I have ridden Zwift on Sundays and those rides counted toward the weekly goal that was about to end. Last night I rode and it counted toward the new week. When does Zwift reset weekly goals?
It’s Monday thru Sunday for my week, but I’m unsure of the actual time it changes. I would imagine it is midnight on Sunday if your time zone settings are correct.
That’s what I thought too. I finished my ride between 7 and 8 pm last night (Sunday). Surprised that my weekly goal for miles didn’t go off during the ride I checked the weekly activity and only my ride last night was reflected in the weekly goals, which I interpreted as the week reset.
Perhaps the Zwift servers/settings only hold that value as GMT? Just a guess…
I don’t know the answer to that, other than I don’t think it’s localised.
So it’s probably Pacific time (8 hours behind GMT).
For me, I think that means 8am on a Monday morning.
Very well could be, but I don’t think I’ll be testing this theory at 3am (my time)…
I don’t think it’s Pacific time. I am in CDT timezone and the week restart happened for me by Sunday night at around 8:30 pm. Midnight at GMT sounds very possible given when I did my ride.
I mean, GMT would make most sense, but I’ve never got the impression that’s when things happen. I live in the GMT time zone, and I’m sure there have been times when things happened out of sync with that.
Either way, whether it’s PST or GMT, I think it’s one of those. If you’re in a different time zone, it’ll roll over before or after midnight. Which isn’t something that people would inherently assume.
I think it somewhere around 6pm EST for me, but don’t quote me.
To add to the confusion my Weekly Distance goal reset a few hours before my Weekly Time goal. very strange that they don’t reset at the same time.
Probably implemented by different programmers.
I think @Eric_Schlange_ZI knows when the week starts, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it posted in some of his articles.
I’ve never actually tested it! No idea.
Time to get to work then
Seem like we are all doing some test this weekend.
I suspect that the system will use either your ride start time or end time to declare which “week” you’re in. So, if I think it changes at midnight and I rode for 4 hours from 10pm until 2am, then my 4 hour ride would show up either on the closing week or the new week, but not 2 hours for previous week and 2 hours for new week.
That theory being placed, I would simply do small rides every hour with logging in and out in between rides to witness the week change.
We could all lose a bit of sleep attempting these tests! I say Gerrie goes first…
I was just planning to watch when it reset to zero.
I asked our Game team. The game app uses your local time zone as defined by the computer it’s running on. The week starts at 00:00 hour Monday, which is to say midnight of Sunday night > Monday morning.
Interesting. I’m absolutely sure I’ve found that not to be the case with some systems. Maybe it’s changed over the years. Or I’m just old.
I will check on Sunday, but I have seen the distance goal reset late afternoon.
you are definitely old
