In Fing App 8.8.0 the status of persons in the German version is mistranslated.
You use:
Links (but Links in German is the direction "left")
Eingegangen (this is translated "received" in English)

Please correct this and use the following terms:
Left (not at home) = Abwesend
Arrived (at home)= Anwesend

    Hi @s_rosenthaler, another user suggested recently "Verlassen"; can you help understand the differences?
    Thank you!

    "Verlassen" is meaning actively leaving a place, so this doesn't make sense in my opinion - You are at home or not.
    "Abwesend" (Away English)
    and
    "Anwesend" (Present in English)
    do actually reflect the actual status. More streamlined, as I think.

    So "Verlassen" means leaving and "Abwesend" means gone, left, or away in English.

    We have too many words that mean the same thing.

    @rooted Yes, the same for German and English:-) And Swiss German is even worse. To many local dialects. That's why Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri on HomePod are not available in Switzerland;-)
