It's that time to begin beta testing of our new running log. It isn't completed, but the basic functionality is in place. I anticipate it moving to our server over the weekend and ready to be beta tested.<br><br><b>Who qualifies to be a beta tester?:</b><br>
1. You must be at least a 'Member of the Board' to beta test.<br>
2. Any data put into the beta version <i>may be at risk</i> - do not depend on the beta version as a reliable source yet.<br>
3. You must be willing to regularly communicate on your findings, problems, results, comments, suggestions in a forum environment.<br>
4. The basic version will be running only.<br>
5. You should be running at least 25 miles a week or logging 4 to 5 times a <b>week</b> (to get a good test of the functionality<br>
6. We'd like beta testers who use all the major browsers - when you sign up, please indicate in the pm what browser you'll be using.<br><br><b>How to be selected as a beta tester.<br></b>send me a PM stating you meet all these points. AND an email address where I can contact you. Once we get the log moved to our server and ready to test, I'll send you an email and you can then begin the process.<br><br><br><b>What to expect:</b> A beta version of a running log. This means the log is about 80% ready and you will help design and determine how the last 20% goes and where we end up.<br><br><br>
Thanks<br><br><br><br>

Right off the bat...you need to have mileage in km as well as miles..essential for all of us who do not live in the USA<br><br>
I will log in lies for the testing..but most other logs have the option to switch to metric as most of the world uses metric as their measurement <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
I allready feel like a shit disturber<br><br>
BTW I am very excited about this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

allow me to be shit-disturber #2 (heh):<br><br>
very small thing, but I added some shoes to the Shoes section this morning, then left for a run w/o logging out. I went to add another pair of shoes and the Shoes section was blank, with no buttons or clickables to add any.<br><br>
I logged out and back in again and my shoes were there, whew!<br><br>
Does the log log you out automagically after a certain period of time?

Ok...I may have turned into a technotard but<br><br>
I don't see what i've inputed anywhere on the calendar and when I click on the date it wants me to add something new.<br><br>
Chart doesn't seem to be working either.

Yep! Good point and it's on the list - I wanted to get it up enough to allow testing, but you're right - HOWEVER - Since the calculation doesn't know if you're doing miles or KM.. just enter KM for your routes - and even though it says, "Miles" - everything else will work. Once we do the first pass, we'll have a Miles/KM selection

After you add the event and click "Add Event", then it should show up on the date you've selected.<br><br>
What Browser are you using?<br><br>
(you're not a technotard - technotards would have taken a bat to the monitor)

Rich, will this be going through several versions as we test it? For instance, we can call this v.1.1 and have a thread specifically for this version. Then, when the programmers make the changes and we start testing v.1.2 we can log all subsequent issues under that heading. Make sense?

I just entered your race from yesterday - check it and see if it's there.<br><br><br><i>(patience dear - no need to use the "!" - that's why we call it beta <b>TESTING</b>) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"></i>

There's gotta be something I'm lacking on my system at work cause I get a yellow exclamation error on the bottom of my browser when trying to do it.

Browser: Mozilla Firefox v.2.0.0.11<br><br><b>ISSUES:</b><br>
First time adding an event: Added event but it did not show up on calendar. It showed up on second try.<br><br>
When adding a new event, the info from the last entry auto-populates the fields. But only some of the info. Some fields have a default. I'd rather see in the drop down menu a blank space as the default. That will be less confusing to a lot of people.<br><br>
Clicked 'Add Route'. Added info (Name, Distance). Clicked Add Route button and when it saved the screen showed remnants. See pic.<br><img alt="" src="http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u161/jillfo/KR%20Running%20Log/fragment.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
This occurred again when I clicked Edit for a route and then the save button.<br><br>
Also occurred when I edited my shoe and clicked save.<br><br>
Also occurred when adding an event to calendar.<br><img alt="" src="http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u161/jillfo/KR%20Running%20Log/calendar_remnant.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><b>NOTES:</b><br>
The Add Route and Add Shoe links are not intuitive. I'd prefer to see a button.<br><br>
Will there be maps available when adding routes? Dynamic maps where we can map out our routes and figure out the mileage?<br><br>
For shoes, would be nice if when we're adding existing shoes already with mileage we had the option to enter the current mileage, as well as cost of shoe.<br><br>
How about adding other types of events (biking, swimming, strength training)? Rest days, health notes?<br><br>
Run Type: Will we be able to add our own types? Easy run?

one quick question: when reporting bugs, would you like us to specify which browser we're using? If we use more than one, would you like us to see if the problem exists with each browser?
