January 4, 2022

When you verified your EarthScout serial number matches, the one on your app, you can rename and personalize your EarthScout by tapping on the Settings Cog in the upper right corner. In settings, tap on default name Anderson dash zero one in the top box on your screen.

A pop up will appear. Change the name to a name of your choice. Tip, name your EarthScout based on the field or location you intend to place it, such as Anderson’s Backfield 003. Each of the sensors on your EarthScout also have default names assigned to them, rename them by tapping the sensors button on the bottom left of your screen. Here’s a list of sensors on this EarthScout. For this demo we have two soil sensors. We will place soil sensor one at a ten to twelve inch depth. So let’s change the name to reflect this.

Then tap done. We also change the name of the second soil sensor to soil sensor four to six inch depth. Once you have renamed your sensors, you can also hide or make visible sensors you are not currently using from your dashboard by tapping the visible toggle to the off position. Then tap the Visit user profile to Change Visibility Settings Link. In the user profile move, the display button from all to visible only. This will hide any sensors that are not currently in use from the dashboard.

Note, the solar sensor is now hidden on the dashboard.
