Support Uploading MyFitbitData.zip Raw Data Export from Fitbit
Recently Fitbit enabled access to a download of the full data it holds via https://www.fitbit.com/settings/data/export
Would be great to import this data instead of giving API access. Also bc the API collected data is only a couple of months old, whereas this is the entire history of the account. This would translate into more paid users for Zenobase, since it would for most ppl instantly be a lot of data.

API-collected data should go back as far as you need it to, just select a date that's far back enough when creating the task.
I have mostly given up on adding new file import options: It's too much trouble to maintain, as you end up supporting multiple versions for each app or service (formats change over time, but users still expect to be able to upload previously exported files). On top of that, some apps have locale-specific timestamps and units in their files...
A better approach may be to have a public repository of scripts that can deal with specific formats, and that can be tweaked for each case as needed. I already have a small collection of one-off scripts that were used to parse and import data from various sources. So if I have any time to spend on this, I'll invest it in cleaning up and sharing that!
