Not every workout can be ranked, check the official list of pieces that can be ranked on the Logbook: https://log.concept2.com/help#ranking
Only single distance or single time workouts will be rankable. Meaning, no rest can be added to the piece.
ErgZone makes it easier to create a valid workout to be ranked, for that, add a single interval with the total time or distance. Then, click on the "Splits" button to create splits you wish to see on ErgZone.
As an example, here is the step-by-step how to create a valid Half Marathon on ErgZone:
Before you start, check that PM5 is displaying the total distance. If you don't see the total distance (or time), your workout has not been created as a single piece.
