The first step to reading the monthly report is to recognize that there are different types of symptom tracking:
- Low to High Tracking Points are are on a scale of 1-4, with '4' as the highest or heaviest symptoms, '1' being no symptoms, and 2 being the least or lightest manifestation of the tracked variable. In the app, you have a few low to high tracking points already designated by 'mild', 'severe' and 'extreme' tags. This was designed to track the peak emotion of the day, not incidents total of that emotion throughout the day.
- Yes/No Tracking Points - These are represented in two ways on the monthly report: a 'Y' for yes, a 'N' for no. Blank entries mean nothing was marked that day in eMoods.
- Numerical Tracking Points - For example, sleep tracking in numerical. These are represented as raw numbers on the report for days that an entry was made.
- Medications - These are tracked per day with either an 'x' for days that a medication was listed as missed, or as the numerical value of the dosage given in the medication settings.
