Managing Logfiles

Analytics offers you several features to manage and organize your stored logfiles. The system is quite flexible and easily accomodates many different forms of organisation so you are free to use a method organisation that works best for your.


Every logfile has a description field, which acts as the “name” of the logfile. You can edit it by clicking on the description in the logfiles detail screen. Descriptions are full-text indexed in search, which means that you can search for any full word (but no partial matches) in them.

We suggest you use these to record the type of training session and workout programme recorded.

Tagging Logfiles

The “Tags” box on the logfiles detail page allows you to add and remove tags to your logfiles. A tag is like a sticker and you can use them to categorize your data. For example, you can use tags to record the boat class (1x) the age-group of the Athletes and basically whatever else you want.


Users of RiM For Teams can set crew and boat class in dedicated fields which are indexed in search.

We suggest you use these to mark session that e.g. contain races.


Adding metadata like descriptions and tags to your sessions would be of little use if you can’t use that information to search on. The logfiles list has a search box on top, as well as a “tag cloud” that you can use to filter your logfile list.

You can of course also use a date-range filter.

You can combine multiple search queries with AND and ORs. By default, search looks in all indexed fields (Descriptions, Tags, Crew).
