Most logs in farmOS have the ability to record structured quantity measurements alongside other details. These can be used to collect data about your farm activities in an organized way, which can be analyzed later to provide insights.
Quantity measurements can be added via the "Quantity" field on logs. More than one quantity measurement can be added to a single log.
The "Quantity" field consists of four optional sub-fields:
- Measure - What type of measurement is this? Eg: Weight, Volume, Count, Temperature, etc.
- Value - The measurement value (a number).
- Units - The unit of measure. This can be anything you like, but it's always good to keep your units consistent, as much as possible, for later analysis.
- Label - Labels are just a text field that allow you to add an additional note to the quantity measurement. This is helpful if you have multiple quantities of the same measure.
