Ver 2 is Magnificent

I have installed and partially configured ver 2.0. It is a magnificent work! Much more powerful than I ever imagined. As with any "new" software there is going to be a substantial learning curve. After reading the User Manual a few times I am still cloudy on my Award Management. I currently hold a DXCC "Mixed Mode", a "CW" and a "Phone" and have enough credits (according to LOTW) for a Digital. Did ver 2 download my LOTW awards or do I need to do that? You and your team did a wonderful job putting this together Daniele!

Rory,

I want to express my thanks to your for your comments. They are most appreciated.

Yes, trying to absorb all the details and multiple options takes time and patience. Danielle has many items on the "to do" list that will be forthcoming over time to make it even better and bring forward some elements from V1 that will further enhance V2.

I'll let some of the other Alpha Team members answer your awards question. I've adjust a couple of mine manually, but there are items in the works as time moves forward.

Thanks again.

Rory,

In V2 of Log4OM, when you download your LotW confirmations, it actually does 2 downloads. The first download is for your QSL's (confirmations) the second is your Credit Granted status. If you have paper QSL cards confirmed, and you have your DXCC paper QSL account linked to your LotW account, then that second download will download everything confirmed and granted via ARRL and LotW. Then your Log4OM status of worked, confirmed and Granted should match your DXCC records online.

I hope that answers your question.
