The task bar helps you focus on what is important, showing you what is coming up today and in the future. It also contains a shopping and to do list which can be seen and completed by any staff on-farm. This video will show you how to find the task bar and set tasks.
Now that you have the task bar sorted, you can save time by setting up task templates for those frequent tasks that happen around the farm. Task templates will pre-populate the basic information and requirements so that you can quickly assign tasks with the click of a button.

Blocks are a useful visual tool for planning land use over the coming season, such as cropping, and set stocking.
Add some extra detail to your farm map and include features and infrastructure such as buildings, tanks and waterlines. This can provide you with a quick and easy visual reference which is especially useful when you are inducting new staff or contractors.
