About Events & Categories

Events are diary entries with a descriptive text of any length, like a paragraph or a page in a physical diary. Events have a time and date, and may or may not be related to or have an impact on the tracked symptoms.

Events are displayed in the Main View timeline (as diamonds), as well as as a sorted list of events in the Events View.

In order to group events they have a category. You can create and modify event categories freely.

While you can record any type of event you like, think a bit about how to structure your diary at the beginning.

Alogea uses event categories to analyse any potential impact on symptoms. Create at least some categories for the purpose of determining or tracking their impact on symptoms.

Some examples for Categories are
  • Physiotherapy sessions
  • Pilates group
  • Mindfulness sessions
  • Work events
  • Weather
  • Personal Milestones
  • Treatment events
Events can be 'momentary' (have one date only) or have a time duration between two dates.
For the latter set an event 'end' date/time separately in the 'Events' view Diary Page.

Alogea will calculate how your tracked symptom(s) change from directly before to directly after events of a Category to help you see the impact.

Can I see the impact of events on my symptoms?

Alogea will calculate how your tracked symptom(s) change from directly before to directly after events of a Category to help you see the impact.

You can see this in the Events View after tapping on an event, as a Chart on the right side of a Diary Page.

If you track more than one symptom, you can change this by tapping on the symptom title above the chart.

The Chart may show a short horizontal line on the left and right side - these are the averages of ratings directly before and after events of this category.
If the lines are inside a blue box, this shows the variation of symptoms.

The arrow in the middle shows the change - downward and green for reduction and upward and red for increase. The larger the arrow the bigger the change. The % of change in relation to the maximum range value is shown above the arrow.

The text under the chart describes this change.

Events with green arrows should be helpful, those with red arrows seem to aggravate your symptom.
