New Feature: Latest Progress Photos

Another quick update to announce another new feature. Last week we added a Progress Photo feature on the profile pages.

The Progress Photo feature allows you to upload photos and tag them with your weight and date. Privacy settings allow you to display photos publicly, only to users logged into the traineo community, only to your motivators / contacts, or just yourself. It's a great tool to visualize your progress so if you haven't logged in and added a photo give it a shot...it's an extremely powerful motivational tool.

We've seen some great Before and After threads in the forums so we wanted to combine the concepts with a new public gallery of 'Latest Progress Photos'. You'll find this link in the Community drop-down - here you'll find a gallery of the latest progress photos from traineo users (only of users who've set their privacy settings accordingly).

We hope you find this a great motivational asset to the site. Let us know what you think and check out the Latest Progress Photos right here.

New Feature: Forum Topic Subscriptions

It looks like everyone is enjoying the forums and sharing more tips, advice, and mutual support than ever! Great job.

With the increase in forum activity we've been working on some tools to allow you to keep track of hot forum topics. Our first one is a simple subscription toggle that allows traineo to ping you via email whenever a topic is updated:

At the top of each topic you'll now see a check-box with 'Notify me by email when someone replies to this topic' next to it. Just click the box and traineo will subscribe you to the topic.

We hope this improves the forum experience. Please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions!

New Feature: Progress Photos

We hope you're enjoying the warmer weather (if you're in the Northern Hemisphere or not here in Boston!).

The traineo team has been working hard on a number of great features. I'm happy to announce we've just released 'Progress Photos'.

You'll now see a Progress Photos tab on your profile page and on the Profile drop down in the navigation bar. This will allow you to upload a photo and tag it with a date and weight (traineo will auto-populate the weight based on the date based on your profile data...you can override this of course). Your gallery of Progress Photos can be viewed by various types of users based on privacy settings.

So go ahead, start uploading as many photos as you like and document your lifestyle change with traineo!

As always we're keen to get your feedback on this one so let us know what you think and if you have any suggestions.

We're looking forward to seeing all of your photos.

New Feature: Filtered Forum Navigation

Hi Everyone!

We've been noticing increased activity in the forums and community and we think it's great!

To give things an extra boost we've improved the navigation in the forums so that all of you can continue to share motivation and support with one another more easily. We hope you like it. As always, we are here to help make it easier for you to reach your health & fitness goals.

The new feature will let you browse between forum categories more logically and allows you to filter between streams of posts in our categories for Motivation, Diet, Exercise...check it out in action at the community forum homepage.

Please continue to give us your feedback on how our improvements are working. This is your community so please feel free to reach out and offer us any suggestions or comments.

Thank you!
