I finally started using my Zwift beta membership. Thanks for admitting me! I’m having lots of fun.
Thing is, I can’t find any documentation, so I’m just chock full of questions.
Someone gave me a “ride on” award. What does it mean? I guess it’s just a thumbs up. I can see their names, but I can’t find a way to view their profiles or friend them, or follow them. Or send a message back. How do I do that?
How can I draft? I can catch up to another rider, but I either end up passing them or they take off. It’s very difficult to get my speed just right.
How do I know if I’m successfully drafting? Is there an icon or marker on the screen that shows me I’m getting a benefit?
When I’m going for a sprint, how do I know what distance remains? I see the distance markers for the last 300 meters, but what about the rest of the way? How long is the sprint? How long is the hill climb?
Is there a way to steer?
Where can I find a list of commands? Looks like I can press numbers to switch camera angles. What else can I do?
When I finish a ride, I see my current stats and my “best”. Funny thing is, after three rides, I haven’t set any “bests”. Each of the fields shows double dashes, like “–”. How do I set a best?
Is a history of my times on the sprints available? Maybe I’m getting better, or maybe not. How would I tell?
The viewer lets the sun set and it gets dark. That’s neat, but I’d like to disable it because the lighting in my workout room isn’t so great and the lack of contrast makes everything hard to see. Is there a way to disable ambient light in the game?
When I coast, I can’t hear my freewheel. That would be nice!
If I hook up a microphone, am I able to voice chat with other riders?
After a workout, I see a graph with my power distribution and a couple of other graphs. That’s awesome, but I can’t revisit that graph after my rides. How do I find it?
If I stop riding, I end up at the “pause” screen. I poke the “done” button, and I save my ride. When I press “save”, the app disappears. It sure would be nice to have a message saying that my ride was saved – I was terrified that I lost data.
Sorry if these are feature requests – I don’t mean to be demanding, but I can’t find any help screens that show me around.
