GCPC EPISODE 465

GCPC MAILBAG: Ask Our Hosts – Scott Berks:
Here is a question for you. I have been caching for a while now but have not expanded my technological abilities much. Recently I decided I need to figure out how to run pocket queries. I am able to do that just fine but my question is how the heck do I get them to become available on my app? I am currently using cachly, you would think since the app is connected with my geocaching.com account they would magically appear, but this does not seem to be the case. Any tips?
EB3754 Genoa, IL

Answer from Nic at Cach.ly

“Sounds like they are not generating the PQ correctly (on the geocaching.com site). They need to make sure they are checking the check boxes for which days to run the queries, once they do this, and get the email from geocaching.com it will be available in Cachly.

Once they have generated the PQ online, it will instantly be available in Cachly. It just sounds like they have not yet generated the PQ.”
