is it possible to backtest a scan

I have some scans I'm testing. They each call about 5-10 Studies.

Is it possible to "backtest" a scan so I can check them historically rather than waiting to see what happens in the future?

I tried going into the scan and setting the offset in each of the studies to a backtest date. Buts it's extremely time consuming.

In a perfect world I would be able to run the scan on a specific date. But I noticed that when I use OnDemand, the scan tab is disabled.

Is there a good way to achieve what I want?

@Cre8able The ToS platform does not allow backtesting of anything other than strategies. The Strategy script needs to contain all the conditions necessary to create the AddOrder statement.

PS: If any of the 5-10 studies contain repainting indicators, the backtesting results will not be useable.
