*Although we do our best to support all possible platform and browser permutations, we cannot guarantee support for all platform/browser combinations.
** Mobile Safari on iOS does not support push notificaitons or sound effects, however in-app notifications are supported.
*** Sound effects are not supported on Safari browsers. Mobile Safari on iOS does not support push notificaitons.


New Multi-Group Import 

Should you like, you can now create hundreds of new groups at once.

With an admin role, you can create multiple groups by uploading a CSV file that includes group IDs, Farm names, Farm IDs, and Creation dates. Then with just a few clicks your new groups are created and assigned to the correct farms.

To access the Multi-Group Import, click on the "Create Group" multi-select button on the "Groups" screen, and select "Import Groups." Then upload a CSV file and follow the onscreen instructions. When complete, you'll see a list of how your upload performed—all errors are highlighted for easy troubleshooting. 

You can download the Group Creation CSV template from the Multi Group Import screen, or by clicking here

Note: "Creation Date" and "Start Date" are two different concepts in EveryPig. The Creation Date refers to the date the group is created in the EveryPig system. Whereas, "Start Date" refers to the day the first load of pigs is received into a group.  

New Veterinarian Role

Now with an Admin Role, you can invite veterinarians to join your team on EveryPig.

To assign a veterinarian role, visit the Admin Panel. You'll find this role listed along with farm owner, caregiver, and manager roles. 

The Veterinarian role privileges: 

  1. User can diagnose pigs

  2. User can view and comment on Farmfeed events

  3. User can submit Daily Checkups

  4. All users with veterinarian roles receive a "Dr." before their name

Note: Users with Veterinarian roles do not have access to the admin and group panels.
