Purpose of feature: managing backup to the Website database (Web DB) of your App database (App DB)
When you - doing the last two tasks with the Account Manager - have:
- and you have done some tracking and / or done some kind of data update, you are ready to upload your tracks/notes to the Website.
An upload processes the App database (DB) on your device, and comprises:
- thereby committing all changes in the App DB to the Web DB.
The designation row is synonym with tracks and notes.
The processing is independent on Tzone's, or setting of The filters.
Imagine three tracks (titled 'T1', 'T2' and 'T3') have been created, and registering is done.
After having passed Checking of credentials, tapping Upload the first time will then open:
Tapping Tap here if you want to proceed opens:
When confirmed, upload to the Website is done, ending up in a receipt:
Now imagine this transaction sequence:
Tapping Upload a second time now opens:
See the Tracking states example with an *ED* marking.
Tapping Tap here if you want to proceed and confirming again, upload to the Website is repeated and ends up with this receipt:
Finally imagine a transaction sequence like:
Tapping Upload this time opens:
Tapping Tap here if you want to proceed and confirming again, upload ends up with the receipt:
If no more transactions found place hereafter, tapping Upload opens:
Every time one of the four function buttons at the top of the Web mainpage - including this Upload button - your credentials (Username and Password) are checked, as well as permission to access your account.
If anything is wrong, information similar to this is displayed:
Other information could be given, if something very unlikely should have happened to your credentials.
To access the function, it's required that the device is (set) primary - otherwise this pops up:
In principle, there is no limit to the volume of an upload: tracks/notes for a whole year or more can theoretically be uploaded in one big chunk. On the other side, a small upload comprising one or only few tracks/notes in a smaller chunk is an - recommended - option.
