Update 1

User Interface Design

  • Larger year and month views to take advantage of higher resolution screens

  • Larger complete icons
  • No more bars for recovery days within programs - you’ll only see bars for the days that have required or optional activities scheduled
  • New hover view for desktops and laptops to see what you did on previous days
    • Note: We’re still exploring options for mobile and tablet devices that don’t support hovering
  • Updated completed days on the month view for better visibility of the date and notes

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed monthly activity charts that did not properly display the last day month
  • Fixed issue where legacy calendar users could not see the program workout swap button

What’s Next

Day view updates!

  • Smaller program images
  • No horizontal scrolling
  • Optimized activities list to keep the page more compact and easier to scan
  • Clearly distinguishing between required and optional workouts
  • Replacing delete workout from the day view so you don’t have to click reschedule first

We’ll be in continuous development on the calendar over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for more updates and opportunities to share more feedback.
