I got this from an archived idea. This should be 100% a setting - I dont need to publish my segment goals for the world to see. Sharing a goal, whether to specific contacts or everyone should be a user-setting.  Here is the idea in brief:


The goal feature may get more use if you can set goals privately and not just publicly.

I just set up my first goal however I deleted it immediately upon finding it public in the feed. I like the idea of setting goals on Strava but I am reluctant to set up goals if others can view them. My preference would be to only allow myself to view the goal.

Similar to having personal goals outside of Strava, you have the option to share your personal goals with others if you wish to.

Personally, I feel new and incomplete goals have no place in the activity feed.

Instead, in addition to publishing a new/incomplete goal directly to the activity feed (which is currently the default), perhaps an additional option to automatically publish to the activity feed upon the completion of the goal?

Below is an example of how I would use the settings if they were available:

Who can see this goal?

🞅 Everyone
 Only me
🞅 Followers

Goal publish settings

 Publish to activity feed now [disabled]
 Publish to activity feed when the goal is complete

I'd use goals more if they were private. I avoid it presently.

I strongly agree with this suggestion. I wont use this feature for exact this reason.

10000% the user should be able to choose if they want the goal to be private or public. I don't use it for that reason.

Should be an option to have goals private. Doesn't make sense that you can have you're activites private but a goal.

I find it really annoying that goal setting is being pushed onto the timeline, without any option to make them private. Goals are initially a personal funcion, so i don't understand why they're being pushed in the first place. Fully agree with above solution.

another vote for making goal setting private.  I stopped using goals once I learned that all of my friends were getting notified about them.  this should be default setting.
