    This post will serve as a one-stop-shop for all things QRZ Logbook.

    Please familiarize yourself with the contents of this article, and only then, if your question is not answered, proceed to the "I Still Need Help" section.

    It contains the following sections:

    • Frequently Asked Questions

    • Current Statistics
    • Features
    • User Guide
    • Known Issues
    I will update this post periodically with more information.​

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    The Frequently Asked Questions document is updated periodically. It can be found here: http://logbook.qrz.com/page/faq.html

    Current Statistics:
    Current statistics are updated nightly and can be found here: http://logbook.qrz.com/page/stats.html

    Items marked with an asterisk ("*") are subscriber only features (XML Subscription and up.) This list is not all-inclusive.

    • Multiple Logbooks
    You can maintain more than one logbook for a variety of reasons. Maybe you have more than one callsign that you manage (http://logbook.qrz.com/page/faq.html#managecall.) Maybe you want a separate logbook for portable operations (/P) or maybe you operate summers in Wyoming, and winters in Arizona. It's easy to create additional logbooks by selecting "New Logbook..." from the logbook drop-down menu.​

    • Shared Logbooks or Manager Access*
    You can give other users access to add QSOs to your logbook (such as a club callsign, or if you have a QSL manager) - (http://logbook.qrz.com/page/faq.html#clubcall)​

    • Automated QSO data population
    When you add a QSO or import an ADIF, QRZ does everything it can to populate empty fields with data we have on hand. What if you add a QSO with someone who's callsign has expired and been reissued? QRZ Logbook utilizes date-ranges for logbooks. If a logbook exists for that callsign that encompasses the date of your QSO, we'll populate the QSO with the data from that logbook, even if the callsign no longer exists or has been re-issued. This is why we encourage you to add logbooks and QSOs for your old callsigns.​

    If you import an ADIF to most online logbooks, any data not needed by that system is discarded, When you later export an ADIF, any additional ADIF fields you had were lost. QRZ Logbook stores that data and exports it with each ADIF export.​

    You can send QSOs from QRZ direct to LoTW without having to take the additional steps of exporting the ADIF, signing with TQSL, then uploading to LoTW. QRZ can do it all for you! - (http://logbook.qrz.com/page/faq.html#lotwsetup)

    • Download FROM LoTW
    You can download QSOs FROM LoTW without having to take the additional steps of exporting the ADIF, then uploading to QRZ.QRZ can do it all for you! AND We'll give you credit for your LoTW confirmations! - (http://files.qrz.com/static/qrz/lotw_download_guide.pdf)​

    • Desktop Logging Application Interface*
    QRZ provides an interface to desktop logging applications that allows them to automatically sync QSOs with your QRZ logbook as you enter them in that application. Note: it is up to the individual developers to implement this interface into their applications, and most popular either already do, or are working to support this. Developers, info here: (http://logbook.qrz.com/page/faq.html#api)​

    • QRZ Logbook Leaderboard
    • Automated Callsign Change Support
    When you change your callsign on QRZ (either through a normal FCC update, or in the case of DX, through a callsign change request) your old logbook is ended, and a new logbook for your new callsign is created automatically. Your old callsign logbook is still accessible from the logbook drop-down menu.​

    • QSO Confirmation Request System
    You can select QSOs using the checkbox to the right of the QSO and click the Actions button at the bottom to request confirmation. This notifies the other party that you would like for them to add the QSO to their logbook. They simply enter the time, band and mode and voila! Instant confirmation..

    • Logbook Analyzer & Operating Awards
    As part of our Operating Awards system, you can view an in-depth analysis of your logbook. Simply click on "Awards", select the applicable logbook(s), and select the award you're interested in. This will show you your status towards completing that award and detailed counts of confirmed and unconfirmed QSOs for each entity and band. If you're eligible for an award, you will be prompted to apply for it then!​

    • Logbook Widget
    You can display your last 15 logbook entries (just like the Logbook tab of your Biography page) on any website! - (http://forums.qrz.com/showthread.php?424404-QRZ-Announces-New-Log-Status-Widget)​

    User Guide:
    The QRZ Logbook User Guide is at this point a bit outdated. It still contains good information, but is in need of an overhaul. We will soon be replacing it with a series of video guides.
    The User Guide can still be viewed here: http://files.qrz.com/static/qrz/lbv2guide.pdf

    Known Issues:

    I Still Need Help:

    On Feb 5, you deleted your logbook containing 18412 records after being warned that all would be deleted. You must import them from your back up ADIF file, if you have one. It is important to regularly back up your logbook.

    I am unable to match incoming QSL's that are made with mode JT65. They all fail to match when attempting to confirm. My JT9 QSO's work fine. Only JT65 are not matching. Recommend you eliminate all the sub-mode entries for JT65, ie. JT65x. I suspect ops are selecting a specific sub-mode and my logbook (RumLog) only logs JT65 or JT9.

    QRZ Logbook correctly handles submodes. IE: JT65 matches JT65x, SSB matches LSB or USB, etc...

    I see confirmed JT65 QSOs in your logbook. If you're having issues with a specific QSO, we can investigate that, but in 99% of cases that are sent to us, something does not match, IE: Callsigns, Dates, Bands, Modes, or Time within 30 minutes of eachother.

    Yes, that was the error I received, Date/Time, Band and mode. I rejected them since I have no idea what data they entered for the QSO.

    Also, I tried doing an import of my ADIF file and got a bunch of errors:

    Error 1. Insert error on record: N4AU de KJ6RGX on 2015-01-22 19:10:00.
    DXCC could not be determined for N4AU
    Error 376. Error on record: N4RP de KJ6RGX on 2012-03-08 20:19:00.
    You either do not have access to a logbook with the callsign: KJ6RGX,
    or the QSOs date/time is outside of the logbooks date range.

    Is this an error being caused by my log program? I'm not sure why these entries failed, or how to fix the issue.

    Your ADIF file lacks the DXCC enumeration field. See: http://adif.org/304/ADIF_304.htm#QSO_Fields

    The QSO on 2012-03-08 is earlier than the start date of your logbook, that currently is 2012-03-11. Readjust you logbook date range:

    Open your logbook
    Scroll to START date and adjust it.
    Save changes

    This is interesting... We should be populating DXCC if you don't provide it... I'll look into N4AU to see why it's happening.
