Show a list of all the achievements I've earned on Strava, from KOMs to top 10s, to PRs.
www.veloviewer.com does this and lots more, it makes proper use of your ride data!
It would be good if it also showed KOMs where you are tied with the leader. I have a couple like this and they do not show in my list.
This was an email I sent to Strava support in regards to viewing "Top 10s" in addition to Tropheys and KOMs. They suggested posted this on the Forum to enlist interest and possible changes to the Strava paying customers.
"There needs to be a way to see acheivments such as top 10s in one place rather than just my KOMs. If we were able to view our top 10s it would give many people more motivation to improve their times. Often we receive a top 10 medal but soon forget about it. Then later, I would like to go back and search but Strava does not have this option"
I would like to see this as well!
It would be great to just be able to see a simple list of my fastest times, either a 5km run or 10km run, or my times for particular segments. How hard can it be?
I´ve cancelled mye premium membership due to I now have to pay VeloViewer Pro version to see the best result list.
When Strava adds these features I´ll become a Strava premium paying user again.
I think Strava is loosing a lot of premium customers/money on keeping these features hidden.
This must be THE most requested missing feature!
At the moment I have to star every segment that I ride in order to easily keep track of them, i.e., with out having to search back in time for old rides, this is ridiculous! Just show me a list of every segment I've ever ridden and every KOM I've ever had - PAST & PRESENT!
I am now using VELOVIEWER to gain this seemingly simple functionality. This would seem such an obvious feature, I wonder why Strava don't do it?!
I use VeloViewer to view all my placings and rankings overall. Always a nice feeling when you upload your rides on the site and it shows your improved placings and new segements where you've ranked top 10. Not so good when you see how you've slipped down the rankings...which is what happens most of the time.
Any news from Strava team?
Why not handle "best efforts" like segments, with the ability for anyone to define a best effort type (run/ride) and distance, then see a "leaderboard" of their best efforts for a defined distance with links back to the runs/ries where the times were recorded? If you like that idea, vote "me too" on: https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/55030164-Handle-best-efforts-in-...
the prem membership tipping point for me will be more advertising on this site so we dont have to pay so much
This would be my Premium Member tipping point feature. I will sign up the day this is added.
Great idea. I am surprised Strava doesn't have this feature. I went clicking through old rides from more than a month ago and found that I have placed in a few top 10's and didn't know it! Come on Strava!
This would be a great feature especially if you wanted to set a new personal record. You could see where you need to improve
I really wish the KOM/CR page was an overall top 10 page or if there was a convenient way of seeing all placements achieved (even beyond 10th).
Thanks for sharing Elle...those look awsome...I especially like the PR notification when a friend beats it.
And for the record, you're my favorite Strava employee! :-) Seriously, thanks for keeping us up to date with features & other issues.
Sounds like a good opportunity to share some of the related feature suggestions we've been getting from our users regarding Achievements on Strava. If you agree with the posts below, click the "Me Too" button to vote!
My Top 10s or Almost KOMs:
Rank as a Percentage on Segment Leaderboards:
Notification when someone you Follow beats your PR:
It would be great to, at least, be able to see any top tens I've got. Also, to get a notification when someone bumps you from a top ten position. The competitive side of me would thrive with these features. Thanks.
Would be a great feature and easy to do. As it is, you have to search for a ride where you've done the segment & see if you still hold your place. As additional features, how about an automated email if someone knocks you out of the top 10 and also age group KOM/top 10 awards?
hi, do us tight people not get to see all our pr's, koms and challenges on one page?
Add me to the list of people who want a PR list (top 3 finishes for each category, or something akin to it). Certainly fine with it being a premium feature.
would be good to see achievement history so you can see how your progressing rather than your current position on the board.
+1, good reason to go premium!! simple business-case, isn't it??
Very glad to see the trophy case !!! it it looks pretty clean. Moving forwards I hope it ultimately transitions into something where users can select a combination of a) achievements and b) segment rankings to be displayed. I recorded a top ten result on a tough segment the other day and since it was "hidden" (not ever by me) it is virtually invisible. I would love to be able to place the result in my trophy case. The monthly challenges run the risk of getting a little messy and it would be nice to be able to deselect them in favour of some of the more challenging segments. Anyway, thanks Strava for the trophy case. I am looking forward to see it evolve.
This is a feature I've been banging on about for ages that I really want to see. I also think that I'd like to see top 10% achievements too, because I'm personally more proud of being 1000th ish out of 10000 on popular segments like around Richmond Park or up Box Hill than I am of any of the trophies I've ever earnt including KOM or CRs. I think these types of achievements are better and especially for guys and girls that are good but never going to be good enough to get anywhere near top 10 on these kinds of mechas.
I can't believe this thread has been running for over 2 years before something arrives, lol. As it is it's nice but is really a prerequisite that's long overdue and something an experienced developer could probably knock up in an afternoon, lol.
Something far more useful would be proper analysis of segment placings, position, rankings, threats etc. Heck Strava still can't even tell me how many KoMs or podiums I have, thankfully there's Veloviewer for that!!
I noticed this today also...very cool....Thanks Elle Anderson & the entire Strava team! I love your product!
WOW! I was floored just now to log on and see the Trophy Case on my profile. That is SICK! Thank you very much! Too awesome....
To update: A trophy case for Challenge badges is coming very soon...Thanks for your patience!
It is still to be determined whether this trophy case will some day also hold segment achievements of note, like KOMs/QOMs and CRs.
Keep the feedback coming!
I'd love to see a trophy case/count of challenges completed (not taken part of...) and also # of KOMs, CRs. Those are what drive, or 'Strive' if you will.., for me to use Strava. Let's get on it already!
Yes, please add some sort of digital trophy case to show all my completed challenges and badges. I don't care about KOM/CRs or other things.
Achievements are broken. Basically if someone says any segment is unsafe. Achievements, both personal best and all others are now no longer available. This now makes Strava rather useless to track any goals on popular routes where it seems that one person can stop achievements from being recorded.
I would be encouraged to go premium if this feature became available. After all, a lot of us stravarians are here due to the competitive nature of segments!
Mr Flipper, Try http://veloviewer.com/
What other applications/options are there to do this?
I would like what John Efthimiou said.
Any progress on this? It would be great to be able to track all my best 5km, 10km estimated best efforts in one place. I recently set a new 10km PR and had no idea what my previous one was, so I had to get back through all my previous runs to find it. This feature would be great!
I would definitely go Premium too for the option to see my "Trophy Room/Cabinet/Shelf" or whatever it would be called, for a tab that contained KOMs + trophies + badges + career records. Looks like they would easily get +600 people to sign up premium just for this type update by the looks of others comments... Anyone in the Strava staff paying attention???
Our achievements can be readily calculated from secondary data stores using an asynchronous batch process on elastic compute nodes then updated once a week or on whatever frequency they want. This can be done without impacting the interactive user experience. The question is whether Strava wants pay to make the computations, not whether it is possible or not. Seems like people would pay for it.
Definitely add me to the group calling for a Challenge Badge Trophy List of some kind. I have been searching all over Strava for it thinking I must simply be missing it somewhere. Granted, I only have 2 badges, but I purposefully went after them since they were at the level I felt like I could reach. Seeing as I have nowhere to go to see or share them, it is as if I never achieved them.
With that said, I love Strava and look forward to all future improvements!
Chris as mentioned above use VeloViewer. You can see all your segments ridden, which ones you are dropping down on the leaderboard, any new ones created that you have ridden and a lot of other useful features/info. The last thing I want to see is the Strava servers slow down to view pages if it requires a massive amount of processing to view athletes current placings on all their segments ridden
My Premium expired. However, if this feature was added I would go back to Premium membership. It would be nice to keep track of what trails/roads I am losing position on and what areas I might want to start riding more. It is easy to forget segments over time and this would allow riders to see a big list of KOM/PR/ Top 10 positions on these segments. Long story short. I agree with everyone else on this topic!!!
Would love to get a feature similar to these for example to easily see my 10 best 10 K times (5K, half marathon, etc.). It just took me 15 minutes and had to use BOTH the web and the iPhone app to try and figure out which runs were my top five times for a particular distance.
I would never get a KOM but have a few to 10 cups. This would be great as a premium member to see where they are.
Agreed, have also been asking for this, including 1-3 overall trophies.
Maybe a premium feature... maybe - The 10 most deserving accomplishments instead of 3 random ones? Do we really need them all there when if someone really cares they can clearly see by looking at the segments themselves?
Strava...it's been a year now...people are willing to pay for this functionality...please get this done!
+1 with this suggestion, if one date, this feature arrive... i become Premium instantly =).
Please vote here for a display to showcase all your challenge badges:
Hello! Please if you can add the icon cross-country skiing. Thank you!
Strava's new"ish" challenge page is essentially a trophy page but it does not differentiate between joining a challenge and completing a challenge. Strava appears one line of code away from having a trophy page. They upload the graphic images for all the challenges on that page anyway so bandwidth is likely not a factor in avoiding the trophy page issue.
Hey Ben, congratulations on a great Strava trophy case @VeloViewer.... Just a heads up that it appears to me that my indoor & GPS tracked data is being calculated in my totals towards each challenge on your website. I can't say I really mind but I have been awarded challenges that I did not earn according to Strava. At first I thought I didn't like the displaying of uncompleted challenges but seeing them there will motivate me to make sure I complete them in the future. Either way ! Nice work.
I want to keep my KOMs!!!!
Yes I know people will beat them (that's the idea!), but I have worked hard for it and would like to see it still listed under my achievements (even if I don't hold the current KOM).
There is the slight problem that you get an instant KOM when you make a segment (perhaps have a "needs to be ridden 100 times" rule, or similar to sort this out).
When I discovered that I lost my KOMs this was a huge disinsentive for me to continue using Strava (I like collecting my achievements).
+1 from me too. It would be great to see a nice view of all your earned challenge badges.
+1 here too... wwould be greeeat to have a trophy cabinet... mostly wanted to see all the Achievements earned from doing Challenges in a summary page! aka Medal of Honour / Trophy Cabinet style.
Please implement Strava!
Ben. Thank you! I suspect you're spot on regarding processing load in calculating segment placings. If this is indeed the case, it would sure be nice if Strava stated such and we could get on with other things.
It appears to me there two different groups of strava members that want to see segment placings:
#1, there are those that wish a real-time "Trophy Case" in which to display their palmares and current standings.
#2, there are those like myself that want to use it as an analytical training tool...which is exactly what veloviewer.com provides. Being able to export filtered segment results to a CSV file is icing on the cake!
Thanks again Mr. Lowe, for the explanation and providing such a great service. Donations are coming. Kudos!
(Apologies for the essay) I'm only speculating here as I don't have any inside info on this but this is my take on what any issues might be for Strava:
1. Challenges - to be honest I'm not sure that there would be any performance issues with providing a page of completed (or semi-completed) challenges that you have entered. Individual totals are all very easy to work out on the fly but I would guess that Strava would also cache the result of each Challenge after the cut-off date. While a Challenge is ongoing then they may not want to cache the leaderboard as it is subject to too much change but seeing as these are of a limited number then perhaps these could be worked out on the fly when generating an aggregated view. There may well be some show-stoppers that I'm not aware of though.
2. All segment placings (the OP) - this is far more tricky. I would guess that when you look at any leaderboard on Strava they calculate your position there and then. Some segments have 10's of thousands of athletes on them so if every time a new PR is set it would mean updating the current position on potentially 30,000 records below that person, and that could be happening every 5 minutes as people upload their rides. Also there are the gender/weight/age/time permutations of each leaderboard as well which multiply those process up heaps more. That is both taxing on the servers and potentially expensive on a cloud hosting environment and also for 99.99% of those records completely unnecessary as chances are hardly any of those people will actually view their placing before it changes again. The downside however is that in order to find, say, all top 10 placings, it will be necessary to calculate the athlete's placings on possibly all of their segments (some people have many thousands of segments) to find out which ones are relevant. Basically a non-starter from a scalability point of view.
The way I get around this with VeloViewer is by getting each user to choose when that big calculation (i.e. check all of your placings) is done and until you perform that process again all of those stats are static. I can get away with that because mine is a niche site for people who are prepared to put up with that little bit of inconvenience but I don't think it would be an acceptable experience for the average Strava user on the main Strava site.
Thanks Ben, you are a legend. Your "Strava Challenge Trophy Cabinet" is perfect. Perhaps you can clarify for us how much load/expense is really involved, and/or perhaps give us some insight into why maybe Strava have not implemented this directly? Thanks again.
I subscribe to this thread and following on from this most recent flurry of comments I've spent this evening adding a Strava Challenge Trophy Cabinet to VeloViewer. Info here: http://blog.veloviewer.com/the-strava-challenges-trophy-cabinet-liv... I hope it ticks the box for a few of you.
Well...all this is now a mute point. I just checked out veloviewer.com. Awesome. It pulls in all your Strava data and displays it with just about any type of filter imaginable. Further, it allows you to dump ALL of your segment data to a CSV file, which you can then import into EXCEL or OpenOffice . Problem solved. I can now sort on any column desired. It took less than 30 seconds to download ALL of my 300 rides, 174 segments and provide stats that I never knew existed. If veloviewer can do it, certainly Strava can. 'Sorry to waste all of your time bantering this around, but I'm done. For those wanting Challenge changes, I wish you the best...maybe veloviewer.com will eventually accommodate you guys as well. Time to ride...be safe everyone...
Anthony Cree, you are absolutely correct. My comments were unclear due to my poor editing. I cancelled my premium subscription months ago and wrote Strava a final comprehensive message via support stating it was cancelled solely because challenge badges were not visible and Strava's response in relation to the matter were inadequate.
Unfortunately, the way cancelling premium works, you remain subscribed to premium until what you have already paid lapses. So it is possible Strava will not notice any financial drop of from cancelled premium memberships for many many months after they are cancelled.
Thanks James, I appreciate your comment. You're right, I have to click on each starred segment. So...after clicking thru each of my 4 pages of starred segments, can I remember the ranking of each?....can I remember the one's that I think I can improve on?...can I remember how many seconds I have to make up to get to the next rank? Well...no, I can't I must say. I would like a report that I can sort by clicking on the column headers... such as segment distance, power, rank, even by name. The starred segments aren't even ordered alphabetically right now! Yes, for 9 or 10 starred segments, it's not an issue since they all appear on one page. With multiple pages, it becomes extremely frustrating to do any analysis of your results. Thanks for reading.
@ Carlton - continuing to pay for Strava premium while they ignore these requests sends them the wrong message.
Carlton D, well said. Thank you for an excellent explanation. I completely understand what you're saying and totally agree that challenges and segment rankings are two totally different topics. Challenges should indeed have it's own thread. Let's hope (some more) that Strava will at least respond to us if these are viable features or not. If these features are too database costly to implement, it would be nice that they state such so we can cease the endless begging!!! :-) Strava?...how about some response?...are these being considered or not? Thanks.
Yes Bill, you have to preform a single mouse click of the starred segments to see where you are ranked ... 10/250 etc. I just checked a 9-10 of my starred segment placements in less than a minute. That is not really a big deal when considering the server time to post hourly/daily data for all users on all starred segments of which many users wouldn't check regularly anyway.
Bill Anderson, yes I am talking about "Strava Challenges" like the "Extender Challenge". I previously joined challenges and encouraged others to join as well and though we lived in different states we would use strava to cheer each other on as we completed the challenges together. Perhaps I could have avoided some confusion if I have said challenges were shared instead of saying they were shared challenges.
These challenges do not strictly fit within the original post of this thread, but they certainly fit within the "trophy case idea" and within the topic of this thread which is "Show me all of my achievements on Strava". Since the need to show Challenge Badges was first raised in this thread by Kenneth Trueman 14 months ago (July 13, 2012) the concept of a trophy case just for challenges has received a lot of support.
I have asked Strava repeatedly for a separate threat for showing Strava challenges completed but this request has been rejected in significant part because Strava believe discussion of challenges belongs in this thread. Strava are wrong. Showing "Rankings" and "Challenges" are two very different things, Both are valuable but to very different audiences. Showing challenge badges would require almost no resources and is valued by newbies and social riders/runners. Rankings [may] require more resources and are valued by those more serious who are challenging themselves via the rankings.
re: Strava making a profit, I paying premium in order to give back to strava even though there was no added value for doing so. Many others do the same. I would also be willing to make a voluntary tokan payments for specific challenges or participate in a special paid challenge once a year to Ride as far as you can in day or 1 week, etc, with the notion that it is Strava's annual fundraising drive and our opportunity to pay back a little. Give participants a Challenge Badge and add a logo to the badge showing that they supported the strava community through this challenge. Then show the badge in a trophy case with all our other badges.
There are plenty of ways to generate money through happy willing participants..
Yes, James White, but the "starred" function does not show your current standing for that segment...only your best time and the KOM time. You have no idea where you actually rank. You have to drill down into each segment in your starred list to see where you rank. I'd like to see some of the "starred" columns disappear and add a ranking column. That's all I'm suggesting. I'm done on this topic! :-) Thanks for reading.
I would expect a trophy case for all completed challenges other than the monthly series at a minimum. Segments can be viewed/updated through the "starred" function, KOM's obviously have their tab.
Carlton D, I don't know what you mean by "shared challenges"...what am I missing? I believe this feature request, originally started by Rosie back in Feb of 2012, is regarding a page that displays your current standings on all segments ridden. Are you referring to challenges such as the "Extender Challenge" which runs to the end of this month?
To those following this thread who want a trophy case for achievements but do not care about challenges, I apologise for my long rant above. Unfortunately, Strava continues deny us having a separate thread to discuss the need to display challenges completed. Another bizarre decision by Strava which completely baffles me.
I can actually imagine some reasons this might not be a cheap feature to implement, from an operational cost perspective. If you what you're asking for is "for each segment I've ever run, show me a page with my current rank on that segment," tracking that could lead to troubling fan-out issues in database writes. Someone finishes a run on a popular segment, sets a new record, then everyone below that has to get a new ranking written to their personal record. So one run finishing results in, say, several hundred or several thousand database writes. You can do that, but it's not a thing to do on a whim.
Seems like, other than people wanting the public version, you can also get an approximation of this with "starred segments"?
(When I originally commented here I thought the ask was basically for the distance-based "Estimated Best Efforts" that's on your profile, but which I was unable to find for a while, because herp.)
I absolutely agree with Chicken Legs. There is little value to a trophy case that is not on display for all members. Even if it was publicly displayed but only for premium subscribers that sends the wrong message. "Shared" challenges are vital and are what got me hooked on Strava.
I used Strava infrequently until I saw a challenge that was possible but very difficult and along with my brother I used it to motivate me to stretch myself, and Strava became a part of my daily life and part of the daily discourse between myself, friends and family members (many of whom joined strava). I then did more challenges and shared Strava with many colleges at work and was hooked before realising after the challenges are over any record of them is essentially gone forever.
I did finish that challenge (out of principle) but with much cursing and a bitter taste in my mouth. My subsequent challenges have been external to Strava (there are plenty of other options), communications with friends and family no longer include strava and I have cancelled my premium membership. I am not a die hard rider and not really in KOM contention, so without "shared" challenges, for me, there is no reason to engage with others in the Strava community anymore. Its is sad, and pointless Strava have stalled on this low cost, easy to implement core feature for soo long.
With all due respect Chicken Legs (that's a great name BTW), what advertisements do you see on this site? None! So..how does Strava make money so that they can continue to enhance its features? Well..it's not advertisements, and I for one would like to keep it that way. Most of us have had to deal with free sites where you have to put up with the constant parade of ads getting in the way. That said, I'm all for Strava making money with Premium memberships as you should be too. Looking at the user feedback, it seems this feature has a good deal of demand which a majority of people are willing to pay for. I might be wrong, but I think most of us want this feature for our own use rather than for showing off . The word "Trophy Case" suggests otherwise, but I personally would like a report in which I can see my current standings on my favorite segments for the purpose of identifying those on which I have a chance of improving. After all, I'm fairly certain there are many cyclists out there that may not be top ten segment athletes...but they still would like to see how they're improving. Just my opinion...thanks.
I think the "Premium only" idea comes from users who think the bandwidth cost increase may be a reason why Strava isn't moving on this one. I don't know the actual cost of X amount of users refreshing their "trophy case with low res graphic badges" X amount of times a day/week/month/year etc. I read an article a few years ago suggesting that Strava wasn't breaking even yet. Locally it appears as if the amount of premium users has increased 10 fold since two years ago but who knows.
Commenters suggesting making this a premium-only feature: what's the point of a trophy case if you can't show it off because it's behind the premium paywall? C'mon internet racers, use your heads.
In all high schools an colleges there is a trophies case. I suggest that on the top line where we see DASHBOARD, TRAINING, EXPLORE, CHALLENGES, and SHOP. There be a new one added called TROPHY CASE. Only current KOMs and top tens.
This would be a great premium feature. You already have the Starred Segments tab page on the "My Segments" page. Merely add a column that indicates my standing in each of my starred segments (only show a number if in top ten). Going a bit further regarding the Starred Segments tab page, I'd like to see the following changes:
That's it! With the above Starred Segments page format, I can tell at a glance EXACTLY where I stand on any segment without having to drill to the segment page. Thank you for your time!
I would definitely like to see this feature. Isn't it just a quick programming thingy?? come-on....
I think Veloviewer's trophy cabinet is down for the short/medium term.
I'm new to Strava BUT this is something I thought it would already have. If you can see real time segments then P.B.'s should be easy. Seems like an easy bit of extrapolation coding. (still loving it though!)
I really wish Strava would publicly address this issue. A simple explanation of why they are not developing the concept would suffice. Wether it be server/data demand, cost, perhaps it is being explored via partner relationships, or not inline with Strava's philosophy. Which ever the reason an answer would be appreciated.
Agreed, folks have been asking for this for quite a while now. It's just an added display of data that is already kept. Get it together pretty please!
Find this hard to believe that it doesn't already exist. The data and achievement is obviously calculated upon hardware import (or Strava app save) so why not start "collecting" those achievements in another database/table so they can be saved? I realize there may be technical hurdles that we're not aware of but seems pretty straight forward. Aren't achievements/PR's the reason why most people share to sites like Strava to begin with?
+1 for all the above. I'm already suckered into paying for the site, but being able to track top 10's would be awesome. This feature would definitely motivate me (both to ride and continue paying for premium).
Totally agree! A digital trophy case of PRs and Badges would be awesome!
huge +1 for a list of running PRs at difference distances
+1 for the ability to see top K (5 or 10) efforts for the same distances (perhaps uniqued at a per-activity level, if that makes it any easier; so you can't set all of your top 3 mile efforts in one 5k)
+1 for digital finishers badge trophy case, even if premium.
