TDA Start Training

Post by mottyd5 » Sat Sep 29, 2018 4:34 pm

I am a new user to this software so sorry for the "look silly" questions but I could not find any manual for these:
1. Do I have to subscribe also in order to get the free features? if yes how do I do it.
2. I can not really find the most basic thing after installing, connection the trainer and so on, how do I start training, for example for a self workout I created or for a public workout. Where is the start training button???

You don't have to pay to use free features, but you do need a cloud account. The PDF describes how to do this.

Thanks, I went through this document and I have the cloud account. If I download a free video just for test I have a start training button, but if I just choose a public type of training or even create my own one no START TRAINING button.

Sorry, I may have misled you. Look at features on the following page. Items marked with * require a paid subscription.

Thanks again,
OK I paid for the premium program. Still don't see how to start a training.
I do the following:
- Go to the cloud.
- Go to workouts.
- Go to public workouts.
- Pick a workout.
and now what? how do I start it?

Still nothing?
At the moment, I'm doing it like this:
- Go to the cloud.
- Go to workouts.
- Go to public workouts.
- Pick a workout. (so far the same as mottyd5)
- MARK it as FAVORITE.
- Go to the TDA.
- Select appropriate type of activity (GPS/VIDEO/WORKOUT).
- Filter "favorite".
- Find the desired activity.
- Open it and start it.

A real pain in the a**... The TDA/cloud is absolutely terrible. Have some more issues - such as "phantom" activities (started to use the trainer on Dec 28, the number of activities on dashboard is more than double of the real, with some activities somewhere in the 20017, number of km does not correspond to the total km of the registered activities etc.) and other... I really hope they'll fix these soon. If not, I'm switching to some other payed app (Zwift, maybe:)...
