Options to filter and sort the Dashboard Feed on Strava

suggested this on February 27, 2012 01:41 PM

Provide options to filter your Dashboard - for example:

  • Filter out commutes
  • Filter out rides less than X miles
  • Sort by number of Kudos, ascending
  • Sort by number of Comments
  • Filter for Grouped activities
  • Filter by Activity Type
  • Sort by notable achievements (KOMs/QOMs/CRs/PRs)
  • Choose a default Feed view: My Activities, Clubs, etc. 
  • Other?

interesting option, it will be a great idea to filter news like new message, new plan, new ride or activity from a specific date

An option to filtering the Dashboard feed is to group by user, activity type, or both.  Click on a carat next to the user to expand that user's recent activities.   Do the same for comments as they are currently all displayed and can fill up the feed quickly.

Also ability to set amount of achievements displayed for a ride in the Dashboard. At the moment it is 3, it would be nice to be able to change this.

With regard to comments displayed, maybe change it to a scrolling box?

Would be nice to be able to filter certain feeds (such as only show rides > X miles, etc.). Another nice to have would be to "snooze" certain feeds like Tweetcasters 'zip' feature.

Better yet, make "My Activities" the default, and then you can switch on others as desired.

I agree with Eric.  Having the option to make "My Activities" the default option would be welcomed.  I don't really want to see what people I'm following are doing all the time.

Absolutely agree to the Commute options - the 'Commute' tick box currently does nothing (as far as I can tell) and as others have said it can fill up the news feed quickly.   Besides I also don't want my commutes showing up in the club/groups that I am a member of.   Come on Strava lets have some sensible filtering!

I consider an activity feed filter extremely important.  I am interested in cycling, not running.  Many cyclists also run.  With the growing popularity of Strava and my ever increasing "Following" list, I miss some activities that below the current page view.  If I could filter out Run activities that wouldn't happen so often. Often I have to click the "More" button several times.  Why the delay in implementing this feature?

I really need to stop seeing 10km cycle commutes in my dashboard feed - what is the point of showing me all these junk miles!

I've spoken to the concerned individuals and they feel the need to log all their commutes so they can tally how many kms they have done at the end of the year. Fair enough. Why don't you wear a pedometer all year round and see how many steps you've made too!?

Please make them go away!

Here is an idea... When you flag as a commute or trainer ride Strava should only show a smaller (one line?) entry for that particular activity in the feed. Trainer rides that get submitted dont usually have any kind of gps data so why show a map?. This way people can still keep informed of all the activities other people are doing without all the screen space being used up. Even better... why dont you just log the disance / elevation & achievements for rides designated as "commutes" rather than the whole GPS route this would presumably save you a truckload of storage space which is currently wasted on people who dont even want this data. If somebody wants the full GPS mapping thing then they dont turn commute flag on ... simple.

Please add the ability to filter out people's daily commutes.  Who cares?

I also would like a filter for commutes, different friends, rides only, etc.  I would argue that certain rides by people are just as boring as seeing commutes and I like to see when friends are riding to work.

Regarding Jeremy's comment, I want the GPS route for my commutes.  Several reasons, 1) I take different routes sometimes and want to know that route info, 2) performance in segments over many commutes helps me see increases in fitness, 3) despite being commutes, I have many PRs on segments and even a few KOMs.  If commutes didn't hold GPS data I'd simply not log them as commutes.  I can see where others might find two rides a day to the same place boring to see in their feed.

I don't formally "train" anymore, I don't consider my commutes junk miles that I don't want any statisical information on.

I would definitely like to see the option to filter out Commutes from my Strava feed - I used to mark all my commutes as private, but then these don't get included in any of the Strava Challenges. As far as I can see, at the moment, the commute check box doesnt actually do anything!

+1 for removing Commutes from the Activity Feed. My feed is just clogged up with the same rides day in, day out and it would seem like a huge leap to be able to filter these out...

I'd also like this option - the people I follow are ones who I go cycling with, but many of them are also runners. However I'm not interesting in seeing their runs on my activity feed, so I'd want to filter these out and only keep the cycling.

I'd definitely appreciate a filter based on Type so I can filter out Workouts

Agree for oprtion to filter rides unde a certain distance. Too much useless information.

A detailed filter would be nice too. But I think first of all to filter rides, runs and news is a must.

Dashboard is like a bag with everything in it at present.

But is there a plan with it? Does any strava agent read these we write?

Completely agree - I am embarrassed about my daily 10k commutes polluting my followers' feeds but want to keep registering them. Please give the 'commute' option more power and enable filtering for rides <[x]km or marked as commute. Thanks!

I am one of those "spamming" my followers with daily commutes. But still I really want to have a total of Km cycled, so I need to track the activities.

I made a request that was deleted so I'll post the same here. I ride 3-5 days a week as a commute and feel that I am definitely spamming followers with the same exact ride two days a week. It's enough that a couple people have already stopped following me. Please allow us to check the Commute button from the iPhone app and filter this out of the news feed. I only have a hald dozen (max) rides per month that actually count as "real" rides, but I want to track all of my mileage.

Please allow us more control of our feeds, like Facebook does! I would like to be able to filter who I see (choose which riders show up - some Strava friends are only acquaintances and I don't need to see what they are doing every time they ride), and even what I see (filter out commutes). And I would like to be able to choose what is my default page - I don't want it to go by default to show me what others are doing, I want it to default to My Activities! Or at least choose that as an option.

I'm marking all of my commute rides as private to prevent spamming other people.  My dashboard is spammed from commutes from at least 2 people I'm following.  I would very much like to select whether to show commute rides in my dashboard, whether to show rides less than xx miles, etc.  This would be a WONDERFUL option.

Marking my commute private has a down side.  They don't contribute to my "best ride" for any segments on that route for instance.  We need this filter mechanism!

What a waste of typing.  This topic has been going on and on for so long its almost as old as I am.  Unfortunately Strava doesn't read this and they have no intention of make any filtering changes. They are making fools of us.  Heck, we are making fools of ourselves if we think this will do any good.

I agree - at least we should have the option (or even by default) don't show commutes on the dashboard. I want to track them - but I don't want to spam other peoples dashboards.

I really like the ideas to be able to filter out commutes and rides under x number of kms for both my activities on other people's feeds and for other people's activities on my feed. Or just allow for private activities to count towards challenges. That would solve the first point.

Yes, please provide a way to filter commutes!  I want to track them, but I don't want to spam my friends with them.

Disappointed that this update did not make it into version 4.0. Still really need a way to select "Commute" in the mobile app as well as filtering out commutes from the activity feed.

I vote to filter out commutes. I also want to track them and feel that they should count towards achievements and weekly mileage goals, but I don't want to broadcast my 8-10 commutes per week.

Would love to filter out posts on who has joined a challenge. Once a month it kills my feed.

Another vote for commute tag being enhanced so it doesn't show in followers feeds or club feeds but mileage still counts towards challenges.

Something like a distance slider would work great, you could it so that anything lower than say for example 10km doesn't show up on your feed. Maybe options for the slider could be 3km, 5km, 10km and so on.

An update to the thread:

Wondering if any of you noticed that starting a few weeks ago, we now sort the Dashboard Feed according to upload time instead of activity start time as was our previous sorting method. As of now, if you are unable to upload your activity for a few hours after completion, you won't be "buried" way down on the Feed.
