A training plan can be assigned to your athletes and all plan items will appear in their training calendars.

There are several ways to assign a plan.

In the context menu for the plan line select "Assignments":

OR in the plan constructor click on the "Assign" icon [3].

In the plan assignment window you need to set:
General params of the plan

  • 1 - An athlete or athletes, in whose calendars plan items should appear,
  • 2 - Assignment mode, which determines the method of assignment dates calculation. You can select assignment in the plan dates or in the item (events, activities, competitions) dates. A block with dates calculation [5] in the assignments card will help you to choose the mode you need.
  • 3 - Start date and end date of assignment. Date selection will help you to apply the plan either starting from a specific date or till a specific date.
  • 4 - Set a date:
Date Description
Plan start date The first day of the week starting from which the plan items will appear in the athlete's calendar
First item date Date of the first plan item displayed in the athlete's calendar. It differs from the plan start date if the first activity is planned not on the first day of the week
Last item date Date of the last plan item displayed in the athlete's calendar. It differs from the plan end date if the last activity is planned not on the last day of the week
Plan end date The last day of the week in the athlete's calendar when the training plan will end
  • 5 - block with dates calculation, to help you check the correctness of the assignment dates.

  • For a dynamic plan, you can also set the "Transfer plan changes" attribute if it is required to transfer plan changes to the assigned athletes.

Important features of the plan assignment:

  1. Activities from the plan cannot be created on the past dates in athlete's calendars. If you set such dates so that all plan activities or part of them are assigned on the past dates, then they won't appear in the athlete's calendar.
  2. Dynamic plan with changes transfer can be assigned only on the plan dates. If you set different assignment dates, then plan changes won't be transferred to athletes.
  3. Changes made in activities which have happened in the past are not transferred to athletes. In case if in a dynamic plan assigned with changes transfer you make changes in the activity happened yesterday, then such changes won't be transferred to athletes.

Remove assignment

In the assignments window you can always track to whom and when the plan has been assigned:
