How to get started with the logbook app?

Most likely, you're new to Logbook and are looking for an overview of what's going on here, right? Well, we have a show (or video) for you!




If you'd rather read some steps, here's a few below:

First Steps


1. Add a log, using your camera to snap a pic and adding any data you want in your Logbook.

Just tap the + on your main logbook screen to get started. If you use an iPhone, it's at the top beside the magnifying glass. If you're on Android, it's a blue dot at the bottom right of your screen.
You can add your location if you'd like: Just tap Location and it will bring up a map. It may prepopulate your location automatically, or you can type it in if you wish.

Next, tap on the Blood Glucose field, and tap in your glucose number. 


Take insulin? Tap on the appropriate field (Ins (food) = insulin you've taken for food, Ins (corr) = insulin you've taken for correction, or a high glucose number.


Then, tap on an icon picture to describe this entry. These are called "tags". These can help you when searching for specific types of entries and helps to better analyze your data later.


Do you need to log additional details? There are two notes sections: One to fill in for the food description (like "cheeseburger" or "green salad with ranch dressing"), and another basic notes field for logging any other additional notes you may need.


Don't want or need to log all of this stuff? No worries!! Just log what you need to and tap Save!


That's it! Your record has been created and you're on your way to being a master monster tamer!


2. Use the search feature to find that meal or exercise log that you've entered before:

You can also search by tags that you've used when logging! It's great for seeing how things are going before meal, after meal, in times of stress, to see how different exercises affect your glucose levels -- all sorts of things!



3. Play a challenge, to help yourself keep on track and JDRF to find us a cure. You can find the challenges in the side menu.

Search and Analysis

By making all those logs useful, through a simple and useful search tool in the app,Analysis both in the app and on the website and connecting your progress to the whole thing makes sense. This helps me make better decisions both when it comes to day to day stuff, as well as in my therapy decisions.

Tip: Place your finger on the monster and move him over to swipe through each Analysis page: Today, Weekly, Bi-Weekly, Monthly, and Quarterly.


Reports and Reporting

Oh and about once a week, you get an email with a brief report on how you've been doing – compared to me, Marlis, Ilka, Scott or others from the mySugr team! Kinda neat, right!?
