Add a recurrence link

In the back office, when you create a programme, you can set up a recurring session. For example, you can choose to have your customer do an upper body session every Monday. This feature will save you a lot of time when creating your programmes.

To do this, in the "Coaching" menu in your back office, click on "Programmes" and then on the sports programme of your choice. When you're on your programme, click on the session you want to schedule on a recurring basis.

Then, once you are on the workout, simply click on the button under "Recurrence" and then "Customize". You can then customise this recurrence according to :

  • Frequency (days or weeks)

  • The days involved (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.)

  • The number of occurrences (number of times the session will appear)

Warning :

  • If you delete a session with a recurrence link, then all linked sessions will be deleted automatically.

  • If you edit a session that has a recurrence link with others, then the changes will take place for all linked sessions.

In other words, it is impossible to modify a session that has a recurrence link without modifying the other linked sessions.

Duplicating a recurring session

There is, however, an alternative solution which means you don't have to waste too much time. Instead of repeating a session completely, you can play around with duplicating sessions. Let's look at how to do this:

To begin with, you need to delete the recurrence for the session you want to modify.

Next, you need to duplicate the session : duplicate a session in a programme.

Remove a recurrence link

If you want to remove the recurrence link on a session in one of your programs, you have to go back to the edition of the session by clicking on it.

Then, under "Recurrence", you click on the button that refers to a recurrence link, here we have "Every week on Monday". You can then click on it and select "Once".

Always remember to save so that the changes take effect.

Practical example : Recurrence and duplication

To understand how best to use the notion of recurrence and duplication in a programme, we're going to create a set of them.

In this example, we're going to set up a 4-week programme.

We'd like the sessions for the first two weeks to be independent of those for the next two, so that we can make a few changes without having to redo the whole thing.

So we're going to use the phenomenon of recurrence and duplication.


To put all this in place, we're going to create a programme, in which we'll start by setting up a recurring session for the first two weeks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Here's how we're going to proceed: when you create the session, click on the button below "Recurrence", then on "Customise". In our example, we want the session for the first two weeks to be independent of the next two. So, if you want this recurrence to last two weeks, you can specify that it ends after "2" occurrences.

If we take a closer look at this recurrence window, we can see 3 key parameters :

  • Repeat every X weeks/days: how often the session will be repeater

  • Repeat on the "day of the week": on which day(s) the session will be repeater

  • Never ends / after X occurrences: either the session is repeated throughout the programme, or it can stop after X number of times it has been repeated.


Once this has been done, we're going to duplicate the session at the start of week 3 (day 15) so that the recurrence acts over the last two weeks. In this way, the two blocks will be independent and you'll be able to modify the "Upper body" and "Upper body 2" sessions without the other being affected.

This will allow you to make a few changes to sessions without having to redo them.
