SprayLogger 2019 Improvements

Introducing the 2019 SprayLogger E3B

The 2018 SprayLogger E3B was a giant leap in technology for the spray application industry. AgTerra has continued this innovation by listening to our customers and implementing improvements that make our latest box even easier to use. See what’s new in the 2019 SprayLogger E3B:

      • Increased fault tolerance to electrical spikes up to 48 volts
      • Vehicle direct power capable (no need for a power inverter)
      • Power out boom ports for manual shutoff valves and handgun spraying
      • Metered flow ports for micro-injection tanks
      • Ad hoc tank mix creation by applicators from the app
      • Multi-tank volume countdown or count-up in app
      • Application volume adjustment from the app

With these new enhancements, installation of a new SprayLogger E3B is easier than ever. Applicators will also be excited to learn they can now switch between counting up or counting down chemical usage, that they can create custom tank mixes in-app, and that they can even add volume adjustments to their reports. All of these improvements have been made at the suggestions of the men and women who use AgTerra products.

Keep Your Cloud Clean

Have you noticed a project running slower than normal? Does it take a long time to sync your device with the website? If your Internet browser or device seems to be bogged down by a single project, it may be time to rethink your project management.

Below are two common problems users face with large datasets and our suggested solutions.

My MapItFast project is slow on the website.

POSSIBLE CAUSES: There several factors that can cause a project to slow down the website. First, the limit for map objects in a project is 5,000 points, lines, or polygons. If this limit is reached, you will receive a warning message in MapItFast and browser performance and responsiveness will be affected.

You do not always have to reach the 5,000-object limit to see decreased performance in a project. Map objects that are data-intensive can cause a project to reach its threshold before the object limit is reached. For example, lines and polygons are made of multiple points called vertices. When these are drawn using GPS, they have more vertices. A project with lines and/or polygons that contain a total number of vertices exceeding 100,000 can also cause a project to slow down.

Another possible cause of project slow-down on the website is the addition of a large number of form photos, geo-photos, and/or signature images. Forms with minimal photos and signatures will not typically increase the size of a project enough to slow it down.

SOLUTION: The best way to prevent slow-down of MapItFast projects is to split existing projects into smaller, more manageable projects or set up new projects so that smaller amounts of data are being saved in each one. Some examples of different ways to organize projects would be by month, by user, by customer, or by region.

My data is not reaching the website or syncing from the device is slow.

POSSIBLE CAUSES: One possible cause of data not reaching the website is a large amount of un-synced data.

SOLUTION: If you have a large amount of un-synced data it could take more than the typical 15 minutes to sync with the server. To prevent this problem from happening in the future, it is a good idea to make sure that you allow your device to sync any new MapItFast data at least every few days of data collection, ideally every day.

By setting up manageable projects and regularly syncing map data, you will ensure a more seamless experience for all users in the system. When you get to the end of the season and want to see the “big picture,” our export tool allows you to export both shapefiles and KMZ files for additional analysis and viewing of large datasets in third party GIS software.

Strider FAQs

AgTerra is committed to making a product that’s functional and easy to use. Sometimes, however, customers come to us with a question that they just can’t figure out on their own. Below are some common questions about Strider for mobile and desktop.

Upload errors can occur for a variety of reasons. If you receive a popup message window, be sure to scroll to the bottom for a better description of the problem. In most cases, you can track down and fix the issue in your Excel file using the information provided by the error message. You can read more about upload errors here in the online help guide.

Remember! You will need to use the user resources password provided by AgTerra to access the help pages.

If you are still unable to determine the cause of the error message, you may contact AgTerra for help.

Users cannot see a form until they have been added to a group and the group has permission to view the form. Strider permissions work independently from MapItFast, so even if a user is part of a MapItFast group, they will need to be part of a group in Strider as well. The steps for setting up user form permissions are outlined here in the online help guide.

Remember! You will need to use the user resources password provided by AgTerra to access the help pages.

In order to use a form in MapItFast, you will need to enable it through the Strider website. To enable the form, go to the Form Management page and select “Edit” next to the form you want to enable. In the Edit page, change the form type to “MapItFast and Strider Form”.

Note – After a form has been enabled, you will need to wait 10-15 minutes or close and re-open the app before it will be available.

Yes, Strider forms can be used on Apple. Unlike the Android apps however, Strider is built into MapItFast. This means that while you do not need to install a secondary Strider app, you are currently limited to filling out forms through the MapItFast app.

Yes, Strider applies a unique number to each form record entered into the system, starting with the number one. The database field is called ‘_ID’ and the value can be found in the record details page and XLS export. The ID can also be added to reports as a unique identifier for each record.

Yes, you can change the order of columns by dragging and dropping them to a new spot on the page. If your form has a lot of columns, you may need to drag the column, drop it, scroll, then drag it some more to get it moved over. Keep in mind that these changes will only be applied to your current desktop browser, so the columns will not be in the same place if you open Strider on another computer.
