You can use tasks to keep track of what work has to be done on your farm, who needs to do it and when. They can be markers on the farm or attached to fields. If they are attached to fields you can see outstanding tasks and a history of when tasks were completed in field view (Read more). If you set a due date on a task you will get a reminder when it needs to be done. You can add extra information with comments, pictures and attached files. Record when tasks have been completed to build up a more complete record on what has happened on your farm over time.
