Subject: RE: ZWIFT to Garmin to BT
I came to post about this issue then found this thread.
I recently joined zwift, and didn't connect my garmin account right away. So I have workouts that were auto-shared with Garmin, and then I had workouts that were not auto-shared before I connected the services. So I downloaded those files and uploaded them to Garmin connect.
Now in my Garmin connect, I see everything. But - the Zwift data that I "manually" uploaded is on BT. The auto-uploaded stuff is not.
To determine if it is indeed a 3rd party license thing, I looked for the difference. In Garmin, the auto-uploaded stuff shows up as ZWIFT - NYC - or ZWIFT Watopia, etc..... So that has some kind of tagging.
Funny thing is though, the pre-connected data files I uploaded to Garmin show up as "virtual cycling" but still have a designation in another field with Zwift as the 3rd party source.
So, something about the coding will allow files that were manually added, if the top line doesn't mention zwift. I think that lower field that mentions the 3rd party is a field that doesn't travel to the BT log. But in the Garmin files that were auto-uploaded by Zwift, the mention of Zwift in the first line, or that relationship to some metatag is what is gumming up the works.
That is the extent of my understanding of data, so I have no idea how to change that in any way, but that's my rudimentary understanding from a bit of comparison.
