Version 2012.03.517 Now Available

February 10, 2012 - Farm Works Software® has released version 2012.03.517 of the Office and View software.  Customers of the Office software who are subscribed to the Update Service Plan (USP) will automatically receive these features by selecting “Check for Updates" located under the Help menu.  Another option is to use the download link: http://www.farmworks.com/support/downloads.php

Office software enhancements include:

  • Attach Invoices and Receipts to Transactions – Available in Accounting for attaching any number of files to each transaction. This can be used to attach scanned copies of source documents (such as invoices & check stubs). This feature also includes a "Create" button that allows you to create a text file with any amount of text (for long notes) that will be attached to the transaction. Attached files can be viewed by clicking on the Paperclip button in the Account register or in the Trial Balance details.
  • Equipment Efficiency Report – Available in Mapping or Accounting for listing equipment details for each job including the acres/hectares worked, hours worked, and yield.  It then computes efficiency based on the acres/hectares per hour and the yield per hour.  The report can be grouped either by field, equipment, or personnel and is intended as a way to evaluate the efficiency of equipment and personnel.  The report can be printed or exported as a .csv file.
  • Support for Exporting VRA Maps to Muller Controllers – Available in Mapping the "Write Job Data" box now offers an export option for Muller Controllers.
  • Boundary Editing Includes Split Tool – Available in Mapping when you are editing a field boundary, the program will now give you the Split tools which can be used to split the field into different sections.
  • Support for CNH Boundaries, Guidance, and Obstacle Maps — Available in Mapping for reading Case IH and New Holland data. When one of these options is selected, the software will read in boundary, guidance, and obstacle maps collected with a Pro 600 or Pro 700 display. This same data will export back to the display via Write Job Data.


View software enhancements include:

  • Create Inputs (People, Equipment, and Supplies) - Capability to set up people, equipment, and supplies (which work with Read & Write Job data with supported precision ag devices).
  • Print Job Summary Report - This report gives job details including dates/times worked, product usage, equipment usage, labor usage and field and weather conditions.
  • Layer Animation Tool - A tool for painting a map on the screen in the order that it was created. The feature includes a drop-down list where you can speed up or slowdown the playback. This feature is useful for displaying maps such as spray, planting and harvest maps. This makes it possible to review the order and direction that a field was farmed.
  • Support for CNH Boundaries, Guidance, and Obstacle Maps — Available for reading Case IH and New Holland data. When one of these options is selected, the software will read in boundary, guidance, and obstacle maps collected with a Pro 600 or Pro 700 display. This same data will export back to the display via Write Job Data.

The View upgrade is for customers who are using the Farm Works View software only. Customers must use the download link to install these features: http://www.farmworks.com/support/downloads.php

Warning:  Do not install View if you have already installed the Farm Works office software (Mapping, Accounting, Stock, or Surface).  View is a complimentary download for those wanting to only view and print maps of precision ag data.  View can easily be upgraded to the Farm Works office software without losing any previously entered data.  The Farm Works office software provides many additional features for analyzing maps and printing job reports.
