My 1st Signs User Guide

6. Managing Profiles

Contents
Back

Overview

If you use the app with more than one child, or have particular sets of enabled categories and signs you wish to switch between using, you can make use of its Profiles facility. To see the profiles you currently have, tap the Options button at the top right when viewing the Sign Categories, and select Profiles.

Each profile independently manages:

To change the name of a profile, tap its button to the right. You can then also add a paragraph of notes about the profile, if you wish. Initially, you will have just one profile, named Profile 1.

To add a new profile, tap the + button at the top. To rearrange the order of the profiles in the list, or to delete any, tap the Edit button at the top right.

One profile is selected at any time: this is indicated by the tick (check) to the left of its name. To select a different profile, tap its name. All the activities in the app use whichever profile is currently selected, and you must return to the list of profiles whenever you wish to select a different one.

Sharing Profiles

You can export a profile from one iPad and import it on another, as a way of copying the configuration and data associated with the profile. Both devices must have My 1st Signs installed. There are two ways to do this:

Backing Up Your Data

If you use iTunes on a Mac or PC to back up your iPad, the backup will include the configuration and data in My 1st Signs, including any resources you have added. If you later use iTunes to restore this backup to the same iPad or to a different one, this will restore all the content from My 1st Signs.

If you just use iCloud to back up your iPad, or you don't back it up at all, you will not have a back up of the data from My 1st Signs, and will lose your configuration and personalized data if you lose the device.

To protect your data, you can use one of the sharing options above to take a safe copy. If you use the email option to export a profile, you can save the mail attachment on a Mac or PC, in case you need to email it back to the iPad later.
