Data imported is wrong was created by enystedt
I imported my class lists complete with dates I have each class, but when I go into the class, the dates are wrong. They are all off by one day. I checked my original lists again but the dates are correct on them. Why would the app change data that I imported?

Hi entysedt,
Excel date translation always requires some Locale information (i.e. month position) and some time zone conversion, and the result may not always be the desired one.
You should change the header's format to Text or Generic text, so that there is no conversion in between and the file will be converted as is.
If you need further assistance, and you don't have any inconvenient , send us that file to support@idoceo.net and we'll give it a look.

Regards

Thanks! I was the one who was also posting about this on Twitter. Now you said there is a way to clear out what I've already done and start over again? I think that's easier than trying just to import the dates again, if there even is a way to import just the column headers.

I'd suggest you to erase all your classes. Tap&hold on each class, then erase
This will be a lot easier than importing just the column headers, which at the moment
requires an additional Dropbox step that will be removed in our upcoming update.

If you'd like to specifically erase some info inside your classes you can either:
- Erase a tab completely with a tap&hold on a tab, then erase
- or erase all columns , tap on the tools Icon on top, then Columns, All , and Delete

I'm not sure if I mentioned it in our tweets, but if you save your data as CSV , and import those files instead your dates will be just fine when you 'Open In' iDoceo.
