Filter tracks by age
« on: March 07, 2014, 18:11:46 »
It would be nice to be able to filter displayed tracks by age (for example only show tracks created in the last N days) to avoid cluttering the map. This parameter could be in the track group settings page.

Use case: I save my cycle rides and track runs every day, and after a few weeks the map becomes unreadable and quite slow showing all these tracks. I still like to see the last few previous tracks for reference so I manually deselect older tracks once in a while. Ideally this process could be automatic.

Thanks!

Good idea. :-) Last n tracks or tracks in past xx days.

Yes, just last N tracks is even better/simpler!

I recommend to give your tracks the right name ;o)

eg.
"2014031013220_mytrack"

It should be identified via creation date, not via file name in my opinion.

Relevant data should be in meta data not in file name.

That still won't auto-filter which tracks are shown on the map.

I've created a feature suggestion page:

Thanks!
