iCloud synced logbook

Starting with the versions 5.0, a logbook can be synchronised on all of your devices (iPad, iPhone and Mac). At least you have to use iOS version 13 and macOS version 10.15 (Catalina). Logbook data are organised in a different way when you want to synchronise your logbooks. You have to note the following rules:

Keeping your devices synchronised is not an easy task. Start with the following:

  1. Backup your existing logbook data:
    • Mac: Use the Finder, the path to your used logbook can be find in the title of the logging window
    • iPad: Log Settings—>Upload logbook
    • iPhone: Settings—>Log Settings—>Upload Logbook
  2. Make sure your backup was successful
  3. Backup your data frequently and always before you import data

If you want to use the sync functions, you have to select the fictitious logbook iCloud synced log:

At start the logbook is empty and is ready to use. You can fill it using the ADIF import procedure, or better you export data from an existing logbook (iOS only). First select the logbook you want to export in the same way you want to use it, then start the export routine:

The following settings can be taken over:

On the Mac, you can export an iCloud based logboog using Menu–>Logbook–>iCloud synced logbook–>Export as logbook file

What does not work?

On iOs the Club Log real time syncing is not available. That means, when you change QSO data or a QSL status, these information will not be synced to Club Log automatically. If you want a real time sync with Club Log, use the Mac for these changes.
