Task Lists need improvement...

I love this app but it does not quite allow tracking of tasks and feedings in as much depth as gardens operate at.  There are many more tasks and procedures that an operational garden needs to be able to track.  I find myself refering to my google docs for procedure lists and treatment recipes but would be so much nicer to track and schedule those tasks including recipes within this app!  I tried to create a nutrient schedule to offer recipes for foliar treatments and IPM but the app doesnt allow me to overlay multiple nutrient schedules to the same garden.  Thought this may be a way around but didn't work.  As far as the "tasks" option, I find it extremly manual as you cant load a pre created task for duplicate.  Making every treatment custom which is time consuming and can lead to miscommunication.  I wish i could create tasks/procedures once then call on them for scheduling later.  

There is also a huge possiblility this can be done within the software but I am struggling to find ways to track and schedule specific tasks that have specific recipes that need to be refered to.  I can cut an copy from my google docs but that is not realistic for the long run trying to utilize this software to manage and operate a garden at optimisation.  

Please let me know if anyone has ways around said problems as I do really enjoy this program.

 

  • I use wunderlist for that if they could take all the features from there and apply it here it would be great your able to invite people to join task lists and keep track of who did which task

  • I agree with your statement bago. I have not found a way to do what you are asking either. 


    • I did try another route that is at least allowing me to track the tasks as "watering/feedings" I put my IPM products in my nutrient library with recipes. So I created new "schedules" to include those tasks. When I create a feeding I select "water" before there is a crop selected then it allows you to choose which "schedule" you want to use allowing me to select "PFR-97" then in the notes area in all caps I wrote "PFR-97 SOIL DRENCH TREATMENT" then you select which crop and it logs it accordingly. You can review in feedings and then can at least track other treatments.

  • Hi Bagogdoughnuts,

    Thanks for writing in. We are glad you are enjoying our app! We have also been bouncing back and forth between google docs and the GB to run our gardens and would like to have it all in one place. Our goal is to create a "smart task" system that will make it easier for you to choose from preloaded tasks and schedule them in advance along with some other awesome features. We are still working out the final details on how we want to set up the IPM system but it might run alongside with the smart tasks. We hope to roll out several new commercial features updates over 2018. We really appreciate the feedback, please feel free to write into support@growbuddy.com to dive deeper into your thoughts on how you think these features would be best set up. 

    Cheers!

  • I would like to see some sort of "Task Notification" sent to my mobile.

    so when I add a task that needs to be done I get a notification up on the mobile to remind me what I need to do
