ResLog FAQ

How do I take advantage of Category1?

Most field names can be assigned by you. You can tailor the data yiy record to target your medical profession. For example, if you are a Dermatologist, one data field could be “Type of Biopsy”, another “Dermatopathology”. There are five general data fields, six group modules with two data fields and one free-form text view for each module. In addition to defining the meaning of the data in all of these, you can choose to show the field in the user interface or not. Data assigned to fields is not contingent on visibility. You can enter data, hide the fields and later show the fields and data again.

What about the Data Pickers?

You can create up to three lists that appear as data selection pickers and attach them to three data fields. You can assign any of the three pickers to any of the seventeen text fields. You would make these lists for data that you wish to include which might be fixed across many user records. For example, if you practice at twelve clinics, you could make a clinic list - making data entry easier and faster.

Can I search for items?

Absolutely. You can enter any string of characters in the searchbar and the app will search for that string in all fields that hold text. The results are displayed in a table view with a filter icon to keep you aware that you have a filter in place. You can view, edit, or delete items from the filtered list just as with the full list.

Can I use my device camera?

Yes. You can attach one photo for each record. The photos are optimized for the app and for storage to minimize the amount of memory consumption. Your organization or medical facility may have limitations on patient photos - it is up to you to understand those rules.

Can I backup the data?

Yes. A backup procedure is included which moves a copy of your database to your iCloud account. You can create as many backup database instances as you want (limited, of course, by your iCloud disk space availability). In addition, you can export all of the data (except the photos) to the industry standard comma separated value (CSV) file format which can be read by most spreadsheets.
