  3. Click outside the pop-up window and your changes will be saved. 

Information you enter here will surface in the Dashboard in the Race Reports chart.

Viewing Events in Race Report Dashboard

Use the Race Reports Dashboard chart to view your Event results. Click the event to access more information.

  1. Click the Dashboard tab above the TrainingPeaks calendar.
  2. Click the left-hand chart icon. A pane appears that lists all available charts.
  3. From the chart, select 'Race Reports' and drag into the Dashboard.
  4. Events you have added appear in the chart.
  5. Click the title of the Event and a pop-up window appears with a short summary of the Event.
  6. Click the Event Title and the Event card will appear with any additional information you may have entered, along with the Event file (assuming it was attached to the Event card)

Of Note

  • If a planned workout matching the event type of the file is already nested underneath the Event card the file will automatically athlete upload to the planned workout and turn the Event card green.
  • Once the planned-completed workout is associated with the event the same rules for compliance still apply.
  • Adding post-activity comments into the Event field does not trigger a post-workout notification email or notification in our system.  Those are only triggered by entries into the post-activity comment of a workout.
