Ability to Remove an Achievement from an Activity

Sometimes due to a GPS error or a bad strava segment, you get an achievement in the middle of the activity which, for but for various reasons, you really don't want it in the achievements for the particular activity.

If this is close to the start or end of the ride you can currently solve it by cropping part of the activity.

If this is in the middle, then the existing options are all very problematic:

- downloading as gpx and editing (cropping from middle) with third party tools = slow, tedious, uploads as new activity so it removes existing comments and kudos

- cropping half activity via strava until the problem segment = loose half activity

- flag your activity so it doesn't participate in the leaderboards = obvious disadvantage

- requesting a support ticket in strava for having the achievement removed = slow and sometimes non effective

 

We really need this feature deployed for the users. Allow us to remove achievements.

  • Thanks Ioannis C.!

    Actually, we're working on a concept to be able to flag just a "portion" of your own activity, could be a portion in the middle, which would remove segment achievements within that portion. I think that would help solve the situation you describe here!

  • This feature would be rad. I just got third place on a climb that I didn't even do.

  • For a different reason I would also like to remove achievements on selected rides. I just uploaded an iFit ride from an indoor Google mapping bike to Strava and the segments actually align as if it was ridden on the road. It's unfair to go into the all time Leader Board list as there's to many elements not encountered in the lounge room🤔🌬🌧☀️.

    Update: I just "flagged" the activity but not sure of the process of that yet.

  • In true Strava style; 4 years passed and still not implemented. Im going to have to delete my entire activity because Strava picked up segments I didnt do / partly did and gave me ludicrous unachievable achievements.

  • This feature is also useul to eliminate clibing results made on an e-bike, but keeping the DH achievements on the same activity
