Hi there,

I just had a look at the backup options of iDoceo. As I don't want to use any cloud services for legal reasons and I don't have a WebDAV server at hand, I thought I'd store the backups locally on the iPad so that I can copy them from there using iTunes.

Due to some strange restrictions of iOS however, I can't create a dedicated folder on the device for storing those backups. Oddly enough, I can use any folder created by some other app, but of course it's rather confusing to have iDoceo-backups stored in, say, a folder named "Word".

Is there a way to let iDoceo create its own folder on the iPad?

Hello pck1980,
From the 'Files' app in your ipad > On My iPad > long tap on the files list > New folder to create a new one. You can store your backups there.
Please take a moment to add or update your rating for iDoceo 5 teacher gradebook so that we can continue working on it. Thanks!

Thanks you for your answer. Unfortunately, I don't have the option to create a new folder when I'm in the "root directory" of my iPad.
It works fine inside one of those folders that are already there - but these belong to other apps.

It may be a 'feature' of iOS13. It should be available in a couple of hours.
It looks like this

Would be great if iOS 13 would add this feature. I'll stay tuned... ;-)

The screenshot is taken from iOS13.1. Probably works on iOS13 as well.

I'll have to wait til next thursday to find out if iOS 13 solves that problem ;-)

Completely unrelated problem: It seems I can't create a new topic in the gradebook forum. I get an error that I have to register despite I'm registered and logged in?!
