Maintenance notes
« on: August 04, 2019, 11:45:16 am »
We wanted to post a maintenance note on a cache log but couldn't see how to do it - the facility seems to have disappeared, or we are cracking up! Anyone got any ideas?

You're right. I hadn't spotted that!

I assume you can do it via the 'Report a problem' option on the bottom right?

I won't test it myself in case I accidentally log a NM!  :D

A Needs Maintenance on a cache you've found, or Owners Maintenance on one of yours?
And how, phone -which app, or website?

Phone logs seem to 'include' Needs Maintenance with your Found It log, as an additional log...

We were trying to do a 'needs maintenance' on a cache we found - on the geocache website - but on the drop down menu where you 'log it' there is no 'needs maintenance' option. I'm sure that is where it used to be.

Ah-ha.

Notice the "Logging has a new look"

The 'new' way to log Needs Maintenance is:
Go to log the cache, under the logging part there is ! Report a problem
Im not sure if you have to add another type of log - Found, Note, DNF... ?
But, a Found it log, and Report a problem -Needs Maintenance- will post both logs.

If you want the old style logging, click on Opt Out, top right of the page.

Thanks B&R and Griff Grof - this must be the new way!
I do wish they wouldn't change things - our poor old brains can't cope with all this change in technology  :-[ :-[
