  • How To Transfer Shifts from Work Log to Work Log – Shift Tracker

The easiest way to transfer your shifts is to email the backup to yourself using the “Backup Database” option in the General Settings on your Android device.

Then open Work Log – Shift Tracker, go to the Backups and Syncing section in the General Settings, select Import Database, and select the file you downloaded. The imported shifts will be added as a new job/jobs.
