Setup > Activities is where tasks that are carried out on a field are managed. They allow you to record a task taking place and also to associate a cost with that task. Examples of activities would include ploughing, spraying, and rolling.
An activity must be associated with an activity type and may be given a unit price per hectare. Advanced customers can give the same activity a different price for different businesses.
Activities are selected as you create a job and allow you to see how much the activity will cost, based upon the fields selected and their target area (ha). You will also select a piece of equipment for the job. As activities are the part of the job record that hold onto the pricing, you may wish to have more than one activity that you would use with the same equipment – for example, you may have a plough listed in equipment, but have two activities named ‘Ploughing – light land’ and ‘Ploughing – heavy land’, both with different costs.
Some activity types require a product to be selected in the same job, whereas others do not. For example, an activity type of spraying must have at least one product selected in a job, whereas an activity type of tillage does not require a product to be selected in a job.
