Garmin IQ Player - Newbe question

Just did my first workout using Garmin Edge 1030 Plus and the IQ player. Doesn’t seem to be a very intuitive way to start and stop the workout unless I’m missing something. It seems if I held down the back button it ends the workout but I get no feedback as to whether or not things are saving.

Also, once the workout ends is there any way to continue if I’m feeling good? Didn’t seem to find an easy way to get out of the app or continue within the app but it seems to have saved another 3 minutes session in my dashboard…

Any tips? (Or user manual)

I think this covers everything regarding the Connect IQ player –

Very helpful. Ty

Last thing, I noticed that when I start a workout it immediately sends the active tracking and Strava beacon as that is what is set up on my account. However I only have that set up for outdoor ride profiles but there doesn’t seem to be a way to turn it off for these using the IQ app. Any ideas?
