FAQ Index > Customizable Trackers

Customizable Trackers

Many Binfy trackers are customizable trackers. This means that in addition to the main tracker event (e.g. Blood Pressure, or Glucose), you can add a set of related symptoms, exercises, meds/vitamins (SME). Sometimes we refer to these as tracker groups.

The benefit is twofold: First, your tracking can be done in one place. Secondly, the tracker's main chart, reports, and calendar also keep the relationship intact.

Remember, though, SME tracking is global: no matter where you track from, that data record is then accessible by all other tracking methods: track individually (A to Z), from the SME Group, or attached to a tracker.

Other Tracker Types

Before outlining customizable tracker setup, a quick note about other tracker types:

  • Non-customizable: No support for Symptom, Meds/Vitamins, or Exercise sections. Examples: daily journal, food log.

  • Symptom Tracker, Exercise Tracker, Meds/Vitamins Tracker: Customizable, but only for its respective type.

Tracker Detail Pages

Every tracker event - main events, symptoms, exercise, and meds - has a detail tracker page. Landing there depends on where you took off from!

If you get to the detail page from the tracker, you can go back to the tracker using the page's breadcrumb.

If you get to the detail page from another tool, such as a report, generally you'll be disconnected from the tracker. This is by design, particularly for SMEs, where you can track independently of any tracker. Tracker Map to the rescue! Appearing on the right sidebar, it shows links to all trackers the item is a part of.

This diagram shows the customizable tracker (blood pressure) at left.

At right are detail pages for a blood pressure record, a symptom record, and exercise record - each for January 21.

From the tracker, we get to the detail page by clicking the Edit Icon to the right of the data record in the list.

At the detail page, you can:

  • View all tracking records for this item on the date.
  • Edit, delete, and add tracking records for this item.
  • View charts and stats exclusively for this item.
