Context: Since my GPS data is always so crappy and I got sick of deleting/reuploading activities, I no longer automatically sync my runs from Garmin to CityStrides, and instead upload the edited .gpx files to Runkeeper. Then I go to my CityStrides and press “Sync Now”. For the past few months, this has worked great!
For the past couple weeks, can’t remember precisely when, I no longer get the friendly and helpful green popup bubble confirming that I have a sync in the queue. That gives me agitation about whether or not the sync request went through, even when the URL changes to
https://citystrides.com/users/15559/sync_next, because the sync/processing seem to take a variable amount of time even when there is no delay for either supporter sync/processing on the status page. For example, this morning I was waiting more than a couple hours after pressing ‘Sync Now’ and the unprocessed activity only just appeared in my list as I was typing all this out. Other times it’s more or less instantaneous.
Anyways, it’s just a bit frustrating since my experience doesn’t seem to align with the status page. Hoping this information helps you clean up any issues in the manual sync process in the next releases.
