This is the main entry page of your farm recording software.
To keep our online farming software app as simple to use as possible, we only use a few buttons for doing different things on the site.
A great feature of our online software is it's ability to allow you to record the maintenance and repairs to not only your farm vehicles but also equipment such as hay balers, combines, slashers, four wheelers, motorbikes, water pumps, etc.
There are a number of ways to enter new Maintenance & Repairs records. The easiest way is to first add your Equipment Brands and Equipment Types by clicking on the appropriate link, typing in the relevant information and clicking on "Save New". Before we record any Maintenance & Repairs, we must also add the equipment that we are going to carry out any Maintenance & Repairs to. Refer to Equipment Inventory below to see how to do this.
To record a new Maintenance or Repair job, click on the "Equipment Maintenance" link, then the "Maintenance & Repairs" link and click "Add New". By clicking in the "Equipment brand & model" cell, a drop down list of previously entered equipment will appear. Enter all relevant information and click "Save New". "Job entered by" is automatically populated with your user-name on saving the new record.
At any time, you are able to view, modify or delete your records by clicking on the "Maintenance & Repairs" link, and from the table view, click on the relevant record.
Recording your farm equipment information has never been easier. By clicking on "Equipment Maintenance" link and then the "Equipment Inventory" link, you are able to record information such as equipment brand, type, model, service information for oils and filters and also add a photo if you wish.

When new equipment has been added into the system, you will notice that when you open the window for that equipment, there will be a link on the right named "Maintenance & Repairs". By clicking on this button, you will be taken to a page that shows all of the Maintenance & Repairs that have been carried out on this particular piece of equipment.

This is also where new tasks are entered. To add a new task, click on the "Add New" button. Give the task a meaningful name and tick the urgent box if the job is urgent. Enter the date and task details. The "assigned to" drop-down names are picked up from the "Employees" page but you can also add another employee by clicking on the green box with the plus button which will open a new window where you can add or alter employee details.
