To better exploit the power of FitnessSyncer, its best to understand some of the concepts used.
FitnessSyncer is divided into two configuration items, Sources and Destination Tasks.
A Source is a feed of health or fitness information and collects one type of data. For example, if you create an Activity Source, only exercise information will be read from that service. Currently, we support the following types of data:
The information from the Sources is available on our Dashboard, Stream, Calendar, Daily Analyzer, Your Best, and Destination Tasks. More information is available in the section sources documentation.
Destination Tasks are tasks which take source data and use it in some way. Today, FitnessSyncer supports the following destination tasks:
To synchronize, we copy the items in the Sources to the Destinations. FitnessSyncer does not delete or update any records directly. If the data is not available from a service, it will result in a 0 and in some rare cases, calculated by FitnessSyncer.
All destination tasks will be ran by default once per day, usually during the night. FitnessSyncer Pro subscribers have the ability to run this more frequently and scheduling the tasks.
