This is still a good idea, not that they'll ever implement it. :\
I got the same copy/paste response when I opened a premium ticket about it as well. They found someone new to lie to the customer base now that the old support staff is gone.
They are definitely not listening. The strava employee who responded to the original topic 4 years ago doesn't even work for Strava anymore. It sucks, but they don't care.
They have time to blog about swimming, but not enough time to implement a 400-upvote support request. Boo.
This still needs attention...
Strava doesn't care about Triathletes. They want us on Instagram and Facebook, but when it comes to the actual data they couldn't be bothered. It's a bummer but this site is 90% social network now ...
So.. How about that tag, eh?
Oh good, another copy/paste from Strava support as they ignore another feature request that all of the other major fitness trackers have already. :\
So much for that survey that Elle posted back in April os 2017, eh? :\
