Considering how much screen space each activity takes in the feed, which is almost entire screen, it is strange there is enough space for only 2 or 3 activity metrics. Often it is just distance and elevation gain, and even duration isn't shown, like in the screenshot below. Imagine someone doing a monster effort and spending 30+ hours doing an ultrarun, and then the time ends up not being shown so others cannot fully appreciate the effort. Arguably, spending that much time on feet is an achievement by itself.
Furthermore, in the example below, why there are only two fields shown? There is enough space for the 3rd field. But it seems the horizontal space is taken by the "Achievements" word which I think is completely redundant.
And furthermore, I think the feed would likely be much improved by taking two rows to display activity fields.
Thanks for your feedback! Based on your screenshot, you are talking about the Mobile Feed, not the Web Feed, correct?
The activity data you see on your Mobile Feed/dashboard may be slightly different from activity to activity depending on the activity type and the activity itself.
For example, for a running activity, the elevation will appear in place of pace/speed if the elevation gain is greater than 100ft per mile. Otherwise, pace/speed will be visible on the dashboard.
The information you see may also be dependent on the length of the text. For example, if you are not seeing elevation or pace but an empty space this may be because the time and distance take up more room on the screen, and therefore the next set of data (elevation or pace) is not displayed since there is limited room.
Yes, exactly. This post is about the mobile feed. I think most users use the mobile app most of the time.
I understand that the way it is currently implemented the app UI can't show more content because there is no room. But my two points are:
1) There is actually a room as you can see on my screenshot, and with some small changes in the UI implementation it could very well fit one more field. For example it is kind if silly that the space is taken by the redundant "Achievements" word at the top. I know those are achievements already and there isn't a need to repeat that in every single activity in the feed. This UI is an example of "form over function".
2) Why there isn't a second row of data fields? Considering how much space is taken by other stuff, it is kind of strange that there is so little screen space is given to the information that actually matters.
And by the way, why can't I edit the title of my post? I made a typo by typing "shoe" instead of "show" (could be an auto-correct on my phone) and now there doesn't seem to be a way to fix that.
Thanks for getting back to us! Sorry you weren't able to edit the post title - I've corrected that now.
