Trying to edit columns adding IOTA in recent QSOs, but no IOTA column available.

Award references are in the "Contact References" column.

Thanks Markus,

I'm used to having separate IOTA columns with number and name of the island. This Contact References column doesn't work for me.
I don't the reason why it changed, but it's not for the better. OMHO!

Bert, fully agree with you. Used to generate SOTA upload files in V1.4. No longer possible in V2.2 where reference fields contain more than one data element.

1. You create the SOTA upload file from the awards section

2. Are you aware that SOTA now accept ADIF files for upload?

I like the new V2 and appreciate all the work behind the log and letting us enjoy it for free.

However, I don't understand why there can't be columns for IOTA number and description in the grid configuration, when there are columns for anything else under the sun! ;-)) Thanks!

The problem ..... If anybody like a seperate column for his preferred award how much of those
we should implement ? How big will be the program code, how slow will V2 be in the future with
all this colums ? To have all this seperated we have a great awards engine where you can do all
the needed searches, exports and much more. In my eyes (personal meaning) it doesn´t make
sense to have all this columns in the F7 too.

Hi Juergen,

Thanks for your comments, but I beg to differ. IOTA is almost as big as DXCC and I'm sure you want your DXCC prefix column in your log sheet. BTW, the IOTA column was available in ver.1 so why not in ver.2 ?? It can't be that difficult as there are numerous columns in the log sheet for info that I never heard of!!
