It would be really useful to enable the ability for your users to edit an activity they have completed.  Stats that could be added would include time, distance, elevation gain, heart rate, calories etc.

Sometimes we forget to start an activity but when we remember to add it we have to let it run for the whole duration so it records the time spent on that activity. For example today I did pilates, I forgot to start the activity, so I added it later but I only let it run for 6 seconds rather than the 45 mins thinking I could stop the activity, have it uploaded to my time line and simply edit the duration to 45 min. Sadly this does not seem possible. I'm sure other users would like to be able to amend their session so it can be adjusted to reflect time, distance and duration for other activities. So hopefully this makes sense and other users will find this feature equally useful. Thank you.

Hi @Soren ! Any news about the update on the App. I agree, that would be awesome to have this tiny update? Reason: Rouvy workouts do not sync altitude gains with Strava. If want to keep track on my altitude meters I need to add them manually. The easiest would be with the mobile app.

Agreed, that the best would be full altitude sync with Rouvy in the first place 😏

Cheers, Stephan

I’m just back from my second spin class of the week. Heart rate data and training zone are great, but please allow me to add the miles ridden.

Yes!! or a if you upload a indoor cycling activity, the mileage would need to be added manually since it does not track it in the first place. This should be a must for Strava.

I agree that the option to input vertical gain when creating a manual activity in the app (not just in the browser version) would be very useful for a lot of people, myself included.

Also, I don't understand why the gain from manual activities shows as zero in certain places. For example, it is not included with the year-to-date total or all-time total under the "My Stats" section of my profile. It also shows as zero in the "My Activities" section, but does display accurately in the "Training Log" section. I understand the competitive nature between Strava users and why the designers wouldn't want to count manual activities toward anything competitive or for awarding the digital badges, but it would be a big help in keeping track of my own stats for non-competitive purposes if manual vert was included is these places. @Soren Any insight to this? Thank you!

I too would love to be able to add elevation to manual workouts.  I found that I couldn’t even edit and add elevation on the web to my previously created manual virtual rides where I had created them in the app.

I couldn’t agree more, having the ability to add elevation from the app and it count in my areas (ytd totals etc) is the only thing really missing from the app CX, when will strava review this ?

This is a must have - when syncing from other apps (i.e., rowing) it would be great to add the meter’s rowed since usually other apps don’t track distances on an indoor row machine. 

this is the same for treadmills.

So, I have a goal of 5 Hours a week, I got interrupted during a workout, in the middle, around 37 Minutes in.  I worked out for a total of 1 hour 17 minutes, when I resumed the workout to get the last 37 or so Minutes it was saved it logged 3:45.   I just want to change the time to 1:17 to match the activity I did.  According to Strava I met my goal for the week, but actually I am Short about an hour and 10 Minutes.

I arrived here because my garmin watch measured 6.17 miles on a recent 10k race, and so I didn't get the 10k PR I was looking forward to.

Was hoping to find a pre-thought out solution allowing modifications, but preventing accomplishment fraud.  Thinking briefly about this a simple and elegant solution is not jumping out at me.  

I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere, but is there any expectation that strava data is not fraudulent?  Or do we simply say that whatever a person wants to add to their personal profile is their business, if they want to post a 1:57:00 marathon, no problem, go for it.

It goes without saying that these edited and manually entered posts are not eligible for recognition outside of a personal profile, KOM, Local Legent, and whatever else there is.

In summary, if the community expects authentic data on all profiles on this platform, then we cannot allow for editing.  If the community allows each user to put whatever stats they want on their profile, then we should allow editing.  And no case should an edited run be eligible for any public acknowlegements.

@zacksmith i agree about preventing fraud inputs, however my intent would be for “indoor activities” specifically as there is no way to track the distance when on a treadmill or on a row machine when it was synced from a let’s say “whoop”.

zacksmithWe are already allowed to do this, with the manual activity. You manually a new activity and input the milage and time. You can put that you ran 100km in 1 minute if you'd like. So if we are able to go to that extent, why could we not simply add mileage to an indoor cycling activity, in which there is no way to track mileage? In my proposition, it is either we manually input the mileage to an existing uploaded activity, or that the mileage is absent, there are the 2 options.  But if we're looking to change the mileage on an outdoor activity, which is tracked through a map, then that is a different story.

Again. The point is not to look for any fake entries within my profile. In the contrary. If (out of season) I train indoor and make for a month or two the same trainings, I want to see my progress (speed, caddence, heart, power etc.). The distance and speed are pretty correct calculated without any GPS from wheel, caddence, gear. But if the breaks are not considered, the the results are worthless.

I see only two possibilities:

1. Extend Strava by "Indoor setting" - where the breaks would be ignored

2. Set moving (working) time as the only considered value used in any calculation. If I stop walking, swimming, pedalling, row etc., or if I use the STOP button, the time shall stop.
