    I was thinking how nice it would be if Hive Tracks was compatible with a palletized operation. A little more diversity in hive components would be good. No other complaints, I love it! Thanks!

    Thanks for the response. As I mentioned we are planning a new and far more feature rich Hive Tracks. Larger operations are going to be part of the planning so palets are on the to-do list. In fact the whole subject of large scale management of colonies, equipment and tracking those things is on the plate for discussion. I will be sure to post back here as the close in on those features. Thanks again for using Hive Tracks!

    I wish there was a nuc box in the hive builder.

    I gave Hive Tracks a fair trial last year but got frustrated with the time it took to enter information (click around and wait for screens to load)(..and no interest in spending the money for smart phone with only 100 hives). It would be nice to have a sleek stripped down version were you can quickly enter information for a yard based on notes taken. Like a direct entry into the database that backs up the pretty front end.

    I am new to hivetracks, is there a means to transfer hives from one yard to another in the program? If so please share!

    Default Hive Tracks

    Its been a long time since I was here to talk about Hive Tracks. A lot's changed and its worthy of discussion. The site has been completely rebuilt from the ground up. It now supports nucs, top bar, inventory, a new "off the charts" hive editor, integrated calendar with reminders, true picture and video uploads, sharing and groups. For example, clubs can create a group for its members. The group has its own web page and web address accessible to the public (or keep it private to the group... your choice). Club members can add selected hives to the group then review photos, inspections and other hive data as a group at their meetings. Hive Tracks recently passed the 10,000 registered user mark with over 60,000 hives being managed. We're approaching "big data" status have stats available based on location. Amazing new functionality. Have a look www.hivetracks.com.

    What is the off the charts hive editor?

    I signed up and have been playing around all morning. One suggestion, when adding a hive and filling in queen info, how about another selection in the drop down, or even a user input box for when your queen type is not there? Specifically, my queen(s) are Minnesota Hygenic x open mated likely carni (maybe german). I could use MH or Carni so this is not a huge thing at all.

    Good call. We're working on a way for users to add queens but for now I would select Minnesota Hygienic as the queen type and then add more detail in the "Description" edit box. Does that seem reasonable for now?
