TLDR: Check your FTP on the TR web site after you install the calendar update for MacOS.
I have noticed some strange behaviour with the MacOS app. It set my FTP to an old value when I opened it so that I could install the calendar update. I had to manually set my FTP to my most recent value.
This happened to me twice, and I’m somewhat certain it may have altered my body weight too.
Is there a way of checking what FTP was used for a particular workout? I’ve had a couple of really difficult workouts and my inclination so far has been an equipment problem, particularly power match, but if the FTP is wrong, that might explain things equally as well.
I saw this and thought I’d caused it as I’d manually changed my ftp on the website after finding I could complete two vo2max workouts in a row with workout at 105% (I’d also just dropped my ftp after my last test so wasn’t 100% sure it was correct).
I assumed I’d opened app and started a workout before it had synchronised the new ftp but when I looked into it it did appear that it had been reset to previous value. I just deleted the latest wrong value, sorry never thought of reporting due to thinking I was at fault.
I did some tests in conjunction with support. Turned out that it worked if I updated on the web using Chrome but not Safari. The support guy couldn’t replicate with Safari so we just agreed that I would use Chrome.
I see this is still happening. Did a ramp test on Tuesday on the Mac app. Did a workout on Wednesday on the android app and I see that on Wednesday the android app updated my records with my old FTP. I had to go and change it manually on both the website and the android app.
Wasn’t paying attention on Wednesday so didnt notice the FTP was incorrect at the time
Yeah, this just happened to me again; the second time in about a year.
I changed my FTP on Jan 4 via the web app and then trained against it just fine using the Android for about a week. Then on Jan 11, my FTP reverted back to the old value but I didn’t notice until today!
I did launch TR for Windows around that day. I don’t really use the Windows app; I was just updating that computer as I keep it around as a backup machine.
When syncing on a “new” platform, the sync engine should just read the FTP’s last-modified date/time and use whichever is newest.
