Flag a Segment match instead of the entire Activity

Sometimes an activity may contain a wrongly matched segment. This can happen due to bad GPS data, or from an activity passing close from a segment (but not on it). This can have an impact on the leaderboard of the segment.

Flagging the whole activity doesn't always work because the owner of the activity may not be wiling to delete the activity it or crop it in half just to fix that segment's wrong KOM. We need to be able to remove or flag specific segment match from an activity.

  • Absolutely, I agree!!   Also, it would solve the issue of drafting on some flat segments during a ride.  Just 'flag' those segments, I've drafted behind a car, so I can keep my KOMs/PRs on other segments during the same ride.

  • This goes in hand with the ability to 'unmatch' a segment yourself. I have had many bad data segment matches and had the ride flagged as a result. Each time I have to send a support request to ask that the segment is unmatched, then I can remove the flag on the ride. If I could do it myself, or someone flags just that segment on your ride and you get the option to unmatch it due to bad data, then that would make things a lot easier and less work for support, or less flagged rides.

  • I would also like the idea of flagging a segment match rather than an entire activity.  I sometimes see segment KOMs that are clearly from having the activity recording while in a vehicle.  But I'll do a check on that activity before flagging it and see other legitimate PR's or good  performances from that activity that I'm sure that user would like to keep.  So I'll choose not to flag that activity so that they keep their achievements.  But if I could just flag that particular segment match, it would address this issue.

  • Is there really no solution for this? I just uploaded a ride and it matched to a segment I normally ride, but skipped today. My problem is it gave me a PR and now all future rides that I actually do on the segment, ill be trying to beat my wrongly matched time, and not my true segment time. REALLY need the ability to unmatch to a segment myself.

  • Possibly related to this issue:

    the ability to flag (or crop) a partial ride as "in vehicle" or "GPS glitch" would be useful

  • Not being able to correctly match ad flag just a segment needs to be addressed.... that is the WHOLE POINT of STRAVA is SEGMENT COMPARISONS! How can Strava not have already addressed this??! I really do not like flagging someones entire activity due to one bad segment... but we have no choice??! Very bad...

  • Still not addressed in 2020! Hurry up Strava. At least give the ability to the "owner" of the activity to flag segments that the owner knows are incorrect, and remove them from leaderboards. It would improve Strava's data a lot - by identifying problem segments (and working on solutions) and eliminating false data from the total data. Surely can't be that difficult to do technically.

  • Dear Strava,

    With your fairly recent change in direction, making 80% of the useful features paid only, I'd expect something like this an essential part of the functionality. How come that SIX YEARS after this request (and I'm sure this is NOT the only question about it) is STILL ISNT FIXED? I don't want to split up my 100+km ride, make it private or keep it flagged just because somewhere in the middle I had 5, 10 or 20 seconds GPS outage. Please fix, it's about time already!
