If you've used one of your products on the farm for your crops or your other production types, and you'd like to track this movement on Figured, then you'll need to Apply it in your product tracker.
That way, we can keep track of the costs which have contributed to your production.
Head into your product tracker by going to Operations > Trackers.
Once in there, click Add transaction > Add application.
You can only add an application for products you have on hand in your Product tracker.
When adding an application transaction, you'll need to enter the following information:
- Type (actual / forecast)
The ability to add it as an actual or forecast depends on your global date settings in the centre of your screen.
In the above screenshot, I can raise an actual application between June 2019 - January 2020, or a forecast from February 2020 onwards.
- Application date
This is an accrual or profit date, no cash date is required as applying a product doesn't have an impact on your bank accounts bottom line.
This can be any additional notes you want to record against an application.
- The item you're applying
This is a pre-defined list of products which includes things like herbicide or LPG, along with any other crops / products too like Hay or Linseed.
If you'd like to apply something not on this list, head to your Product tracker and add a new Product. Then you'll be able to add an application of this new product.
- The associated account (sales/purchase)
This is the Xero account which should be associated with the application of product.
The activity is where you define what this purchase is for in relation to your crop season.
An activity can be: preparation, seeding, growing, harvesting, or sales and storage.
- Quantity and price
The quantity of product that you're applying, this can be recorded as a total unit or unit / area e.g. tonnes / hectare.
Along with that, you'll enter a price which is $ / unit e.g. $ / kg. Filling in the quantity and price will auto-populate the total amount for you.
- Field distribution (optional)
Field distribution is how you nominate the fields you'll be applying
For example if you are growing Corn across two fields, North & South, and you wanted to apply fertiliser to North Field only, your distribution would be 100% North Field.
When an application is made directly within a product tracker, you can choose to apply it to fields / crop seasons immediately if you'd like to.
But if the product wasn't applied to those, then you can skip distribution.
