Option to select which day to start the Week

Really? The only option is to start the training week on Monday? I know it can be done because other apps I use allow the user to choose any day of the week to start their training week. myfitnesspal even has the option to choose the last 7 days. Does Strava really want to be the only app without this? It won't look good in online reviews.

  • Hi Peter, 
    If you're hoping to start your training week on a Sunday, see here: https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/21068132-Option-to-Start-Training-Calendar-on-a-Sunday

  • Elle, I'm requesting the option to start my training week on any day of the week. That's different and better than the previous posts just requesting a Sunday option.

  • Agree. The option should be to select any day, not just Sunday or Monday, as the first day of the week. Your start day in some cases is a personal preference influenced by work schedule, training time, and family and other leisure activities

    this https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/21068132-Option-to-Start-Training-Calendar-on-a-Sunday is too limiting and from a coding perspective should not be a stretch to enhance to allow any day of the week as the start anyway.

  • Yes the start of the week should be user selectable, there is no reason to not allow this. 

    It's hard to understand why after all this time this issue has not beed addressed. Both mapmyride and ridewithgps have this feature.

  • Please allow us to start training plans on a day besides monday. Don't have a traditional M-F 9-5 job; work weekends; target challenge is a scheduled race on Saturday, not sunday

  • Yes, let us choose the first day of 'our' training week

  • The ability for the user  to set the day that the training week starts on has been requested in multiple threads over the course of the past 4 years at least. If you added up the positive votes in all the threads you'd see this is a very wanted fix to the Strava experience. 

    It would be really respectful of their users if they would at least respond to the request even if it is to say 'we're not going to do it.'  I thought being a premium subscriber at least got us the courtesy of a response.

  • Please can you look at users customizing the start day of their week in your app. I see we are locked into a Mon - Sunday training week currently. I would for example like a Saturday to Friday week. Looking forward to a positive response :)

  • It is absurd to assume that everyone's training cycle starts and ends on either a Saturday or a Sunday. Regardless of how many or few of you users request this functionality, as a matter of demonstrating a logical understanding of how people train, you should implement this change and allow users to define the start of their week/training cycle.

  • I'm never going to pay Strava money if they can't even add a simple feature such as this. Polar offers a very similar setup with more features for free.

  • So those of us who have calculated our weekly mileage to reach a goal for the year are just screwed out of having it displayed on our calendar. Good job.

  • It's obvious they don't care because this has been an issue for years.  Stupid restriction.

  • I don't see me being a paying customer until this is an option. My ride week starts on Thursday. I'll find an app that accommodates this.

  • The functionality to choose your start / end of the week needs to be added. Please make this a priority!

  • please add this functionality. I use several apps for tracking different aspects of training / health etc, and starve is the only one I use in which this can't be done. it means that strata data is out of sync with every other app, as my week starts on a Sunday!

  • Since it has been so long that this has been getting requested, it does seem as though Strava does not listen to their customers. I really haven't been using this site much anymore though, this is one of the reasons!

  • Damn....until reading this post, I loved Strava. I now hate this company. I had a change of employment and am now doing bicycle delivery. Our work week is Wednesday through Tuesday. It would be nice to track my mileage along with my work week. Since so many people have requested this and it still has not been addressed, I will not be using Strava for much longer as they obviously do not even care enough about their users to respond to this post, which is on their personal website!!

  • Same — no way will I pay for an app that’s run by people who simply don’t care what their users want.

  • again i can only voice and repeat what people here have already done. My Training week goes from Sunday to Saturday so my training data is always mixed up as it's throwing my final ride for the week as my first ride for the next. yes it's a first world problem. but having the ability to set the start day to whatever you want will take the headache out of having to re-calculate your KM's at the end of your actual training week. rather than the preset training week that Strava says you are allowed.

  • Vote with your Google Play and App Store reviews. Strava's been silent on this desired feature since 2014! If people start leaving 1-star reviews, maybe we'll get some change.

  • Just do what I did. Delete Strava, email the company to let them know as to why you are not using their service. I never got an email back from them. This company makes enough money that they don't care about the few of us that want them to change 1 line of code. This company is horrible. I now use Under Armor's app and am loving it. Not to mention that they always send me coupons for $40 off at their outlet stores! That's how a company should treat loyal customers. I even emailed them about this app and why I switched. I got an email back from them in 2 days telling me thank you AND they gave me a $10 gift certificate, not a $10 coupon! Fuck Strava!!!
