But it’s definitely still adding new days, I took a train ride last night and that got added in, I didn’t confirm the last section and it got added as running (circled to the right) but the bus ride I took a few days prior still shows up as a car (circle to the top left)
Hm, okay, I’ll try and see if I can replicate the problem here. It’s not something I’ve seen happening before, but I’ll do some testing to see if I can trigger it, then track down the cause. Thanks for the heads up!
I’m going to try to have another look into this shortly. There’s got to be some small logic fail in the code somewhere. I haven’t been able to replicate the problem on any of my test devices yet, so that makes it trickier. But sometimes just eyeballing the code a few times helps to spot the mistake.
Sorry to bring this up again but I’m having the same issue
I just wanted to clarify something before resetting from a backup again
If you fix older stuff is that treated differently than new stuff in the simple items update?
This started after I went back through cleaning up basically all my data from 2020-2016 and after I did that new timeline updates aren’t updating when I fix, this could be explained if older simple item updates are processed differently than completely new items
There’s two passes to the SimpleItems updates task: 1) creating new SimpleItems for new data, and 2) updating existing SimpleItems to match changes in existing data.
When you view the monthly/yearly maps while the phone is plugged in to power, Arc will do 1, ie it will spot any missing SimpleItems and create them.
When Arc runs its daily background housekeeping tasks, it will do both 1 and 2. It sounds like iOS isn’t letting Arc finish running the background housekeeping task each day, so it’s fallen behind on updating existing SimpleItems.
Do you have Automatic Daily Exports turned on in Arc’s Backup settings? If so, I recommend temporarily turning that off, to reduce the amount of daily background task work required.
That could ease the load enough for iOS to get the SimpleItems updates finish. You could also try turning off Arc’s iCloud Drive Backups in those settings too. That would mean all the optional background housekeeping tasks are disabled, giving Arc the best chance to get the core ones finished each day.
You’d want to wait a few days at least after making those changes, to see if any progress is made.
Oh and it’s not ideal to turn on and off Arc’s iCloud Drive backups setting often. Each time you turn it off then on again, Arc acts as though it’s starting a new backup from scratch, so it’ll have a lot of work to catch up on, not realising that most of the backup is already there. But it’s worth a try at least, to see if you can trick iOS into letting the SimpleItem updates finish!
I guess I should make the “on demand” pass (when you view monthly/yearly while plugged in to power) also do the updates of existing items. It feels like giving in to defeat a little bit, but iOS’s scheduled background tasks really can’t be relied on.
