I hear you on this. I only started this year but with 4 hives it took me a full night to capture all my previous data from notes of first two months. I would suggest just picking a point and work from there. Ie add the date that you last queened the hive. Location I pulled from Google maps. I have no issue with it published. Of course I am also a computer kinda guy, an engineer too so data is important and my wife says I am anally retentive. Color changes with hive health. Just slide the bar. I have been able to use the iPad as well , so am able to take it with me to the hives. Need to use in portrait mode though. I will start a new thread and show how I use it if anyone interested. ?? I also chose to name my hives rather than number them.
