Having the ability to manage a club and its events in the web interface again is missing from your list. What is the status of that?

I can manage the Private Club event in the web interface…but the Club has to be your primary club in zwift and you have to create the event 1st with Companion App.

Great updates! Club workouts will be really useful after Summer.

Hi @Jesper_ZwiftHacks ,

This isn’t available to all clubs, only clubs with public events on the calendar and an approved club type on the backend that will display the web editing tools.

What club are you not able to access this from?

This is a great step forward, thank you! Question. Will we be able to import our own custom workouts eventually? this will be a much more useful tool if I’m leading a group as part of a series of workouts, the current selection of workouts don’t quite fit into a broader program which is how I see this getting used more often.

@RC_Ivany It is under discovery, so it will likely be awhile.

Does this work. I made an announcement today and checked with a few people and nobody seems to have got notified?

if you are also looking at muting notifications per club it would be great to add an extra notification setting for only mentions so that even muted if you were tagged you could get notified

mine is also the same as the above can edit on web once created in companion app

I’ve checked in with the team and it turns out push notifications are not enabled for announcements.

Thanks for flagging @Gordon_Rhino-Racing!

  • Push notifications for club chat - Done :white_check_mark:
  • Push notifications for club event creation - Done :white_check_mark:
