Apply equipment to past activities?

Hi
I use SportTracks for running only. I bought a pair of shoes just over a year ago, and in the equipment settings it does have "currently in use" checked.
However, it looks as though the "import settings" for this was not set correctly, so none of my activities have these shoes selected automatically.
Is there a way to retro-actively apply this "equipment" to the activities from a given date to present time? I know I can manually edit each activity, but that would be a lot of work.
Thanks

In case you only want to know how many miles you have used these shoes, just fill the box with "extra km used" in the equipment view.
The ActivityreportView will help you to establish an estimate of this value.

In case you want to know which shoes you used for which activity, you have to assign your equipment per activity.


I have not tried.
But I understand every activity has some equipment item assigned.
See what happens when you rename your different equipment items into a name that is only slightly different from the name of your preference.
For example:
shoe; sshoe;
or shoe1; shoe2

Thanks, but this doesn't accomplish what I'm trying to do.

Make a copy of your logbook before any mass edits.

Select all the activities you wish to edit using reports (or select a month at a time using month name selection in Daily Activity).
Do Edit->Edit Summary Information. Tick the Equipment box and choose Add. Hit the down arrow to select the item(s) to add.
Then click OK.

I have done other mass edits, but I have not had the need to do equipment edits, so I don't know if it will do exactly what you want.
Practice/test on a small subset before doing loads of activities.

Yes, this worked.
