Training Report Generator (Read 77 times)


Interval Junkie --Nobby

    Okay, this could go down the road of customization hell, but there's some low-hanging fruit here that might bridge the gap.

     

    It would be nice to have a push-button Training Report generated for you for a certain date-range that you could print out.  The report generator would ask you for a date-range, and which fields you'd like to include.  It would also have you select from a few graphs.

     

    The current "Reports" feature is close, but lacks a few things that would put icing on the cake:

     

    • Export the "Search" results as a TSV file (this gets you 90% of the way there)
    • Allow for selection of fields to include specific to the report you are generating.  Right now you can customize the fields displayed, but they affect all reports including the "Workouts" tab default search.
    • Provide optional Weekly summaries of Mileage, Pace, Hrs as a break-line between Search results.  That is, after listing all workouts M-Su, provide a line that sums the requested columns, or averages them where appropriate.
    • Provide for export of the report as a PDF
    • Allow selections of graphs from the "Graphs" feature to be added to the PDF.
    • Allow adding of your "notes" field to the report, either as full text, or N-characters of truncated text, or as a block of text under the workout row.

    The idea would be this: you want a quick report that summarizes what your training has been like to review with a Coach (or someone pretending to be a coach).

    2014 Goals:  sub-3 Marathon 

    Current Status 11/10: Back to building up miles.  Junk feels mostly okay.  Kinda.

      This, +1. Would be nice not to have to copy and paste into my weekly emails to my coach! :-)

        Excel spreadsheet or Crystal Reports would be a better option than the Adobe PDF....more flexible for the user to do whatever the heck they want with report/data.

        There is only one acceptable pace...all out suicide...

        ...and today is a good day to die!
