  • I hope they are going to upgrade this to. I just payed for a premium subscription. A week ago and I while I'm very happy I did this I was disappointed when I noticed you only could set weekly goals

    and not yearly and/or monthly goals. Hopefully they are going to add this in the near future. Thanks in advance! Otherwise very nice peace of software STRAVA is. Hehe :) And it only can get better and better.

  • This is a great suggestion, thanks! 

    We have no plans to add this to our Goals feature at this time, but we'd love to consider the project for a future time.

  • "We have no plans to add this to our Goals feature at this time, but we'd love to consider the project for a future time."  Well that says a whole lot of nothing.  Is it just me or is the ability to set a goal other than weekly sort of an obvious requirement?  So I took a Premium subscription because it says "Set time or distance goals and track your progress week over week. Build up to that big milestone and hit those PRs." So if we can only do a weekly goal building to that big milestone is only a weekly thing???? Just plain dumb, a misrepresentation, and shows a poor understanding of your user base.

  • I just received the email encouraging me to sign up to premium which I decided to do based on the blurb about being able to track goals. To only be able to set weekly goals was a very big disappointment and I don't think that I will continue with my subscription unless that changes very soon. Surely this feature is a no brainer and cannot be difficult to implement on the site?

  • I also just upgraded to Premium so I could set Monthly and Annual goals and was disappointed these don't exist as options

  • I personally don't have any yearly distance goals; quality over quantity. But I do know a fair few folks who do (e.g. 10,000km on the bike for the year).

    For those it is important to break them down to a weekly basis so it is manageable & trackable (10,000km / 52 weeks = 192km per week).

    I'm sure an extension of the current model for yearly goals would be appreciated but it's not exactly being denied / impossible with the current setup...

    Regards

  • I'd like to set climbing goals for the month and year.  I'd like to set a goal of riding a certain distance (say 100km) once a week, too

  • yes a must to continue subscription.  Go and look at the way Runkeeper allow you to set annual goals and then track completion.  This is the sort of functionality that your users will appreciate.

  • Leaving the ability to set an annual goal leaves a big hole in Strava. Please add this so we don't have change apps! Been enjoying using Strava with our riding group. Thanks!

  • I have cancelled my subscription which I paid for solely so I could set an annual goal.

  • Sounds like the same old story repeating itself but I changed to the subscription service to set a mileage goal for the next 6 months to find I cannot do it. Surely I should be able to set goals around any recorded parameter. Please change this.

  • I have just upgraded to Strava after it has been a success for the last 2 years. Though after upgrading I was disappointed not to see you could set annual or monthly goals. Weekly goal...who ever wants a weekly goal...thought Strava was meant to be a motivational tool where you could set long distance goals to challenge yourself?

  • I cancelled my premium membership a few days ago. With the lack of basic features like this I don't benefit from the premium membership.

  • Yearly goals would be great but why not just do a yearly challenge(yts) like the mts.  That would be even more motivation seeing where I stand in total distance compared to everyone else.

  • agree with all - it seems a pretty basic request guys...especially as there are more and more app choices nowadays...

  • 100% spot on guys, looking at Premium (currently on a 1 month free trial) and the only way i'd stick with it is having the 'ability' to track an Annual Goal, preferably both total kms ridden and total metres climbed. Oh well, looks like i'm heading back to Garmin Connect :(

  • I want this too! Neither Garmin Connect nor Strava is doing goals so well. I would like to set a yearly goal and be able to track my progress to see if I am on track, but I would probably be fine by setting separate  weekly, monthly and yearly goals as well.

  • to be able to set a yearly goal and with the option that strava calculates you weekly target to achieve that would be great. so if you miss a week then your weekly target goes up. if you do more than it goes down.

  • Something like this is what I would love to see in Strava.

    This was created by some guy on the street. A simple script. It's not that hard for someone who knows what they're doing.

  • Has this been added yet? I'm considering getting a premium membership, but I really need monthly and yearly goals. How hard can this be?

  • I just started using Strava after being on Runkeeper for several years - all my training is based on setting monthly goals (which RK did great), and I just started a premium trial in the hopes that this feature would be available. Please add it, this is a basic essential.

  • Would like this as well. Since i work irregularly weekly challenges are to short. I need to get to my goals in a monthly fashion

  • I actually just upgrade to Premium to set an annual goal to cycle the length of my country.  I foolishly bough a 1 year subscription without trailing first.  I can't believe this is not actually a feature!  I will ask for a refund.
