  • Feature request: Custom summary statistics/visuals for activities

    I want: The ability to view summary statistics (total distance, time, elevation, etc.) or visuals (e.g. line plot of rolling average for daily distance for the past four weeks) for a specific date range or activity type.

    It will allow me to: Better analyze my training history and evaluate changes to my training plan.

    The reason that is important is because: I want to make smart decisions regarding my training, and having access to that data more easily will speed up that process.

    An example of when I need that was: when I was deciding how much to increase running volume, and I wanted to get a sense of (a) how much I've been running in the past month, and (b) how much volume variability there is in a given week of training.

  • As already mentioned above, I want to be able to set custom dates for reports. Specifically, it's January 1 and I already can't really see my totals for 2020. I can't see any week I want, but monthly and yearly totals would be nice to see.

  • Feature Request:

    Adding Fitness, Freshness and Form to the mobile app. I use the mobile app primarily, and rarely use a web browser. 

    Thanks.

  • Orienteering is increasing popularity over world. It could be usefull to have a new type of activity called "Orienteering" when you can log your races or training. It is very similar to trail running, only two diferences: the map's track must be published with delay (12 hours for example) and the segments are not continuous only begining and end.

    A desirable feature could be to upload the orienteering map and overlay the track.

  • In addition to the first post on this forum about the Training Log, it would be great if it was possible to have a filter to choose custom date periods and provide stats for distance, elevation etc by activity. For example, I am doing a walking and cycling challenge over nearly 15 months (note, not a whole month), so it would be great to just see those stats easily rather than do manual calculations. Would also be good to be able to save different searches.

  • Am I the ONLY one who uses "PACE" as an indicator of performance?

    In previous fitness software, I had a customizable, table list view, of ALL my runs with one column (of many) showing "PACE".

    This allowed me to EASILY compare, at a glance, my performance to ALL my previous runs.

    I can't find a similar "screen" on Strava.

    Is this a "weird" request????

  • I miss having the opportunity to sort my training logs by pace or speed. Among other, I have title (which you gave my activity and I cannot use it for anything), elevation and relative effort, which also is something you invented. Why cant I see real data or at least choose my self which parameteres I want to have displayed ?? average heart rate, max heart rate etc is much more relevant thant your relative effort to me. I used to use endomondo and really miss many of their functionalites to get an overview of my progression.

  •  I want the option of both a Default Bicycle and a Default Virtual Bicycle. It will allow me to track mileage on different machines. The reason that is important is because if i forget to amend the bike choice when i do a virtual ride it adds mileage to my road bike, which i try to keep track of for servicing purposes etc.

  • I would like to see more 'comparison' options for activities - such as the Power Curve / Power Zones & 25w Distributions / Heart Rate Zones.
    It will allow me to better assess my performance by comparing 'repeat' or 'similar' activities I have done in the past (ie. from my Training Log).
    The reason that is important is because it allows me better visibility of my fitness and strength gains / losses over time.
    An example of when I needed that was yesterday, when I did a Virtual Spin Class (No.62) and felt really flat, being able to compare with the previous(3) efforts on this activity would give me further insight.
    Below is a picture(s) illustrating where the extra functionality could be added, on the Power Curve Graph for starters.
    This is important to me because Strava is my 'Go-To' for recording and tracking my activities / fitness and informing my training regime.
    Strava has access to all the information req'd and already utilises the basic functionality (eg. over-plotting a 'Custom Date Range' - which at a minimum is a 1 week period) to provide the enhancement.
    Downloading the raw data and re-graphing (eg. with Excel) is time consuming and inefficient.

  • ^ If you want to see the distance ran, then why not just record it as running ? (and remember that football means different things around the world...soccer -11 or 5 a side, rugby, Aussie rules, American Football...impossible to compare them against each other). The list of sports is already getting unwieldy, if Strava added football, horse riding, pilates, orienteering and every other "sport' that people have been requesting it would take forever to scroll through the list on your phone ! people should remember that there is a limit of what Strava can realistically include, especially as many people are getting it for free.

  • Feature request: A rolling «Last 7 Days» total to show the training volume per 7 days but not necessarily Monday to Sunday.

    Why? This week I was aiming for 80K of running but in the middle of the week, due to the placement and timing of sessions, I actually had 95K over the last 7 days. Still - the calendar week still totalled only 80K of course.

    It would be useful to see a rolling total at all times to quantify acute training load day to day.

    Thanks ☺️

  • Can you filter out duplicate workouts? Garmin and Zwift import into Strava and if it has same timestamps, put one on "hold" for validation?

  • Hi Lincoln Rozelle! Thank you for bringing this up. At this time, our team is still working to resolve the issue with the virtual activity race tag. We appreciate your patience!

  • Can hours get added to gear tracking?  Currently maintenance intervals on bikes is in hours. This applies to commuter, road, gravel and mountain bikes. Some examples are hydraulic braking systems and air and hydraulic suspension systems on all types of bikes.  This would prevent one from having to use another app or spreadsheet for maintenance tracking.

  • Please consider including total distance and time data for each activity a member engages in -- not just biking or running -- in your personalized year end report.  Or provide some other way for even basic users to view or download totals for each activity over a given period of time.

    These totals, for skating, kayaking, walking, skiing would help capture what my year was all about, and help me monitor in a rough way how my activity level is changing from year to year.

  • As a rower, I want to have a Gear field available for rowing activities to indicate what boat I'm in. Rowing can be in one-person boats up to eight-person boats. I would like to be able to see what proportion of my rows are in different kinds of boats.

    Love the concept2 logbook and rowsandall integrations, btw - the photo of the erg screen is great and it's been super seamless for me!

  • NEW POST IDEA: Gear tracking, retroactive/historical data. We have the ability to specify a date for data entry (specifically when I added a component). But we do not have the option to specify a date when a component was installed. It'd be helpful, and seems like an easy fix, to add the same specify date - calendar - feature that is already in the Gear Add Component function - just add it to the Gear Retire function.

    For me - my gear is directly related to my overall Training Log - I have found it is sometimes important to consider when Preventative maintenance should be done in relation to Training Event planning or Race day.

  • FEATURE REQUEST - Functionality to filter by virtual and real rides

    Like many people, I ride both virtually indoors (bike trainer) and in real life. It would be very helpful to be able to filter your activities to just real outdoor rides.

    There is functionality to filter for 'indoor rides' and 'virtual rides'. But there is no way to filter for real outdoor rides.

    There is a filter for 'rides' but it shows real and virtual rides.

    Please can you add a filter to the activities page for 'outdoor rides'

  • Can we please be able to crop/trim the duration of a non-GPS activity? I use my garmin watch linked to Strava, and sometimes I forget to press stop on my watch. I'm able to crop it to the actual workout time on my garmin connect app, but can't do the same on the Strava app.

  • I've got a feature request: please add a "transportation" option to activities similar to the "commute" option. This will let users tag any activities where they run/walk/cycle to get around town, not just to/from work. For individual users, we'll be able to see how far we used active transportation, and for city planners using the Heatmaps, they can better gauge P2P trips that are not just exercise (which could arguably go in other directions).

  • I'd like the ability to add an "Other" category for components. I recently had to replace the di2 battery, and installed a EW-WU111 at the same time. And.. there's no capacity to add this category. I do however want to track the battery install date - it's a consumable, and it'd be nice to track when I installed the wireless module...

    Rather than trying to capture every type of (new and emerging) component, just adding an "other" category should address this pretty easily.

    I’ve worked around it by using “Front & Rear Shocks” which I’ll never need to actually use for my road bike, and just putting in an appropriate description. But... still...

  • For the cycling heat-maps please allow e-bikes to be included, have switched to an e-bike and now my rides logged via a WAHOO Roam no longer appear on my heat-map, means the feature is now totally useless to me.

  • Feature request:
    When joining a McMillan plan provided by strava it would be useful if this plan was then imported to the training calendar. This would allow users to see all there information in one place.
    Also it would be helpful if strava automatically worked out the required pace zones for the workouts by using pre-existing data, (for example best estimated run times which is located on their profile,) and incorporated the pace/zones into the workout plan for you rather then just stating 10km pace. 
    Also an estimated fitness/freshness to be displayed on the fitness and freshness for the upcoming runs via the plan.

  • Feature Request: When adding a component to a bike, it shoes milage. It would be helpful if it also included ride time. Would be helpful to track time-based service, like mtb fork.

  • Yes, it´s quite a huge challenge to bring valuable content to the platform for being attractive the long run for all members.

    "Just thinking out loud!"

    All common people, the normal athletes, you whom I mean, me, you and yes you, are ending in their personal dead end that normal segments are turning into a very uninteresting thing. That´s probably the answer why we got those local heros and local queens rolled out. A nice idea for all commuters and so on. Segments are just bringing focus to all common and normal ones back if the either compete against themself or analyze their efforts.

    I mean, it is not like that you don´t have data from us to make more out of it, for each of us. Introduce a complete new section, let´s call them "Stats" and bring common and normal visualizations together. This could be data where we are looking at in very regular basis.

    Some ideas, more is warmly welcome:

    - "Trainingsmix" to get an weekly/monthly/yearly overview of your sport types, like how many time you spent in each type of sport in a simple stacked bar chart
    - Another stacked bar char for displaying percentage spent per heart rate zone, some guys wanna see their 80:20 numbers
    - Stacked bar chart for displaying percentage spent per power zone per sport type
    - Stacked bar chart for displaying percentage spent per pace zone per sport type
    - Line charts for tracking power data for different sport types, like average 20m or 60m FTP results
    - Line charts for tracking speed data for different sport type, like 5k, 10k progressions
    - ... and so on.

    Just consider this list as a open and living one.

  • Can we have the option to add more winter sports gear? I like that feature with bikes and running.

    I would like that feature with skiing as well, as many of us have multiple sets of skis or bindings. Different skis for different conditions.

  • Add Gear type: Cycling Shoes.

    Currently I can only track a Bike. I also want to track Cycling Shoes.

  • Show a list of all segments I've run (or ridden). I don't think there's currently a list anywhere that comprehensively shows all the segments I've run. It would be nice to see them all, instead of just a certain selection depending on what part of the website I'm looking at.

    This was also popular on the old forums: https://web.archive.org/web/20200812075134/https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/208834677-Show-a-list-of-all-the-Segments-I-ve-ridden-run-on-Strava

  • I am new to Strava, but an old time runner - and I would like to see interval splits able to be set for shorter distances, such as 1/4 or 1/2 miles as I often do a shorter, faster run than a longer run - or do track runs.  When I was using MapMyRun it was easy to see my splits down to 0.1 miles and give me the fastest pace within that split.
