Find entries on the Calendar or List

You can narrow the display in the Diary so that you see only the dates and entries you are interested in.

  • When you select a filter on the List or Calendar, it remains in place in both views until you change it, reset it or move away from the Diary. 
  • You can save filter settings on the Calendar or List views.
    • Once you have saved a filter it remains in place in both the Calendar and List views until you change, remove or reset it.
  • Activities recorded while your animals are away grazing will only be shown if they have been recorded by a FarmIQ farm.
