That is it for this tutorial post. Please check the other posts to learn how to set session defaults and import data from other poker tracking apps.
How to Set Session Defaults
The Track my Poker app will use the Buy-in, Game Type, Game, Limit Type, Location and Session name from your previous session by default. If you want the app to use predetermined settings you can edit them in the session defaults area.
Step 1. Click Account at the bottom right, then click Session Defaults. Then click Cash game defaults or Tournament defaults
Step 2. Edit your defaults. From here you can set the buy-in, location, game type and many more. When your finished click the back arrow at the top left of the screen and your done!
How to Import Data
Track my Poker supports the import of CSV (excel) files from Poker Income, Poker Journal and Run Good. We also can import custom data (see the custom import tutorial). This tutorial will walk through the steps for an Apple user importing data from Run Good (same steps for Poker Income and Poker Journal).
Step 1. You need to export data from your previous poker app or have data readily available in an excel file. I recommend using iCloud, Dropbox or a similar file sharing service in order to have the excel file easily accessible from your phone or tablet.
Step 2. Click the data tab at the bottom of the app. Then select the file type you want to import (Poker Income, Poker journal or Run Good). From here click the import data button in Step 2 in the app.
Step 3. The app will open a file search from your device. I saved my Run Good sessions export into iCloud and the file appears at the bottom left. Click the file and if it is the proper format, it should import without a hitch!
Step 4. If the import is successful you will get the notification below. If you have any issues uploading send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help!
Step 5. After the import you should be able to see all your sessions in the closed sessions tab.
