Direct Messages on Strava

I think that Strava needs more social function in its system in order to increase its attractivity and its expansion. 

Some of my suggestions are :

 

1. A personal message system

2. An event scheduler which permits athletes to plan a group event 

 

I think both features would help to develop the commuity

  • It's simple: Strava does not want us to have this feature. I don't know why, but obviously other features are much more important (like a non chronological feed - and it is a mess).

  • C'mon strava, this feature request is open for 6 years, got over 700 upvotes and 200 comments.

    Adding some PM function couldn't be that hard...

  • Yet another feature request from so many users over such a long period that Strava management continues to ignore. Just like searching for routes, the option to choose a chronological display order, etc., etc., Strava continues to set new standards in ignoring customers.

    I can only draw one of two conclusions: either they are so financially strapped they can't afford customer service staff to read customer requests and developers to implement widely requested features, or they just don't give a stuff. Shame.

    The CEO (Quarles) is ex- Instagram and Facebook. Probably tells us all we need to know.

  • Maybe we all need to switch to Bereda Training if Strava can't do this. I'd rather not but really Strava - not having the private message function is a bit absurd.

  • Just adding my support to this. Private messaging / email contact with Strava Club members would be such a good addition. PLEASE STRAVA...make it happen.

  • It would be very good if the system of exchange of personal messages with other participants worked!!!

  • It's been over 5 years and we still don't have a private message system? Come on Strava! How do I share my phone number with riders visiting from out of town so we can link up and ride while feeling safe about my personal infos security?

  • But more often than not, social ride are not arranged club members and people want to ride with only select people from a club or people they have just met but are not affiliated with any club. 

    please - re-evaluate the club discussion board is just not practical and far too generic.  Have a look most rides are arranged by commenting on existing rides, which (is only between 2 people), and is public. We need the ability to chat.

  • How about even having the option of - if you follow the individual, and they follow you, you can see their email?    I just had to post my email on a message to a guy in order to be able to contact him. Kind of sucks putting it out there for the "world"..   

    Or - even an "allow" function for certain followers to access your info.  


    Obviously - one of the big benefits of Strava is the community based atmosphere (as Jaeger stated above).  Why wouldn't you promote this, or allow it to get a little deeper in depth by allowing a way (approved by both parties even) to contact another individual more privately.  Heck - I can block an athlete if they're a bother, but I can't contact them other than publicly? If it's a cost thing, make it available only to premium members - to promote more people to become premium members.  I don't believe I access anything with my premium membership that I couldn't access without it, but I think it's a great website, and I want to do what I can to keep it up and running and promote growth.

  • Ditto to everything mentioned above.  I love promoting Strava BUT... not having the ability to private message people is a HUGE drawback!  Indeed, it is a HUMONGOUS drawback!  And I never use that word lightly!  In fact, I was considering nailing a piece of wood to my head as a protest, until Strava got its act together and introduced a PM facility!  Eventually I realised this would have constituted somewhat of an overreaction of sorts on my part, so I opted to dispense with the piece of wood.  But I'm still holding the hammer & nail!  Do you want that on your conscience Strava management??!!  But seriously, pleeeeeeaaassseeee give us the chance to PM!!

  • Another vote strongly in favor of message system. Here's a great example why: yesterday a guy I know only through riding crashed in a race he was in. I heard about him and want to reach out with well wishes. I don't have his email or phone number. We talk on rides and follow on strava. This should be an easy no brainer to put in place

  • I would really appreciate being able to private message other riders. Some of the posts about adding this feature are 3+ years old, maybe more urgency on adding this feature is needed.

  • So needed it's silly:). How the heck are you suppose to coordinate training activities? Gaping hole in the platform. Easy need to spot and handle.

  • Why doesn't Strava give you an update one way or the other on popular suggested features?  Even if they just said "we have other priorities right now, this probably won't be available for a while," that would be nice.

  • I would love to have a private message system. There are people I only know through strava. Without pvt message system, conversations that should be private end up public and exchange of contact information is cumbersome.

  • I just received an email from STRAVA announcing STRAVA for Android Wear.  Obviously, STRAVA developers have the know-how to create new features.  Why, then, is direct messaging so elusive?

  • Private messages would be great. I follow people on Strava that I don't know outside of cycling and don't connect with on other social networks. Would love to have this feature

  • +1 for private messaging.   I'm trying to reach someone I met riding to set up another ride and don't want to blather about the details in activity comments.  The only way I can think of is to share my email in comments and hope that I don't get Strava stalked.  I don't have a ton of followers and I don't want to make my rides private.  C'mon Strava. Listen to your users.

  • https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000164764-Tool-for-personal-messages

    "Hello Strava-Team,

    would it be possiple to implement something like a personal messaging tool into Strava? As far as I know it is just possible to write public visible comments below activities.

    It would be good for people to directly contact others: to arrange activities, keeping in touch with people that you are not connected to in other networks or to get to know people who want to follow you.

    And maybe it would be helpful to mail another athlete directly to clarify flagged activities, for example when someone thinks that there is something wrong with an activity you have done. This, as a "first clarifying step" would also reduce the amount of work the Strava-support has to do.

    Best regards,

    Hans"

  • Not sure where this messaging question is currently however I have observed 2 things that make me question their capability.  One is the potential exposure to data leaks and liability.  The 2nd is that with the exception of a few Strava employees they just ain't too smart.  Recently I had a discussion regarding a consulting opportunity with Strava and the guy that I spoke to claimed that I had no marketing experience.  LOL.  Fortunately what Strava does it does rather well, I suggest that we leave them to their inadequacies until they f... up good and someone buys them for a song.

  • It's weird that Strava spends a ton on crap-marketing but appears to be totally unresponsive to user requests such as this private messaging feature. Adding that would make users much happier than being able to give kudos with a silly emoji. wtf Strava?

    (it's also strange that spell-check in the Strava comments box doesn't recognize the word Strava - who's in charge of programming there)???

  • "Why is Strava taking so long like (a year) to resolve this issue? Till date we are unable to private message even though we are premium members. Quick quick, you guys (strava) need to move uour asses!!!" 

    It's not like a year - this message thread started in 2013.  5 years.  This is nothing like the only obvious request that they have totally disregarded too - Strava has made it clear time and again that they do not really listen much to what their user base asks for. That's not to say their service sucks, but they are only interested in providing what they choose.  Eventually they will guess the wrong way too long and will get driven out by someone who does listen.

  • How can Strava have ignored this request for 7 years? I've been using Strava for about a year and a half and would like to see private messaging. I have people on my Strava that I can't contact in any other way without asking for emails and phone numbers.
