    Thumbs Up Re: Official Launch of Hive Tracks

    I love it!! It’s the kind of program I have wanted since I started beekeeping. It is easy to use, intuitive and full of great visual aids. Bravo well done, I can’t believe you are giving it away. Would I pay for it? You Bet!

    Sorry for the trouble. I'm not sure this particular issue is due to the browser you are using. I'm looking at the logs and see no errors today... did you try this today or was it a few days ago? Lets take this maintainance issue off this thread and into support. Please send your response to support@hivetracks.com. I have a few questions so if you like send an e-mail to me with a phone number and I will call you and see if we can find the problem. If you don't want to do that (and I understand if you don't) then all I can do is plow the logs.

    Hi Mac. I'm just guessing here but I think I see an issue with the date control. Try typing a date but you don't have to type the slash /. Make sure you have it typed correctly before continuing. Or dismiss the dialog and try selecting a date from the drop down. I have issues with the date control that I WILL address as soon as the EAS event I'm attending this week is over. I just don't have the bandwidth for coding right now but I want to get you to the point of at least creating your hives. I must adimit I have not done any testing on a Mac. I have tested with Firefox on PC not not Mac. I will do some testing this week on an IPad (my partner is bringing to the EAS event) and maybe I will gain some insight if this problem persists. Again, please respond to support@hivetracks.com

    Mark,

    First, thank you for all your work on Hive Tracks and all of the code and debugging you are doing.

    I read the Hive Tracks blog of several screens a few days ago and several and made notes, but did not respond. Now I have read nine screens just to catch up.

    Many of my notes now have been mentioned but I support the inclusion in the program of places to note: hive weight, pollen traps, propolis traps, bee escapes/type, and upper and/or lower entrances.

    I think that your program will be much used and appreciated by the beekeeping community.

    Thank You,
    Bear Creek Steve

    Just created an account and added 3 yards (no hives). While I like the ease of use I am not happy with the GPS coords using zip code.

    Could you add zip + 4 and generate accurate codes. This would probably help with weather input. My furtherst yard is 12 miles away. Using zip code only for GPS really doesn't give me accurate information. For instance, the furtherest yard (12 miles away) has the same City as my yard at my house. But it actually is closer to several other towns. One of which is in a different county. The difference in rain between these 2 yards and the fauna is significant.

    I would second Ken's comment. My distant yard is in a high mountain meadow with blooming clover as far as the eye can see. I do have GPS coordinates, but zip code is meaningless.

    The lat/lon we provide is just a rough estimate. You can overwrite it with whatever cooredinates you like for either a yard or individual hives. The only thing to note is the text area where you enter lat/lon is a little tricky. It has an edit mask which is not the best in the world. I'm going to try and improve it over time.

    I agree that would be nice. Also, perhaps a TBH feature? I definitely think the program is great and really is a good tool for beeks.

    You have replied to many questions but completely ignored any suggestions or requests for information about inclusion of alternative hive types such as tbh's.

    Could you please just let us know if they will be added/supported or not in the future?

    If not, I can then go about canceling my account and forgetting about this software.

    If so, then I might consider sticking with it to see it develop and be of use to myself and many others who like me, primarily use top bar hives.

    We simply want information.

    Does the site track cost/income? I am trying to compare cost of feed,medication, frames etc. with honey revenue.

    We don't track costs/income at this time. I would imagine our best option here would be to export data that some accounting packages could then import.

    Very nice job. Thankyou for putting this out there. I signed up today and put in 6 yards. Finally some software I can use and understand. This will help me tremendously.

    Oh yea, are you going to have an Iphone app? I would pay for it. Thanks.

    Mark,
    I am getting aggravated with my Beetight account, it switches the languages all the time so it takes me double or triple as long to put down a few inspections, is there any way to export my inspections from Beetight to Hive Tracks? Thanks.
