Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

 

Runningahead.com is helping all coolrunning fans transfer our information into their system - i took a look thorugh it and their log looks 100% better than what active is offering (this site is HORRIBLE!!!)

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you to all those who figured out the backdoor way of downloading your coolrunning log into excel!

 

 

http://www.coolrunning.com/cgi-bin/log/display.cgi?u=USERNAME;p=PASSWORD

 

 

 

Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your information.

 

 

I had to use Mozilla instead of internet exporer to do this but it worked.  Then go to tools and download the information into an excel file.  

 

 

 

 

 

I am sad to see coolrunning go but releived to have gotten my data before most of it was lost and glad to not be wasting anymore time trying to navigate this horrible and very limited site.  

 

 

Peace out Active!

    Everybody, compare feature-for-feature runningahead vs. active.

     

     

    For me the most important feature is the ability to EXPORT my log at any point and avoid site lock-in. 

     

     

    You too active folks.  Wouldn't hurt you to be familiar with the features of the competition.

    Re: Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

    I was able to get into my log, but after that, I don't know what to do with it to save it.  I haven't the foggiest idea how to save it or export it (I have many skills, but the patience to figure out computer stuff is not one of them), and my tech support has been struck down with a stomach bug.  Can anyone tell me what to do?

    If you can get to the Log then click on the tools icon. Once there on the right is this menu

     

     

    Download Your Running Log To download your running log into Excel or another spreadsheet or database, follow these steps.

     

    1) , and save the resulting page to your hard drive, by choosing Save As from your browser's File menu, and take careful note of where you save the file.

     

     

    Click the click here icon and it will open a save as box. It will be downloading a .cgi file. Just remember where you save it so you can get to it to email it.

    Re: Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

    Pogo, I saved my data as a CGI file but was then unable to open it with Excel, even though I have that application on my computer. If that happens to you, open your CGI file as a Microsoft Word document, then go to Save As and save it as a Text File. Then, go to your Excel tool, open it up, put your cursor on the very first box. Then go to the Data tab above and select "Import External Data". There are a few steps it asks you to go through and then it will open up in a nice, pretty file. Lastly, save your new Excel file as is.

     

    I am a computer dummy and need a lot of details so that is why I am explaining it in such small baby steps. I hope it helps if you need it.

    Ah, thank you all so much.  I don't seem to have Excel (or at least I can't find it) but I think my husband's computer does.  I just want my 7(?) year's worth of info, in any form!!

    www.runningahead.com just added a feature that let's you import your own log!  Cool beans!  I'm so glad I made the switch.

    Re: Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

    The deal with transferring the running log from coolrunning.com to active is a terrible, terrible disappointment. The running log at coolrunning.com was cool, easy to use and well equipped. What active offers is awful. My impression is that active is here just to sell stuff. Thanks for the tip to checl runningahead. Vlad

    Re: Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

     

    I e-mailed my log the other day.  I just received an e-mail from eric @ runningahead.com.  He used the new automated process to import mine.  It looks great!  The coolrunning log was great, but this is at least as good.   In fact, it has some nice features that coolrunning did not have.

     

     

     

     

     

    He said he had to automate it because he has "literally hundreds of logs waiting to be done."

     

     

     

     

     

    I would have stayed here if they would have listened and brought back the coolrunning log.  Too late now.....

     

     

     

     

     

    Good bye, coolrunning/active.

    Re: Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

    Just imported my .cgi file from CR to RunningAhead. Took about 40 secs to import 2 years worth of data and it looks great.!!

    Re: Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

     

    I tried out running2win.com and runningahead.com. I really like the log at runningahead. I think even more than I liked the CoolRunning original log. I will check back here on occasion just to see what they do with the log at Active, but I doubt they could persuade me back. I will try to give it an honest shot when they finally get their act together.

    Re: Transfer your running log to Runningahead.com

    I imported mine last night. 5 years of data in a flash. Oh and the shoes milage is all there too. This begs the question. How can the old coolrunnig, runningahead and the others get it right and the allmighty Active can't. OH and by the way Active hands off runningahead do not aquire them too!!!!!!
