Community is a feature of RIDE COMMAND that creates a place to find and share 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. 

With Community, you can interact with other users on the Slingshot App and website. 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. 

The community page can be accessed by selecting COMMUNITY at the bottom of the screen. The first screen is the Activity feed, where all recent posts are shown and ordered by newest 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. From this page, you can create a post or plan a public or private event.
