I recently upgraded my phone and my mileage log was deleted. Also, any transactions that I forwarded to the app were gone. Is there a way to recover the logs?

Upgraded from an iPhone 7 to an 8.  The app was on my new phone, but not the mileage log and any forwarded transactions.


Hello there, tracytg1982,

You should still be able to view your tracked miles and forwarded transactions after upgrading to a new phone. Your data is stored in your account so you should be able to retain all information. 

You can open your account using a browser to check those information. I'd suggest pulling up the mileage log report and open the list of your transactions. Let me guide you how.

  1. Go to the Reports  menu.
  2. Select Mileage Log.
  3. Set the date range.
  4. Click View.

On the other hand, go to the Transactions menu so you can view all your account's transactions.

If you're able to view your miles and transactions using the browser, you can try to uninstall and reinstall your app. Once completed, you can log back in to your account to check if you're now able to view the same information.

Here's an article that'll help you troubleshoot your mobile app concern: Fix Mileage Tracker for your iPhone.

Please let me know if you need further assistance in viewing your miles and transactions using your QuickBooks app. I'm always here to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
