Naming and Renaming Range

Once you have created a bunch of ranges, you can "Link" them together. By clicking on the button just to the left of the "named range", a small "link" will appear. Linking ranges comes in handy if you are going to use the Multi File Analysis feature! For example, if you did a ride with multiple tempo efforts, you can link those ranges together and view them in the Multi File Analysis feature.
Click on the ranges you want to link together.
This prevents you from having to retype the name multiple times and it also will give you the rest period between each liniked interval in your summary Section on your Journal page for the workout.
