Can we get the option to manually sync workouts to 3rd party connected apps?

Many apps are able to upload activities to Strava. However there are others apps I like to track activities in like Garmin Connect. But Garmin Connect isn’t supported as a connected app by as many other apps as Strava is. Strava automatically syncs activities to Garmin Connect, but not activities from other apps.

So right now I have to log into Strava, download the .fit file, then upload it into Garmin Connect. As an example: I do a rowing workout using the virtual game EXR. EXR uploads the activity to Strava, but not Garmin Connect. I have to pull the data from Strava manually on a computer, and manually import it into Garmin Connect.

instead of having to do this the roundabout way, add a share or sync option to connected apps. That way we can easily and seamlessly sync a workout to a connected app manually directly from within the Strava app while viewing the activity. Doesn’t need to be automatic, but just having the option to do so with a quick click in the app itself, would make the process smoother, quicker, and easier.
