This is the initial app screen, listing which CSV files you have already imported:
Here’s what you can do on this screen:
- Add a new file: Click the upper-left + symbol to add a new file.
- Change app settings: Click the upper-right preferences button to change the app settings (see below).
- Refresh all CSV files: For those CSV files which have been downloaded from the internet, simply pull the list down to fetch the latest version of all files. A symbol in front of the file name will indicate the result, with a checkmark for success, minus sign for failure.
- Refresh/Change settings for a single CSV file: Long-click on the file and you will enter a view where you can see some data about the file, refresh it, and override certain app settings for this specific file.
- See all items for a file: Click the file to enter this view.
The app settings work as follows:
- Alternate parsing / Keep quotes: See CSV format page; essentially these are for handling different types of CSV files.
- Default encoding: Which text encoding is used in the CSV files.
- Separator: Which character is used for delimiting the fields in a row. Default means the app will try to auto-detect this, but in case this fails you can here select which one your files use.
- Synchronise files: If this is on, downloading a file with a list of URLs will replace all existing files with those in the list (except locally imported files). So this is useful if you have a variable number of files you want to work with, and you have listed the current set in a downloadable file. NOTE: If you also switch on the setting below, refreshing will be done by downloading this file with URLs again, instead of just refreshing every single file individually.
- Automated refresh / Refresh time: Here you can select to automatically get a notification to refresh all CSV files at a given time each day. If the app is not in the foreground when this time passes, the app will notify you next time it is.
