How to Export Data to Lilypad
There are two ways to export data from eoStar to Lilypad:
- Manually through the Lilypad Interface.
- Automatically using a Scheduled Task.
The Lilypad interface is used to manually gather and transmit data from eoStar to Lilypad. eoStar recommends using the Lilypad scheduled task to handle this process automatically, but this interface can still be helpful if data for a specific date range needs to be sent.
For instructions on using this interface, please see the Lilypad Interface article.
Lilypad Scheduled Task
The Lilypad Export scheduled task allows data to be automatically transmitted from eoStar to Lilypad. The export can be configured to include up to 30 prior days worth of information.
For instructions on setting up the Lilypad Export, please see the Scheduled Task – Lilypad Export article.
