SparkPeople Site/Technical Help Messageboard Garmin Vivofit 3 Hi, <BR> I am sorry if this has already been asked ~ couldn't find the answer on the message boards. <BR> <BR> Since our SparkTracker is obsolete (boooo !), I bought a Garmin Vivofit 3 that I added on my account. 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 ! Sun, 26 Feb 2017 19:39:04 EST Help with fitbit syncing I've always used the SparkTracker, and very sad to see it go. But I did go purchase a fitbit charge 2, and it's pretty awesome. I like the little buzz that tells me to get up and move. I am asking if anyone can direct me to a page or a person that can teach me how to sync this new fitbit up with my Spark page? <BR> <BR> Thanks!!

When I go to 'Start/Manage Spark Streaks' 3 of my 4 Streaks started in October or September of 2009. <BR> The 4th Streak doesn't "Begin" until September of 2014. When I go back through the "Other Goals" Pages, I cannot find anyplace where I missed hitting that Goal in September 2014. <BR> Is there a way to Check or Correct that? I have succeeded in hitting that Goal every day. Sat, 25 Feb 2017 19:30:37 EST PLEASE HELP NOW, RATHER THAN LATER Hi <BR> <BR> I have a problem and need help. I cannot get my real spark page.

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 12:06:39 EST Fitbit syncing I have recently synced to the fitbit flex from the SPAT. 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. It has been working fine that way for me a week or so but this morning I woke up and my whole weeks worth of calories is back! What happened? <BR> I miss the SPAT <em>46</em> <em>46</em> <em>46</em> Sat, 25 Feb 2017 08:47:10 EST Arthritis Rx Videos Not Streaming on Amazon Fire?

However, I gained weight back and now I'm on a new journey and have lost over 80lbs this year and have refound SparkPeople. YAY! However, because of my original weight in 2013, it is only showing about a 60lb loss (which is still great, but... ) Is there a way to modify the start day of my program? <BR> <BR> <BR> EDIT: I found it.... under Edit Goals.

I have tried everything I can think of - disconnecting and reconnecting the device multiple times, reauthorizing, trying to manually sync within SP (just get stuck on the "sync requested" status and nothing ever happens etc. Nothing is working. Help? Are there issues with FB/SP right ...

Wed, 1 Feb 2017 21:22:35 EST Share nutrition info with Apple Health Hello, <BR> <BR> I am newly back to SparkPeople after 5 years away. I'm loving the updates to the app, but I cannot get Apple Health to receive my nutrition info from SparkPeople.

When you click on the button to create a new exercise grouping, and you have given it a name you are taken to a new screen "Add Exercise to Grouping". I am wanting to add an exercise from my favorites list from the drop down menu. I find it, I click, on it, and it opens up a set of field values to be filled in.

Probably best on the start page, I'd like to see a daily reminder of a feature of Like , a question: "Do you ever use the RECENT MESSAGES feature on the top right your own sparkpage?" Try it soon. It makes it quick and easy to follow-up on any message you left. It is interesting to see who has commented on your message. <BR> <BR> We get in the habit of using certain features--and totally ignore lots of things to make our use of sparkpeople richer. <BR> <BR> chris Tue, 31 Jan 2017 08:05:00 EST App not saving anything Hello! I just wanted to point out I've downloaded your app yesterday. My phone is a bit slow, but I'managed to change my goals, track food and enter new food items to my list, etc. Today I've opened the app and my site account to find that nothing from what I've done yesterday has been saved on either platforms. I've simply uninstalled the app and will just keep using the main site, since it turns out more effective and a time saver.

Hey guys, I'd like to get some feedback on whether or not anyone else has had issues with their monitoring device overestimating their calorie burn, and thus with Spark People recommended intake increasing too much? I'm not sure if that's happening to me or not, and I'm not positive how to figure it out.

This ONLY happens with SparkPeople - not with Facebook or news sites, etc. <BR> <BR> I have noticed that even though I have Premium, there is a bar of ads above the Spark page.

I realize you don't like people to use Ad Blockers, but I find it VERY intrusive that on the log in page BIG RED BANNERS pop up that say Turn Off Your Ad Blocker, etc, etc!! There are about three versions of them.... <BR> <BR> #1 Its NONE of your business what programs I run on my home computer---so the mere fact that you are monitoring and detecting that I have an AD Block in place is intrusive. <BR> #2 Did anyone ever think that your Log In Page should be "inviting"....and ... Thu, 22 Dec 2016 14:59:39 EST finding out how many calories an item is? I make a gallon of Brewed Green Tea and then add 1 cup sugar to that gallon, so how do I know how many calories an 8 oz glass is? Thu, 22 Dec 2016 13:46:48 EST Other goals Each morning I post my steps in the other goals from the day before. For the last 3 days I have noticed that the numbers are changed from what I put in. I do not have a synced pedometer. I change them back to the numbers I had put in. Any idea why this is happening? Thu, 22 Dec 2016 07:01:27 EST Calorie differential report question The value you are showing for my BMR is exactly what other calculators are showing for me as sedentary. There is almost a 300 calorie difference. Other calculators show me at 1642 BMR 1970 sedentary, you are showing me at 1970 BMR. I am at a weight of 182-181 range. As I am getting ready to move to maintenance mode a 300 cal difference for my daily target could throw me off. <BR> <BR> Rick Thu, 22 Dec 2016 00:01:01 EST Lost my tracker I lost my SPAT, but I do have another one. How do I set that tracker up to replace the old one? I'm not real techy, so if you could give easy instructions, it would be much appreciated. <BR> <BR> <BR> UPDATE: I found my tracker, so no need to respond! <em>224</em> Wed, 21 Dec 2016 22:13:27 EST Difficulty posting comments on Friend Feedi For the past few days, up to a week, comments I enter on Feeds don't show up immediately, so I enter them again.

Just wanted to let you know. Wed, 21 Dec 2016 16:32:25 EST How do I add the little smiley faces,etc I see that some people add those little things, like WAY TO GO, and little pictures to blog comments and things. I can't see that there is an option to access those except when I'm doing a limited amount of things. I admit this site has been unusually hard for me to navigate and it's embarrassing how many times I find myself asking someone how to do or how to find something. <BR> Can you help? Is there a guidebook or manual of some kind? I'd actually read one at this point. <BR> Thanks <BR> ... Wed, 21 Dec 2016 01:35:27 EST I put a new Dongle in andit worked.

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 17:44:41 EST Sending a Spark mail to friends Help! I distinctly remember that there used to be an option, on the Spark page I thought, that said "send a message to your Spark friends". I had not used it but presumed it sent a Spark mail to all of your listed Spark friends. Now that I want to do that, I cannot find the option. Not on my Spark page. Not in my Spark mail. Does anyone remember this or know to where it has disappeared? Tue, 20 Dec 2016 15:32:56 EST Friend request process.

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 16:52:22 EST Inaccurate Weight Tracker I have noticed recently that my weight tracker is never right. I plug in my weight weekly, and the next time I log in, it has changed all by itself. I have a Garmin tracker and update my weight there, as well. It is correct in my Garmin, but incorrect here, even though I updated it to exactly the same number on the same day. My scale measures to the nearest 0.2, and my weight tracker always shows an odd number. I can't possibly ever record 285.9 because my scale will never show a .9, for...

I can't find the one that I used to use. Sun, 18 Dec 2016 09:23:52 EST Search Problem Often, when I search for Spark recipes, I do not find anything even remotely similar to what I am looking for...for example, my search for "no bake cookies" says "there are no recipes that match the search criteria." However, AFTER I type the recipe in, it gives several examples of similar recipes. Often the exact same recipe I typed in is there, with the same name. It would save me a whole lot of time if those had come up in the search. Why don't they? This is just one example. It has happen...

HELP Fri, 16 Dec 2016 06:22:42 EST Suggestion - limiting points for challenges Almost everything you can do on SP that earns points has a limit on the number of points you can earn - nutrition tracking (max 15 points), fitness (max 24 points). The one thing not limited is the challenge tasks. I'm watching people rack up close to 500 points a day by doing every day of a challenge in one sitting. I tried it, and one day was able to amass nearly 400 points in the challenge tasks section alone. <BR> <BR> If there is a reason for limiting the points in other areas, why not ...

I wrote in detail what I wanted to share, and pushed "post." To my surprise, my entry was REJECTED. What a waste of time! If I have shared something useful and valid in 500 words/ characters, why choose to force people to write more??? I'll just share my suggestion elsewhere.

It would be helpful for me to be able to see what my average was for the previous 7 days. I figure some days I may have a small surplus and some still a deficit. It would be more than the chart that shows calories and nutrition for the previous week, that is a great chart. That is only a nutrition chart, it doesn't give the net result. I would be helpful to not have it buried too deep in the menus. I use both the app version and t... Tue, 13 Dec 2016 09:36:00 EST
