New 'My Dashboard' & Profile Updates

We are excited to announce the availability of several new features within BodySpace.  As of yesterday, users now have an all-new My Dashboard page.  In addition to this new page, we have also released key updates to a user's profile page and made significant updates to the navigation within BodySpace.

The new My Dashboard has a fresh new look and provides all new functionality including an increased emphasis on setting, measuring progress towards, and achieving goals.  As you can see from the screen shots below, the user will be able to quickly see their progress towards their weight goal, see how many days are remaining until their goal expires and see how much weight they need to gain or lose in order to reach their goal.  The user will also receive encouragement to set a goal if they haven't set one yet, or be reminded to set a new goal if their current goal is expired.

BodySpace Updates


BodySpace Updates

This new page also includes an updated progress photo module, enhanced charts, a view into your latest BodyStat measurements including the change since the last update and workout tracker summary data with a quick link into the workout tracker.  The new My Dashboard page will also now utilize the new 'What My Friends Are Up To' information so users will have a consistent experience with member updates when looking at the BodySpace main page, a user's profile page or their own Dashboard page.

Lastly, this release also includes several updates to the navigation within BodySpace.  Four new pages have been added to support adjusting the navigation to make items more logically organized and easier for our users to find.

Thanks,

David McLean
Community Product Owner

Latest Improvements Announcement

We are happy today to announce two (2) major feature improvements as well as some bug fixes.  


UPDATED NEWS FEEDS:


First, the updated news feed system that went live yesterday in BodySpace provides an enriched view of what users are up to throughout the community including pictures, preview text for various items and contextual links that take you directly to the action the user performed and paves the way for us to add more new items to these updates in the future.


Below is a sample comparison of what the news feed section looked like previously vs. what it now looks like today:


Before:


Before

After:


After

After

Some items to note:



  1. This updated news feed will only appear on the BodySpace main page and on every user's profile page.

  2. My Dashboard, BodyGroups and the mobile applications will continue to use the existing system and user interface.  As a result, the two systems will look slightly different until such a time as My Dashboard and BodyGroups have the new system incorporated into them.

  3. New Feed Items - we have added an updated news feed item to so show when two or more users are now friends (this will only appear in the new system).

  4. We have removed several feed items including 'Joined a School network', 'Left a Gym or School Network' and 'Left a BodyGroup.'  These items will not appear in the new system, however they will still appear on the My Dashboard and BodyGroup pages.  Please note:  Only the news feed item for the above have been removed.  The actual feature is unchanged.

  5. The updated system is new.  Data from the current system was not be moved into the new system.  As a result, some user's that had data in the "What 'username' is up to" section may be empty, depending on when their last update was made.  The engine that works behind the scenes has been collecting data since the end of March to help make as smooth a transition as possible from the current system to the new system.

BUG FIXES:


In addition to this release, several bug fixes have been made to BodyBlogs to help reduce and hopefully eliminate the occurrence of users receiving an error when they try to post a blog, or have BodyBlogs application act like they are not logged in. 


There were bug fixes made to the core of BodySpace as well including issues where certain users were getting the dreaded "Oops" message when trying to get to their profile page.


UPDATED WORKOUT TRACKER:


Secondly, this afternoon (May 16, 2012) marks the launch of the new and improved Workout Tracker!


As a result, the existing Workout Tracker (WT) will be unavailable and we expect the downtime to last between 2-6 hours. Workout Tracker users will be redirected to a downtime page (see example image below).   All other areas of the site, including BodySpace, will remain available and unaffected.



The new Workout features the following benefits for you:



  • Ability to Track A Workout

  • Ability to Track A Workout from a Template

  • Ability to Build a Workout with personal details tips and notes

  • View and edit your complete and incomplete Workout Logs

  • View  Workout Templates

  • Existing workouts will be migrated so no data will be lost


The New WT also features a fantastic exercise finder, you can now:



  • Filter/search exercises based on the name of the exercise

  • Filter based on the muscle you would like to work

  • Filter based on how the exercise is rated

  • Filter based on the equipment you plan to use.


You can also:



  • Add additional sets for an exercise

  • Input ranges not only for strength but also for your cardio, stretching, and plyo exercises

  • Edit your existing workouts


    • Too tired to finish entering your workout details? You can go back and finish incomplete workouts at a later date

  • Add or remove exercises from a Workout

  • Watch videos on how to do your exercise of choice or use your use unfamiliar equipment

  • View your success overview page and have a snapshot of what you’ve accomplished, including your total weight lifted for all tracked workouts

If you experience any issues with these new features, please submit a feedback report here:

Thank you all for your patience while we continue to upgrade the BodySpace user experience!  :) 


5/17 UPDATE: The new Workout Tracker is taking longer to deploy than anticipated, but will be out today! Thanks again for your patience.
