Watch this video to get a walkthrough for your first entry and this one for entries after that.
How do I use the camera report?
When editing an entry, tap the Camera Report field. The camera report editor will appear. Tap "New Report" to add a report for this entry. Tap the Roll field that appears to edit the roll number. Tap the plus button to the right of the takes to add more. Tap New Report if an entry spans multiple rolls.
The pencil and circle switch allows you to toggle between editing and circling. When circling, you can tap the takes to circle them. Tap the signature button to the right of the roll number to "sign" this entry's report.
Tap a take to edit the take number. When editing the take number, you can tap the Clips button in the keypad that appears to change the number of clips that the take represents. Tap 0 if the camera did not roll on this take.
To enter custom take names like motor test or FC, tap the keyboard button to toggle between the keypad and the system keyboard.
How do I share my log?
There are two ways to share your log:
Invite another ZoeLog user to your production. Watch this video for a walkthrough on how to add a user to your project. Then the user you are inviting should follow the steps in this video.
Export the log as plain text or a spreadsheet for email or other means of distribution. To learn how to export your log, watch this video.
How do I edit the settings for my production, or camera after I've already created it?
To make changes to a production or camera, you must be an admin for that production. If you created the log, you should already be an admin. See the How do I share my log section for more help.

Can I put photos in my entries?
In the interest of preserving the quality of the user experience, ZoeLog does not support photos.
Is there an iPad native version?
The current version of ZoeLog supports iPads natively. Download the latest version from the app store.
How do subscriptions work? Does every user need a subscription?
Every individual user needs to have an active subscription to contribute to or receive updates from a log.
There are no production, licensing, or group rates. Consider discussing with your producer adding a small kit rental for each user to offset the cost.
The cost of a subscription is USD 4.99 / month or USD 49.99 / year.
ZoeLog is a pay-as-you-go service. If you still have time left in your subscription, any additional time you buy gets added to the expiration date. For example, if you have a month left in your subscription and buy another month, you will have two months before your subscription expires. If you have a 3-month-long job, you can buy three months ahead of time to avoid buying more time in the middle of a production.
One week before your expiration date, you will receive a warning in the app to renew your subscription. You need to be connected to the internet to renew your subscription, so plan accordingly.
If your subscription expires, you will still have access to the logs in their most recent state. You cannot receive any further updates to your logs, create new logs, or make changes to existing ones. You can still search and view the content of your logs. If you delete the ZoeLog app from your phone, your offline data will be lost. However, you will get your data back when you reinstall ZoeLog and renew your subscription.
How do I unsubscribe?
There is no need to unsubscribe. ZoeLog is a pay-as-you-go service. That means you buy the time you need when you need it. You will not be charged for more time when your subscription expires. When you're ready to use ZoeLog again, you can purchase more time. See above for more information about Subscriptions.
Can somebody else pay for my subscription?
Not yet. The ability to purchase subscriptions for multiple users at once is in the works.
Will there be an Android version?
Update: I am currently working on an Android version. There is no release date. Thanks for your patience.
How do you say "ZoeLog"?
"ZO-ee laag" is the correct pronunciation. The first word is Zoe, which is my name. Some people spell my name like this: Zoë. "Log" is like your camera log, or a part of a tree that has been cut off, or the record of a voyage across the sea. The name was a working title when I first started the app. It stuck.
