Android has forced app to use Scoped Storage for all app related data. If you are using Input app on Android please read carefully for the upcoming update (1.1) of the app in the Google Play Store.
In summary, apps need to use a specific part of folders on Android devices to store app related data.
Currently, Input stores your QGIS project and some other settings (e.g. grid shift projection) on
/Internal storage/INPUT. With the new Android requirements, the app related data should be stored on
For the 1.1 release of Input on Android, there will be an extra process. This process will be a on-off action. When you launch the app after the upgrade, it will copy the data from
/Internal storage/INPUT to
/Internal storage/Android/data/uk.co.lutraconsulting. Depending on the size of your projects, this can take a couple of minutes. During the process you will see a screen similar to this one:
The upgrade and copy process should work smoothly. But we suggest to take the following actions to ensure you will not lose any data during the process:
Sync all you changes: before upgrading the app, open Input and sync all your local changes to Mergin.
Storage space: if you work with several projects and large volume of data, make sure you have enough storage. The process will make a copy of your existing
/Internal storage/INPUT without deleting it. So, you need at least the size of
/Internal storage/INPUT storage available.
In case you have encountered any issues, you can take the following steps to fix the problem manually:
/Internal storage/INPUTon your Android phone/tablet
Missing data: the migration process does not delete
/Internal storage/INPUT folder. It will rename it
/Internal storage/INPUT_migrated. Similar to step above, you can copy the data to the PC and move them to
/Internal storage/Android/data/uk.co.lutraconsulting. Alternatively, you can use a file browser app on your device to copy files around.
/Internal storage/INPUTand marks the folder as
/Internal storage/INPUT_migrated. Therefore, when the next user starts up the app, no data will be present. To fix the issue, you need to manually move the data from
/Internal storage/Android/data/uk.co.lutraconsulting(as described above) for the other users on the device.
