MFP and Samsung Health not fully syncing malindamfw — Nov 14, 2017 07:48AM PST

I have the two apps connected (and it says so in both apps) to log exercise and steps into My Fit Pal via Samsung Health and log food into Samsung Health via My Fit Pal; however, when I check Samsung Health there aren't any food entries, and when I check MFP there aren't any exercise/step entries.

I have updated all my apps and my phone but still no luck; however, I know they are linked because when I updated my weight through MFP the new weight showed up on Samsung Health.

I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Any help would be greatly appreciated?
Thanks :)

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Can you double check for me that when you linked the two, when authorizing what syncs between Samsung and MyFitnessPal, that you scrolled all the way to the bottom of the list, and ensured all options were toggled to “On”?

Regards,

Hi, I confirm this problem. When I log food in mfp it is not synced to samsung health and the exercises from my gear s3 sport does not sync to mfp. the apps are linked and all options are checked (food, exercises, ...). When I chose the menue "Steps" in mfp I get an error message "cannot connect to server for syncronizing data" Same device as user "malindamfw": Galaxy Note 8 Android 7.1.1 no root
Thanks for your help

Hi goofy586

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for bringing this to our attention. We are aware of the issue where data is not syncing with SHealth and MyFitnessPal and that the steps page in the MyFitnessPal app shows an “Error Occurred: We were unable to connect to the server to synchronize” alert. We hope to have a fix in place as soon as possible. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Warm Regards,
Bruce
