Locally Stored Chat Logs

I coach a local youth racing program. Because of COVID we have now moved mostly to Zwift.

There is an abundance of messaging during the rides, usually me giving instructions and lessons…

Our club takes messaging between adults and the kids very seriously, so I was wondering if it would be possible to have chat logs from users in meet-up events stored locally to protect both the kids and coaches.


Hi @Alan_Dempsey

I don’t know what you want to do with the chat log, but you can find the Chat in your Log.txt file

Just search Search for “Chat”

[6:08:01] ANT  : Rx Fail on channel 1

[6:08:01] Chat: Duck 62546 (World): G’day from Sydney 😎

[6:08:02] ANT  : Transfer Completed.

I think one downside of this is that you only see chat from riders within a certain distance, as far as I recall.

Assuming that’s true, any one person might not see or have a log of everything that’s said.

Also, text files are trivial to manipulate.

Good points @Daren, might be better to use facebook messenger or some other message app that can keep a more secure record of it and have all club members disable group chat in Zwift.

Speaking of which, isn’t it disabled anyway for kids accounts? Maybe I made that up.
