If you want to start working with the application as a registered user, click on one of the social media buttons (Google, Facebook or Twitter). If you choose to log in with Google, the Google login window will appear, to log in to FARMapper you need to log in to Google first. If you choose to log in using Facebook or Twitter and you are already logged in to Facebook or Twitter, you will immediately go to the application. If you are not logged in you will see a login window for Facebook or Twitter and after logging in you will go to the application as a registered user figure 2.

If you have created an account on social networks without using an email address then if you log in to the FARMapper application using these accounts, we will not get information about your email address. Then you will see a message in which we will explain to you the missing contact information and we will ask you for your e-mail address figure 4. Make sure that the e-mail address provided is correct because you will receive a message to the address you provided with a link confirming your email address. This allows FARMapper to send periodic email about new features and updates and it allows registered FARMapper users to contact via a listing inquiry. This enables the creation of a listing (for example Hay for Sale) where the email address of the creator is not published, and other registered users can contact the listing creator through the service.

If you still do not see the message from us, check the contents of the SPAM folder.

Merging accounts

Do you use several accounts in the FARMapper application? Would you like to merge these accounts into one? Nothing easier. The tool for merging accounts can be found in the "Settings menu" find "Merge with another account" and select the login method appropriate for the second account you want to join to the current one figure 6. After logging in to it both accounts will be merged. It is not possible to disconnect accounts. After the merger, the new account will have access to projects from both merged accounts. If the merged accounts had different subscription plans before merging, both accounts will have the same plan and it will be the plan that was higher. After merging the accounts, the bonuses from both accounts will also be added, however, the number of bonuses will not be higher than the limit for each type of bonus.
