Bulk Editing, or Editing Multiple Activities

We don't offer a feature to edit multiple activities at once - although we know it's a popular request. For example, after bulk importing historical data you may wish to bulk apply activity settings such as gear, privacy, activity type, tag, etc. 

For now, you can most efficiently edit activities one-by-one on the website from the My Activities page. You can select Edit, adjust the activity settings, and Save for each activity without having to leave this page. You can also filter activities by activity type, keyword, commute or private tags.

  • nice, but it doesn't see my gear.

  • see the screenshot

  • Hi Mateusz,

    Duh. I understand what is wrong. I will fix it and update you.

    Thanks.

  • Done.

  • it works much better now.

    few things that I noticed:

    1. the end data is not inclusive
    2. during a month I would have 30ish rides, I can only update a month at a time, if I select longer periods it says "something went wrong" and I need to redo

    great tool - big thanks!

  • Mateusz,

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I would like to use this tool to add commute tag to short rides. If there are long commutes, these can be fixed manually.

  • Mārtiņš

    Thanks for your interest.

    If the tool allows you to set "commute" tag to the activities between certain dates, will your problem be solved?

     

    Toru

  • Problem would be partly solved - just for periods where I do not do training rides.

  • Mārtiņš

    I will implement "set tag" and see how it helps you. I will update you when I am done.

     

  • Mārtiņš

    I added "commute" filed to https://objem-app.appspot.com/

    Note that it will set commute for ALL activities between "from" and "to" dates.  If it is too inconvenient to you, could you please let me know how I can identify your commuting activities, such as the distance is less than 10km.

  • Would like to be able to change activity type to the new Virtual ride

  • Mikael

    You are right. That is missing. I will add it and update when it is ready.

    Thanks!

  • Mikael

    I added Virtual Ride to activity types.  Should you see "undefined" in activity type fields, please reload your browser to refresh.

  • Found this tool as I searched for a possibility to bulk edit (=make private) a bunch of activities. Whatever I tried, I always got the error "Something went wrong". Any idea?

  • Hi Boris,

    Thanks for your report and screen shot. I will take a look and see how to fix.

  • Hi Toru. Could manage it by using your tool in chunks of 1-3 month and sport by sport. Took me a lot of time, but it was way faster than with the onboard possibilities of strava itself – a shame that they don't offer a bulk edit. Thank you very much for this little helper tool you created. Thanks.

  • Hi Boris,

    Glad to hear that it worked (with your efforts).  It seems unstable with many activities. I appreciate your report!

  • Hi Toru

    this tool rocks! Thanks for supporting us... :)

    I am trying to bulk update my privacy settings, but update to Private doesn't seems to work anymore... any clue? I am able to bulk change my gear, but not privacy..

    thanks for the help!

  • Hi Coca Cola C.

    Oh, that is not what I intended. I will take a look and update you.

    Thanks you for reporting.

  • Hi Coca Cola C.

    I tried to reproduce the issue, but I cannot figure out the settings to reproduce it.  Could you tell or show me what parameters you actually input, please?  It will be great if you can show me the screenshot as I attached to this post.

    I am aware of that setting a long period causes error and only updates portion of trainings.  (I am too lazy to fix it.) If this is the case, you could narrow the period.  However, I guess you have a different situation because your gear is successfully updated, but not privacy.

  • Hi Toru,

    yes, it seems related to long periods. After narrowing the period, it works! Thanks!!!

    and great tool btw!

  • Hi Toru,

    any chance to implement a bulk delete action? I imported 2 years of bad data into strava and while I correct that, i would like to delete that data on a bulk action.

    thanks for your help!

  • Hi Coca Cola C.

    It is great to hear it worked for you and thank you for your patience.

    Speaking of bulk deletion, I am a little cautious because you cannot get any data back if you make mistake.

    Could you tell me in what condition you want to delete? I might be able to add "DELETE" button, If your bad data set has a simple condition.

    I have a year of bad data, too ;p  The problem is that each of my bad activity is corresponded to a good activity.  For example, my bad running activity on Jan 1st, 2015 is inherited from a good activity on exactly the same day.  If I had specify the range between 1st to 31st in Jan, I would delete all good activities, too.

    If your bad activities are similar to mine, I need to come up with a new way to set condition.

  • Hi Toru! I would love to use this Updater tool! I have just switched to Strava and imported a lot of workouts, so I'm exactly in the situation #3 in your list. But it didn't work for me so far. Sometimes it spins for really long time without getting back, sometimes (more recently) it returns with a phrase "Something went wrong". I'm able to login with Strava, I can see my gear. I'm going to change my shoes on the dates "from"-"to", but can't do that. I understand that it's "beta" and it's a hobby project for you, so no rush here. I'll wait for the updates. Thanks for doing this.

  • Pavel Anni

    Thanks for your report.  I am pretty positive that it is because the tool does not update many activities at once.  If you don't mind, could you please try with shorter date range (from - to)?

    And, I have heard the symptom more than 3 times, it became one of my new year resolution to do something on it.  I cannot promise when it will be completed (I am sure it will takes more than a week), but I will.

  • Used this to update a selection of Ride events, to tag them as Commute. Worked perfectly, thank you!

  • Nice tool! But when I try Virtual Ride, it restricts the 'Gear' options to "" and "blank". I tried refreshing the browser as you suggest below (chrome & safari), but it returns to the default selection. If I choose Ride, all bikes are listed in Gear.  Any ideas?

  • Hi, Weedy Rider My code does not associate your gears to virtual ride activities by mistake. I will take a look, fix it and update you. Thank you for the report!
  • Hi Toru,
    Did you have any luck fixing this? I have tried a few times lately but still get same as described above. Thanks for looking in to it!
