Adding another tracker reset my account

Sometimes they don’t know you can connect multiple trackers to a single CityStrides account in the Settings page.

Perhaps this is worth a separate topic but recently when I tried to add another tracker to my account, it reset the existing connection, so effectively I could only choose one tracker.

I don’t know if I’ve given this a correct title - I don’t really understand what happened. Can you explain in other words / further detail?

Sure can.
Present state, I am connected only to Strava.

If I connect to Garmin as well, my Strava connection is removed (and the history on my profile reflects only Garmin).

Unless I’m missing a setting or something, both connections should persist, correct?

Ah, it looks like when I add the connection it is logging me into to another user. So perhaps a merge will solve this as well.

Strava: https://citystrides.com/users/4360

Garmin: https://citystrides.com/users/41742

Is it at all possible that you had already signed into CityStrides separately via these two services?

I cannot reproduce the direct experience of clicking connect and being taken to a different CityStrides account. I can reproduce it by taking a longer path:

  • log into CityStrides through serviceA
  • log out of CityStrides
  • log into CityStrides through serviceB
  • log out of CityStrides & log back in through serviceA
  • click the connect button for serviceB in the settings page
  • this logs me into CityStrides as the second account (through serviceB)

I can merge your two accounts. Let me know if you’re OK with your Garmin-connected account merging into your Strava-connected account (the lower user ID, in case you’re into that). Oh, I’ll also cancel one of your subscriptions after the merge!

Thanks for reporting this.

Yes that is very likely a possibility. When I rediscovered CityStrides recently I think I tried logging into Garmin only to realize I already had an account with Strava. So I think your reproduction path makes sense with my scenario - it just wasn’t clear to me at first that when I connected to the other service it was actually logging me out of one account and into another.

Totally fine with merging them and I think one of the accounts may already have a cancelled subscription, but if you could check that would be great. Thanks for all your work!!

Alright, your Garmin-connected account is merging into your Strava-connected account now. I confirmed that was the one with the canceled subscription. :+1: If you’re currently logged in via Garmin, you’ll probably be logged out after the merge happens. You can log in with either service & be taken to the same CityStrides account after that.

Thanks again - this all tips me off to some possible ways of letting people self-merge accounts.
