Managing Logs

Version 1.03 of Diabetes 360 gives you the capability of managing multiple logs across multiple devices via iTunes File Sharing. As always, feel free to Contact Us for assistance with this feature. Below we have included instructions for Adding, Deleting and switching between log databases.

This feature is only available on devices running iOS Version 5 (iOS 5).

If you need assistance upgrading your device, please Contact Us and we will be glad to assist.

Toward the bottom of the main settings page, there is a "Manage Logs" option which will bring you to the Manage Logs page.

Add New Log, Change Active Log, Delete a Log

From here you can add a new log, switch to a new one, or delete a log. To add, tap the add button on the upper right, type a name for the new log in the popover that appears, and tap create. The new log will appear in the list. Tap the name to switch to it. The active log name will appear on the home page. Be sure to verify that the log that is active is the one you want to be active before logging or changing settings.

To delete a log, swipe across the row and tap the red delete button that will appear on the right hand side of the row.

Tapping on a log will make it active as indicated by the checkmark. Please note that switching logs switches the entire Diabetes 360 database. This includes the log entries AND the settings (reminders, calculations, IOB Factors, Excercise Factors, Rounding, etc.).

When switching between logs, also be aware of the settings attached to the log database you have switched to.

Backup, Restore, and Log Sharing with iTunes File Sharing

iTunes File Sharing allows you to copy a Log Database to another device, copy it to a backup disk, or restore a backed up log.

To access iTunes File Sharing, plug in a iPod, iPhone, or iPad and launch iTunes. The device will be shown on the left side of the iTunes window. Click on the device ("Joe's iPhone 4" in the example above), then click on the "Apps" option on the menu at the top.

At the bottom you will see "File Sharing" with Diabetes 360 listed in alphabetical order among other apps that support File Sharing. With Diabetes 360 selected, you will see a document named "Diabetes.sqlite". This is the default log database. As you add and delete log databases on your device, you will see them appear and disappear from this list.

To backup a database, simply drag it out of the "Diabetes 360 Documents" box to a suitable backup location on your Mac or PC. You can also use the "Save To..." button.

To restore a database, reverse the process and drag it from a folder on your Mac or PC to the "Diabetes 360 Documents" box. You can also use the "Add..." button. When a new log database is added in iTunes, you will see it listed in the Manage Logs page on your device. Switch to it by tapping it.

To use a database from one device on another device, save the database from the source device and add it to the "Diabetes 360 Documents" on the target device. You can plug both into your Mac or PC at the same time or plug in one at a time, first saving to the computer, then adding to the target device. If the database already exists on the target device, you will have to delete it on the device itself before adding the new one of the same name.

Be very careful with this type of procedure to avoid data loss due to file manipulation mistakes. Keep your files organized and backed up at all times.

As always, feel free to Contact Us for assistance with this feature.
