Can someone help me step by step learn to post a growers report? I see some people have posted growers reports and it could be a very handy tool. I have searched and searched and simply can not figure how to post my own *Blush*

Go to your plant list and find the plant you want to post a report for. On the right side of each plant are some symbols (pad and pencil, calendar, trash can), click on the calendar, fill out the information, then click on "add the event to this plant".

Another way is to go to the plant's entry in the database and you'll see a link on that page to "File a growers report." Click that and it'll walk you through the steps.

I find this to be the quickest way, so I use it most often. Thumbs up

Neither did I. I'll have to give that a try.

Personally, I find Dave's above method the most handy when I'm both adding a plant to my list, and filing a report at the same time.

Because my records are never as complete as I wish they were, I'm often filing multiple reports at once, and it is faster to do them from my list that way. But adding a new plant saves me steps to start from the database.

I'm all about efficiency, you know! Whistling
