Longer historical imports

Generally Exist works better using it in real-time — there’s not a lot of value in importing old data as we do not generate averages and correlations for the past, but each week as your data updates. Nonetheless, some people would like longer initial imports of data from connected services.

    A single view of historical data from multiple sources that can be easily exported would be the single biggest benefit.

    Second up would be historical analysis - Is there correlation between the 20kgs I put on due to moving to the US/new job/new food/stress correlated? (that is actually what happened!) that would be really interesting imho.

    Yea, have many years of data that would be great to analyse, even if it requires manual upload

    Out of interest, what data? And how have you obtained it?

    I get that Exist doesn’t analyze it and it stays current, but in the interest of using Exist as my “life dashboard,” it would be nice to roll back and see how much progress I may or may not have made with different data points.

    thats the main reason. Why am i tracking my health data? Because i want to see the evolution or progress. So syncing historical data is a must have feature guys, i cant understand why nobody is interested in this :(

    For example, you can export your whole apple health data in one .zip file. Would be nice to import this data in exist.io!

    This would be a great feature. I also have years of data I want to analyse. Really hope this could me implemented. Actually Exist will be useless for me when this won’t have more data than 30 days.

    I can only suggest using Google Sheets and using a script (which I can share) to import money_spent, steps, floors (climbed), distance travelled, etc.

    Forgot to mention, that Exist, as far as I am aware, only finds correlations from the last 30-150 days, anyway.... which is a bit disappointing when I’ve imported data from 2017.

    I’ve been seriously contemplating how I am using the data I get from my FITBIT. I have been using it for almost 18 months now, and have a pretty good idea of how many steps I take and the number of workouts, etc… The FITBIT website doesn’t do anything with historic data, so my search for an app that would analyze that data is what led me to Exist. Like most of the comments above, I would like to have the historical data available.
