How to add and use times for Tasks

Once 'Keep track of task times' is enabled (see below) you can view and edit a task's Planned Minutes and Actual Minutes.

* 'Keep track of task times' is disabled by default

' Planned Minutes' estimates the number of minutes a would task.

' Actual Minutes' is the total number of minutes the task took.

To enable time tracking for your Account:

  1. You need to be logged in as the Account owner to enable time tracking
  2. Go to the initials dropdown 
  3. Click on 'Farm Details'
  4. Select the 'Keep track of Task, Harvest & Pack times?' toggle
  5. Click 'Save'

To add Planned Minutes to your Crop Tasks:

  1. Select the 'More' ... dropdown in the navbar at the top of the screen and click 'Crop Tasks'
  2. Click on the Crop Task you would like to add the time to.
  3. Enter  'Min. / 100 bed ft.'.  This is the average number of minutes it takes to do the task per 100 bed feet.
  4. Click 'Save'
  5. VeggieCropper will use this to calculate the Planned Minutes for each associated Task.

How to record Actual Minutes:

Actual Minutes can be recorded for each individual Task: 

  1. Go to Tasks - Current or All
  2. Find the Task that you would like to record a time for
  3. Click on the ... More icon at the far right of the row
  4. Complete the 'Actual Minutes' field
  5. Click 'Save'


Planned & Actual Minutes can also be seen when clicking the Calculator icon within the Tasks or Harvests lists. The Calculator will give you the average and total minutes across the filtered tasks. These can be really helpful for seeing how much is on the plate for the day, week or even across your whole Season.
