The Web back office is a private site for all BIONX USERS accessible by a Web Browser. You can use your Smartphone to access it as well as your personal computer. Web Backoffice is a responsive feature, and a new way to check your activity information via your Smartphone.
There is important information that is exclusively available in the Web Backoffice, as well as services that will only function in this media. We strongly recommend that you access Web Backoffice by using your Smartphone or your PC.
Web Back Office is the protocol that the BIONX APP uses to share all data & information. This simply means that when you share an activity, the link to open it will be shown in the Web Backoffice.
Username, password and User Identity are all exactly the same as those used in the BIONX APP. So if you are using Facebook® to log into the APP you will need to use that to log into in the Web Backoffice.
To access the BIONX Website, select WEB APP. In the SETTINGS select WEB APP or follow this link.
The login, users and password recovery systems are exactly the same as with the APP and will generate the same emails and messages. You will receive emails containing links to activate the accounts identically the way you activate and recover on the WEB APP.
Here are a few ways you can check basic functions of your BIONX BIKE using the BackOffice, and the most important ones pertain to the ACTIVITIES as there is quite a bit of additional information found there.
The Main Menu shows all the links to the active options. Updates to options will appear here, including promotions, online shop accessories, etc.
The elements of the Main Menu are:
- · My Profile
Enables you to modify basic profile options:
- · Dashboard
- · Routes and Tracks
- · Calendar of events
- · Auxiliary elements (Language and logout)
The user profile contains information about you. This information is private and is used to calculate things like calorie consumption or to show your profile picture in your shared activities. To modify your personal data, tap on your picture or name on the TOP of the Main Menu.
The system will provide direction as to how to modify this data. You can change your picture if you are logged in using the BIONX BIKE user system. If you are using Facebook® the BIONX App will use your Facebook® picture profile and you will have to modify it in Facebook® to change your picture in the APP.
The following information can be edited in your profile:
- · Picture
- · First Name
- · Last Name
- · Gender
- · Birth Date
- · Weight
- · Height
This information is exactly the same that you have in your APP, and it is synchronized with the BIONX APP information. If you update your data it will also be archived in the APP.
The Dashboard is a unique panel with all the information of your activities in a resume. It will show the total data in measures of distance, time, calories, (all by default).
The dashboard also shows you a quick overview of all main information about your interaction and connection between the WEB APP, the BIONX BIKE and the BIONX APP. This included information like the total Activity Summary, Friends, Devices Used, BIONX BIKE Location, Activities Completed and a Simple Scheduler.
- · Activity Summary
This function offers a quick and broad overview of your activity in one period of time. The Activity Summary has two important elements, on the top you will see your figures (distance, etc.) and just below that there is a timeline representation of all the activities completed. The X is the time and the Y is the distance that you have ridden. Each column then shows you the activities per day. If you have done 2 activities in one day, the system will show you the number of activities and an account of all of the data for each activity. If you want to see a list of all the activities of one day or the details of one activity, hover then click over the activity in the timeline and it will move you to a list of corresponding details.In the timeline bar note a selector that enables you to modify your timeline limits by moving it with your cursor.
