What determines the ordering of activity types on my in-app Profile tab?

When I go to the "You" tab on the mobile app (I'm on iOS), for some reason "Walk" shows up first, followed by All Run, Run, and Bike. "Run" is set as my primary sport, so I can't think of any reason why Walk would be shown first.

I've attached a screenshot below. It seems unintuitive to me, and there's no way to change the ordering.

Thanks for the info, Dan. I cross-referenced this with our engineers and the ordering appears to be working as intended. The changes that were rolled out made it so that the order is determined by the number of activities per sport type, the more frequent and recent, the more prominent it will be in the chart. However, if you've carried out multiple activities that fall under one of the Sport Type groups (All Ride/Run-E-Sport) -- e.g. Ride and Mountain Bike Ride, then the "All Ride" category would appear before "Ride" or 'Mountain Bike Ride". Apologies for any confusion, I hope it's clear now.

If you have any feedback in regards to the way it's displayed or ordered, we're eager to hear about it and I'll be happy to pass it along.

Hey Dan, that's interesting, thanks for corroborating that. Let me look into this a bit further, I'll get back to you next week!

Hey Dan, the order on the personal progress chart is based on how much time you’ve spent doing each sport type over the last 12 weeks -- your overall number of activities for each of them and default sport type don't factor into that. So the sports you spend the most time doing will be shown first. Hope this clarifies that for you.

Thanks Soren. In that case, perhaps there's something wrong or buggy? I just added up the time spent on my activities in the past 12weeks... and I've spent ~29hrs walking, and ~48 hours running, ~46 hrs biking. So there's no reason Walk should be first on my list.

Dan, my bad. Apparently, there were some changes made to the ordering of the chart when Trail Sports were rolled out on 6/15 and it depends on the number of activities carried out. However, Grouped sports (All Ride, All Run, All E-Ride) will always show up first. Can you let me know if "All Run" appears before "Walk" on your chart now?

The order on my Profile tab is "Walk", "All Run", "Run", "All Ride", "Ride", "Trail Run", "Swim", "Virtual Ride"

Note I am using a beta version of the app, if this is relevant: 271.0.0 (r34012)

Thanks for following up, makes sense as a reasonable approach. I had one recent week with a lot of short walks, which might have biased the algorithm to bubble up Walk to the top, despite having less aggregate time over 12 weeks.

I'm not sure how to articulate a preferred solution. I don't prefer seeing Walk as the top result, but I can't deny I did a bunch of walks last week that probably tipped the scale.. it just seems a bit weird to me, since I generally actually run/bike way more than walking ( just not recently), and Run is my "Preferred" Activity Type in my settings.

Hey Soren, I'm still not sure why Walk is the first activity listed for me. I haven't been doing much walking the past month, but a ton of running.. and "All Run" still shows second, after Walk.

For example, since September 1, I've spent ~14 hrs walking over 20 activities. On the other hand, I've done ~29 hours of running (including Trail Running), over 24 activities (combined Run & Trail Run).

IMO you should really take Time Spent into account in the sorting mechanism (i spend 2x the time running compared to walking); but even if you're only looking at Count, My Run count is more than Walk..

Thanks!

Hey Dan,

I appreciate the feedback and I'm sorry to hear that the ordering of your personal progress chart is still frustrating. I've gone ahead and raised an improvement ticket with our developers to document this and hopefully we can make the ordering better in the near future and base it on time spent instead of activity number count.
