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!

  • Group Event integration with your Calendar - noted! 

    Group Events for other activity types besides rides/runs - will certainly pass this along! 

    James, thanks for the feedback regarding the organizer and how the display works around who's going.

  • How about a comments section?  Somewhere for RSVPs to says something, such as seting up a carpool.

  • Would it be possible to extend this feature to each user, instead of just clubs?  Say I'm planning on going to ride on Sunday, I could create an event and invite users I follow or who follow me to join me on the ride.  I shouldn't have to create a 'the Jeff club'.  With the lack of private/group messaging, this would allow planned rides with people that you're not part of a club with without having to organize them outside of Strava.

  • Hi Elle, 

    Thanks for watching this thread so closely. We used the event feature over the weekend - I'd like to add +1 to the request for comments/discussion on the group event. 

    I also think a notification feature integrated with the mobile app - for riders running late - would be a great idea. I guess it shouldn't have been me, as the organiser, who was late!!!!

  • That is great Elle. Will it possible to review past events as well ? I think it has been requested already, so +1

  • @Hugo - showing past/previous events is not currently being worked on, and is not planned. But we appreciate the feedback!

  • hi elle, i'd like to suggest the group rides should extend beyond clubs.  it would really make the social part of this media work if people could post upcoming rides and invite anyone to come.  local or even some of the classic rides that people plan once-in-a-life time.  for instance, stelvio, months ahead maybe someone could comment on that segment (?) that they're planning to go next year.  get advise and see who else will be there then.

    something like this: mashing up meetup, with couchsurfing and okcupid :-)  but seriously, having seen that there are segments with people on the leaderboards who've done it on their trainer, we really need to encourage stravites to get out more and actually meet

  • I also think it would be great to be able to view past group events: the route, those enrolled, etc 

    Think this is mentioned elsewhere, but the ability to store and retrieve routes from within the club section for all the admins, rather than them having to duplicate would be brilliant.

  • Elle,

    Your April 14th summary seemed to miss the comments people had made about being able to see/export upcoming events onto e.g. Google Calendar; I'm a +1 for that.

    Also +1 for the "tentative"/"maybe" option instead of just "I'm in". e.g. one of the groups I've joined has a ride set for the day after my wife's work's christmas party; whether I go or not depends on how drunk I get. The problem with just having in or not in is that, if no one wants to commit to in, the organiser might just cancel it whereas, if he/she knows some people might turn up, he/she has more information on which to make that decision.

  • +1 It would be great to have a page with list of past group events: the route, those enrolled, etc

    It's inconvenient to loose all the events that have so many emotions anв memories.

  • • As requested elsewhere I'd like to be able to share Events (and Activities) to a FB Page, not personal account. Most Clubs have a FB Group/Page. 

    • List of previous events! This allows a Club to develop a sense of history.

    • Exporting Events to Google, iCal, WebDAV — so they're actually useful. Training Peaks does this, so can Strava.

    ^^ the above constitutes the kind of thing the Strava team should really be working on to get this SOCIAL media community up to speed ;p

  • I clicked Leave link accidently for my club at web. Suddenly I am not member anymore. It is so strange to see this design without confirmation which would cause a lot of admin overhead. Please don't allow leave without confirmation!!!

  • Mobile support for clubs would be ideal. Looks like a lot of people want to receive notifications, would also be able to create events from mobile as well

  • Mobile App needs access to the Group Events! This is a big downfall.

    Also, a feature to export/sync to outlook/google calendar would be useful.

    Cheers,
    Dave

  • Looking to use the feature for weekly races.  Would it be possible to add Catergory 1, 2, 3 and Pro to user profile?  That way we can separate the classes.

  • Dear Strava Support

    Our riding group started using this great feature recently

    our plan is to stop using other types of social media to communicate info about rides, times changes due to weather at late notice etc.

    For this to be successful we need full mobile app support for all features, push notifications for any changes to club rides rather than just emails. we really need this on the app please

    A comment can be posted on the app but no group event info

    Also what happens to one off group event historical info, can it be accessed, would be great to have access to reuse this info, not have to recreate, use as a template for future rides.

    Good feature but can be great if fully developed, what improvements are already planned to be introduced?

  • Leverage Clubs to create "club" Events , have members join and then get ongoing SMS/email/facebook etc.  updates pre-ride. The join/not join ride function is assumed. This would be way better than email lists, etc.

    I'm in Northern Sydney Cycling Club and our webpage Rides feature is relatively lacking in comparison but could have a link to the Strava Clubs event.

    It gives folks another good reason to use Strava

  • I'd like to be able to cancel a single event in a repeating series. That way I can have a weekly ride, but if the weather is bad cancel this week's ride while leaving the following rides intact. Thanks for listening.

  • Hello!  

     

    Id really love to view all pending invites to an event, and obviously app integration.  

     

    Thanks!

  • Save Event does not work for me as owner of club. I've tested Firefox / Chrome / Safari on MacOS and Windows and upon clicking save event button nothing happens.

    When looking at developer tools -> Network in chrome I'm receiving an 500 Internal Server Error upon submission when clicking "Save Event" after inputing data for the event.
