Traditionally, Roon has kept track of “Date Added” for tracks based on the first time that Roon saw a file or TIDAL track. This isn’t ideal when our collections typically go back for decades and Roon hasn’t been released for nearly as long.
There are a few features to improve this situation. You can edit the import dates for your tracks to match the file modification or creation times in the filesystem (multi-select a bunch of tracks in the track browser and use the “Metadata Preference” tab if you want to perform this operation to large amounts of content at once). You can, of course, also edit your import dates manually.[/quote]
But how do I change the import date to = release date for, say, 10K tracks?
If you mean setting the date added to the date that the album was released there is no need to do this as Roon already has the “sorted by date” menu option that gives you a view by release date from the album view menu.
