Leveraging Comments


The HiveManager Standard version provides a simple way to capture, analyze and share beekeeping information to improve results. 

Rather than requiring structured data inputs, we opted for a simple way to capture incremental data about your apiaries: Comments.

Comments gives you the flexibility to capture data any way you want, using terms you and your team are comfortable with. The Dashboard helps you quickly filter Comments using any combination of words, numbers, tags and timeframes. 

You can enhance comments using standardized terms or tags to describe an action or attribute. Add a descriptor or number after the tag to provide additional information.

For example, you can use the tag "#Hives" and add a a number after it to describe the number of hives at the apiary. Using the dashboard, you can filter apiaries by "#Hives 10, #Hives 11, #Hives 12, #Hives 13, #Hives 14, #Hives 15" within the last week to see the apiaries with 10-15 hives.

Use Cases

To get the most out of the application, we recommend that you have a plan for how you intend to leverage these comments within your operations before you start. To help, we have developed the following use case overviews from discussions with beekeepers currently using the application.

Monitor apiary activity and tasks that have been completed

Define tasks that need to be completed at apiaries 

Track apiary attributes that drive activities and improve decision making
