How long will it take to upload
The amount of time to upload a file will vary depending on a number
of factors; size of file, file type, type of PC, internet provider,
or internet connection quality and speed to name a few. Despite
those factors, the upload time per file generally takes less than
10 minutes. Note that the upload itself is a onetime event. Once
uploaded to your account, you can use all the tools on that field

How do I select a yield monitor
file to upload?
Once you subscribe you can go to the My Files page and click on
the "Upload File" button to browse your PC for the file
you want to upload. Once selected, simply then click on the "Upload
File" button to start the process. After the upload is complete,
you will be asked to verify the grain type and then asked to give
the file a name meaningful to you (e.g. South 40).
Can I upload yield monitor
files from prior years?
Yes, but HarvestMap policy is to reject any yield monitor files
with harvest years prior to 2001. HarvestMap wishes to keep it's
Community View data base as current as possible to provide the
most current information possible to all subscribers.
If I started the upload but it
did not complete, and the file cannot be located in the Field
List, what should I do?
Simply start the upload over.
I started the upload but I did not complete error correction?
If you lost your internet connection after the upload and during
the error correction process, you can pick up where you left off
by first going to the My Fields page. It is here that you will
see the list of all files uploaded. Any file uploaded that does
not have the error correction complete will have a color code
flag indicating this status. Simply locate the file that you wish
to continue with and click on the file name. It will automatically
start where it left off in the error correction process and lead
you through it.
