Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements for Daylite 6?
Daylite 6 requires OS X 10.10 or higher on Mac, and iOS 9 or later on iPad and iPhone.
What is “Cloud”?
Daylite Cloud is the same native Mac, iPhone, and iPad app, but without the need to manage a server. You pay a subscription fee and we manage all the background syncing, data backups, etc. for you. If you’re unsure if cloud is right for you, visit our self-serve vs cloud page.
If I upgrade to the Loyalty plan, will I always get this price?
Yes. If you’ve purchased any version of Daylite before December 2015 and you choose to upgrade to the Loyalty migration plan while it is offered, your plan will be honoured for as long as you use Daylite. Any additional users you add in the future will also get this price.
How much storage space do I get with Cloud?
Daylite Cloud subscriptions include 2GB of storage per user. We’ve found that this is more than enough for most customers. However, additional storage is available in 20GB intervals for $5 a month per account (not per user).
Can I get an archive of my data?
Absolutely. You can download an archive of your data from within your Daylite Preferences> Cloud. It is exported to SQLite format.
When do my subscription payments start?
After moving to Daylite Cloud, your payment cycle will begin on the day your account is activated and available.
Is there a trial period for moving to Cloud?
No. After moving your database to the cloud you can’t move it back to Self-Serve. However, if you want to try Daylite Cloud you can create a separate trial account to test. Testing should be done with a secondary email address because it’s connected to your account.
Why is syncing faster with Cloud?
Syncing happens when the Daylite app and the server (or cloud server) talk to each other. We’ve adjusted the structure of the cloud server so that it requires less connections or “talking” to each other for those changes to happen. This makes your regular day-to-day syncing significantly faster – up to 3 times in most cases.
Can I test Daylite 6 before deciding to upgrade?
Yes. But you should install Daylite Server 6 and Daylite 6 on a separate Mac to test. You need to use a separate Mac because any new or edited information in Daylite after updating to version 6, will not be available if you revert back to Daylite 5.
What are the steps to upgrade to Daylite 6 Self-Serve?
The upgrade procedures from a previous version of Daylite to Daylite 6 are similar to the past. Please visit the detailed Upgrading page for specific instructions.
Where can I download Daylite 6?
If you’re already using Daylite and want to download Daylite 6 for Self-Serve, visit our Self-Serve download page.
Why is Daylite 5 not compatible with macOS Sierra and iOS 10?
As with previous updates, we support the current version of Daylite on Apple's latest release of Operating System minus one. This means supporting Daylite 6 on macOS Sierra and iOS 10, and on El Capitan & iOS 9. Older versions of Daylite are not made compatible with new Operating System updates from Apple. Our focus is on improving the current version of Daylite, and adding additional features to improve your user experience. With Daylite Cloud you're always on the newest version so you're compatible with Apple's latest release of macOS and iOS.
