Interrupted access to Stockbook® and Stockhand®
Stockbook® and Stockhand® can operate on a stand-alone basis or linked to a web-based database which is called Stockbook Agrisphere®. You may be using this feature to collect or share data across multiple locations or users. To initiate this process, you will regularly be ‘Sync-ing’ or synchronising data between devices or sites.
The server that stores your data is located at our Armidale head office. Essential Energy have advised that there will be a scheduled power outage for maintenance purposes at our location on Sunday, 18th October 2020 between 8 am and 1 pm (Australian Eastern Daylight Time – AEDT).
This means you will be unable to synchronise Stockbook® or Stockhand® data during this period. Data that is entered into a device during the above time period will stay in the local device and can be sync-ed after the maintenance period is over.
If you are entering new data on your local device – smartphone or PC – during this period, we recommend, as an added precaution, that upon completion of the data collection you back up your data locally. This data could then be restored later in the event a new synchronisation connection cannot be established. Please contact our Support desk on 1800 624 688 if this happens and before restoring any data.
Please find the below links which could assist you in how to backup during the outage period.
