While most swim tracking devices and apps are fairly accurate in recording your workouts, sometimes there can be errors with the data. These errors can include over/undercounted laps, unrecognized stroke type, and others. The good news is that Swim.com allows you to edit workouts uploaded with any compatible swim tracking device!
*Please note, any edits made to the lengths, intervals, or timing elements of an uploaded workout may disqualify a swim from being included on global, club, or pool leaderboard. This policy is in place to prevent potentially fraudulent results from landing on a leaderboard. This edit tool is provided so that you can keep your swims correctly recorded for your own personal use.
To access the editing tool. Select the workout that you want to edit from your feed, then touch the "View Swim Details" button at the bottom.
The edit tool button will be located in the upper right corner of the screen.
From here, you can select intervals to expand them into individual lengths. Depending on the type of edit that you need to make, you can choose from the five tools at the bottom of the page.
You can activate or deactivate these five tools by touching their icons. When the tool is active, it will be highlighted. We recommend making small changes and saving them after you make them, but you are able to do a complete edit of everything before you click the save button.
