Display data from all activity types in the Training Log

Currently, Strava's Training Log interface provides three views: Run, Ride, and Multi-sport. However, despite its name, the Multi-sport view does not include any activity type data other than that for running or cycling, apart from acknowledging that such an activity took place on a day with an XT tag. As a result, Strava is far less useful for those of us who participate in other activities, and many people are avoiding paying for Strava Premium because of this lapse (yes, we feel ignored).

At minimum, we would like the Training Log's Multi-sport view to include cumulative time spent on all supported activities, displaying them in different colored circles, as it does for running and cycling. That way those who snowshoe or cross-country ski in the winter, for instance, will at least be able to see how long they're exercising, as will those who are unable to run or bike, but can walk or kayak, for instance.

Better yet would be additional views parallel to Run and Ride for each activity type that Strava supports. Strava could easily display such a control for an activity on the fly based on that activity taking place at all, or show the control only if the activity took place a certain number of times, or within a certain time period. For me, for instance, I'd get a Snowshoe view and a Cross-Country Ski view, since those are sports I participate in regularly, but not a Kayak view, since I've never done that as an activity. In this scenario, the Multi-sport view should still calculate cumulative time across all activities.

If you're troubled by this discrimination against sports other than running and cycling within Strava, please leave a comment in this thread so the Strava folks realize how important it is.

 

Thanks in advance to Elle for passing this on, and to the developers for implementing it so we can all happily pay for Strava Premium.

  • I'm here for the same request.

    I'm a premium member (runner, cyclist and Nordic skier) but I won't be a premium member anymore if Strava continues to leave the "other sports" behind...

  • Awesome decision!

     

    I just started to test Training Peaks and figured out that TP was what I had been missing all along!

    So long Strava Premium.

  • Ooh I'd not heard of Training Peaks but will now go and check it out. Thanks to Strava's inability to even acknowledge lots of its paying (or ex-paying) customers, this thread now offers the alternative which they can't.

  • I assume this hasnt been resolved. Yes very annoying. Plus, when I have an injury i need to work around, I'll just switch sports but shoot for the same amount of time. When i see the run time as a few hours, but then see a bunch of weight lifting and cross as zero, its frustrating. Thanks for attention to the issue.

  • I though I finally found an app summarizing all my different types of activities. And I would easily pay for Strava if it had this feature.

  • Seems like plenty people would like to see this feature adding, and the demand hasn't gone away three years after the original post from Adam. That's just from the people who can be bothered to actually write something here: I bet there is a silent majority hidden behind us noisy ones.

    Cycling is my main activity, but I walk every day to escape the office, and when the weather is cold and wet I end up rowing. I rack up a reasonable number of hikes each year. It would be nice to have the ability to record these other activities so they count for something here. Otherwise why bother to acknowledge that the other sports even exist?

    You're missing something here, Strava!

  • I'm late to Strava but chose it because of supposedly good design and usability. This is bullshit. 2.5 years of stonewalling zillions of clear customer requests for something that should be simple?

    I'm not going to pay for premium features and will be looking at alternatives.

  • +1, it is the reason I gave up Strava Premium. I may upgrade again if they get this figured out. 

     

    I currently use Training Peaks. It is great!!

  • Please just add some bubbles for the "XT". I'd love to open up the strava app or web site and be stoked about changes / improvements. I notice it changed recently but it's not obviously better. XT bubbles in the training log would put a grin on my face :)

  • The fundamental features that strava is lacking are really quite astounding. The other big one I found recently is the lack of proper gear management. I can't add pre-existing mileage on shoes when I add them and I can't even set a default of no shoes for new activities once I've added shoes. I was forced to create a dummy place holder pair of shoes. There's been people wanting improvement on that since 2012 so I wouldn't hold my breath for this ever getting changed.

  • on the desktop/browser version  i see HR on my nordic skiing activities. on mobile android i also see HR.  it may be a summit/premium thing though.   training peaks is great software for actually analyzing your data.  Sport Tracks is also wonderful software, i prefer their desktop version over the mobile version,  mostly because it is very customizable.   basically every complaint about strava on these webboards  is something you can customize to your liking with the sport tracks desktop program.  strava could take a hint.....

  • I didn't read all of the responses here, but your multi sport view of the training log is beyond lacking.  there are many other sporting activities that give you as much of a workout as cycling, running or swimming.   Please stop ignoring the requests from your SUMMIT customers.

  • 1622 Days since the original request for functionality across more activities was made. Has anyone seen any indication of something approaching an official response?!

  • Couldn't agree more. A log is a log of everything, and in Strava it isn't. Please make it a proper log of everything

  • I am routinely doing cross-country skiing (nordic ski) besides running and biking. I would find it really helpful if one could see all activities in the training log page, and not only running, biking, and swimming. It does not seem difficult to implement and, in my opinion, it would make perfect sense.

  • I would also really like to get this feature. I will continue my Premium subscription for 2018 but if this is not added by the end of the year then I will cancel my subscription and move to something else that actually logs all activities.

  • Adding my voice to the numerous calls for a revamped training log that incorporates sports other than running, cycling and swimming. Many of the cyclists I know in Canada use XC skiing as a cross training activity in the winter and dedicate a significant amount of time to this activity for 3-4 months of the year. With the current training log setup, a full one third of my annual training time and kilometres are not reflected in my weekly/monthly/annual stats. Makes Strava significantly less useful for people who prefer spending time outdoors skiing to sitting on an indoor trainer riding Zwift!

  • Bleh, I don't want to go back to training peaks just because of this...please Strava.

  • I thought it was a joke when I got the film "your year in sports" and yet again Strava displays my total hours in sports this year as 2/3:rds of how much I have trained. I then got three or more emails saying that I should "hurry up because in 48 hours the offer to sign up for a full year of premium membership would end." I returned the question and asked them to reply to this feature request and/or fix their film in 48 hours.

  • Yes Strava - come on! It's been three years since this thread was started, and it is not a technically difficult thing to do. You would also be able to open your amazing service to more people (the large percentage of the world who do not just swim, run or cycle).

  • I am so frustrated about not seeing everything in my training log that I will cancel my paid subscription after the term ends.

     

    Let your money talk, and cancel too - telling support why you cancel.

  • The omission of other activities is annoying. I enter between 50-60km of walking a week along with weights and yoga sessions. I look at my totals and see basically nothing - I hardly see the point in logging it at all. The laughable thing is the regularity of requests I get to take out the Premium service - why would I pay for something that basically ignores what I do?

  • Got a reply from the support saying basically meh.

    "Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. I have assigned your ticket over to the Community Team for review.

    We review all feature requests and suggestions and we are grateful for your contribution. It’s our goal to improve Strava based on your feedback whenever possible. We wish we could respond personally to all feedback, but please understand that you may not hear back from us, and we may not decide to use your feedback."

    I feel sad that the Training log is otherwise nice visualisation and they are so close. Even trying to show other activities with the XT on the weekly row, but as it is missing from the stats of the week it is just meh. Garmin Connect's UI is worse, but at least I do get my full stats there. 

    I would like to see Strava as the main point for my data and as the community for comparing stats with friends, but at the moment it can only be the community part really well. And for that I do not need the premium features and paid service.

  • I have cancelled my Premium membership because of this and will not sign up agin unless they fix this shortcoming. There is no point getting only a partial overview of your training activities.

  • #stravametoo

    I want to see how my weight training is complementing my other activities using the training log.  Can't do it on Strava apparently.  Elon Musk can build the biggest solar batttery in the world inside 100 days but Strava can't add a simple feature to an app after 3 years.  Hmmm......

    This is the reason I quit my Strava Premium subscription and started using Trainingpeaks.

  • Let's just keep posting this thread on every FB post they make, maybe they'll get the message.  Seems like it should be a simple change that people have been asking about for years.
