When I search in My Activities I must give the exact word used as one of the words in the activity title.

Searching with "morning" gives (a lot of) hits, but searching with "morn" gives zero hits.
I'm used to searching with partial words and think that it would be a nice feature to add to the Strava website.

Hi valldeby,

Thanks for submitting your idea to add a workout effort estimator. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.

Yes, the search could definitely be better.


Strava, please improve the search!

I have 12+ years of activities on Strava. Finding anything by name is nearly impossible.

Here is an example. I am going to do a run on Grand Ridge trail, so I want to look at my past activities. If I search for "Grand Ridge" as two words, it returns me all activities with either "Grand" or "Ridge". I don't know why this has been implemented to use the OR combination of entered words. That is not how people do searches. The more words I enter the narrower search should become. But with the activity search that is opposite. Please change that.

Searching for partial words may also be a good idea, but I suspect, based on how fast the search is, Strava probably uses indexing of words, which would make the partial search impossible.
