Hive Tracks is divided into several parts. To help you get around, here are some important links to note:
Sidebar Navigation (on left of screen)
Dashboard is your Hive Tracks homepage. From here, get a quick overview of each one of your apiaries.
Yards shows a list of your apiaries, each with a dropdown arrow to expand to see your list of hives.
Hives shows a list of all your bee hives.
In an Inspection there are many things you can record and we try to capture as many possibilities as we can, but it doesn't mean you need to check these items all the time. So, record as much or little as needed.
A To Do helps you stay on top of what needs to be done next. Never miss those important tasks like feeding, inspections, and queen status updates.
Harvests shows all the harvest data that you've recorded. We offer a number of different units of measurements to track your harvests, such as by frame, pints, gallons, buckets, etc.
The Inventory page tracks all of the hive components currently in-use for all Active hives in your account. Hive components used in Dead or Inactive hives do not appear in the Active tally - those can be accounted for by manually updating the numbers in the Shed column.
The Reports page lists a number of online and printable reports of key metrics gathered different data sets in your account.
Maps is where you can view a Google Map of all bee yard locations. Click the Global Map tab to see all of the shared yards from other Hive Tracks users (note: yards only show in the Global Map if the user manually opted-in to do so).
Community brings beekeeping clubs, classes, and friends together on the Hive Tracks platform to share information and insight with one another.
