Companion App - Workout Screen Empty

I’ve downloaded several custom workouts but when I use them, the workout screen on the companion app is empty, the screen is there but has appears to have no knowledge of the workout I’m doing.

Any ideas ? I’ve even downloaded some of the workouts again to check they weren’t missing something.

Is the Zwift Companion App and the device you are running Zwift on both on the same network? 

Yes… the rest of the screens are fine, map, zwifters etc… just the workout screen

Within the Zwift app you are using Workout mode or are you doing workouts will using Just Ride. Where did you get the custom workouts from?

I chose the workout in the dropdown before starting to ride… I downloaded it from…

…and copied it to my documents/zwift/workouts folder


I have used the new workout tab twice since it’s inauguration and it worked fine but yesterday, I too, had the blank workout screen.  The only thing that was accurate was time in blocks.  everything was black but i could see the time of the blocks run down.
