Step 1.  Set up a HOBOlink account if you do not have one already. (HOBOlink) Note: There is no need to register an MX logger on HOBOlink. 

Step 2.  Add your HOBOlink credentials to your HOBOmobile app.  See image below. 

 

Step 3. Now, when you connect and readout an MX data logger, the data will be uploaded to your HOBOlink account.  You can stop here if you are only using HOBOlink for additional safe data storage.

  3. Continue creating your export, going through steps 2 (choosing the Logger and Channels) and 3 (Column ordering) in the export screen.
  4. Click Save at the bottom of the screen.
