Notes To Share with Athlete (Athlete Notes) and Notes to Share with Group (Group notes) allow the coach and/or group manager to share important information to the athlete(s) and group(s). The notes show up in the VIEW NOTES section on the Athlete's calendar and in the COACH'S NOTES section on workout results email that the coach receives.
The NOTES SECTION is a good place to provide Information to the athlete that is not workout related. Below are a few examples on how to use this section:
- Athlete upcoming races
- Athlete paces
- Athlete's Personal Best
- Links to Directions for training or meeting spots
- Notes about the coaching group or group manager
- Links to files shared on Google, Dropbox, or box.net

Coach Note (In a workout)
When you add a workout to the athlete calendar you can add a note specific to the workout that the athlete will see when they view the workout. This is a good place for additional instruction specific to the athlete. For example, workout is a 4 mile run and the athlete is recovering from an injury - add a Coach Note telling the athlete to take it easy, not to push it.
Activity Feed Comment or Message
You can send a message or comment on a workout in the Activity Feed. Sending a message to an athlete or commenting on a workout will send an email to the athlete. This is 2-way communication as the athlete can respond to the comment and/or message and you will receive an email with their response. An easy way to communicate and keep a record of the conversation.
Note: You may also send a message to your entire coaching group in the Activity Feed.
