Terminology for users


Places are spots or facilities. They are located at an exact point, but can have more detailed components.


Spots are places where you can train. It doesn’t have to be big, it can be a single wall or barrier, but it can’t be a building designed for practicing, otherwise we designate it as a facility.


A facility is a building designed for practicing parkour, freerunning, bouldering, gymnastics or any other related sport.

Folders are a way to group things together. You can share them with friends, publicly or keep them private.


A user is basically someone who is using or used the app. To be clear about the vocabulary:


Groups allow you to share things more easily with other users. You can have plenty of groups, as you’d have tons of conversations on a messaging app. Creating groups allow you to give access to something to multiple users at once instead of giving individual accesses manually. It also keeps accesses up to date, when someone joins or leaves the group.

Groups doesn’t have to be reflecting real-life teams, you can organize them as you want!


When we talk about teams, we really mean teams in real life, groups of people regularly training together.
