Lightning bolts- green to blue

Wondering if anyone has any insight into when lightning bolts turn blue in results? 99% of mine never turn blue, we’re talking pages of green here. How do I get them updated or finalized? Or is this even possible? It’s quite annoying seeing 1min 30sec and 15sec stats always the same.

Are your rides saved as private in Zwift? They need to be saved as public for ZwiftPower to access them IIRC

Completely open

Total guess, but I think rides sourced directly from Zwift have a green bolt, and rides from Strava have a blue bolt. When I mouse over them, green is ‘Source: livedata’ blue is ‘Source: fitfile’

Zwiftpower doesn’t get data from Strava. The green bolt is from the live Zwift feed, and the blue bolt is from the Zwift fit file.

OK, thanks for the clarification. Over time they all go blue?

Normally takes a few hours. Sometimes it doesn’t happen, especially on TTT events where you have to sit in the pen for awhile after the timer hits zero.

Ya, “normally” takes a few hours to be finalized. My issue is mine never change at all, ever. So looking at my data the numbers are all the same across, for every race I do. Not the end of the world, as I use other tools for data. It’s just very annoying.

My bolts usually turn blue within a day, although I had two rides of TOW since the 19th and those are still green.
