Hi, <BR> <BR> I would like to know if there is a way to add Sugar to the different items that our Food Tracker tracks, along with things like fat, protein, carbs, etc. Our foods are SO packed with hidden sugars, and sugars themselves are more dangerous than anything. <BR> <BR> Is there a way to modify the tracker or do I have to start a seperate tracking method for that? <BR> <BR> Thank you!

I don't feel very motivated by getting a notice that my streak that was quite a few months old is now only 2 weeks old, it is like I have been wiped off to start again. I worked hard to accomplish those goals and now they are gone like I never did them at all.

Sat, 3 Jan 2015 08:54:41 EST Finding my Spark Favorites I just discovered we have a Spark Favorites on the website, but don't know how to access it, other than adding an article from the site to it on the "more" tab at the upper right on my computer. I can't find it at all on my iPhone app. Any directions about where to find a link to the Favorites? Sat, 3 Jan 2015 07:49:50 EST Spark Tracker Details are gone! HELP! I just tried to get my Spark Activity Tracker details and they aren't there. Did you erase them? They only go back as far as December. WHY would you do that?!?!?!?!?

Fri, 2 Jan 2015 21:09:24 EST 2nd battery seemed not fully charged I received my Spark Activity Tracker this fall. It arrived with a spare battery. Before long, the first battery was done, so I changed to the new battery. From the get go, the new battery said it was about half used. Was there something I should have reset? Was the battery not fresh? Or does the Tracker use batteries that quickly? What is the average amount of time and/or what affects how quickly the battery will be used? Fri, 2 Jan 2015 20:17:08 EST FITNESS TRACKER changes and I do not foillow. Is there a video TUTORIAL to use the new changes in the fitness tracker. I do not have a computer that will download any tracker. (MICROSOFT SURFACE 2) <BR> I feel the few numbers on my pedometer are way too high. I input them and it often adds them twice. Others have asked for help and a couple will not use the tracker. It worked at the beginning but not now and it is undermining my program. <BR> If you can send me links I will print them and read them Pat in Maine.

Thu, 1 Jan 2015 00:43:32 EST Tracking Fitness on Spark Recent Change? I have been regularly tracking my walks and running intervals on spark by typing in the miles and the time to complete those miles. Spark would then put it in as 4 mph. for 60 minutes, but then I could go to the print tracked exercises and still see the actual miles. After about Dec. 14th, I can't see those miles anymore. I could figure an estimate based on the average mph spark gives, but I know those things rounded in ways that drove me crazy and would hate to have to do that to total my...

It is not stuck because I can get fingernail between the two pieces. Something is holding it from rotating. Or is it a defective Spark. Something is wrong. I watched the video and I am doing everything right. Just upset because ... Tue, 30 Dec 2014 14:37:09 EST Tracker problems I have loaded my tracker before and things went well. I redid my computer so the program got deleted. When I tried to reload it it tells me it can't find the tracker. What is wrong? <BR> <BR> We thought maybe the battery signal was not strong enough even though the lights were flashing. When we tried to change the battery we could not get it open. Instructions say to turn the clip counterclockwise and it just would not turn. <BR> <BR> Could you help with these two problems.

I've noticed that some people have a link to view their sparkpage but I don't. I tried going to my sparkpage to change it, but I can't figure it out. I unclicked the section that said only friends could view my sparkpage, but I can't tell if that was the solution or not. Tue, 30 Dec 2014 08:28:35 EST Trophies I absolutely do not want my streak trophies for anything except for daily checkin to show. Even tho my email notification of streaks says I can control that by "click here" there is nothing that will allow me to turn off only the streaks. The only way I can figure out to stop these annoying 3, or 5 day streaks trophies is to not track my water which defeats the entire purpose of Spark people encouraging a healthy life. The streak notifications are also inaccurate. <em>40</em> Tue, 30 Dec 2014 08:04:05 EST Start a team? How do you get team members to join a new team? I started one but no one is joining!!!!

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 17:49:19 EST Please Reinstate Search Box in Team and Forum Page I noticed that you have removed the "search" boxes in the message topics, and the team boards. So that being said, I was not about to sit and search through tens or hundreds of pages of topics to see if this one is previously posted so I could add to it. However, if I was able to perform a search within the site/technical help, I could have added this comment to it. I am also missing that feature in the team board topics.

Why not put an edit button next to each ingredient within the grouping, or make it work the way the same way that we can change the amount of a tracked food on our nutrition tracker? <BR> <BR> Thank you. <BR> <BR> Sat, 20 Dec 2014 14:59:31 EST Can I send Goodies to Multiple Friends? ...or do I actually need to open everyone's individual Spark Page? <BR> <BR> I see that there are messages about "Team Goodies"...but can't find any info how to send it to a whole Team... is there a way to do it all at once?? <BR> Thanks!! <BR> patti Sat, 20 Dec 2014 14:19:14 EST Fitness minutes I understand that sparkpoints for fitness minutes are capped at 24 points or 2 hours...but I should still get credit for my minutes that I still did. <BR> <BR> Today I ran 2 hours and 23 minutes but my tracker only counts 120 of those minutes towards my monthly minutes...I did the work, I should get the credit!!! <BR> <BR> So far I have been shorted 37 minutes and we know those minutes add up...if you do the work you should get the credit...i'm just saying... Sat, 20 Dec 2014 14:04:58 EST activity tracker not tracking correctly My activity tracker has been tracking incorrectly or lagging. Two days ago, after 30 minutes of exercise, it tracked only 1,000 steps and no activity over 10 minutes. That day I manually tracked my activity only to note a day later that if finally did track that workout. Then again today after 45 minutes of exercise tape it is tracking 948 steps and no workouts over 10 minutes. It is a bit frustrating because I look forward to seeing my stats online after a workout and it is disappointing... Sat, 20 Dec 2014 09:56:23 EST Removal of Spark streaks?

PLEASE, PLEASE tone down the horrible blue and green colors on the drop down menus of My Trackers and Community. I IMMEDIATELY got a screaming pain behind my eyes and head as soon as the drop down menu came up on My Tracker.

On Friday the 12th of December I manually tracked an estimation of steps . I need to correct the number entered. I obviously mad an error . The number should be 10000steps not miles . I apologize for the mistake . I was exhausted by my son's wedding and all that goes along with a wedding .I received trophies as a result that I did not earn. I don't want anything if I did not actually earn it ! Thank you in advance . Tue, 16 Dec 2014 19:05:40 EST What if I don't want to be friended? OK, this is weird, but what if I don't want someone to friend me? Is there any way I can remove myself from their page? I know it sounds strange, but I think this person is a bot. I also got a thank you for friending me letter (I did not send her a friend request) and an invitation to join her on Facebook because she's so into Facebook. Just seems like it's some sort of scam trying to get people to the FB page and the unsuspecting person gets a virus or worse. Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:05:48 EST Today's Changes I like the new features for streaks. A question: Because I could previously see "100% since [date]" as part of the summary on the start page, I didn't need to have logging in checked as a streak. Since I now have to click on "Manage My Streaks" to see a display that tells me I am at 100%, I had to check logging in as a new streak. It appears that this means my streak will now start over, right? (I was at 238 days, also had previously lost a 190-day streak because of a glitch when I logged in ...

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:34:14 EST Android SP app and new tablet I just got a new Samsung Galaxy S 8.4" tablet, and my SparkPeople app doesn't respond to the font size change in the tablet's settings, specifically for the Friend Feed section. The type on the Friend Feed is really small and hard to read. It would be great if the app could recognize the tablet's global settings and respond properly.

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 11:46:00 EST Any way NOT to search foods from other members? It's very time-consuming to plough through the numerous (mostly nutritionally incomplete) entries 'shared' by other members when I'm looking for simple, generic items--like chicken breast or fruit. <BR> <BR> Time was when the SP basic entries came first, and you had to opt in to get the ones shared by others. <BR> <BR> Now they are all piled into one mess...any way to unpile them? get back to simple ACCURATE information?

This morning I tried to delete a post on the team wall and just where the box asked if I wanted to delete an advert for B&Q covered the Yes No box. All I could do was close the page and start again. <BR> <BR> This is not the first time this has happened as there seem to be lots of problems with coming up slow ads, so that when you click where you want to go you click the ad and are taken there instead of the page you want. This is caused by ...

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 19:10:10 EST Weight Changed Itself I had weighed in a couple of weeks ago at 198. Last week I weighed in at 192.x, can't remember what the fraction was. Today my weight reset itself to 198.8, higher than it was ten days ago. My progress report on my weight is now skewed, and after I weigh in tomorrow, I hope at something less than 192 (fingers crossed), it is going to look like I lost and then gained back six pounds, and then lost it again, all in the space of two weeks. Is there any way to reset the weight chart so that it do... Sat, 13 Dec 2014 14:58:52 EST Spark goodies I am sure I posted a question about the spark goodies and I see it has not been acted upon. Is there any way to add another option when we spin either of the point wheels to give the sparkgoodies we earned to others not just to ourselves? I have so many spark goodies and when I remember to use them is normally when I get them on my spins but I cannot give anyone else the goodies only myself.
