How do I use the Data Sharing feature of Logger Pro to send data to Graphical Analysis 4 via Wi-Fi?

The installation of Logger Pro 3.8.6 and newer includes the option to install support for Data Sharing.

WINDOWS

Data Sharing is installed by default on Macintosh when using version 3.8.7 and newer. No additional action is required during installation.

After enabling this option during the install process of Logger Pro, you will see a Data Sharing option in the File menu of Logger Pro. If you do not see Data Sharing in the File menu, reinstall Logger Pro, taking care to include Data Sharing.

Choose Enable Data Sharing from the File menu to activate Logger Pro as a Data Sharing source. Note that when Data Sharing is enabled, Logger Pro automatically stores runs before collecting the next run. This change in behavior will revert when Data Sharing is turned off.
