The Route Library is your central location to organize and share Club routes to your members. Add tags for organization, and manage route level visibility all from a single page.
When you first set up your club account, we will happily transfer over all of your existing routes from an established account or group so that all existing routes and URLs to the routes will remain intact.
What good is a Club account if you don’t have any routes to share with its members? Here are a couple of ways to add routes to your club route library.
If you find a route on another account that you would like to add to your library:
While on the Club page, click SIGN IN AS CLUB.
Bring up any route that you want to add to your library.
In the right side panel, click COPY TO MY ROUTES.
This will place a full copy of the route to the club library without affecting the original route.
Save routes to the Club Library
Approved route managers have the ability to work on a route from their personal account then save it to the Club Account. When finished creating or editing a route, to save it to the Club Account, follow these steps:
Click the SAVE button in the upper left corner.
When the prompt for a route name and more details pops up, go to the drop down list for ADD TO GROUP, EVENT, OR CLUB and select your Club Account from the list.
Click SAVE one last time to finish.
Select the routes you wish to tag.
Click set tags
In the Route Tags field, type in the desired tag or click to show the list of available tags.
After you have typed a tag, press enter to complete the tag. It will appear in a small box.
Repeat these steps to add additional tags to the same route.
Click the add tags button to finish adding the tag to the route or click rem tags to remove the tag from the route.
After you have added tags, you can further sort your routes by clicking filters. This will allow you to sort by tags, minimum or maximum distance, minimum or maximum elevation, route name, and location. You can add multiple tags to further filter your routes and better organize large route libraries.
Here’s a quick demo on adding tags:
Routes in the library can have their own privacy settings. Only a route manager will have access to these options.
Public – Anyone including members and non-members can view these routes. Members can take advantage of all the signature features for these routes, non-members cannot unless they are already paid subscribers.
Club Members – Only members of the club can see these routes and take advantage of the signature features. Non-members will not see these routes at all.
Route Managers – Only members with the ability to “Manage Routes” will see these routes. This setting is for routes that are considered a work-in-progress, or you don’t yet wish to reveal to the members until a specific date or event.
Change Route Location
Anyone with the ability to sign-in as the club account can change the starting location of a route. This is handy if you want to specify the neighborhood or landmark of the start of the ride rather than the default city.
Click SIGN IN AS CLUB.
Click the selection box to one or more routes.
Click the SET CITY button at the bottom of the list.
Admins (anyone with all 3 permissions selected on the member management table) is now able to lock routes to prevent any changes from being made until the routes are unlocked. Lock routes can not be edited or deleted until they are first unlocked and only admins have the ability to lock or unlock routes.
Check the boxes to select which routes to lock.
Once selected, click LOCK.
Now that the routes are locked, no changes can be made without first unlocking the route.
Check the boxes to select which routes to unlock.
Once selected click UNLOCK.
Now the routes are unlocked and may be modified by club member with Route manager privileges.
If viewing a locked route, you’ll see the lock icon prepended to the route name. If anyone clicks edit (note it is greyed out) they will be alerted that the route is locked and cannot be modified.
View the edit history of all of your individual Club routes, including date and route managers.
Click SIGN IN AS CLUB
Scroll down to your Club library
Click on the COG icon next to the corresponding route you want to view.
This will expand a pop up box listing the revision history for that specific route, in addition to the privacy setting and what Events and Tags are associated with that route, which you can edit.
When Route Managers are saving changes to a club route, they have the option of leaving a Changelog note that describes what and why they made the changes.
This option does not appear when saving routes to a personal account.
