Collection storage and privacy

For your privacy, your collection is stored exclusively on your mobile device. It is never backed up to any server. Therefore, it's your responsibility to protect and back it up frequently.


Collection import/restore

A new or existing collection can be imported in a CSV format. Use the following example, to compose your CSV file that would be ready to be imported to the app:

,2019,Canadian Maple Leaf&comma; roll of 20,gold,coin,1,0.999,Bought this roll on<new-line><new-line>Some of these could be certified with 70 grades&comma; need to go through the roll and pick which ones to send to PCGS,20,34999.99,,,,,,PCGS205,Bank Vault,ca,,,,,,,,,

Please note:

  1. First row, should contain all the fields names as displayed above.
  2. CSV fields are separated by comma, if you want your fields content to contain some commas (as a part of content), should be replaced with HTML entity &comma; instead.
  3. CSV fields cannot have new line breaks. In order to have new lines properly imported without breaking the app, a CSV field (such as a Note) should have a special tag <new-line> for a line break.
  4. The usage of both comma and a new line is demonstrated in a sample CSV format above.
  5. Required fields: title, type, form, weight, purity, quantity, paid.
  6. If error message "ENCODING_ERR" shows up during file import, try to instead copy paste file content into the text area.

Copy and paste your CSV file content to the input box in the Settings tab.

Use third party apps to share files/content between your computer and mobile device (eg. Pushbullet, Alt-C).


Collection back up/export

Current collection can be backed up to CSV format from the Settings tab.
