In the daily generation view, when I go back more than 40 days, it does not load any data. The loading symbol on top just keeps spinning forever. The same happens when I try to update the monthly generation view (which is not showing data for all months).

Nice and useful data graphs, I particularly like the consumption one that shows me with different colours the TOU tariffs and solar. But why do grids use random values? Why not just draw lines at round numbers like 1kW rather than 1023W 🤔 And thanks for fixing that daylight savings bug 😋

The grid lines are spaced evenly and fall at whatever the maximum graph value is divided by 10. Use the Ceiling settings in System / Edit to make the maximum values something like 5000kw and your grid lines will be nice 500kw increments as well. This will also stop graphs becoming unreadable because of irregular high values that make the bars tiny

App will no longer allow me to connect to my account. Wasted a load of time trying to figure this out. Annoyingly I had only recently subscribed to ad-free and some widgets!
