Community is a new feature of RIDE COMMAND that creates a place to find and share all the best rides, places and events. It includes an activity feed to see recently added content and an explore page that allows discovery of content by type, location, ride length, rating, date and more.
The Events tab has been replaced with the new Community tab, where events can now be found. The Community tab on both the RIDE COMMAND app and website will allow users to post public content such as events, rides, places, collections and areas from their RIDE COMMAND account.
With Community, you can interact with other users on the app and website. RIDE COMMAND users will be able to view public content posted by other users. The update allows you to filter content by location, ride length, dates and rating, as well as search recent posts.
You can also like and rate another user's content. Like counts and ratings are visible to anyone on the RIDE COMMAND website or app.
Users can save content and refer back to the content later from their Saved list. On saved content, any updates/changes made to the public content will be visible.
Users also have the option of saving a copy of public content besides events. A private copy of the item is saved in the user’s Rides/Places tab. Updates to the original public item will not be reflected in the user’s saved copy.
You can also create and post public or private events. Public events will automatically be posted to the public activity feed. When creating a new event, the user can now add photos, tracked rides, planned routes and website links to the event description.
How to Use Community on the RIDE COMMAND App
The community page can be accessed by selecting COMMUNITY at the bottom of the screen. The first screen, shown below, is the Activity feed, where all recent posts are shown and ordered by most recent first. Tapping on any item shows its details page, where you can see the full details, rate, thumbs up, view the 3D flyover (for tracks and routes) and view the content on the full map.
To search and filter posts, select the Explore tab at the top of the page.
On the explore page, choose what content you would like to explore: Events, Rides or Places.
Once you have selected the content you wish to view, you will see a FILTER button in the top-right corner of the screen.
Filters vary slightly by content type:
- Events can be filtered by date, location and ride length.
- Rides can be filtered by rating, location and ride length.
- Places can be filtered by rating and location.
How to Use Community on the RIDE COMMAND Website
You can click on the Community tab from any page on the RIDE COMMAND website. This will bring you to the Community Activity Feed. Posts are organized into three categories: Events, Rides and Places.
On the RIDE COMMAND website, you can see all three categories at once or choose a specific category.
1. Filter posts by category.
2. See content you have saved and events you have created.
3. Search recent posts.
4. Filter content by location, ride length, etc., as shown below.
Clicking on a post/event in the activity feed will open that item, showing additional details. You can also like, save content, save a copy, share, download and rate that item. Saved posts/events will show up in your Saved list on the right-hand side of the page, and they will be updated with any changes from the original poster. Items you have saved as a copy will not be updated with changes from the original poster.
