Feedback on “Your Weekly Snapshot” feature

I’m now seeing the “Your Weekly Snapshot” at the top of my feed when using the app. I do not enjoy how this serves almost entirely to make me feel bad about my effort so far in the current week. This is detrimental to my experience on Strava. 

My training schedule each week is highly variable due to plenty of factors such as work, personal commitments, weather, etc. I should not have to see a feature telling me I haven’t been working as hard when I have been putting in more or the same amount of effort as my schedule allows. 

Please enable a toggle for this feature so we do not have to see it.

As someone recovering from an eating disorder and trying to use Strava in a mindful and healthy way, I completely agree with your statement and find the weekly snapshot really off-putting, and it appeals to that negative voice I fight daily that tells me I'm not doing enough.  I have the tools and mindset to combat this now, but I really don't see any positives for this feature.

your are your work, embrace it, don’t hide from it

Someone should tell the Strava Developers they didn’t include a TMZ conversion in their weekly CRON/or api which resets/fetches snapshots. Just a little QC note 🙂

Agreed. The totals are whatever, I don't find them useful but I don't actively dislike them either. But the arrows are totally divorced from what good training entails. Let me have the option to turn them off!

Absolutely love this feature, it helps me to push myself to train. It is not clear which week serves as baseline, anyway, it is a first useful Feature for me since a few years.

Fantastic.  So they should make it optional.   You'd want it enabled, others want it disabled.   Choice is a great thing.  

🤛 keep pushing

There is an arrow and a number under each column (activities, time, and distance). The arrows make no sense. What does the number refer to?

And yes, make the feature optional.

Agree. Please give the option to get rid of it. I hate this feature too! It's very like micro-manage-y, it's truly not helpful and feels like a wagging finger that you haven't "done enough" that week. It's not necessary! I can't imagine it would be a helpful feature to very many people with the way that human psychology works. I can imagine the sort of idea behind it but... it's not working great.

Ready, Get Set, Go!
