How to start a workout from your phone (remote control for instructors) Follow
You can use your phone as a remote control to start your workout from the main computer when using our software for group classes. This feature is especially useful if you are running our software from a computer outside the cycling studio or if the computer is too far away from your bike.

When you hit play on a workout in the Desktop App you will see the pre-start-page with the Ticket To Ride-number displayed in the top right corner of the screen.
Open the Intelligent Cycling mobile app and click the menu Ticket To Ride. You will now have the option to input the generated Ticket to Ride-number for your chosen workout – in this example, the Ticket to Ride is 6713.
You will now see "start workout" at the top of your player interface. This is only visible to you as an instructor and will only appear if you are logged in with the same user profile you used to start the workout on the main computer. When you hit "start workout" it will remote control the main computer and the workout will begin.
You need to be logged in with the same user profile on both devices. We can only detect that you are the instructor leading the class if you are logged in with the same profile on the main computer and on the mobile app.
When the workout is running you can now control it from the mobile phone. Swipe up to access the Player Controls allowing you to jump between intervals or to pause the workout. You can also use "leave workout" to exit the workout on your phone without quitting the workout running from the main computer (this is due to security reasons).
