How to read long title on training peaks mobile app

I am getting some feedback from folks on using the mobile app, which is great because it means folks are using the mobile app and logging comments/workouts more!
The Issue
I will occasionally (often) use the title of workouts for extra notes specific to clients (wattage, reps, pace etc).
This is great, but the title gets cut off when you hold the phone vertically so clients miss or at least can’t read the whole title and then go to the desktop website (or check their emails).
Don’t go on a search it is easy to see the full title!

Portrait’ or ‘vertical’ phone orientation – see title is cut off
On the training peaks mobile app you can ROTATE YOUR PHONE to see long titles and expanded views of the calendar, graph, workout window.

The Mobile app is great for checking workout on the go and for logging those valuable comments,
  *get the training peaks mobile app on itunes or android here
hope that helps!

How to upload Garmin to Training Peaks and Strava Automatically

This is from the latest Smart Athlete Newsletter – Don’t miss content like this – Sign up HERE 

Link to the Newsletter and the extra content / upcoming clinic-session info

As I work through the end of season reviews and new client intake forms one of the big topics is always communication. To maximize the time and money spent on coaching and training we need to make communicating part of our daily routine. As technology advances, we are more and more able to automate our processes and reduce the work we need to do IF WE ARE WILLING TO INVEST TIME UP FRONT!!Let’s take some time, now that it is off-season to review our processes and try some new things!

1) REMEMBER TO FILL IN THE TRAINING DIARY / LOG / COMMENTS

The first step is to get using training peaks comments daily. Tell me about everything, just like a diary (food, sleep, social, and everything about your ride)
=> Training Peaks Mobile App for your smart phone (HERE) makes this easy to do

2) UPLOAD TO TRAINING PEAKS AUTOMATICALLY WITH GARMIN CONNECT

Next is to get uploading your files. Most clients use a Garmin device now and a new ‘hack’ has made uploading almost mindless … just plug in your device.
a) download Garmin Express HERE
b) Get a Garmin Connect account HERE
c) Connect Garmin Connect to Training Peaks HERE
d) Test it out byPlugin in Your Garmin!

3) NOW CONNECT YOUR GARMIN CONNECT TO STRAVA!

Strava is another great tool
-> you can also allow Garmin connect to send to strava automatically and save time

=> Basically click ‘upload’ in strava, then select ‘get started’ under the Garmin logo and enter your GarminConnect Login.
-> DC Rainmaker did a How TO HERE in more detail.

4) MYFITNESS PAL CAN FILL IN TRAINING PEAKS NUTRITION TO KEEP IN ONE PLACE (or for coach info)

MyFitnessPal is also now sync’d with Training Peaks and is the nutrition tracker I use and recommend
=> Sync your accounts now.

5) If you have old Training data in Strava you can export it as a GPX and then drag it onto the trainingpeks.com calendar.
