Using Your Schedule to Keep Track of Events

How to Use the Schedule to Set Calendar Events

We know that it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of special events or upcoming appointments for your business. Was the vet coming by Thursday or Friday? What time is the farmer's market supposed to start?  When are you scheduled to make this weeks CSA delivery? Farmbrite has a solution that will help you stay organized - while the Schedule may look like a simple calendar at first glance, it has many unique selections and abilities that can help you organize your work and manage your business operations.  

Creating a Calendar Event

To create a new event, click New Event in the upper left of your Calendar. 

A new window will be displayed; use it to supply information about this new event. In the example below we're creating a calendar reminder for a farmers market booth we're setting up for a local festival. 

You'll be able to provide many details for this event, but note that only a title and date/time are required - all other fields are optional.

If the activity occurs for the full day, use the All Day Checkbox to note that - the activity will be displayed on the header of  your calendar. 


You're able to provide a description of the event for your to reference later, and  associate an equipment resource, animal, or growing location with the event. Use the associate ability if the event is pertinent to something specific around your farm. You can also customize this event by selecting what color you'd like it to be displayed as on your calendar. This can help you distinguish certain events at a glace; perhaps you might make livestock events blue, and garden events green. 

You can also set the event to repeat as a series of events on your calendar - our farmers market event recurs weekly during the summer. Note that there is a limit of 100 Daily recurring events that you can create. 

Once you've supplied your event information, be sure to click Create to add it to your schedule. 

As always, be aware that if you delete events they are not able to be recovered.

Editing an Event

If you need to edit and event, just click on it and a new window will pop up giving you details about it. You can click edit in the bottom right to make changes if needed. Also, check out this article about creating repeating events, and how you can edit them as well. 

Adding Tasks to Your Schedule

You'll also find an option to add Tasks to your Farmbrite schedule. A task is similar to an event, but you'll have additional fields to track time spent, add map locations, and create sub-tasks in a checklist. You can read all about creating tasks in this help article for a full walkthrough. Overall, it's up to you if you'd like to use events, tasks, or a combination of both on your Schedule.
