Feedback for the new Group Events feature - Clubs

Today we launched the latest improvement for clubs - Group Events. Clubs can now create and share group rides and runs with club members.

 

Clubs admins can begin to make use of this new feature right away by adding group rides and runs to their club pages. Events can be one-time or recurring, can have a route associated with them, and are easily shared with others on Strava, as well as via Twitter, Facebook, and email.

This is just the beginning - there are many ways that we can expand on the events feature in the future and we’d love to hear your ideas.  If you have questions, comments or feedback, please post them here!

Even though we might not acknowledge every comment, our product team will be checking in on the feedback posted here and responding when we can. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!

  • awesome feature, i have been thinking how this would be awesome to have on strava or as a separate tool. you could maybe add some kind of "participate in ride" button and  riders percentage of attendance? it would also be awesome to somehow make "visiting ride" when you want to visit some place and ride but you don't know where to ride and and you don't have anyone to ride with...

    all in all awesome new feature!

    Cheers,

  • Love this new feature. We have been trying to find the best way to communicate activities with the club and this will be a great help. As mentioned above an "Accept" or "Decline" button would be a nice feature to add in the future as we could easily see who will be showing up and plan our rides accordingly. Thanks!

  • +1 for accept, decline, maybe. Would also like to import a gpx or tcx file - particularly useful if organising group interest in a sportive.

    That would also be a useful feature to add to the My Routes page. At the moment it seems restricted to routes that you create or routes that friends create and share. Adding file upload and adding previous rides (your own and others) would enable users to create a 'scrapbook' of routes to influence future rides. At the minute you have to use an alternative to Strava to do so.

    And while I'm at it, group forum features are needed on the smartphone apps. All in all, a fantastic service.

  • As road captain of Strava Club IR Fiets! it can be a handy feature. 

    1. the link to My Routes is very handy
    2. I miss the gathering time [gathering 09.45; start 10.00]
    3. The categories for the ride are too few: no-drop, tempo, stumping. We ride drop but moderate
    4. We repeat the event weekly, same time, same gathering place, but every week another route. It would be handy to page in data/routes 
    5. The link to the google map page with the meet-up sport doesn't lead to a link or thumb.
    6. A test button to see the result before publishing is handy.

    Best,

  • Just tried it out, some comments (some redundant):

    - the ability to +1 to a ride is critical, but I'm sure you knew that

    - there should be a running list of who has +1'd to a ride (or said maybe)

    - a ride caller should be able to simply reference an existing (public) ride and say "same as this"; having to create a route for complex rides is a waste of time, especially for rides that have been done thousands of times (eg strava.com/activities/114584045)

    - weather should be integrated - just a simple widget from wunderground or something, but with a special emphasis on wind direction and speed

    - ride style (no-drop, tempo, hammerfest) should be editable; every club has their own designations that have grown up over time and SF2G for one would be loath to change that system

    - the club page should show upcoming rides(!) - nothing there yet - eg., strava.com/clubs/sf2g

    - there should be an embeddable widget specific to *upcoming* rides that could be added to any website (eg., sf2g.com)

    - the meetup location should be shown in a streetview window, along with a link to its yelp page and admin-editable description, like "bikes allowed inside"

    that's it for now, great first effort!

    -Scott

  • This is great - the boys over in London Cychs are starting to use the group event function. Can you please add the ability to to RSVP yes or no to this as people then can see who and how many are attending the ride. Also a reminder notification 24 hrs before the ride would be helpful. Ability for all members to add comments to an event, not just at a club level will promote interaction. Thanks

  • group Ride reminders could  be sent via push notifications. Most riders ride regular routes and want to know what their friends are doing tomorrow or the next day. Seeing who and  how many people are going to a ride in a simple tally will create a great pre-ride feature and Strava being a one stop shop. RSVP'ing is critical to make this work.

  • Our MTB club loves Strava and this new club stuff is awesome!  The only thing missing is allowing members to RSVP to rides,easily allowing any club member to post an event, and reminder notifications of events like everyone is saying above. If these features become available then we will have no reason to ever leave Strava! Great job on the new developments btw!

  • great feature but not working! I'm unable to save events. The popup box just sits there and does nothing. Has this got anything to do with using a MAC?

  • in addition to feedback above, on the iPad, one is only able to see the first two digits of the year so you end up choosing a year blindly, saving it and then realising your dates are either booked in the past or future..

  • Bimpe - can you let us know which browser you're using on your MAC when you're having trouble saving events? We'll look into it.

  • Hi,

    I've tried this on firefox also, but still unable to save. See attached.

    Whenever I click on the save button, there is no response and I can't pass that page.

  • Hi,

    This sounds like a great feature, but I'm seeing the same issue as Bimpe: a new event will not save when using a Mac. The button animates, giving the appearance of saving, but nothing happens.

    However, I'm using Chrome (fully patched) on 10.9.2.

    One minor niggle - can you please localise the date format? 

    Oh, and +1 for RSVP buttons - that will truly make the feature a killer :)

    So many thanks!

        Paul.

  • Hi,

    Note no. 9. My co-admin of the club is able to edit but the save button is not working for him.

    Best,

  • I appears you need to be creator of the club to post a new activity. It would be nice if there was an admin toggle option to allow members to create activities. As it stands proposing events works well for "well organized" clubs less so for "social groups". I agree with the accept/decline option too.

  • Hi Elle,

    +1 for not being able to save a new ride. Safari & Firefox.

  • Hi,

    Note no. 10: in Dutch 'tempo' is a full equivalent for 'difficulty level'.  (We live in a very flat country). I had chosen 'tempo' in the category diffiiculty level,  but our Directeur Sportif has read it as if in the category 'Tempo'   no level has been chosen. So 'difficulty level' has been read as a 'blank' in e menu with all kinds of difficulty levels.

    Best,

    Martub

  • Ok! We've found the error, and documented the bug to be fixed.

    **The issue with saving Events is the date format for repeating events!

    The calendar selects the date options in the "American style" of "3/13/14" but if you live in a location where the correct format is "13/3/14" then you have to enter the date in your local format. 

    We'll correct this problem as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!

  • Hi, an error occurs. Help! My input is 23rd MARCH and after saving it has presented as 16 MARCH!! I checked it but there is nothing wrong with my input in US style.

  • Lets talk future features and must haves to make this really be the bomb!

    • 12 hour reminder notification sent before event time (or custom even better)
    • maybe push notification abilities, both for reminders and to be a communicat between riders. (ie - hey got a flat on the way in - running 10 mins late)
    • Attending / Declining / Maybe to show commitment. This then allows others to see how many are going and who is going / not going
    • local weather widget
    • Mobile app functionality

  • Hi, the error with the WRONG DATE  is partly solved. After re-entering the date + saving the starting date is published correctly (Sun 23 March) . BUT after removing my warning the date jumps back to 16th!! However, if no text editting is done and the date is re-entered and saved it is ok. 

    Best, 

    Martin

  • Martin - can you elaborate a bit more about the second part of your last comment, where the date reverts to March 16th? I'll look into it. 

    Petyr - could you send me more information about the problem you're experiencing?

  • Love the route feature and the enhanced club functions.  This is starting to become very useful and cool to drive a little healthy competition in my club :-)

    +1 for the accept/decline

    +1 for the reminder push with tally's of # invited and # accepted

    +1 for gathering time

    Additions:

    1. provide a way to mark and call out additional meet places on the route
    2. Provide a way to select all club members instead of manually having to select each one by one
    3. Enable a group email feature so that you do not have to input email addresses each time.

  • Hi Ellen, 

    My problem is I can't post a new event group anymore.

    Few days ago I could add two events but now it's impossible.

    I tried to change the date into european style but it doesn't work either.

    Thanks!
