  • Since the Training / My Activities list doesn't have average speed on it, I can't sort by that, which is an interesting metric for me. I would like to be able to sort that table by that column, as well as filter it by more values, such as a year, a date range, an activity type, a piece of equipment (particularly electric vs analog bike, mtn bike vs road bike). 

    If I could export the table to an Excel sheet (or CSV), I could add a column to compute the average speed for the ride (not to mention feet of climbing per mile ridden) which would allow me to sort by those values, and I could filter by date and sport, at least.

  • Add filter for Training > Activities to only list activities that meet certain criteria

    I use the list for more detailed tracking of gear on my bikes (copy/paste import into a spreadsheet) and I need to know which Bike was used for each activity - it's not listed as a display column and search does seem to not look at that field.

    There are a couple of solutions:

     1. Add a filter to make it easy to find matching activities
     2. Add the bike used to the display in a column, or allow display columns to be customized

    I'd prefer a Filter for better control when I have so many activities and search is quite limited. This is my prioritized list of what could be included:

    1. Bike - name
    2. Activity Date - range
    3. Elevation Gain - range
    4. Mileage - range
    5. Moving Time - range
    6. Temperature - range
    7. Effort - range or drop-down-list of labels

    Thank you,
    Neil

    PS: What's the point of having a text editor with formatting when the website display ignores some of it. Bullets are ignored so I made my own

  • Whats the point, they won't even add simple filtering to the My Activities page, so we could do date ranges etc.

  • parkrun tag or activity type

    I would love to be able to tag parkruns or have it as a type. Its a free event for all and encourages people from all walks of life to exercise more. Its global and Strava would be great to be able to help promote by this simple way.

  • Please give the option to group the bubbles on the Training Log on the website. I liked the old version where you could actually see a multi-week overview of your training. Since I record warmups and cooldowns as separate runs, I can only see two weeks of training at a time on my screen.

  • 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 ☺️

  • Activity type request: Prone Paddle Boarding aka Paddle Boarding -  this sport is definitely growing in popularity and was around long before stand up paddle.  Thanks

  • The most valuable weekly metric for me to see in the Training Log section is weekly hours. How many hours did I ride each week over the last four weeks?  I need to be able to see the trend as expressed in hours per week. Look at any training plan or hear the pros talk. They all talk about how many hours they will ride each week during a season. HEre's an example in a video by former World Tour Pro Phil Gaimon https://youtu.be/oVMBFw-kLzg?t=185 starting at 3min mark of video. Other weekly metrics (ATL, CTL, TSS) would be nice, but the most important element for me is time, even more than distance.

  • Please put basic filtering and totaling on the My Activities page. You can filter by keyword and activity type now, but we need date filtering and being able to filter on other things like distance would be nice too. With totals, I could easily figure out how far I hiked this year, walked in the last 3 months etc. Right now I have to do a download request and filter the data with Excel, good grief!! Plus you really make it nice on the download that I have to convert distance to miles and you put the date and time into a single field that makes it really hard to do date filtering.  In a data export, all of the fields should be individual and in a decent format. 

    I have been asking for this for a long time (years), and I can't believe it wasn't there from the beginning. This is standard for most web apps that show data.

    Everyone, please vote on this, thank you!

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

  • Feature request: I'd really like to see unicycling (human-powered, not electric) added as an activity. I realize unicyclists are a minority, but there is a growing number of us. The social/competition aspect of the app is totally skewed when our times on a direct-drive single wheel are compared to bicycles, with all their gears, downhill coasting, and aerodynamic advantages. It's at LEAST as big a difference as regular bikes being compared to E-bikes. I put in over a thousand miles a year on my uni, and the app is great for tracking my distances; but I'm certainly not going to pay for a subscription when the app discriminates against my sport.

  • Add "backcountry snowboarding" or "splitboarding" as an activity type.  Yes, it's similar to Backcountry Skiing, but no, it's not the same.

  • Can Strava add a feature for Stroller runs? I want to track my progress separate from my solo runs to see how I improve and also would be fun to compare to other stroller runners. Would be nice if this feature enabled single vs double stroller run and to add weight of each child so you can take that into account when measuring progress.

  • Allow setting default gear by finer-grained activity type. Right now, there are only default gear for "bike" and "run", but I have different bikes for "road bike", "mountain bike" and "bike trainer". I end up having to pick one as the default (road), and then every MTB or trainer activity I need to swap which bike is used. Same for shoes with running/walking/hiking.

  • Feature request:

    On the profile page, weeks with a race should be in some color like red. That way I know which weeks to look at if I want to see someone's race performances.

  • Would be nice to be able to see a summary of how much time spent in different heart rate and power zones for a specific period of time. ex. a year. All data is available in the log so it should be possible and would be a good tool for evaluating your training.

  • Eric Hawkins John Noonan Tom Shepherd Mike Molloy Bridgette E. Thank you all for voicing your opinions regarding the addition of unicycling, backcountry snowboarding, and stroller runs as future activity types! We appreciate you taking the time to share your suggestions with us and will share this feedback with our team for future consideration. 

    Tom Carroll Great suggestion regarding differentiating gear selection by chosen activity type! We love hearing feedback on how to improve the dirt vs. road experience for our athletes and will take this into consideration as we continue to work on future features!

  • Just to bump Nick Tisdell's comment from July 01, 2021 15:48.

    Please can you fix the virtual rides tagging/categorisation so that we can identify Virtual Races again.

    This was previously possible (my races in March 2021 are flagged), but my most recent races aren't.

    This is visible in the Freshness chart - my March races are identified, more recent ones are not:

  • I’d like to be able to set my default bike will be for new rides. I mostly ride my single speed through the week but my road bike is first in the list. Every time I ride I have to go in and edit my bike which is a first-world problem, I know, but it’d be cool if this feature was possible. I’m sure there is specific kit runners and swimmers would like to change as a default, too.

  • I have a feature request around non running/biking activities. I am a multi sport athlete. I bike and run in the summer then I do SkiMo (Racing version of Backcountry Skiing) and Nordic skiing in the winter.

    I'd like to have the option of workouts and races when I am doing other sports like Skimo or Nordic. Similar to this: 

    Then when looking at my training log it is easy to see workouts or races from other standard training sessions. I use this feature a lot in the summer for my training but can't in the winter. I wonder if there is a standard way to make them visable. Something like dots around the edge of all workouts regardless of color.

  • Feature request: In the "Training Calendar" page the default display is "Hours". Can a user configure this to default to distance (mi or km)? Or could that feature be added?

  • 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.
