I hope "Replaced" doesn't mean that you left a throwdown and claimed it as a find.

The wire on the container was broken and it was on the ground. We put the old log in a new container and hung it on the only tree.

Here are some previous logs for this cache.

If we could only see our comments after uploading our drafts we could have let the CO we performed maintenance.

Found with Riverbugs. Not much treasure here anymore as original cache has been replaced by a camo pill bottle. Replacement cache is holding up well after 3 years of service. TFTC.

Thanks for sharing the information TeamBikeFast. We tested with the files you shared. We were able to see the comments on the caches on the new logging page (the older page does not display a preview of the log) - have you tried this with a new field note with text? Noticed that the comment  in your text file “Tidal Bore. Burnt Cove Head” is on the event cache GC72QAE and not the Earthcache GC3XEHV (if that was intentional or not, I’m unsure). 

We’re not able to reproduce an issue with uploads:

  1. Uploaded the text file with only the dates from July on the old field notes page - as if we were uploading ‘last week’.
  2. To test, only 1 cache was logged. Logged the cache from July 19th from the old field notes page in the new logging page. 
  3. Uploaded the entire file - all July and August dates (including the July 19th text file) - as if we were uploading ‘this week’:
    1. Uploaded to the new drafts page. The logged cache (July 19th) was not uploaded and does not appear on the new drafts page or the old field notes page. 
    2. Uploaded to the old field notes page with the “ignore logs before 8/4/2017” checked. The logged cache (July 19th) was not uploaded and does not appear on the new drafts page or the old field notes page. 
    3. Uploaded to the old field notes page WITHOUT the “ignore logs before 8/4/2017” checked. The logged cache (July 19th) DOES appear, because the checkbox is essentially giving permission to upload everything, despite any past uploads. 

Perhaps you are using the old field notes page without checking the “ignore logs”? If you are using the new drafts page, any previously logged caches will not be uploaded. Without more information and more detailed steps I’m afraid I can’t provide you with more assistance.

I will leave the existing drafts in the Garmin 650 when we go out this week. I will take before and after screen shots of the upload process and let you know how it goes.

The "Ignore logs before" was not showing up on the old field notes page until after I uploaded (all) the field notes, which is why I switched to the new drafts page.

Thank you for the detailed analysis of the information provided.

I uploaded todays drafts and everything worked as it should. The first time since the new drafts page. The testing you did must have finally synced my drafts to the upload page.

Only todays drafts were uploaded.

The comments field was also uploaded with the drafts.

Thanks.

The problem we were having may have been caused by using the "Delete All" on the old page. How is the best way to delete the logged geocaches form the drafts page if you have 100 or more to log. Sometimes on a trip we do not have internet until we return home. Do we have to check 100 individual boxes to delete the drafts?

Deleting the visits.txt file every time before uploading to the GPS adds a step to what is supposed to be a process improvement.

Confused

I am having an issue with uploading drafts on two separate devices. If I create a log and save it as a draft from the app, it works. If I then upload my geocaching visits for the day, it overwrites my draft log that I submitted through the app. Is this a known bug/limitation? Thanks
