 i've got the fitbit flex and I'm haveing way to much trouble figureing it out.  I finally got the my fitness pal to interact with the fitbit app.  I think i'm just technologicly impared lol.  I can't even figure out how to make sure its on, I can't figure out how to track sleep or anything really.  the only thing I've been able to figure out how to do so far is to track my water intake. 

Someone please help me

I don't have mine linked...I just use the website and enter things just like on MFP...

To track sleep: when you are going to bed, tap it a few times...it should buzz and light up 2 lights...when you wake up- tap it a few times- it should buzz and light up all the lights. 

There really isn't anything to figure out for me since I don't link it with anything.

1. Are you using just the website for logging or are you also using the phone app?
If you are using the website only, make sure the dongle is plugged in. I personally use the phone app more then the website.
If you are using the phone app, make sure you have bluetooth on, that way all changes you make are synced with the device.  

2. To control the Flex, is by tapping it x amount of times or for x length of time. I am not 100% sure what all taps and such work, I use the Force and had the One. I am looking at moving to the Flex if my Force becomes unusable.

I have the force so I don't know how it works for tracking sleep but I do have mine linked to myfitness pal.

I only enter workouts to fitbit. It pushes over my burned calories (estimate) to MFP. I enter all of my food in MFP becase the data base is better and it pushes to my fitbit. I finally feel like I have the 2 figured out.
