SportyPal Events – New Feature Soon Available on SportyPal.com

September 26, 2012

This past month we’ve been busy working on our new web feature called SportyPal Events. So, what’s the idea behind it?

Well, you know how often you like to gather with your sport buddies and do a tour by bike, a hike on the nearby mountain or just a walk in the park. And, you have to tell them the time, the place, where you’ll be going, how long will it take and that can be very exhausting if told to 5 or more people. SportyPal Events will solve that.

You’ll be able to set a starting time, date, place and a map, invite your friends directly or by email. Even more, you can choose from existing tracks or workouts and set that as an event track.

SportyPal Events will be available on Monday, October 1st on SportyPal.com. Be sure to check it out.

Workout lists revamped on sportypal.com

December 1, 2011

In the past few days we made a couple of important updates to the way we display workout lists on sportypal.com to address most of the suggestions from our users. It’s one of the most visited pages (our users see it every time they log in to the site), so we decided to add some useful features and fix a couple of annoyances.

First and foremost, indoor workouts are no longer shown on a separate page. Instead, all of your workouts – both indoor and outdoor – are now shown in the “Workouts” page.

Indoor workouts are shown with the usual barbell icon as a workout type. Because indoor workouts have no GPS data, they have no “Track” icon. Instead, they have their name which is shown below the workout’s date:

Image

You may also notice the “Extras” column. It contains icon indicators which tell you if the workout has a certain feature: currently, heart rate data or a track. Outdoor workouts now have 2 privacy settings: one for the workout itself, and an optional stricter one for the location on a map.

Image

You can create an indoor or an outdoor workout by using the tabs “New Outdoor Workout” and “New Indoor workout” in this section:

Image

To reflect this merge, the workout type filter has also been revamped to have both indoor and outdoor types. Unlike the previous filter, now  you can select multiple workout types at the same time. It’s also smarter – it doesn’t show workout types which you haven’t used in the selected date range.

Image

Speaking of the date range, there are now two ways to change it: either by clicking the down-arrow and changing the slider points or by clicking directly on the dates and picking a date using the calendar.

Image

At the end of the list there are some new extra totals now: distance time and calories. These stats change live as you change the date, type and tags filter:

Image

Last but not least, the tags filter has received an important update: it suggests the tags you’ve used in the workouts as you type. Also you can now enter multiple tags separated with a comma:

Image

Additionally, this update will allow us to make the page size expandable soon.

Edit: And here it is: the long awaited expanded page size. You can now toggle between viewing 5 or 10 workouts per page.

We hope that you like the additions and changes that we made to this page. Stay tuned for more.

New Community page now online

August 19, 2011

SportyPal’s Community page has received a massive overhaul. You can now see a list of public workouts and tracks made by users close to you and comment on them or give them a Thumbs-Up. You can now view the overall top 10 as well as a top 10 for the last 30 days for both your country and the world. You can also view your list of SportyPal friends here. Also, each user now has a profile page that other users can view, offering more than the standard workouts list page.

Please make sure that your privacy settings are up to date.

SportyPal Summer Competition is on!

July 13, 2011

If you’ve visited sportypal.com lately, you may have noticed that a new SportyPal competition has started. Click the banner below to enter the competition:

SportyPal Summer Competition

We’re giving away 5 Sony Ericsson XP110 experience packs, 3 SE MW660 Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headsets, and 10 one-year SportyPal Pro subscriptions. Once signed in, to get a chance to win one, all you have to do is make and upload workouts from now until September 21. Each public upload grants you competition tickets, and each ticket increases your chances of winning.

Some of you have been asking why you don’t seem to have any tickets, even though you’ve signed in and have been uploading workouts. For a workout to count towards your competition points, you need to set its visibility level to “Everyone”. Also, to prevent abuse, GPX uploads won’t get you any competition tickets.

To set the default visibility level for new workouts, go to My Profile -> Privacy options, select “Everyone” in the “My workouts can be seen by” box, and click the Save Preferences button.

To set the visibility level for workouts that have already been uploaded, open the workouts list, mark the workouts for which you would like to change the visibility levels, click the Privacy button and select Everyone from the “Share with” pop-up box.

Good luck!
