What does the "commute" button actually do?

What does the "commute" button actually do?  I bike commute a lot and I try to always click this button assuming that I could filter my activity logs for commutes.  Well I've actually tried that and don't see that it is an option.  So what does clicking that button do?

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)?

    10 (2x5days)

    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava?

    privacy/stalkers, e.g. i've had some people from club rides ask to follow me who I don't know very well, and while i'm happy for them to see my weekend/fitness/big rides i'm less comfortable with them seeing my commutes

    also people from work seeing my times of arrival/departure, sick days, etc

    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava?

    i already track them all, because i have enhanced privacy mode on and limit my followers (though i'd prefer to have something in between so commutes counted towards my total riding, but didn't need to be visible for less-well-known acquaintances)

    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava?

    average commute times or ability to compare distribution of times for different routes (its hard to tell if one route is faster from individual rides, but once i've ridden them 10 or 100 times the average/mode/median might be a good comparison)

    long-term stats, just like the usual annual summary info but specific to commutes

    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed?

    depends on how well i know the person whose feed it is — not at all for "acquaintances", but happy for "friends" to see my commutes

    in my own feed, i guess i'd prefer to see less of people's commutes that match their regular commute, but if they deviate and do a 20km detour ride that's still a "commute" that'd be interesting (a ride can be both 'commute' and something else)

  • New to this topic. I would LOVE to be able to filter my commute rides for the obvious reason that it would be useful to know my commute mileage and commute stats, culled from my other activities. On Garmin Connect I can separate all commutes by the filter "transportation." How about something similar for Strava? It would be a motiviator for more folks to leave the greenhouse warming devices at home more often. Increase fitness, etc.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)? 6x/week
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? None
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? I track every ride, I just want a way to be able to separate my commute rides from my big rides. 
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? The info provided is fine. if I could sort commute rides out, to see how many times I commuted per/week and month, plus how many miles that would make the info really useful.
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? I don't necessarily need commutes to be polluting my followers feeds. The only one that really cares about commute miles is the actual commuter.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)? 
      10 times/week all year round

    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? 
      Because it interferes with the rides I track during training in our cycling club. I would not like to have commuting and training mixed. So at the moment I set my commute ride as private

    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? 
      I would not stop tracking commutes, but I would be pleased if it was filtered as commutes

    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? 
      Long term stats, improvement if you have made a new record on the whole commute at a certain ride

    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? 
      Just separate from training

    • Furthermore, it would be nice if you could click commute in the app (my Garmin is synchronizing with Strava) when I confirm the ride on my Android phone

  • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)? 
    10 times/week all year round

    What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? 
    Don't want to share my times etc. Commute feeds to others are pointless and annoying. Commute should be separate to training. Want to upload, just want to restrict sharing.

    What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? 
    Having them separated from training and racing. If commutes we're auto logged to my commuter bike so I could monitor usage, book servicing etc.

    What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? 
    Total distance commuted. Hours commuting. Total calories burnt commuting. Coldest temperature. Hottest temperature. Any time a record is broken etc. Would be good to log distance travelled on commuter bike separate to that logged for the road bike. Distance travelled in rain.

    How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? 
    Private to me, so not shared, although happy to share any of the above. ie, Nick has travelled over 250 miles commuting this month.

     

    So in summary, simply separating commutes from training/racing would be a good start. Commuting should then not feature in my feed, just the training/racing rides.

    Thanks for listening. The app is amazing and one I couldn't live without, just think Strava can do better.

    Best,

    Nick

  • An afterthought:

    I see a few people say they set their commutes private to get around the issues of flooding followers with boring rides / not showing randoms your commuting habits. To me this partially defeats the purpose, because a lot of my weekly distance is on the commute (my stats!!), plus the odd PR, and there's definitely some motivation in seeing friends' commutes on the colder/rainy days, or things like that, so I don't think making all my commutes private is necessarily a good solution to this. (basically, I'm angling for slightly more advanced social/privacy levels)

  • Totally agree with what is written above. I don't want to spam my followers with my commute activities but want them to be taken into account for the Challenges. So I tag my commutes as private, wait for a week, and them then tag them again as public activities. Not really convenient.

     

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)? 

                At least 10/week

    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? 

                Don't want to spam my followers on the activity feed

    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? 

                If followers had the choice not to show commute activity on the activity feed page

    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? 

                At least milage but plenty of other statistics suggested above

    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? 

                I don't want my commutes to be shown in the feed but followers should be able to see them on my profile page as they are tagged as private activities

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)?  -  1-3 commutes a week (so 2-6 rides)
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava?  -  I don't think anyone else is at all interested in seeing them, although they should still count in my total miles
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? - I use Garmin, synced with Strava. When the ride arrives on the app with the edit/confim screen, I need the chance to flag as commute then and there, in the app.  BUT even more usefully - once I have manually tagged the three or four commuting routes I use, why doesn't strave automatically rides  from then one.  After all Strave already ideitifies that I am riding the same route as the day before.
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? -  month on month comparisions, so I can see trends. Anything that helps me find better routes : eg average stopped / slow speed time each month, and coamparisons across my two/three routes -  - which has the best/worst traffic.  What time of day is best?  When I get up 15 mins earlier, on average is my commute faster? less traffic? 
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? - an option to hide them is enough.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)? 1-3 times
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? If I feel I'm spamming my friends with rides that are not that interesting
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? Knowing that I'm not spamming them
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? None in particular
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? Different activity icon; perhaps a smaller box and no map, in general more condensed information in particular if there are no KOMs/QOMs, PBs or Top10s; more advanced, if Strava knows the average commute for a particular rider but then one day they go the long way to work/home to highlight that (still with a different "commute" icon) but try and keep regular commutes subdued. Always show my commutes to me but allow me to hide others "regular" commutes (still showing "remarkable" commutes and allow me to hide all others commutes.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)?  -  5 times a week (most of the time
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava?  -  Feed spam in Friends and Club Feed
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? - automatic commute recognition. Maybe based on definable home / work Adresses. Manual adjustment is not really an option as I sync my garmin hardware with strava
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? -  periodly (week, mont, year commute count and distance). Why not handle commute like other trainings but an option not to show them in other feeds (or per default not to do so). Maybe an option for a second commute feed (not very interesting for me but could be an option). 
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? - not in friends or club feeds at all or in a different feed.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)? Commute 2-3 days a week, always record my rides with Strava
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? Same as everyone else; spamming friends with boring rides/data
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? Not sure.  I record all my commutes regardless.
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava?  I would love to be able to filter my rides by the "Commute" tag so I can see how many commute miles I have verse all miles
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? Either have add a filter to show all rides or a filter to hide commutes.  I used to keep them private to keep them out of the feed, and then unhide them later to avoid spamming the Activity Feed.

    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? Not in the main feed - perhaps a separate feed - ie "Me - Commutes" which contributes to the overall distance/height stats, but doesn't get broadcast (and is perhaps private by default?)

  • I don't record my commutes as it would bore everyone to death but I would love to see the substantial miles clocked up on my Strava stats, so lets make the commute button a sort of filter only appearing to me.

  • Heya Elle

    I know that this is not Endomondo, but the main feature missing from strava that keeps me from going all in on strava is actually the "hide commute" ride. Endomondo has a "hide transport riding", so like a few have mentioned I don't bore all my friends with 2 commute upload a day. So a simple feature like "hide commute rides from news stream" but keep it in stats would be awsome, and make me only use one sports tracker instead of two :-D

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)? 6-10 times a week
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? I don't wanna spam the activity stream with all those minor rides
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? An option to "hide commute rides from my news feed to others
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? Distance and time most important - heart-rate, cadence, avg. speed, elevation would be nice but not needed
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? In my OWN feed it could have a little banner saying "Commute" and hidden from anyone elses feed unless I specifically want to share it :-)

  • If you could tally the kms for the commute it would give me greater justification to the wife for me to buy more bike gear.Dont care about hiding the ride as it usually is cover most of my riding.Although i can see the point for people doing small boring commutes. Would be pretty good tool to work out commting miles for different areas for interest of cycling movements.

  • Any updates on the plans for the commute tag? As someone who is now recording commutes 3-4 days a week I'd definitely like to see:

    - Autonatic naming and tagging of commutes

    - Better filtering of commutes

    - Commute specific stats, eg number of days, number of  miles and perhaps even an estimate of CO2 savings

    Keep up the good work.

  • Hi. Mileage commuted can be claimed on expenses, so if a simple summary of dates and mileage could be displayed or downloaded in PDF, text, excell format for use in claiming expenses. That would be helpful. John

  • Any updates Strava? I realise this feed is over 2 years old. I'd also like my commutes to be hidden from feed but for my milage to count towards my yearly total. Is this actually going to become an option?

  • Old thread, but might as well chime in...

    How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)?

    8x / week.

    What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? 

    Spam my friends' feeds. People don't need to know exactly when I'm coming and going from work.

    What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? 

    Allow commutes to be excluded from my friends' feeds. Hide the exact start/end time.

    What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava?

    Commute frequency. Total mileage. Comparison of same commute over time.

    How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? 

    I think users should have an option to toggle "show commutes" on/off for their feed so they could easily hide my commutes (and I could hide theirs.) Short commutes in the feed is WAY too much noise if you follow a lot of people.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)?

      2-4 times/week.

    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava? 

      My commutes are most of my mileage (and I'm on track to ride 6,000 miles this year) so they're not trivia.

    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? 

      Nothing. I already record them all.

    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? 

      I would like to be able to see what my commuting mileage is for the year.
      I'd like to see how I stack up against other commuters on Strava, in my area, etc.

    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? 

      If they're under a certain threshold (settable by me--say, ten or twenty miles) I don't need to see them. Otherwise, I'd like to see them.

  • If it is not something Strava already does could you please make bike commute data available to public authorities.  This data would be very useful to town planners and could help to secure much needed investment in cycling infrastructure.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)?   I don't use Strava now to record commuts, but I commute 10 times a week (twice a day). Besides that, I take a walk once or twice a day that I would like to record.
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava?  I don't want to spam my followers with commutes.
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? See above, if commutes would automatically be excluded, I wouldn't use another app to record them (I use Runkeeper for that)
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? I would like to be able to see seperate statistics for commutes and none-commutes. 
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed?  I don't see a commute as an excercise (I don't use a heart rate monitor during commutes). So I am only interested in distance, speed and time.

  • Sure would be great to be able to:

    1. Get all stats/screens that have options to include, exclude or see commutes exclusively

    2. Have commutes as a column in the My Activities table

     

    This data is invaluable when trying to get legislators to look at bikes/peds as part of the entire Transportation picture. And given you already make strava data available to city/county/state planners, sure would be good them to know know what the commuter routes are vs the recreational routes. Would really help channel transport dollars into making the commuter routes safer, and avoid the "screw the lycra crowd" arguments from the auto-only dinosaurs.

    • How often do you use Strava to record your commutes (#/week)?   Average about 2 per week; much more in warmer months.
    • What are some reasons you would NOT upload your commute data to Strava?  I always upload my commutes.
    • What would encourage you to track more commutes on Strava? Nothing really. But would like to be able to separate out commutes from other activities (rides/races/runs).
    • What info would you like to see about your Commutes on Strava? I would like to be able to separate out commutes from other activities (rides/races/runs); and see heatmap by commutes. Essentially anything you can do with Strava, it would be good to segment out for commutes. 
    • How would you like commutes to be shown in the Feed? Like any other activity.
