Mon, 13 Mar 2017 23:51:54 EST Blog versus Feed versus Status Update Hi I'm fairly new to spark people. I can see that there are multiple way to post things: blog, feed and status. What's the difference between Blog and Feed posts? I like the idea of having a journal type blog of my pain and sufferings 😁? through diet and gym, but I seem to reach more people when I do a post in Feed. Also do status updates show up on Feed? <BR> <BR> Thank you, <BR> Anya Mon, 13 Mar 2017 16:56:33 EST Accessibility for visually impaired Sparkers OK, I've kind of stuck myself in here as a middle person, but this is really on behalf of a 100% blink Spark friend. She posted a really "down" blog earlier today, based on her inability to find things under the new format: <BR> <link><BR>urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=6331995 </link> <BR> <BR> I think BROOKLYN_BORN gave her some great advice, but so often, when technical changes happen so many of us who CAN see can't really describe well how to navig...

I lost my fitbit, and I will get another one, but will take me 10 days. <BR> <BR> In the meantime, Id like to authorize my apple to track my steps. <BR> <BR> I authorized health but cannot see any update on SparkPeople. Do I have to disconnect my fitbit? also, it says it will delete all my fitbit steps and exercise which is just crazy!

I have went to the setting for nutrition and checked off NO tufu, but it is still in the meal plan. Please help! Mon, 13 Mar 2017 11:26:00 EST Appointment Reminders I set up an appointment reminder along time ago with SP. I no longer want these reminders mailed to me how do I turn them off? Mon, 13 Mar 2017 08:53:22 EST My Nutrition - Cilantro Could SP please check the nutrition data for raw/fresh cilantro? I've check SP, other peoples findings, USDA... SP's drop down entry has nothing listed for the nutrients and cilantro is super healthy so no way it can be zero for everything vit/mineral.. Also serving sizes vs weight is confusing... 1/4 c is multiple sprigs vs grams. I ate 1/3 c tonight chopped and gently pressed into a measuring cup. It's an ingredient I use all the time by sprig, by tablespoon and by 1/4c and 1/3 cup. Than... Sun, 12 Mar 2017 22:18:44 EST app locks up on me When I try to track my fitness on my app, using the favorites tab, the app locks up and the only way I can unlock it is to completely turn off my iPad using the hard reboot to get the app working again. This has happened since your recent upgrades. This is especially frustrating because I paid extra for the premium app. Sun, 12 Mar 2017 21:03:43 EST how do I turn off Community Goal Feed How do I turn off Community Goal Feed? Sun, 12 Mar 2017 19:05:26 EST Large picture Hi <BR> <BR> One thing came to mind with the new Start page is the large size pictures loading . <BR> <BR> Really that does not take into consideration of those with a slow internet connection. <BR> <BR> Mine is fairly fast but some times I get a slow connect and I have to shutdown. I am glad to say that this doesn't happen often. <BR> <BR> Just a thought not complaint Sun, 12 Mar 2017 18:16:31 EST Unable to set new weight loss goal I chose maintenance now I am no longer able to set a new weight loss goal without "resetting" everything. Then I would loose all my info from all past years. I'm sure I will always go up and down a bit. I want to be able to see the goal when I need to lose 5 pounds to get back to goal, but I don't want to reset. Makes me frustrated. <BR> Sun, 12 Mar 2017 16:32:38 EST On Phone APP... Notifications list empty This list is the only place to find what notifications you have had since the stacking notifications was taken away. <BR> <BR> It's not working. <BR> <BR> The list says there are none. No past or current ones. <BR> <BR> And there definitely should have been some as I had many today, and 2 un-seen as a test. <BR> <BR> I have restarted the app and it didn't help. <BR> <BR> This hasn't been taken away has it? We have so little ability to keep up with our actual friends this would be insane. Sun, 12 Mar 2017 14:52:59 EST Loving the Change I just wanted to say after a storm of so many negative comments and complaints, I would like to say how much I am enjoying the change that Spark Guy and all of you worked so hard on to bring!.... For one thing I feel like I am on a chat thread and love being able to cheer people on who have reached some goals or are making good progress and strides and have been welcoming lots of newbies as well!...

(Things are slowly sinking in about the SparkPeople site changes as the days go by. Like I just realized I hadn't checked my Friend Feed since Thursday because it's only a little bitty link on what used to be "my" Start page. I actually just resorted to making a paper and pencil list to check off all the daily things I do on SP to make sure I don't miss anything.) <BR> <BR> My question - so does this mean that Spark has done away with "ranking" teams within ... Sun, 12 Mar 2017 13:31:39 EST Edit goals no longer works I want to edit my weight and food goals.

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 07:37:50 EST How do I delete teams when they do not show I know how I used to delete teams, but now when I click on teams to manage only 7 teams show up, they are the ones I want to keep. The rest of the teams are present in the section where you are supposed to be able to order them, but that function does not work on my iPad, or I would try reordering them one at a time to delete them, although that may be a long project with 70 teams to delete. Sun, 12 Mar 2017 01:48:19 EST Tracking Sodium I figured out how to add sodium as one of my nutrient goals. Is there a way that I can make it show up on my tracker so I can check it throughout the day? I see where I can see a the total and remaining when I hit Nutrition Report, but it would be nice to see it as part of the log. Sat, 11 Mar 2017 18:33:52 EST Inbox Overload--Help!

I've been getting email notices of new SPMail, but there's nothing unread in the SPMail inbox. The notices indicate senders I really do exchange mail with and seem to be dupes of the most recent incoming mail from them. The false alarms seem to occur as much as 5-7 days after receipt of the real things. <BR> <BR> Don't know if this has been widespread. Also, it just now occurs to me to ask if the notifications are genuine, but actual new mail insn't getting into m... Sat, 11 Mar 2017 11:01:12 EST App update issues Since the app updated to the new home page feed, I can't seem to get my points for logging in each day on the app. I click on it, it "spins" and always says zero points. When I go online to check, sure enough there are zero points for logging in and I have to do it on the desktop version to get the points. This is frustrating because it is easier for me to login each day on my phone and if I forget one day to get on the computer my login streak will be broken. Can someone look into fixing thi...

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 21:30:36 EST Length of Posts On Team Wall Dear Tech Support, <BR> <BR> I realize that SparkPeople is having technical difficulties today because of larger internet issues. However, prior to today, members of my Motivational Quotes of The Day club have reported their inability to post quotes of longer lengths on the team wall. Yet, I as the team leader have an ability to post longer quotes. Can someone check into this issue when the webpage is back up and running smoothly as members of my team are becoming frustrated.

It worked. I am not quite sure how to sync it with my Spark account. Do I still have to use the Syncpoint or was that only with the Spark Tracker ? It syncs with the Garmin app but after that I am not sure if I have to do something else. <BR> <BR> Any tips ? <BR> Thanks !

I was having a hard time understanding how the "all day activity" thing worked but a coach told me I could go back the day after and alter it, then a sync would not change the numbers.

I had been using my Spark Tracker but since that is obsolete now, I haven't. Is it because my Spark account thinks I am using it, I can't log things manually, if that made sense? Thanks for help!!!
