Every yard, whether large or small has various facilities where activities take place.
The definition of a facility is flexible. For example a facility could be a stable or stall, a walker, an office, gallops, grazing land, exercise pool or even just a space in the yard where something particular activities are done, and so on.
In Stable Manage it is possible (and optional) to associate a facility with each activity on your schedule by either:
- Setting a facility when adding a Schedule Entry or
- By setting a facility directly on an Entry record on the Schedule Screen.
When you first join Stable Manage, you will want to add your facilities. An example showing how to do this is detailed below. In the example we show how to add a paddock.
How do I add a Facility to Stable Manage?
Click the “action” (plus) menu icon:
Select Add Facility from the “What do you want to do?” dropdown:
Stable Manage displays the Add Facility form. This is a brief and simple form:
- Facility Type – required
- Name – required
- Description – optional
Select a Facility Type:
When you select the type of Facility, Stable Manage will automatically populate a suggested name for you but you can change this value to anything you like:
For the example I have changed the facility Name from “Grassed paddock” to “Central Grazing” and I have added a simple description. Name and Description can be edited after addition to Stable Manage.
Click SAVE to add the new facility to Stable Manage:
Stable Manage saves the new facility and displays a message:
Click on the main menu and select Facilities if it is not already selected:
There is a row for the newly added facility (Central Grazing):
Updating or Deleting a Facility
A Facility that has not been linked to any Schedule Entry can be deleted from the Facilities screen using the facility action menu:
Note that Stable Manage will display a warning if you attempt to delete a facility which is attached to a Schedule Entry and it will not be possible to proceed with the deletion.
By either clicking on the facility name (Central Grazing in the example) or on the Facility Details option in the menu shown above, you can access the Facility Details screen to change the facility Name or Description:
Using a Facility on a Schedule Entry
It is possible to assign a facility to a Schedule Entry on the Add Schedule Entry screen while adding the Schedule Entry (How do I add an Entry to my Schedule?):
It is possible to assign, remove or change a facility on an existing Schedule Entry directly on the Schedule screen:
