Did my entry upload properly?
When you submit your entry, you will see a spinning loop graphic, indicating that your upload is in progress. Once the upload has completed, the loop graphic will be replaced by a box with a number. This number represents the entry number (i.e. 1 means your first entry, 2 means your second entry, etc.).
Additionally, if the spinning loop graphic seems to go on longer than expected, maybe it has been spinning for a few minutes now (check out the image above), here are a couple of things you can do to double check if your entry has uploaded correctly:
Check your notification bar
You'll see the dscout icon in your phone's notifications bar if you have an active upload in progress. Swipe down on your mobile device to access your notification bar. If you see an upload in progress, this means that your entry is still indeed uploading and hasn’t finished yet.
Check your Uploads tab
You can check the status of the upload by accessing your Uploads tab (learn how to access your current or failed uploads here). If there is an upload in progress, that means your entry is indeed still uploading. Wait for the progress bar to hit 100% and double check if your entry has successfully uploaded to your mission.
If there isn’t an upload in progress and your entry is still spinning, you’ve encountered a bug. Log out of your account and log back in to see if the entry was uploaded properly.
Refresh your app data
If your entry appears to be uploading for a long time, and there isn’t any indication that your upload is still in progress (see above), try refreshing your app data. You can refresh your app data by (1) closing and reopening the app or (2) logging out and logging back into your dscout account. This should refresh your app data and remove any cached images.
