How can I manually add records?
Open the timeline from the app’s main menu. Navigate to the desired date by using the upper date toolbars,
then use the ⊕ button (lower right corner of the screen) to add your records.
How does the Google Calendar synchronisation work?
If activated, the synchronization will write the app’s records to a Google Calendar. You will need to configure the
calendar in the app’s settings. Every change in Swipetimes is reflected in the Google Calendar, but
calendar changes are not transferred back to the app. It’s a one way synchronisation.
Depending on your purchased add-ons you may choose to have automatic synchronisation
(happens every time your tracked records change) or you may have to manually invoke the sync.
In order to see the records in the Google Calendar please take a look first by using Google’s web interface. There you are
able to also see the calendars Swipetimes created.
What happens to my time account during vacation, illness etc.?
Well, you’ll have to mark those days in order to avoid miscalculations of your time account.
As you know, your time account reflects the difference between the target and the tracked time. On vacation you don’t have a target
time, thus you will have to add an exception for the vacation days.
How does the rounding work? Does it round to the nearest X minutes?
No, that’s not the way rounding works. Just the duration is rounded.
Let’s assume you have a record running between 10:03 - 10:06 and your rounding setting
is round up each record / 5 minutes.
The actual duration of the record is 3 minutes, but after rounding it will be 5 minutes.
Start and end time remain untouched.
For a rounding setting round up daily duration / 5 minutes, the actual duration of a day’s records
is summed up, and then the sum is rounded.
How can I get rid of the demo (preset) data?
The preset data is only shown to instantly enable you to play with swipetimes. Once you’ll create your own projects
all demo data will vanish.
Why can’t I find my backups on Google Drive?
The app shows the backup list, but on Google Drive there’s nothing.
This is due to the fact that the Google Drive App folder is hidden. It cannot be made visible by any means, as Google
controls this behavior. Here are some more details: https://developers.google.com/drive/api/v3/appdata
In case you want to be able to access the backups, you can use Dropbox or SD-card based backups.
