Last week we announced that Coachmetrix 2.0, with a rollout of improved features and navigation for coaches and their coaching clients, is right around the corner (5/6/22 is our target launch date).
As we mentioned, we’ll be starting with:
- A fresh look and feel
- New search ability
- …and the building blocks to improve our navigation to streamline how you create and share Resources, Collections, Assignments and Discussion Templates.
Most of the way Coachmetrix functions will remain as it is today.
Ready for a preview of what’s to come? Let’s go!
A Fresh Look and Feel to our Online Coaching Tools
To start, we wanted to modernize Coachmetrix. It had been since 2016 since we designed the original platform, and we knew it was time to make better use of space and to update the overall look without making sweeping changes to the platform.
You’ll see cleaner lines, updated buttons, and better positioning of elements.
Here are some before and after shots.

Refining the Coaching Projects Page
When you sign into Coachmetrix for the first time, you’ll notice that we’ve removed the tiles and made them a shaded list view so that you can see more projects in your immediate view without having to scroll through a long list of tiles (for our heavy users).
You can now archive your coaching projects, which takes them away from your immediate view, allowing you to focus on active coaching engagements. Plus, you can sort from a drop-down box for Active Projects, Archived Projects, or All Coaching Projects. The new search box will let you search for any of your projects, so that you see only what you need.
Navigation: From Tabs on the Left to a Menu at the Top
The navigation has shifted from old school tabs on the left to a more sleek, modernized navigation structure on the top of your screen.
You may be asking, “Why did you do this?”
The short answer is to pave the way for a smoother future navigation experience, especially as we add new features throughout 2022.
In the coming months, we’ll be modifying the navigation process so that Resources, Collections, Assignments and Discussion Templates all flow more consistently.
Here’s a before and after of the tabs on left to navigation on top.

Your Personal Online Coaching Library
When we first launched Coachmetrix, we started with the Resources feature – which allows you to create and share content with your Coaching Clients and Online Participants. We’ve since added Collections, Discussion Templates, and Assignments as a result of great suggestions provided by our dedicated subscribers.
We built all of those new features independently. Now, we have some work to clean up the navigation flow.
In Coachmetrix 2.0, we consolidated Resources, Collections, Discussion Templates, and Assignments under a “Library” header. Our next step will be to restructure the flow of those functions so that they all operate with a more consistent experience, as explained above.
You’ll also notice improved searchability for your Coaching Resources, Collections, Discussion Templates, and Assignments.
Online Coaching Assignments Simplified
We’ve simplified the Assignments feature to eliminate the “milestones” and instead make this a simple “to do” list. You can still add multiple coaching assignments to a participant at one time. Select the first assignment you want to “Assign to a Participant”, and then select any other assignments on the next page.
In a future Coachmetrix 2.0 feature release, you’ll be able to share Assignments directly from a Participant’s account.
Coaching Clients and Participants
On each participant’s tile, you’ll see a nice snapshot of information about the participant’s activity. You’ll also see three dots in the upper right that replace the icons to delete the participant or reassign them to a different coach.
We hope that you love the new Coachmetrix 2.0. We want to know what you think, so that we can continue to improve your experience.
And, we’ll keep you posted on the timing of all of the great changes and feature releases coming over the next several months.
Thanks, as always, for being part of our Coachmetrix community.
