Hi,

I cannot say for sure if Today on SparkPeople will be removed from all pages. But, I can tell you that the other pages will be revamped to make them consistent with the look of the recently updated pages.

Have a good rest of your day!

Yeah, seeing total minutes and the yearly goal displayed together is what I want, it's a useful motivating tool. Is Today on SparkPeople going to be removed from all pages? I would consider that a real loss!

It's not your INTENTION, but your DIRECTION, that determines your DESTINATION!

Howdy!

Currently, the other option to see your fitness minutes totals is to go to My Trackers then Reports and select the "Fitness Minutes Over Time" report. I know it is not the same type single view summary as in the sidebar and does not include the yearly goal; but, that is where the data is currently available.

Thanks. Where else can I see a display of my my fitness minutes for the week, month, year, and my yearly goal all in one place? It would be great if that part of "Today" were shown on the fitness page.

I am sorry that you do not like some of the recent changes, and especially that some may make it more difficult for you to use some pages. I appreciate the time you took to share your feedback and recommendations. I will share this with the team here so they are aware of your view. Also, if you would like, you can post these and any other suggestions to our official Suggestion Box:

www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_suggest
ion_box.asp


Also, you are likely aware of this, but I want to mention that most things that are in the Today on SparkPeople sidebar are either available on your Start page or are one click away from there. If you do have trouble locating anything in the newer format, just let us know so we can help you find it.

Thanks again for your thoughtful comments.

I have been sad to see the Today on SparkPeople side panel removed from the nutrition page and the Other Goals page, making those pages display wider and with a lot of white space. I liked seeing my fitness minutes yearly stats and my Spark points displayed in that side panel on those pages, too. Some members have commented that they like the "clean" look of the updates, but it has had a negative impact for someone like me with "old" eyes.

I view the nutrition tracker on my 24" monitor and on my iPad mini. On my desktop monitor, making the nutrition page so wide leaves me turning my head back and forth like I'm watching a tennis match, and it has a very "in your face" too large feel to it. I've tried various zoom adjustments in a couple of different browsers, but these adjustments don't help and they affect everything else I view in the browser. I don't see a value to all the empty white space on the page...but I do see disadvantages.

On my iPad, I prefer to display the SP website instead of using the SP app, and it worked great until these changes. Now the text appears small, and when I zoom so I can read it, I end up displaying only the first column of the tracker. Before, I could zoom in and still see the entire tracker page. There are benefits on both desktops and tablets of having a narrower column...and having Today on SP displayed on the page accomplishes that...so it's beneficial even if some don't use the "Today" links.

The members who have given a thumbs-up to these changes seem to comment on the clean, uncluttered look...but I see a lot of wasted white space. Lately, it feels to me like my wonderful SP I have loved for about eight years is taking features away, making me work harder to do some of the things I want to do on the site. I'd rather have SP be feature-rich than "clean looking."

Since we could customize Today on SP to display what we want in the sequence we want, why not allow members to customize whether or not they see that side panel? A choice between "clean" and "feature-rich" with the narrower display.

I do love SP and don't want to be a complainer, I'm more of a problem-solver, these are some things I wish I could solve...my old eyes are finding it harder than before to use SP.

But I still love and appreciate SparkPeople and won't be going anywhere.

It's not your INTENTION, but your DIRECTION, that determines your DESTINATION!
