There are several tools to share information with your athletes through TrainHeroic, like images, videos, text, and hyperlinks.
While we do NOT support sharing file attachments or PDFs through in-app messaging, it's likely that you can still share the information in your PDF with your athletes using some of the tools mentioned above.
Let's dive in!
- What kind of information are you sharing?
- Use a Google Doc Hyperlink
- Create custom metrics for feedback in-app
- Use TH Chat to personalize communication
What kind of information are you sharing?
First, consider what content you're sharing.
For example, are you sharing a general disclaimer that could be posted on your personal website, like this one here?
Are you sharing a custom questionnaire to gather insight on past training experience, injuries, or feedback on your coaching? Might this be better facilitated in a conversational format through TH Chat direct message?
The kind of information that you're sharing can determine the best method for using TrainHeroic to communicate with your athletes!
Use a Google Doc Hyperlink:
In the instance that you need to share a complete document, you will be able to create a Google Doc, and drop a hyperlink into any text field within a programmed session, session comments, or direct and group messaging.
The link below will walk you through creating a Google Document:
Once you've created a Google Doc or Sheet, you'll simply copy the link in your URL address bar, and paste it into a text field in TrainHeroic.
Pro Tip: We recommend using bitly.com to shorten your hyperlink.
Create Custom Metrics for Feedback In-app:
If you're looking to collect information on nutrition, hydration, or body weight, consider programming this directly into their session.
While "Exercise" blocks are typically prescriptive for a movement, you can also use them to collect data on other metrics, like bodyweight, hydration, or nutrition.
For example, tracking hydration as an Exercise, might look something like this:
Use TH Chat to Personalize Communication:
If you're welcoming incoming athletes, consider sending them a welcome message through TH Chat, where you'll be able to use:
- text-like messaging for instant feedback
- record and upload videos
- take and upload photos
- use emojis, reactions, and GIFs
You'll be able to direct message athletes for private conversations around any potential training adaptations, training goals, injuries, etc. TH Chat is a personalized way to receive feedback from your athletes.
