What are those pill icons on the graph for?
The pill icons represent medicines that are either taken or due. You can tap on them to find out about them.
On the readout page "mini-graph", you will most likely see at least one icon representing the medicine(s) you created, assuming the due times are in the current graphing range. Here are two examples where the current time is 10:00: The first example shows a medicine that's just been taken and the next dose is due at midday. The second shows an overdue medicine that was due to be taken at 09:30.
Here is a list of meanings and capabilities for the medicine icons (the colour scheme also applies to the 'Taken' and 'Upcoming' lists on the Medicines page):
- A grey icon shows a medicine that's due in the near future.
- A green icon shows a medicine that has been marked as taken.
- A red icon shows an overdue medicine.
- Any medicine icon can be tapped, which gives summary information such as "Co-codamol for Freddy: due at 3:00pm". There is an option to take you to the medicine detail page for full information or to make changes.
- The icons are often in pairs. In the first example above, the green icon is for a medicine that has been taken and the grey icon is for the same medication that has a new due date in the near future. The app will attempt to put these related icons in line horizontally where possible.
- The app supports multiple medications at the same time. It will stack the icons vertically until it runs out of room, at which point there is no guarantee that all the medicines are shown on the mini-graph. The definitive reference is always the medicines list page.
