  1. Add new workout types

    It would be nice to be able to create a new activity type to track. As an XC ski coach, I'd like to be able to track XC Ski- Skate and XC ski-Classic as well as Rollerski- Skate and Rollerski-Classic. It would also be good to be able to track Yoga and other activities that an athlete does regularly that don't fit neatly into the current categories.

      We have a plan to add the ability to tag workouts so that we can support an unlimited set of workout types. It’s in the works, albeit a ways off.. but we’re getting there! Thanks for the suggestion.

    • Organize the Training Plan Library

      I would like the functionality to organize my Training Plan Library the same way I can the athlete or workout library. I have about 60+ training plans ranging from stuff I use each week to plans for sale to individual specific plans. I would like to have folders to organize these plans.

      • Training Plan Library - Folders

        Some of us coaches have a ton of plans, particularly if we are multi-sports coaches. It would be great to have the ability to organize plans in Folders, for example Marathon Plans, 70.3 Plans, etc. At times it can get a bit messy this would help streamline things a bit.

        Thanks!

        • Workout Library

          The workout library is REALLY in need of an update. As a coach this is essentially the area I rely on the most and there are a number of things that make it more painful then it needs to be. A few suggestions:

          - Re-enabling workout codes would allow ability to filter workout types
          - Workout "tags" could allow better searching
          - Reorganizing workouts is painful. Example: I create a library called Swim Form/Efficiency... and then tried to look for all workouts with the word form in it so I could drag them into the Library, which was hidden because…

          • Add support for Swim HR (Heart Rate) to AutoSync form Garmin

            It seems that this has been asked for by users in may places for over 18 month now, yet has never been implemented. To make it unmistakably clear how important this is to users I added this as a single request, rather than being mixed in and thus overlooked / forgotten.

            For clarification and to be precise:
            This feature request is for the support of reading the heart rate from a swim workout captured on a Garmin device directly via the Garmin AutoSync using the .FIT file. Manually exporting the file as TCX file from Garmin Connect, then opening training…

            • WKO / Training Peakings Synchronization

              When I add a new athlete in TrainingPeaks, WKO+ would recognize the new athlete, create new athlete in WKO+ and give me the option to "download" historical data.

              TrainingPeaks / WKO+ synchronize user data.

              • WKO Metrics

                Add metrics to WKO, when I upload a workout for my coach to review I do it via WKO and then I have to go into training peaks to add metrics after that, so I usually don't bother, my coach and I chat regularly so it isn't that much of a bother but then there really isn't a historical record so to speak.

                  • Download wellness data from Apple HealthKit without FitnessSyncer

                    In a perfect scenario my "wellness" data such as steps, sleep, weight etc. and planned workouts, recorded in Garmin Connect would seamlessly be synced and added to my TrainingPeaks account. The workaround I am using now is FitnessSyncer, but this service is limited at best... But what if you connect more widely with Apple HealthKit through your iOS app?

                    • Associate and disassociate completed activities with planned workouts

                      When an activity is completed and uploaded automatically, Training Peaks does a reasonable but imperfect job of lining these up with planned workouts. This does not always work correctly, especially with races, so it would be handy to have and option to associate activities with planned workouts. Conversely it would be useful to be able to separate planned workouts and completed activities so that they can be associated correctly. I think of this akin to reconciliation of receipts to your bank statement. I was thinking along the lines of select an activity and a planned session and then click a…

                      • Create a Trail Running TSS

                        There's a few post here about using hrTSS for trail but I think it would be better to make a new TSS specific for trailrunning. I would simply not consider any downhill in the NGP calculation. The pace would only be adjusted on the climbs. Running downhill is less stressful physiologically but more stressful mechanically so I believe it would give a pretty accurate idea of the overall training stress.

                        The NGP calculations are probably based on Minetti's equations which are anyway a lot more accurate to predict uphill performance then downhill...

                        • Improve accuracy of NGP on hills

                          As it is today, NGP accounts for hills -- up or down -- by adjusting NGP up when climbing, and adjusting down when descending. However, TrainingPeaks currently applies equal and opposite adjustments for equal up/down grades. That means if you climb and descend the same hill, NGP will be the same as if you just ran flat. That's incorrect. In the real world, if you run up a 6% grade, you burn more energy than the energy you save running down a 6% grade.

                          I would like to see a much more accurate NGP calculation, as this would help the…

For users with devices without barometric altimeters this step is currently needed to get useful elevation data.

                              • Workout builder based on distance

                                I was excited about the new workout builder but disappointed and confused when I was told that workouts specified in distance and % FTP intentionally do not estimate TSS and that I must use duration. Well as a runner pace and distance are how my workouts are structured. Intervals are commonly specified in 100s of meters and other distance runs like tempo are specified in miles.

                                Distance == pace * duration , it seems a trivial feature to support given you support duration. I've been using a spreadsheet to estimate TSS but the process is tedious. WB would make this…

                                • Add annotation to performance manager chart

                                  It would be fantastic if, on the calendar, you could add an annotation that shows up on your performance manager chart. The button would go in the 'Add Other' next to metrics. Pick the start day and end day of the annotation and enter text. The result will that your manager chart has the annotations noted with the appropriate dates.

                                  This will allow an athlete to recall what they were doing at a period of time. They could annotate when they were tapering, or sick, or pushing for a PR, or whatever.

                                      From user, paraphrased:
                                      I've got quite an arsenal of running shoes, and I would like to be able to re-order the list of shoes alphabetically or by brand.

                                      It would also be nice to be able to hide retired shoes from the list. I don't want to delete the record, because that would also remove the history from my workouts.

                                        Add weather station data... there are several existing weather stations, where you can get the weather information for a workout...

                                        • Put comment flags on workouts

                                          Right now, comment flags are all bunched together in the Notifications box at the top of the screen. This can be confusing and require a lot of clicking if there are a lot of comments to go through.

                                          It'd be much more helpful if the comment notification icon appeared on the workout where the comment was posted. That way, a quick look at the Calendar would be all that's required to see where comments were posted.

                                          It'd especially be helpful to coaches that have a lot of athletes to keep track of if comment flags were within the athlete profile…
