With the Data Export feature, you can export your training data into an Excel file(s). This provides the possibility to create custom reports to suit your needs and further analyze specific pieces of data from your athletes' training.
New! New version of the Data Export is now available. It's now possible to export time series data (Premium+ feature) and create larger data exports (up to one month of data in one export).
Firstbeat Sports Premium and Premium+ users have access to the Data Export feature in the Firstbeat Sports Cloud.
Premium customers can export summary data (previously: scalars). In addition to summary data, Premium+ users can export time series, RMSSD and R-R data.
You can access the data export feature from the top left menu in the Firstbeat Sports Cloud.
Note: If selecting time series data is not available for you (text and selection box is grey), you don’t have access to the time series data export. Please contact Firstbeat Sales for more information.
Export output files
Data Export supports two types of output files:
- Summary format for several measurements, sessions and laps ('team level data') are always included in one file
- Time series and R-R data: When exporting time series and R-R data, one file is created for each measurement. In other words, there is always a separate file for detailed measurement level data
Data is always exported in MS Excel format and compressed in a zip-file in case there are several files exported.
You can choose the date range to be included in the Data Export. The maximum date range for one data export is one month.
You can filter the team included in exported data by using the top right corner team selection.
It's possible to select between the following measurement types to be included in the data export:
- Quick Recovery Tests
- Stress & Recovery data
The following data is always included by default:
- All available variables
- Premium+ users: If time series option is selected, also RMSSD and R-R data is included
- Premium+ users: Athlete profile info is included in the time series data export files
How long does it take to export the data?
It depends on the amount of data selected to be exported and number of parallel data exports done at the same time in the system by other users. Data exports are placed on a queue and processed with a first in, first out rule.
Usually, small data exports are ready within one minute but processing large data exports can take several minutes.
Why does EPOC and TRIMP time series data have the same values for every five seconds?
Data is updated with a five-second sampling rate because having more details is not feasible from a physiology point of view for these variables. However, the data available in the data export is available with a one-second sampling rate to keep all time series data consistent inside the exported file.
Why are some variables not available on the new Data Export anymore?
We are continuously developing new variables, improving the existing ones and retiring the old. In addition, over time, some variables might not meet our quality criteria anymore. For this reason, the following variables are not anymore available in the new Data Export:
- EE in fats/carbs
Can I leave the Data Export process running and logout from the Sports Cloud? Will the data export be available if I close the browser?
Yes, data exports are processed in the background and you can logout or close the browser. It’s also possible to use other features in the Sports Cloud while the Data Export file is created. Created data export files are stored for 30 days before being removed from the server.
Can all coaches in the same account see other users' exports?
No, exports (list of exports) are user account specific.
|Note: Naming of some variables is different in the data export and Sports Cloud API. Please refer to Sports Cloud API documentation for details.
