Once you start using Farm Focus you will notice the benefits of it being available anytime and on any device. Being cloud-based means that the application is available on a web browser, so it can be open over multiple tabs in your browser, or on many different browsers at the same time.

Below are some recommendations to help you optimise your office processes:

Which Browser do I use?

We recommend using Chrome as the best browser for Farm Focus. You can also use Safari, Microsoft Edge and Firefox. You will need the latest version of the browser.

How can I adjust the Zoom or Colour contrast to meet my preferences?

When using Farm Focus on your computer you should see the full screen as you can in the picture below. If you only see a portion of the information on the screen, you might have your Zoom preferences set differently.

You can find out ways to adjust your screen settings for brightness and contrast here:

To adjust the Zoom for a Safari browser:

To adjust the Zoom for most other browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox) click on the 3 dots in the top right-hand corner and select the Zoom option. Use the +/- to increase or decrease the size of your webpage.

** Firefox browsers will show 3 lines instead of 3 dots, but located in the same place.

Duplicate your browser

Right-click on your browser tab and select Duplicate from the list to duplicate your browser tabs. This way you can have multiple browsers open to have different areas of Farm Focus open at the same time, or multiple databases open at the same time.

Use 2 screens or 2 devices

It is an ideal office set up to have two screens. This way, you can have your emails open on one screen, and your Farm Focus open on another or have two browsers open with Farm Focus in different areas i.e. you could be coding your Actuals at the same time as viewing your Cashflow or Reports.

Have your iPad or iPhone next to you with the Help Centre open so that you can watch the tutorials to learn about the features in Farm Focus while you work.

Recommended Farm Code list

When you buy Farm Focus you will receive a Dairy or Sheep and Beef code list. These code lists are considered best practice and can still be customised for your farming needs. Find out more here.

For existing Farm Focus users, undertaking a 'health check' of your current farm codes can be beneficial. You can refer to our recommended Farm code list available on our 7-day Demo. To learn how to access and download the 7-day demo, please follow the instructions provided

Access Farm Focus straight from your Desktop

For easy access, it's useful to create a shortcut for the Farm Focus login screen on your computer. This way, you can log into your database with just one click. Learn how to set up a shortcut to Farm Focus.
