Notes are for day-to-day recording of information. A record of something you’ve done, an observation in the field, a problem or a reminder of information you may want to refer to later. You can add more information or discuss notes with comments as well as attach pictures and files, and drawing additional shapes to show where the note applies to with more detail.

  1. Tap the big plus (+) button at the bottom right.
  2. Tap ‘New Note’.
  3. Give your note a title, a quick bit of text to make sure you can recognise it in a list later.
  4. Choose the location of your note. You can quickly place it in your current location by tapping the ‘locate me’ button (which looks like a target). You can also move the map with your finger to make sure it’s in the right place and tap ‘Create’.
  5. Your note has now been created. Next you will see a screen with your note showing its title and location on your farm. This is where you will see comments, pictures and files that have been added to it.
  6. If that is all the information you need then click back (<) top left to head back to the main screen. You will now be able to see your note on the Activity list. 
  7. You can add more information by writing a comment in the box at the bottom and tapping send. This starts a discussion which other people on your farm can contribute to.
  8. If you would like to add photos, more points, lines or tag a person so they know to look at it tap the plus button (+) bottom left. You can also change this note to a task if you need to make it a ‘to do’ (see instructions here).
  9. Once you have added all you want - head back (<) to the main map.
