Converting from other eLogbooks

If you want to get started with LogTen, or are already using it but some of your data is in a different eLogbook, we will more than likely be able to get this data migrated to LogTen, saving you countless hours transferring your flights. This means that you will be able to make the most out of all the LogTen features (Smart Groups, Currencies, Limit Groups, hundreds of reports, MyWorldView, inSight feature, Coradine signatures, Audit tools, to name only a few), while keeping the information that has been previously logged elsewhere.

Below, you will find a list of other logbook providers. If you click/tap on the appropriate one, you will find information on how to get your information across (don't worry, we can help!).

If your provider is not listed below, or your data is in a different format (such as spreadsheet or CSV), please let us know by starting a new support discussion here, and we will be more than happy to help you as well!

RB Logbook

You should be able to export your flight, aircraft and crew data from RB Logbook in a CSV (Comma Separated Values file) which can be imported into LogTen.

If you are using a Mac, you can import this data yourself using our Importing spreadsheet files article. If you are using iOS, or want us to do it for you, we can definitely do that!

To export the data from RB Logbook, you will have to export three files: one for Flights, one for Aircraft and another one for People. To do this, on the RB Logbook app, tap on the "More" tab at the bottom right, and tap on "Import & Export Data". In the new screen, you should see an "Export to CSV" option.

  • If you only have Aircraft Type and Aircraft ID information associated with your Aircraft (ie: there are no notes, serial numbers, other information, etc), there is no need to export the "Aircraft" file, as the registrations and Aircraft Type will be exported in the "Flights". Any additional aircraft information will not be included, so the "Aircraft" file will have to be exported as well.
  • Similarly, if you only have "Name" and "Surname" information for your Crews, there is no need to export the People file as this information is also exported in the "Flights" file. If you have any additional information such as Crew IDs, email addresses or telephone numbers, it will be neccesary to export the "People" file to ensure that all the information gets transferred to LogTen.

Choose a date range (or toggle "All Flights") and select, under "report type" which file you want to export, and tap on "Generate Export".

rb_import

 

This will generate a file that you can email to yourself, save on your iPhone/iPad, or share with us to import it for you!

If you want us to perform the import, or if you have any other questions, please get in touch with us by creating a new support ticket here, we'll be more than happy to get the file converted and imported into LogTen!

If you are importing your data by yourself

Check out this Knowledge Base article: Importing your Data to LogTen

Let us migrate your mccPILOTLOG logbook to LogTen for you!

Please send us your exported logbook (.csv file) by starting a new support discussion here. Our fantastic support staff will be more than happy to get the file converted and imported into LogTen for you.

If you have flight entries or other data in the new LogTen that you would like to merge with the mccPILOTLOG file, please send us your current logbook file first. Instead of importing your data to a new file, we will add it to your existing logbook, and send back the complete data set.

  • On the iPhone or iPad, go to the More tab, select Help, and tap Contact Support.
  • On the Mac, go to the Help menu, and select Contact Support.

Enter your email address (it may automatically populate from your account), and select the send logbook for testing option. Please also include a short note about the data import in the message box, so our staff will know what the request is referring to. Hit Send and it will send a message to our support center with a copy of your logbook file attached.

After sending the file, please refrain from making further changes or additions, since the complete logbook we send back will need to replace the logbook file in the app. Finally, let me know you have sent your logbook in a reply here so that I'll receive the message directly. I'll retrieve your file, import your data, and send back your complete logbook soon.
