Activity Collection and Activity Views 

  • Boundary Creation
    • Users can create field boundaries using one or a combination of the four tools: 
      • Pick a Field allows users to check if there is a pre-digitized boundary available and then select it.
      • Draw allows users to author new boundaries by drawing them by hand. 
      • Pivot allows users to add a circular boundary on the map and make edits to the radius, area or location.
      • GPS uses the user’s current location to follow them and log boundaries.  There are two ways to collect a GPS boundary: 
        • Auto log follows the user and automatically logs vertices, using their current location, as they move through the field.
        • Manual log allows users to log a vertex when they select Drop Vertex at their current location.
    • Once the field boundary is drawn, but not saved, users can make edits using the Edit tools: 
      • Edit Vertex allows users to view, move, and add more vertices to a boundary.
      • Draw Split allows users to split a boundary into multiple areas.
      • GPS Split allows users to split a boundary into multiple areas using their current location to log the split.
      • Users can also edit field boundaries using the Auto Log and Manual Log tools.
  • Scouting
    • Users have the option of collecting Scouting activities based on points in a field or by using polygon data.  Users can enter information regarding the Scouting Activity such as  Crop Information, Weeds, Insects, Diseases, etc.
      • Users can add multiple Photos while scouting a field.
      • Users have access to the Scouting Tool Bar which contains Tools, Settings, and Notes:
        • Tools gives users access to Multi-Select, Delete Point, and Drop GPS Point.
        • Settings allows users to stay in the same view and apply changes to their collection.
          • General allows users to make changes to the map type and the units of measure.
          • Activity & Boundary enables users to turn on a GPS offset and also turn on the Select All Polygons setting.
          • GPS allows users to change their GPS settings from Auto Log to Manual Log.
          • Scouting allows users to change their scouting type from Point to Polygon.
        • Notes is now conveniently located in the tool bar to make it easier to add notes to your Scouting Activity.
      • A Scouting Activity can be saved as an application or recommendation.
      • All Scouting Activities that are either created or shared with yo , will remain on your device.
  • Scouting View Options 
    • Applications 
      • Saved Scouting applications have the swipe option available so users can Edit, Re-Scout, or Delete operations.
        • Edit allows users to enter their collection, make changes, and re-save the activity.
        • Re-Scout lets users access their previous scout and make changes to the field health, and then save it as a new activity. This allows users to make changes as the season progresses without re-creating the activity each time.   
        • Delete gives users the ability to delete an activity they no longer wish to keep. 
    • Recommendations
      • Users can use the swipe features on an activity to Edit, Fulfill and Delete a Recommendation. 
        • Edit allows users to enter their collection, make changes, and re-save the activity.
        • Fulfill allows users to show that the recommendation was completed and lets users create an application showing what was applied. Sirrus then links these two activities together.
        • Delete gives users the ability to delete an activity they no longer wish to keep. 
    • Settings
      •  Setup 
        • General allows users to make changes to their map type. Users can select from Hybrid, Roads, or Satellite for their background imagery. Units lets users change their unit of measure for the app. They have the option of switching between English and Metric Settings.
        • Activity & Boundary enables users to turn on a GPS offset and also turn on the Select All Polygons setting when they are using Polygon collection. Users can also adjust their Boundary Creation Minimum so they have an area minimum size limit when creating a new boundary.
