A Logmore QR code is capable of holding a lot of data.
However, when a logger isn't scanned for a long time, there's more data than one QR code can hold. In this case, a "full" QR code is "archived". We call it History QR Code.
In this article, you will learn how to can scan History QR Codes and upload missing data to Logmore Cloud.

When is it time to check for History QR codes?
How to find out that you have gaps in your data? In Logmore Cloud, check the Mission's individual page and look for:
- gaps in measurements
- a message saying Incomplete data
The data is not lost when a QR code is filled. Instead, old, "full" QR codes are safely stored as history QR codes on the data logger.
Note that the incomplete data issue might also occur if the logger itself (not the external probe) was stored in low temperatures (below +2°C). Being in cold temperatures might have prevented the screen to show the most recent QR code. You need to warm the logger and click the button to update the screen. Check the guide here.
History QR code notification
After scanning the QR code for the first time, the following notification is shown in the scanner, if history QR codes have been produced.
