Announcements

New updates and improvements to Training Tilt.

  1. We've fixed the way buttons are laid out while creating a workout, on smaller screens the buttons would overlap. There is now appropriate space between the buttons.

    We also fixed an issue where description was not required on creating a new workout, but if you then tried to edit a workout without a description, you would get a validation error.

  2. We've fixed an issue where if you enter content with accented characters in languages like Polish or Greek. although the values could be entered, searching for content using those characters would not return the correct results.

    Now both adding and searching for those accented characters should work correctly across the app.

  3. Coaching Team

    New Feature
    Announcement
    Coach Feature
    Improvement

    We've just released a more comprehensive way of managing a team of coaches and their access to individual clients.

    You can now assign a primary coach to a client but also assign additional coaches as part of a "Coaching Team".

    How is this useful?

    Many coaching businesses have a team of coaches that work together to get the best results for individual clients. This might be a mix of generalists and specialists like triathlon coaches, running coaches, cycling coaches, strength coaches and nutritionists. Each coach needs access to a client's training plan and other resources.

    Although you want to provide access to multiple coaches to individual clients, you may only want them to have access to the specific clients they are assigned to but not all clients. Some coaches might be part-time or brought on just for a specific client so it's important to be able to limit what access they have to the coaching platform as a whole as well as which clients they have access to.

    Assigning Coaching Teams

    To assign a coaching team simply edit a client account and assign the primary coach and/or the members coaching team.

    This increases the flexibility of the platform and allows multiple coaches to manage a single client while maintaining other security aspects of the platform.

    Previously if you wanted more than one coach to access a client you would either need to share a coaching account or give the coaching team access to all of the athletes in the system.

    Now you can maintain the integrity of the system by restricting coaches to only their assigned clients but they will be able to see clients they are the primary coach of or part of the coaching team.

    This is the setting on coach accounts you can use to maintain this security.

    Notifications

    Coaches can now decide what types of notifications they want to receive based on whether they are the primary coach or part of a coaching team. This will save coaches from being overwhelmed by notifications if they are playing just a minor role in coaching a client.

    Each notification setting related to coach-client interactions now has a "Primary" vs "Team" setting so that coaches can configure them independently.

    image

    Thanks to everyone who contributed feedback that helped to form this new feature, and we hope this makes it easier to manage your coaching teams in a more comprehensive and professional way.

    Allow multiple coaches to be assigned to Athlete

    Currently, only one coach can be assigned to an athlete. Many coaching businesses have multiple coaches associated with one athlete. Plan is to have the ability to assign one or more coach to each athlete so all the coaches can get notifications about individual athletes and other features already associated with the coach athlete relationship

    Assistant coaches who can only view coaching features

    Currently I we add another coach, they have access to the backend of the website, I have several coaches who provide assistance in sessions, who I would like to have coach accounts for, but who cannot edit the website, financial details etc. We use an 'Swim Programme' account to write the sessions and create notes about the plans etc

  4. Description of Workout Now Optional

    Improvement
    Coach Feature

    You no longer need to add a description/workout instructions to a workout in the library, training plan or athlete calendar modes.

    For simple workouts, coaches were often just copying and pasting the title of the workout into the description so it's much more efficient if the Title and workout type are the only required fields for a workout.

    We've also made some other related small improvements.

    In Library mode we've moved some of the less used fields into an expandable section and re-ordered the more popular fields. This should make it easier to create new workouts quickly.

    image

    image

    When you add a new workout the Title field is highlighted by default with the placeholder text "New Workout" this will save coaches one step of clicking into the text box and they can just start typing.

    Make Title and workout type the only required fields in a workout

    Some workouts don't require a description and to work around this some coaches just repeated what they typed in the title field into the description field which is unnecessary. For this reason the description field should be optional

  5. Our latest release is live!

    Two new things in this release. "Lap button press" for durations and "No target" or "Open" intensities in structured workouts.

    You can now configure structured workouts to have an open duration so that your clients can use the lap button on their devices to progress to the next interval.

    This is a great option for workouts where the warmup needs to finish only once they reach a specific place on their run or bike. For example, I have a run I do where I start the intervals once I reach the top of a climb. I never arrive right at the end of the 25-minute warmup so this feature lets me start my intervals exactly when I need to.

    You can now also configure "Not target" or "Open" intensities on intervals. This is great for warm-ups, rest periods and cool downs where you don't have a specific intensity in mind. This avoids the annoying warnings going off and saves you from having to set broad intensity ranges in intervals.

    Watch the video above how it works or dive right in to your structured workout builder and see the new options.

    "No Target" for intensities and "Open/Lap Button Press" for duration in Structured workouts

    Soon you'll be able to use "No target" when specifying intensities in structured workout intervals. You'll also be able to configure duration as "Open or Lap Button Press" instead of having to set a time or distance.

  7. Send any type of workout to Garmin

    Improvement
    Announcement
    Athlete Feature
    Coach Feature

    You can now send any type of workout to your Garmin Connect calendar. Previously it was restricted to Running and Cycling workouts.

    Due to the limited number of workout types in Garmin most of the workouts will get sent through to Garmin with the "Custom" workout type.

  8. Our latest release is out.

    The video covers changes from the last few releases

    Training Calendar Menu Item

    We've just added a new menu item for coaches so you can go directly to the Training Calendar without first having to search for a client and then click on their calendar.

    The new menu item is under the "Coaching" item on the left-hand menu

    image

    Empty State Guidance

    We now show coaches and athletes some guidance and an "empty state" image so it's more obvious what has happened if there is an empty screen. For example, if a coach visits a feature like "forms" that doesn't have any forms yet the following guidance and image will show.

    image

    Similarly, if an athlete/client visits an empty page or searches for something that returns no results they will be shown a similar message and image. Note the image is greyscale rather than blue in this case so it does not clash with any branding the coach as configured.

  9. A couple of small improvements today.

    Configurable Landing Page for Coaches

    When coaches log in they are directed to the coaching dashboard page by default. Many coaches then navigate straight away to the client calendar or the client dashboard. As a coach, you can now choose which of these pages you want to be sent to automatically when you log in.

    To set your page, go to settings from the top right-hand menu and scroll down to select your default landing page.

    image

    Click save to save the changes

    image

    Now log out and back in again and you should be directed to the new landing page automatically. If there is no athlete in context the system will automatically link you to the athlete with the latest activity.

    Automatic Login for new Athletes

    Previously when athletes created an account from a signup page or from an invitation they would still need to log in manually after they sign up even though they'd just entered a new username and password. No athletes are logged in automatically as soon as they have created their account.

  10. Custom scripts and styles on website pages

    Improvement
    Coach Feature
    Announcement

    You can now add custom scripts and styles to your public website pages.

    A great way to add new functionality to your website, like custom calculators or just third part scripts that you help you with your business.

    To add a script or new CSS style simply login to your site and go to the page you want to add the script or style to. Click the configure button and then use the advanced tab.
