How to use prefixes and descriptions to customise and manage your farm record keeping.

Updated over a week ago

Using prefixes and paddock descriptions will allow you to customise your reports and your data further, especially if you are running multiple blocks on the same farm. See our Reporting article for a guide on customising your reports.

Note: for more information on the difference between blocks and farms and what would work best for you see Farm vs Block


You can enter in paddock descriptions to represent which block/farm they belong to. You can see an example of this in the image below.

This will allow you to use the 'Group by' feature in reports to separate your paddocks by the description field as seen above. Subtotals for each different paddock description will be calculated in each report to help make decision-making easy.

Running multiple blocks on the one map will mean your inventories are shared. To help distinguish between chemicals, feeds and treatments you can add prefixes.

You can then use the 'filter all columns' feature to search for the items belonging to a certain farm/block.

You can also add in the block/farm they are associated with in the description box.  

See Inventory for a guide to Adding, Editing, Copying and Archiving items.


By adding prefixes to the names of mobs you can filter through your livestock reports on a block by block basis. You can do this when you're Adding Livestock or you can edit your existing mobs.
