The good news is, its really easy to fix — just follow these steps!

Sharing Files & Reports

Apple


Look for this “Share” icon on your Apple device. Selecting this option will let you email files & reports or store them to Dropbox.

Android

Look for this “Share” icon on your Android device. Selecting this option will let you email files, or open/share them in another program on your device.

To email Property Profiles, select the “Email Report” option from the report menu, as shown below:

Android: Walking Farm®

Step 1: Create an Area to Farm

  1. Change how you wish to view the map: Standard, Satellite, or Hybrid:
  2. Locate an area on the map you wish to farm
    Drag your finger on the map to move the map, pinch in/out to zoom in/out
    Or, search by city/state/zip using the search bar at the top of the screen
  3. Select Draw
    Tap to drop connecting points on the map around your farm area
    Close your shape by clicking on the first point
    Select Done
  4. To apply filter criteria, select Filters
    When you are done applying filters select “map” to return to the map screen.
  5. Select Get Report Count from the bottom navigation
    You will receive the property count, and turnover rate
    The turnover rate is calculated based on full transfers over the past 12 months in the area you defined. Turnover rate does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
    The maximum report size is 500 properties. If you area contains more properties, refine using filters, or create a new shape.

Step 2: Designate a Walk Order

  1. From the report options screen, select Walking Farm®
  2. Select the Map Icon in the upper-right corner
  3. Default view is Owner Occupied status, or toggle between Lead Status
  4. Select Draw Walk Order
  5. Drag your finger on the map across the pins to draw the order you wish to walk the neighborhood
    • TIP: Draw your line ON the house pins for best results
      If your farm is missing properties when you sort, it is possible that the line you drew missed some of the properties.  This is common when a user is trying to sort a very large farm (a hundred to several hundred properties) – the line does need to be drawn quite close to the map pins, and in a very crowded map this can be difficult to do.  A “best use case” for Walking Farm® is to sort a list of properties you plan to walk that day.  This allows you to “zoom in” on the map to a smaller area, and draw a more concise line.
    • Select Done to apply the walk order
    • Select the first pin in your order, and tap the address flag to begin walking
    • Or, tap the Back button on your device to return to the list view, and select the first property

      An area for notes which auto-save on entry
      Request a Property Profile report

Camera View is Not Working on My Device

Camera View is not working but I can locate the property with Map View

The “Camera View” feature uses a different type of technology than the map GPS.  In addition to using latitude, longitude (utilized by map GPS), Camera View also uses a compass heading on your device  in conjunction with “property Geocoding data” to determine the property you are facing.
So, while your map may be accurate, the Camera View feature is reliant on your device’s compass heading accuracy as well as Geocoding technology.
Here are a few things to do to make sure your device is compatible and gets accurate results:

Android Users

  1. Check that your device is a supported model
  2. Calibrate your compass
  3. Enable Location Services for your Device
    Device Settings > Location Access > Access to My Location (on)
    Also make sure you have all location sources checked to help improve accuracy
  4. Are you attempting to use Camera View from inside your vehicle? Inside a building? This may affect your device’s compass heading. Recommended to use the feature outside, clear of interference.
  5. Open a support ticket
    If you experience an unexpected result, the following details will help us troubleshoot. Email support@redshedtech.com with the following info*
    1) A Screenshot of the Camera View detail screen:   Hit the “i” button in the lower left (this brings up compass and heading information)
    2) Address of the property you attempted to identify
    3) Approximate date/time of search
    *Providing the 3 details noted here is critical to troubleshooting.

 

Apple Users

Devices supported are iPhones and iPads that are 3G/4G enabled. If your iPad is not enabled with cellular network service, it is not compatible with the Camera View feature.

  1. Make sure Location Services are Enabled for your device, and the application you are attempting to use
  2. Are you attempting to use Camera View from inside your vehicle? Inside a building? This may affect your device’s compass heading. Recommended to use the feature outside, clear of interference.
  3. Open a support ticket
    If you experience an unexpected result, the following details will help us troubleshoot. Email support@redshedtech.com with the following info*
    1) A Screenshot of the Camera View detail screen:   Hit the “i” button in the lower left (this brings up compass and heading information)
    2) Address of the property you attempted to identify
    3) Approximate date/time of search
    *Providing the 3 details noted here is critical to troubleshooting.

Android: Camera View – Check if Your Device is Supported

The Camera View feature relies on an accurate “Compass Heading” on your device (in addition to GPS Data).  Not all devices are equipped with a compass.  To check if your device is supported:

  1. Go to http://www.gsmarena.com
    -Search your phone model in the upper right
    -Under Features > Sensors  check if it has a compass
    -In Features > GPS make sure it says Yes)
  2. If your device does have the Compass and GPS as noted above, it may be interference with objects such as vehicles, buildings, etc. affecting your ability to get an accurate heading. Recommended to use the feature outside, clear of interference.
  3. Make sure Location Services are on for your device
    Device Settings > Location Access > Access to My Location (on)
    Also make sure you have all location sources checked to help improve accuracy

Android: Camera View Shutter Button is Always Red / Never Turns Green

Why does Map View work if Camera View does not?

The “Camera View” feature uses a different type of technology than the map GPS.  In addition to using latitude, longitude (utilized by map GPS), Camera View also uses a compass heading on your device  in conjunction with “property Geocoding data” to determine the property you are facing.
So, while your map may be accurate, the Camera View feature is reliant on your device’s compass heading accuracy as well as Geocoding technology.

 

Android: Why is the shutter button always red / does not turn green?

The shutter button is red when the application is trying to find the compass heading (as described above). Not all devices are equipped with a compass. To check if your device is supported, click here.

 

If you have checked everything above and it seems like your device, settings, etc. should be compatible with Camera View, here are a few other things to try:

  1. Android Compass Calibration may improve accuracy
  2. Opt for the Use my Location search if Camera View fails
  3. Open a support ticket
    If you experience an unexpected result, the following details will help us troubleshoot. Email support@redshedtech.com with the following info*
    1) A Screenshot of the Camera View detail screen:   Hit the “i” button in the lower left (this brings up compass and heading information)
    2) Address of the property you attempted to identify
    3) Approximate date/time of search
    *Providing the details noted here is critical to troubleshooting.

Android: Compass Calibration

If you are searching by “Use my Location” or “Camera View” and having trouble locating the property, you may need to calibrate your compass to achieve more accurate results.

Download one of the apps below and follow the instructions. You should re-Calibrate your compass periodically so it maintains an accurate heading.
