An activity is the planned or realized execution of a route. So, it can be something of the past or the future.
You can indicate an activity on your routes or on those of others (if these routes are not private)
You can indicate your activity as private (in case you don't want to share the info with others but just want to keep track of it for yourself) or public
You can enter date, time & duration. We calculate your speed
A graph (see above) show a summary of your activities per day, week, month or year. And you can indicate a specific period (start and end date). This allows you to see the fluctuations in your activity (have a look at this example)
You can also look at the individual activities of yourself and of others (if they put them on public)
You can react on the activities of others (e.g. you can ask them if they lmiked the route or not, or if there were problems with the route)
Info you can enter/see per activity
It has the following info:
A date (required)
A RouteYou-user (required): so you have to log in to indicate an activity. The activity is always linked to a user and a route. But you can hide this to the public, so you don't have to share this info with anybody if you don't want to : see further!
