Dropbox is a popular and loved file sync service, which is also used by many apps for data backup and export. From now on you can also use it from within Eternity to backup and restore data, and to export reports and logs in CSV format. You don’t need to be afraid that Eternity will make a mess in your Dropbox account. It will upload files only to a dedicated “/Apps/Eternity/” folder.
You can backup your data by going to Backups and selecting Dropbox. If you do that for the first time, Dropbox app or Safari will be opened and you’ll need to grant Eternity access to the dedicated folder on your Dropbox account. If Eternity is successfully linked you can backup and restore your data without logging in. If you use multiple devices, you can restore your data from any device’s backup. All backups are kept in the “/Apps/Eternity/backups/” folder.
Reports and logs can now be exported as CSV files not only by email, but also into Dropbox. The same account as for the backups is used but the files are uploaded into “/Apps/Eternity/export/” folder. If you export files for the same period (with the same file name), they are not overwritten, but saved with a auto-incremented numerical postfix.
If you don’t want Eternity files to be synced to the Dropbox folder on your Mac or PC, you can disable them in the “Dropbox->Preferences->Advanced->Selective Sync”.
If you want to export your logs into Google Calendar, you can select it as Format in the Logs section of the Export view. Read more about how to import CSV files into Google Calendar.
Now you can much easier start timers for parent activities (the ones with the > at the end of the row). Previously you needed to go end set the Hierarchical switch to OFF in the activity edit window. Now you can just tap-and-hold on such activity and the timer view will be displayed for it.
Reports hierarchy navigation also got easier. Previously you needed to carefully tap on the (>) button at the end of the row to see a sub-report. That’s because the tap gesture got re-assigned to the “Display related logs” action, when this functionality was introduced. So every now and then I got a complain that reports are hard to traverse because of that. So I backed off from the (>) buttons and now you can tap to see a sub-report and tap-and-hold to see related logs. I hope it’ll save you some frustration ;)
