Whenever possible, it is recommended to use your Bluetooth device each day to track your assigned Tasks in Allie. However, there may be some situations where you need to add values manually. This guide will go over how to add and edit manual values, which can be done for the current day, as well as any day in the past.
Note: If you are having issues connecting or using a Bluetooth device, this troubleshooting article may be helpful!
Tracking Manual Measurements
Bluetooth data will always be visible on the day the measurement was taken. To go to a previous day, you can tap the day at the top, or swipe left on your screen.
If using the calendar at the top, you can either tap on a specific day, or swipe left on the calendar row to go to a previous week.
Data from those days will be visible in Allie. If you realize you have forgotten to add a measurement that was taken without a connected bluetooth device, tap the "+" sign for that Task
Here we can manually enter a previous reading. In some cases you will need to add additional information about the reading (such as if a glucose reading was taken while Fasting, Before Meal, or After Meal).
Tap "Save" and the measurement will be saved in Allie and visible to your provider. If you realize the value you've entered is incorrect, tap the "edit" pencil icon:
You'll see the pop-up and can make changes to values or conditions. Then tap "Save" to save the new values.
You can also use the "Delete" option here if for some reason the entry is incorrect (such as if it should be entered for another day). This will remove it from the system.
Please be aware of the following when entering/editing manual data:
- "Activity" Tasks cannot be manually entered. That information will come from your phone if you have Step logging enabled
- Tasks such as Exercise or Medication cannot be added retroactively. You will need to manually track them in Allie on the same day
