Updating the App

Currently the process of migrating your projects' data to a new version of the app needs to be done manually. In addition, you would have to invite members to your shared projects again.
To update the app to the new version while keeping your projects' data, you would need to do the following:
  1. 1.
    Before you install a new version of the app, go to the Project View and click and export the project in JSON format. Do this for every project's data you wanting to keep.
  2. 2.
    Download and Install the latest version of the app release from Acorn's GitHub repository.
  3. 3.
    Run the newly installed app.
  4. 4.
    Depending on the release, and whether it has had 'breaking changes', you may be required to re-create a new profile.
  5. 5.
    Import the data for each project by clicking on Import a Project button on the Dashboard page.
  6. 6.
    For the shared projects, Invite Members again.
Only one person per shared project should take responsibility for migrating that project to the new version. Other project members should be notified, and invited to the migrated project. Note the coordination this requires.
We have to the intention to make updating the app more automatic and seamless in the future. Stay tuned for the updates.
