To help you get around, here are some important pages to note:
- Dashboard - View a snapshot overview of each one of your yards. Use the left/right arrows to switch between yards.
- Yards - View a list of your apiaries. Click on the yard name to open a pop up menu to perform actions on the yard, or click on the dropdown arrow to see the list of hives in that yard.
- Hives - View a list of your beehives. Each row shows a snapshot overview of miscellaneous stats on the individual hive.
- Inspection - Record everything you did and spotted during a beehive 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 you'd like.
- To Do - Beekeeping is fun, but it can also be a lot of work! Create a To Do so you know what needs to be done at your next yard visit or inspection. Never miss those important tasks like feeding, inspections and queen status updates!
- Harvests - Whether it's honey, wax, pollen or propolis, it's important that you track where it came from and how much you've harvested. On this page, you can do just that! We list a number of different units of measurements to track quantity, including by frame, pint, gallon or bucket.
- Inventory - This page lists your current inventory. Active components are the ones currently in use on your hives. Shed refers to components not currently in use. Total is the total number of that component, according to your books.
- Reports - View basic summaries of data gathered from your account.
- Maps - View a map of all your bee yard locations. Zoom in to view the three concentric rings surrounding each individual bee yard. The one, two, and three-mile markers give you an idea of the area your bees forage and the enviroenemtsn they encounter. Note: Click the Global Map tab at the top of the page to view a map of all the bee yard locations from other user's who've opted-in to share their yard locations with the HiveTracks community.
- Community - Create an online groups to share information and insight with other beekeepers.
