Big new features for the New Year

Rss_icon

Posted by Steve R on 21 January 2013 at 10:26 AM

With the start of New Year, we thought it a good time to do a bit of restyling of the site - we hope you like it.

If you have a browse around the site, hopefully you'll notice some great new changes. Our aim is to make all the interesting questions, discussions and guides easier to find and thus giving you the fitness information you need as quickly as possible. We have also added some new features: 

  • New layout on Sports hubs, Tribes and Challenges - these pages are now easier to navigate and, quite frankly, look awesome!

Cycling Sports Hub Tribesports

  • New activity feeds to Tribes and Sports - just like you have on your home page and in Challenges. This will surface the great content happening in those Tribes and Challenges, making it easier for you to see what has been going on since your last visit. There are also now filters in place to link you to relevant Challenges from Tribes within the same sport:

  • You can now ask questions, start discussions and post training data straight into Tribes and Challenges - making it easier to get the answers to all your sporting queries and share your training! Before asking a question, search in the search bar to see if it's been asked before - the answer may already be onsite.

Question asking in Challenge

  •  Tags are in place to link content throughout the site - as seen in the example above, the pull up sets question is tagged with 'Pull ups', 'Advice', 'Sets' and 'Reps', clicking on tags will take you through to all related content on the tag. (At the moment you can't add Tags to content already created, but we're working on that!)

Like all changes of this nature, our aim is to make some great improvements to the site. However, do feedback if you think something is working in a way that makes your experience whilst using the site poorer - that's not what we want! Please send all feedback to team@tribesports.com and we will do everything that we can to make your experience the best it can be!

Future improvements coming in the next few months:

Next up we're making improvements to activity feeds to ensure that you see more of the awesome posts relevant to your interests and the people that you follow, and that your major achievements don't get lost in the daily hubbub of the site!

We're also making a lot of improvements to the way you can add data (like a run) across a number of Challenges, automatically updating your activity to the range of Challenges you are taking (including those team Challenges we know you love!).

Finally, look out for the new 'Favouriting' function, this will allow you to create lists of things you've noticed across the site to refer back to, plus help you manage your Challenges - like a VIP list for activities!

As always, we really hope that you enjoy the new improvements to the site.

    I love the new layout.... but when I open one of my challenges to update, I no longer see the tabs "Recent Activity" and "your updates" (like you have in the picture above) This makes it hard to look back to see how many days/reps I last input. Am I just not seeing it, or is it gone?

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130323132417-karenf5

    I agree Andy, and you can no longer add fitness and exercise reps and all of my training data is gone... I already emailed about this.

    Andy D and Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20121214001743-andyd1

    not to pester... but it looks like the option to update exercises in the log (# of crunches, lunges etc...) is missing too. I don't envy you guys the undertaking of revamping a site this size. Good job!

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130531153825-shippas

    I didn't see the problem with logging , hopefully that can be fixed. Looks nice though

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20131122040327-janeh

    Steve, when I click on the + icon to see additional challenges members have taken on the home page, the text is illegible (overwritten). I hope you can work out what I mean!

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20131122040327-janeh

    Or, the information doesn't drop down at all

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130807080211-steve

    Thanks Jane - it's loading at the top of feed and is not legible as you say. We're fixing immediately - thanks

    Jane H and Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20140225175002-nyy1b23

    Quick glance, it looks good! Thanks for investing into improvements for TS! Your work is appreciated.

    Rebecca R and Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130807080211-steve

    @janeh - that is now fixed. @ajh1905 - thanks for reporting - the title is wrong - we'll change it to Takers, and we will reorder it so it is most recent takers at the top of the list which should be more useful too. Anchoring to your updates - will see what tech can do! Cheers guys!

    Andy H and Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20140727192212-addz360

    sounds good - now about to give it a look

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20140727192212-addz360

    same problem as after the last update, how can i view all my challenges on 1 page like before? it splits mine over 13 pages now so i cant use CTRL F to search through them etc.. i kinda prefered the challenge layout how it was before as it was much easier to scroll down and see what i had outstanding.

    20140119213819-joanne28

    I do agree with Addz about the challenge page. It's much easier to just scroll down through them especially if you have a slow connection like I used to (dial up in the 21st century!?!?).

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130807080211-steve

    @addz360 and @joanne28 - we've just made a fix/change to the Your Challenges page so you can search across all pages of it (your CTRL F), and add up to 200 results if you want to simply browse. The page is also (I hope, helpfully) ordered by the Challenges you last took or interacted within. Hope that's better? e.g. http://tribesports.com/users/steve/challenges

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20121214001743-andyd1

    @steve you guys are rockin' it today!!! Thanks for running a great site!

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20140806163630-brendad

    @steve. I 'am just after deleting that question. Thought I was blind or something. Thanks for that!!!!!!

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130502134219-dwightw

    Looking great so far TS! Already seeing some wonderful improvements and looking forward to seeing the other features you are planning!! Keep up the great work!!!

    Eunice Y and Helene C encouraged this.

    20131122040327-janeh

    Hi Steve, I went to edit a challenge I had made (actually an event that is an organized run and the distance has since been increased). I can't seem to be able to edit the original challenge now.

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20160915021056-shelenova

    Thanks Steve! The changes look great! I was in a bit of a panic earlier today when i logged on to add my data quickly ..so decided to do it at night when i had time to navigate through...So far everything seems to flow with such eas...Thanks again! Always a great job...

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130215022424-shawn1340

    Could we have a new Activity type of "Elliptical" or "Cross-Trainer" added please? I want to track those miles apart from running or walking.

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20130215022424-shawn1340

    This would be on the Post Training Data tab and show up in the Activity section of our profiles.

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20161031211235-helent

    Love the new features, and that you can search your own challenges from your challenges page now :D

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20131122040327-janeh

    Thanks Steve, I see it now and have amended the event, cheers :)

    Eunice Y encouraged this.

    20151105121714-euniceyeo

    Thank you so much TS's team for the great effort you guys putting in!! Truly appreciate it :))

    Helene C encouraged this.

    20130215022424-shawn1340

    One other comment about the home page layout. It would be better to have the three sections, New Posts, New Blogs etc appear above the My Tribes, My Sports sections. I like seeing the new stuff a the top right better.

    Andy H encouraged this.

    20140723224909-justinbt

    Good job guys, great new features! Though I do have to agree with Andy above, I always liked encouraging those who took my challenges...

    20130401020749-carolb

    So confused! This will take some time getting used to. I cannot find things... also I have referenced the "How To" section in so many challenges, but now that has changed to "Guides"... I I'll figure it out eventually... just frustrated for now. :\

    20130401020749-carolb

    Challenges - used to be able to search through them. I cannot find the search bar

    20130402084156-o4life

    Up-dates used to include also when someone took the challenge, now it doesn't, would be good to get these back again.

    20130215022424-shawn1340

    Carol, use the search bar found a tth top of any page then filter the results using the radio buttons on the left.

    Brenda D and Carol B encouraged this.

    20140518180806-sarahvdv

    Just a little question... Am I the only one who can't see people's bio? I mean, I go to the user's page, everything's okay, but when the bio is too long, I click on "view full bio" and then there's a blank page. Not entirely sure it's related to the update however...

    Helene C encouraged this.

    20140119213819-joanne28

    No Sarah, you're not the only one. I could see them before though.

    Sarah V encouraged this.

    20140119213819-joanne28

    While we're on a roll, don't mean to pester or anything but, my position on the leaderboard is two different when I look at my profile to when I look at the actual leaderboard. It doesn't take much to confuse me and that was more than enough.

    20130807080211-steve

    This is unrelated to changes this week @joanne28 - however a fix will be up this Friday. Sorry for any inconvenience

    20130402084156-o4life

    Thanks forgetting these changes done so quick Steve

    20131203073022-ltwolff

    Really enjoying TS! Thanks for the constant attention to the site! Love the updates.

    Cags R encouraged this.

    20160222080259-alex45674

    Loving the site and the changes - look forward to the next update too. One thing I liked which seems to have disappeared - when my rank changed, say when I completed a challenge, a little green box appeared and told me so, but that doesn't happen anymore. It was quite a nice little motivator. Any chance that could come back please? Apart from that BRILLIANT!

    20150117133037-katen

    Well done TS team for not resting on your laurels, and taking the site onwards and upwards.

    20130401020749-carolb

    Getting used to the new changes.... the changes really help with managing a challenge and a tribe... I like that all the tribe posts show up at the main page. Some of the links in my individual activity feed take me to the wrong place.... not sure what that is about. And when I post, somthing weird happens to the text box... it gets gigantic. Overall... now that I'm getting used to them, I love the changes.
