FitnessSyncer Amazon S3, DropBox, Google Drive, and OneDrive Map Configuration

Configuring Map Sources

FitnessSyncer can create and read your health and fitness information in a FIT, GPX, KML, KMZ, PWX, or TCX file format from Amazon S3, DropBox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or even e-mail. This is the easiest way to import files, export data, or back up your data. Here is how you configure it:

  • Set the Path to the directory you wish for us to read files from or upload to
  • Set the Filename format for us to upload. The extension is automatically provided.
    • {date}: Date
    • {year}: Year as a 4 digit entry
    • {month}: Month
    • {day}: Day
    • {id}: Internal ID of the item
    • {name}: Name of the activity
    • {title}: Description of the activity
  • Indicate the type of file (only available for Activities)

All other settings are just like the Sources or Destinations.

Some services may produce a CSV which is a summary of an individual activity. For such services, you would use a Map configuration option. That said, some of the documentation for the CSV Configuration may be useful. Keep in mind that the extension for such files must be .csv.

For destination tasks, the CSV export here also can append existing files by selecting the Append File option. This helps create CSV files of your daily heart rate data into a monthly file. To configure one of these, ensure that you have the Append File option selected, use {year}-{month} as your filename, and filter out non-relevant sources or non-summary tasks.

To configure Amazon S3, place your Access Key into the username field, your Secret Key into the Password field, and for the path, use bucket/directory/file.

Can I recursively get data from Dropbox?

Yes, you can use /** at the end of your path to recursively read a directory.

Can I recursively get data from Amazon S3?

This is the default behavior with Amazon S3 and you cannot disable it.

I cannot see my files in Dropbox Teams; why?

FitnessSyncer’s Dropbox integration does not work with Dropbox Teams as it is intended for personal usage. If you have questions on this, please contact us.
