerce "products" and "membership plans" features today. All these features are designed to make it easier to sell products and services and manage your memberships.

    Fixed Expiry Date for Fixed Length Membership Plans

    Many of our coaches run programs or coaching that start and finish on specific dates. In this scenario they have been using the "days to expiry" setting so that their clients accounts expire after X many days. Because their customers do not all signup on the same date the expiry date for members end up all different depending on when they signed up.

    Having a fixed expiry date for a membership plan will ensure everyone who signs up to that membership will have the correct expiry date on their membership regardless of when they signed up. You can configure this on the payments tab of your membership plans.

    Configure "Apply Plan" default values for an add on training plan

    When someone purchases an add on training plan coaches often want the plan to be applied to a specific date and don't want to have to do this manually or ask the customer to do it.

    You can now set these defaults when you configure the membership plan then when the client signs up those default values will be set when they create their account. As long as they don't change the values during signup the training plan will be applied using the default configuration at the same time their account is created.

    Stock Levels of Add on Training Plans for Memberships

    Often coaches want to restrict the number of memberships that are available for a given membership plan.

    We have implemented a way to do this using the "Training Plan Add on" tab in membership plans. You can now enter stock levels for each add-on plan. If you make the add-on plan a required field then if all the plans are out of stock then no-one will be able to purchase.

    One use case for this is if you were offering swimming classes and there were limited spo,ts per lane. For each lane you would add an add-on plan option and configure the number of available places in each lane. As each lane gets sold the stock level will go down automatically and once it gets to zero it will show as sold out.

    Custom thank you page for store products

    A custom thank you page enables you to send people to a page of your choice after they purchase a product. This can be on or off your Training Tilt site.

    Direct to Checkout Links for Store Products

    Sometimes you want to share a special link that just sends the customer directly to checkout with a product that doesn't require any options or shipping to be selected.

    This reduces friction in the purchase process and in turn better conversions than using the normal product link in the store. If you are using the Stripe gateway each of your products will now have a special link you can share or use in your marketing.

  10. Training Zones now included on Calculators pages

    Improvement
    Announcement
    Coach Feature

    We've just added the calculator parts of the existing training zones feature to the calculator pages in your members are but also on the public calculators page of your website.

    Having these calculators is a good tool for your members/clients to play around with without actually modifying their training zones but also as a way to drive traffic to your website for a free non-members resource.

    There is a new "Training Zones" tab in the calculators page and under that is the HR, Power and Pace tabs.

    image

    The user can then modify the values and use the calculators. Unlike on the actual Training Zones feature you can't then apply and save your zones as this is just the calculations version.

    If you want to learn more about setting up the calculators on your public website checkout this article.
