[Feature Request] Export Notification log

Postby Wakashu » Fri Jan 10, 2014 5:44 pm

Here goes my first post.

I have searched as best as I could and found no similar question.

On my iPhone I have the notification log and it was enabled:
Confirmation 1/1/2014, 19:22
"Prowl Push-Message system initialized and ready"

Individual entries can be selected and copied one by one and I would like to know if the "select all" could cover ALL entries in the log so that I can load them into an Excel spreadsheet.
If this function is already available I would appreciate instructions on how to do it, if not, then this would be a useful feature to add.

Thanks.

This is not possible right now. Can I ask what you're trying to accomplish by logging the notifications?

Once loaded into Excel I can sort and find time distributions by grouped notifications.

Initially I only mentioned Excel. I would also like to import individual entries to a Contact Management Access database app.

Further to my comment above, I suppose I could jaibreak my iPhone to get root access and access the log that way.
This would be an extra burden if I need to have the cel serviced by the carrier because I would have to restore the cel to a "non-jailbreak" state.

I just read http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=20393 and while I think there are quite a few pearls of wisdom there that could be part of what I am looking for, I'm afraid I lack the skills to do that.

Did it hard way. Click on the entry bar, copy and paste :-/

Lost many entries since my first post :-/

The log wraps around and rewrites over top :-/

Even a "select all" would satisfy the "export" function request.
