Deleting Workout Type (Read 42 times)

    Eric,

     

    I tried troubleshooting this on my own but couldn't fix it.

     

    Under my Run activities, I have a workout type named "Other" that I can't delete.  I've run a report (and even downloaded my entire log into Excel so I could sort the workouts), and I can't find any past workouts labelled "Other".  Can you delete it?

      Julia -- you can't delete the default workout types, if you do they get re-created by the log.  Other is one of the defaults. (run,bike,swim,other off the top of my head).

      Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

        I thought about that but I went into some other people's logs and I don't see "Other" as an option under "Run"...  In case that's not clear what I'm talking about, I went into random people's logs, clicked on "Reports", then "New Search".  Under "Workout Info" I selected "Run" as the "Activity".  In the "Workout Type" drop-down, "Other" is not listed in some of their logs.  For example, I see you have "Other - (Mix)".

         

        I was thinking the problem might be that my "Other" category used to be one of the mandatory categories that I renamed.  When I try to rename it to "Easy" for example, it says I already have that activity name even through I don't.  I use "Recovery" instead.

          I'm probably giving you bogus advice, so hopefully Eric will jump in.

           

          I went to Log -> Settings -> Manage my activities and was able to delete the Activity called 'Other'. But now I see you're discussing a workout type (which is my "Other (mix)").  The workout types are under Log -> Settings -> Manage my Activities -> click on Run -> Workout types are listed.  Which is where you are seeing the Other you can't delete.


          Sorry, bad info from me in my reply...I was solving a different "other".

            No worries.  I have a feeling I did something at some point that I shouldn't have done.  Or, Eric might be punking me.  I can't believe I would have created a category called "Other".  (Not that there's anything wrong with that.  I classifying things for a living, though, so I know I would try to find a name.)

              Hi Julia,

              The "other" workout type in your log is a built in one that I presume you renamed a long time ago, which is why you can't delete it.  It should be "Hill".

                Oh my, I am doing a little dance of joy.  Even a broken clock is right 2 times each day. On the other hand, I'm only right about anything 3-4 times per year in aggregate of all things...it is my day today for 1.

                  That makes sense.  I don't do hills.  Smile
