How is the Turnover Rate calculated?
IF YOU ARE FARMING IN TEXAS: The turnover is calculated based on Any/All Transfers in the area over the past 12 months versus the total number of homes in the area selected. Turnover Rate does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
Example calculation: An area selected with 100 homes, had 10 properties with transfers last year.  The turnover rate is 10%.

ALL OTHER STATES: The turnover rate is calculated based on the number of Full Transfers in the area over the last 12 months versus total number of homes in the area selected. Does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
Example calculation: An area selected with 100 homes, had 5 properties with full transfers last year.  The turnover rate is 5%.

How do I update the Farm Data?
Walking Farm is designed for a user to pull an area, walk a farm, and make notations to the property (updating the property details for one’s own use).  For this reason, farm data is only pulled at the time it is created and do not update.  “Updating” a farm would overwrite the work the user has done on managing the details of property within a farm.

Farm map will not go to an address / Remains at my location.
Maps on Farming are not designed to go to a specific location/address, but instead to farm a general area. The map will always load based on your location first. Refer to the details below to locate another area on the map to begin your farm search:

Android: Enter city/state or zip code to locate that general area on the map. Pan/zoom until you locate your precise area to draw your farm shape.

Apple: you may enter a specific address or intersection, and the map will locate that general area on the map. Pan/zoom until you locate your precise area to draw your farm shape.

What are Farm Credits?
This is the number of properties in the area you have created.

I have more than 500 farm credits. Why does it keep telling I can’t pull a report more than 500?
You may pull a maximum of 500 properties in a report. You may pull multiple reports until you reach your credit limit.

I created a Farm on one device, but am not seeing it on my other device.
The application does not sync across devices. So for example, if you created the report on your tablet and then opened the application on your phone, you would have access to the farm you saved on your tablet.

What is the max report size / number of properties?
You may pull a maximum of 500 properties in a report. You can create an area larger than 500 properties, but would need to define it to a smaller report size using filters.

How many farm reports can I save?
There is no limit to the number of reports you can save in the application.

Do farm reports expire?
Farm Reports do not expire.

I created a path for my “Walking Farm” but it seems to have missed some of the properties.
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.
