Would you like to export your Moodscope data? Thursday April 16, 2015

Last week we talked about the importance of adding notes to your daily scores as it's helpful in pinpointing what may be causing your ups and downs. Because of this, we doubled the amount of space in which to write those annotations.

When we first developed Moodscope, we thought that your annotations should be private - for your eyes only - so you could be honest and totally free in what you wrote, but gave the facility to share your scores with your buddies if you chose.

The fact that your notes are private is staying as it is, but we know that many members have had requests from their therapists/doctors to see their notes as they think it may help with their therapy and others just want theirs to be able to do their own analysis.

So today we've added another new feature to moodscope - you can now choose to download all your scores AND all your annotations.

Just log in to your Moodscope account and click on the 'Manage Account' link in the top navigation. In this section you will see a link 'Export My Account Data (Scores and Annotations)'. Click on this to export all your data from Moodscope in a CSV file, which can be opened by Excel, Numbers, and many other spreadsheet applications.

We hope you'll find it helpful.

Kind regards.

Hi Caroline and the moodscope team. I feel anxious about even making this comment but it is things like the recording of data (and the feelings of guilt when I am unable to keep up with it) that seem to be a key factor in my depression. There are clearly lots of users who are very pleased with this development. For me it is something that deters me further. Self defeating? Gutless? Possibly. I have found that only a person centred and psychospiritual approach has been effective for me (in eleven years of active depression management and self responsibility). I will continue to follow moodscope with interest (and have done since first hearing of it during the Jenni Murray interview). Warm regards, Peter

Thank you so much Caroline and the rest of the Moodscope team - I've often felt I wanted this, and only recently was wishing there was a way of doing it - brilliant!

Hi there, please don't feel bad about not recording data - if it's not for you then that's absolutely fine. Different people deal with their depression in different ways and you are lucky that you have found something that works for you. Kind regards. Caroline
