If you're harvesting cherries, you'll want to use our Cherry module instead. Check out our article on using the Cherry module on an iPad here.

Before You Get Started, have you built your team? 
You'll need to build your team to be able to allocate pickers to the bin. Here's a handy help article if you need some tips on building teams. Building Your Team on iPad

Assigning Pickers and Creating Bin Records 

Using the Hectre picking module, you can create and print bin tickets that contain all the information about the bin's location, variety, piece rate, and the pickers who contributed to the bin. 

Step 1

Head to the Picking module on your Hectre app just like this:

  • Click the menu button
  • Select Picking

Step 2 

  • Click Create a new bin

If you need to enter a bin for a previous day, click Today’s bins at the top of the page and choose the desired date from the calendar.
Step 3

  • Click the boxes in the top right to start entering the details for this bin. 

Step 4

You can add the Orchard, the Block and other information about the location the fruit is being picked from.
Select your Variety and Rates too. And you can also select Quality options, which # Pick you're doing, the Export country the fruit is for and any Treatments.

You don't have to enter it all.  Orchard, Variety, Rates, Quality and Pick Type are required, then just enter any others that make sense for you. The Hectre app will store everything you enter and record it against this particular bin.

  • Click Enable bin printing if you want to be able to print the bin ticket 
    If you are wanting to scan an external bin ticket e.g. one supplied by a packhouse etc - please read this help article.
  • Click Today’s bins when you’ve finished selecting details

Step 5

  • Check you're happy with the bin details you've entered (1)
  • Click on the team members you want to assign to this bin (2)
  • Click Print & Create new bin (3)


The team members you see displayed are those who have been added to your team under the Build Team tab of the Timesheet module. Here's a handy help article if you need some tips on building teams.  Building Your Team on iOS App

Step 6

If the team members you assigned to the bin haven’t been clocked in yet, the clever Hectre app will prompt you to choose a clock in time.
If they have been clocked in previously for a different orchard location, you’ll be prompted with the same message to update what time they moved to the new orchard location.

  • Assign Clock In time for the orchard location
  • Click Ok

Now you're all set to get picking!
