We have been pretty quiet for the last few months, while we’ve gone through a location change and have worked on some major “under the hood” functionality required for the new features being developed!
Updates to Stable Manage
This morning’s release includes three things:
- A new feature called “Reminders”, which allows users to set reminders for any entry on their schedule.
- Improved Horse Weight Report, where users can now select a date range over which to view the progression of a horse’s weight.
- Improved Horse Details, where users can now see the date that a horse was added to Stable Manage, in addition to its foaling year or date.
This simply presented but powerful feature allows up to three reminders to be set for any schedule entry. The schedule entry can be any type and it can be a once off entry or one that repeats. If the entry repeats, then the reminder(s) will be triggered every time a repetition of the entry approaches.
To see an overview and a step by step guide for creating, editing and removing Reminders, please refer to this article on our website: Reminders Overview.
Some simple examples of how Reminders could be used:
- Set a Reminder for a once a month farrier schedule entry, to ensure that you have the right horses ready in time.
- Set multiple Reminders before an important meeting or yard visit.
- Set Reminders for each riding lesson or training session to ensure that staff, helpers and horses are in the right place at the right time.
- Create a “Health Check” schedule entry with notes describing what should be checked and add a Reminder to it. When the Reminder is received, the Staff member can see from the notes what they need to do and record for the Health Check; e.g. check temperature, examine hooves, take stool sample etc.
- Create a schedule entry of type “Other” within “Professional Visit” category. Allocate a Horse to it and notes reminding the assigned member of staff to call the breeder to discuss some aspect of the horse’s development.
- .. and so on, the combinations are endless!
