New field events should only be added to Field Story if the field event type does not exist for the crop year you are editing. If the field event type does exist as a “Rooster” default event, then the field event should be edited. If you would like to learn more about editing existing events, visit “Changing the crop type on a field in Field Story.”
If you have checked the current years “Field Story: Timeline” and do not see an event to edit, you will have to add a new event in Field Story.
Step 1. Select the “Add New Event” button above the Field Story timeline or select the “Add New Event” button within the crop year you are editing (Figure 1). Each button performs the same exact function. After selecting “Add New Event,” a new window will appear in the center of your screen.
Step 2. Select the type of event that you want to add (Figure 2). For this example, a tillage event will be added. Click on the "Tillage" icon.
Step 3. Select the date of the tillage event on the calendar (Figure 4). Use the arrows at the top of the calendar to change months and years. Select “Next.”
Step 4. Select the tillage type. Continue to enter in information for the tillage event as you are automatically taken through the steps. Select “Save.” You will be unable to select save until you have completed the required steps for the tillage event.
Step 5. After you create a new field event, you can see the Tillage event has been added to the Field Story timeline (Figure 5). Regardless of the field event type (Planting, Fertilization, Harvest completion, etc.), adding a new event in Field Story is the same process.
