Changes to default Activity names

Starting August 18th, we changed the way Strava automatically names your activities. Previously, when uploading from a device (via the Strava website or via a syncing program) your activities would be titled "mm/dd/yyyy City, State" or "dd/mm/yyy Town, Region, Country". Now, your activities will follow the same naming convention as the Strava App. For example, "Morning Ride", "Afternoon Run", "Evening Run".

 

The default activity name is easy to edit. From the mobile app, when viewing one of your activities click on the "pencil" edit icon or select edit from the menu button. From the website, see the "pencil" edit icon to the left side of your activity page. You can also edit multiple activities from the "My Activities" view under the Training tab. 

 

We made this change in an effort to build consistency between the Strava website and mobile app. Additionally, when viewing activities listed on the profile or Activity Feed, activities are always listed by date making it easy to determine when the activity took place. 

 

September 9th, 2015

We understand that the new default activity names will not work for everyone on Strava. We welcome your comments and discussion on this thread and hope you understand that your feedback is heard and has been discussed with the Strava team. We do our best to cater to all the needs of our community, knowing that new features and product changes will impact our members in different ways. 

 

We don't currently have plans to revert the changes or build additional settings to customize default activity names. Our product continues to evolve and we hope you stick with us knowing that we take your feedback seriously.

  • I liked the old way was much better. Please change it back, or please give us the option to define our own default title.

  • Sorry, I think the old naming convention was much better. Please put it back or give us the option to select the default name.

  • Another vote for bringing back the old format!! I much prefer to be able to look up "where" my activity was, rather than if it was the morning, lunch or afternoon.

    At least give us the option to select which label we want for our activities. We can have a default for our gear used, why not the activity labels?????

  • Surely "fixing" consistency between the mobile app and the website would be better served by making the app apply some useful information instead of making the website lose information?

    What seems to have happened here is that the website naming had dumbed down.

     

    How things to be easily distinguished when everything gets a simple "morning" or "afternoon" tag?

  • Add me to the list of people not liking this change. Please revert. If you want consistency then change the Strava mobile app to use date/location as default title.

  • Looks like at least 95% of those commenting here are against this change...including me! You guys blew it. Do you ever ask real users what they prefer? How about gathering requirements from your customers? Please revert, or provide an option for each user to choose which default is to be used for their new activities.

  • Please build in functionality for setting our own default names with some smart naming.  All my <10km rides would name as "$morning/afternoon Commute", all my >10km rides would auto-name as "$location Ride".  That would be sweet!

  • I agree with most of the other comments here that this is a backward change taking away useful functionality. As for consistency, I have the Date and location naming for all my activities more than three years back and Strava is now ending this consistency. At least you should have an option to use the date and location activity naming.

  • I much more prefer the mm/dd/yyyy City, State default method of naming rides over the Morning/Afternoon/Evening default method. I usually change the name of the ride anyway, but I like having the date of the ride in the title of my ride. So it becomes somewhat tedious to type in the date every time when editing the name of the ride.

  • I just did a 66 mile "lunch ride."  That makes a ton of sense.

  • Please, please, please add the ability to define your own "default" activity name(s). The ability to change the "Morning ride", "Afternoon ride", "Evening ride" texts would be enough for me and would save me the time to always change it after each ride!

  • Exactly what Sam Stein says.  The location is really important.  Seeing the locations of others on the feed is great.  Seeing a stack of "Morning Ride" and "Afternoon Ride" down the list is pretty dull. I also like to go through old rides and see location.  Give us some options please instead of the new default which isn't useful.

  • I hate this change. I now have to manually type the old format in, it's slow and not a good move Strava. Change it back please or as others have said, allow a toggle option for either naming option.

  • Another vote for "Morning Ride" + "Start Location" format here.

  • Please change it back! The information if its a "morning run" or an "evening run" is useless, but the location where it took place indeed is very important. For a race-weekend it might be ok to change the name - but it's inefficient to have to change the name of all the activities.

    When I uploaded some files (respctively synced them from garmin connect) everything is "morning run" or "ride" and I have to click through all the activities to rename them... 

    Your previous solution was great and it took a lot of waiting until garmin implemented the "location feature" too, but now you're done with it? C'mon?!

  • I also miss the location names of my workouts. This was the easiest way for me to see, at a glance, which route I chose to run for any given day. I wish "Morning Run" would have simply been added to this existing data, because on its own, "Morning Run" is meaningless to me. All of my runs are morning runs.

  • Please make this un done or create an option to use the old names as default. Afternoon ride by example is such a meaningless title. Now I have 3 different names voor all my activities. The date and place there against very handy and clear.

  • Now my notifications will tell me I’ve gotten kudos or comments on the generically titled activity “morning/afternoon/night ride” and I will have no idea which ride that refers to unless I take the time to manually rename them or click the link to see the details of the ride. That’s bad UI. The system can be setup so that it tiles the ride automatically from the metadata  (date/distance/location), offloading work from the user and making for a better UX.

  • The new names are too generic. Add my voice to the throngs of users crying out for at least the option to use the previous naming convention.

  • Please change it back! the default option before was much more relevant. At least give us the option of which default naming convention to use.

  • I also agree with you. The past way to tittle the activities was better ("mm/dd/yyyy City, State" or "dd/mm/yyy Town, Region, Country"). Strava could undo this changes. It was easier to find when and where we run.

  • I agree with many others. I want the option to either a) go back to how it was b) have a choice of activity name styles or c) merge the two styles but tag morning ride, afternoon ride on the end because to be honest that naming convention is meaningless on it's own.

  • This is an awful change.  I spent a long time trying to figure out if I had done something that broke my configuration settings, as I could not imagine something so horrible as the default.  "Evening Run" is a completely generic, useless title.  I want to quickly glance at the training calendar and see what/where I ran.  Also, when I receive Kudos for a "morning run", that is completely meaningless.

    PLEASE change this back, or at least provide an option to give us the choice for a naming convention in settings.  I now have to change this manually, which is really tedious.

  • No. Just no. Please revert this back to the old way of posting activities (or give an option) as I now have to rename them all for consistency and its really annoying to have to do this every time I run.
