I want to set usage for my plan/week/month without changing the day history [Pro version 1.5.0+]

Written by Richard. Posted in FAQs

Prior to version 1.5.0, manually setting the plan/week/month usage would not update the other period totals in order to stay consistent. Since 1.5.0 if you set usage (in the app on the Plan/Week/Month tab, in Menu > set usage) it will evenly (version 1.5.0) or proportionally (pro-rata, version 1.5.1+) distribute this usage amount over the days of the plan/week/month. The periods including these days will be recalculated accordingly.

For example, let’s say your plan started ten days ago, your plan usage is at 20 MB and you want to update your usage to 100 MB (+80 MB). You would set the plan usage to 100 MB. This would also distribute this new value over the ten days so the day history will be changed. If you want to update your usage amount to 100 MB but you want to preserve as much of the day history as possible, instead of setting the plan usage, add 80 MB to today‘s usage (Day > Menu > Set Usage). This way the previous days will not be affected.
