My sentiments entirely.  I've also cancelled my subscription, but would re-subscribe if filtering were made possible.  Not sure if Strava are listening!

They clearly aren't.

But you can filter stuff in your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari) by using the Strava Sauce extension.

Sauce looks impressive for viewing additional user stats, and yes it does provide the ability to block virtual activities. This does not however provide us a means to choose the types of activities that appear on our feed. Personally all I want to see are cycling activities IRL or virtual. No runs, walks, weightlifting, tennis, pickle ball, kayaking, etc. etc. In it's current state I have no need for strava sauce, I get more data than I need from free strava. Until Strava allows me to filter activities that display on my feed I'll be a free user.

Another +1 for Sauce for Strava (https://www.sauce.llc) to filter unwanted activities the main feed. I have recently installed it on my PC for use with Chrome and with the Kiwi Browser on my android phone which allows extensions to be used on a mobile device (unlike Chrome). Looks it can be installed on Firefox and Apple devices too. One must configure the activities to filter in the extension options, for example see my current configuration in the attached image. Sauce for Strava also provides performance stats which I will take a deeper look at at some point.

This filtering is exactly the feature we are all demanding from Strava and clearly demonstrates it cannot be difficult to implement. Come on Strava .... take some inspiration from what the community have been requesting for what seems like forever.

I've looked at sauce and it is interesting.  A couple of questions, can one "kudo" activities and have those kudos show up for the Strava user?
 
Second, I did read the site but do not see a clear privacy policy regarding selling of data.   If more is known about that please post.  Thanks.

@bobcounts there are some statements about Sauce for Strava data usage on the chrome extension webpage (https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/sauce-for-strava/eigiefcapdcdmncdghkeahgfmnobigha) and a privacy policy on the developers webpage (https://www.sauce.llc/sauce4strava/pages/privacy.html) although it is hard to tell exactly how data might be used.

One can kudos and comment on other users activities exactly as one would normally do on the Strava webpage or app -- it is just filtering what you see on the webpage rather than being a separate application. 

I should caveat that I am no expert on the extension features but like the behaviours I have seen so far.

I've been trying out Sauce for the past few days and for the most part it works as advertised and allows me to filter certain types of activities from my feed. There are a few things like Yoga and Weight Lifting that still show up even though I have created filters to block them. My guess is that as soon as Strava can figure out a way to disable this extension or work around it they will. There have been other extensions in the past that offered the same functionality that worked just fine until one day they just stopped working.

OK I managed to figure out using Sauce for Strava how to hide those activities that do not interest me. It is a very tedious process and it would have been nice if I were able to hide all activities and then unhide those few activities that I do wish to see. Until Strava incorporates this ability into their app, I will remain a non-paying member.

I have a 3.5 mile bike commute, each way, and sometimes bike during the workday. I don't like to fill my posts with these commutes, but the distance does add up over a week or a month. Lots of small posts get (rightfully) ignored by my followers. It would be nice to be able to aggregate these commuting rides into a single post, for a once-a-week or per month summary post, so that it doesn't dilute out my training posts, and those in the feed of the other people that my followers are following.

  • I find it cynical that the only contact we get from Strava on this suggestion in the years that has been suggested and supported by users is when Strava merges a barely related topic with it. I'm sure they fully understand what is being asked for here, it's made very clear by a reading of the topic but have we seen any feedback on that? .... No! Very disappointing.

Matt_Haigh agreed.

 The ability for "paid" subscribers to filter the types of activities that appear on their feeds is a basic ask that would allow users some control over what they see, or don't see on their feed.

This ask has nothing to do with how individuals can summarize their activities by activity type? Not a related topic at all.

Another off topic comment: If everyone would simply default all of their activities to "Only Me" aka private none of their followers would need to be bombarded with their frequent mundane activities. They can release interesting activities to "everyone" if they so choose by editing their activity.

I would like to hide Zwift activities specifically. I follow some riders and only really care about their outdoor activities or indoor treadmill. This is due in part to my jealousy of not having zwift but also to minimize posts in my feed without removing users I follow.

I’d like to be able to order my feed to show my favourited athletes first. This must be simple to achieve, surely?

I guess my only solution now is to unfriend the users who's activities I don't really care about, to free up some space in my dashboard feed.

Since Strava has grown from just a few sports to many, and so many people asking for activity filtering, which makes sense, why aren't we seeing responses from Strava on how this will be addressed?  Surely this can be done. 

People are uploading activities that have no place in our feed.  (get the mail; mow the lawn; fishing; went to class; etc)  It's all garbage in my feed and annoying to scroll through activities (even some legit) that I have no interest in.  

Please add filtering ability, at least for subscribers.  Let our Strava community know where Strava stands on this, and what we can expect.

Thank you, Richard Forzani
