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 drawing additional shapes to show where the note applies to with more detail. Notes can be attached to fields, features and herds or drawn as markers on to your map.
Tap the big plus (+) Note button at the bottom right.
Give your note a title, a quick bit of text to make sure you can recognise it in a list later.
Next you will see that you have the option of Marking the Note as a to-do by adding a due date.
You can add a description or a photo to your Note. This can be any additional details that you need to share about the work being done. It will appear in the comment section of the note. This starts a discussion which other people on your farm can contribute to.
Next you can add a location for your Note to your digital farm map.
Drawing a note lets you mark an area as a point, line or area. You can change the location of your note by moving the map so that the marker is in the correct place. You can quickly place the note in your current location by tapping the ‘locate me’ button (which looks like a target). When you are happy with the location for your task tap ‘Create’.
Attaching Notes to a Field
Notes can be attached to the fields you have mapped out on your digital farm. Tap ‘Add to fields’ and this will bring up a list of your fields.
