Ohme & e Niro questions

Took delivery of my e Niro yesterday and as this is my first e car, I have a couple of questions regarding charging
I got the Ohme charger so I could sync it to my OctopusEnergy tariff. Plugged it in to charge and was expected it to show on the app the percentage of charge of the vehicle so would know when it was fully charged. Does it show anywhere?
Also, is it best to charge it daily and make use of the cheaper nighttime tariff rather than charging it, say, every 10 days when it will probably be down to about 20%?
Many thanks- I'm sure I'll have a few more questions in the coming days!

Like the original poster I'm a few days into my E-Niro / Ohme ownership. I love it but it's making me feel really stupid. I've moved to Octopus but I'm waiting for Smart meters before shifting to the GO tarriff. In the meatime I'm playing with charge schedules but i'm confused.

- if i want the Ohme App to own the scheduled charging, I'm assuming that i don't set up any car schedules? Are there any settings i should make within the car?

- I've set up a very basic schedule of 80% target by 7:00am every morning. No stipulation on cost as for now i have a tarriff that is the same all day long. With this done, do i need to do anything within the dashboard? What is the Start Charge icon? Is this just an option to overide the setting within scheduled charging?

i'm sure this will all be second nature soon but it all feels like a Rubik's cube at the moment.
Thanks for your help.
