MyJohnDeere Operations Center continues to add value by providing tools and features that enable producers gain insights to execute the task at hand efficiently and profitably.
Learn about all the new tools and features available in the Operations Center to help customers with harvest and improve quality and productivity that will in the end help boost profitability.
Post calibration (October 2014):
The post calibration feature gives users of the MyJohnDeere Operations Center the ability to adjust total bushels or crop weight and moisture by field to ensure accurate harvest totals. Users can reconcile the differences between documented yield totals and scale tickets simply by entering a new weight or total yield.
Being able to adjust these totals ensures that producers are leveraging the most accurate yield results to analyze performance and to make recommendations for the next crop season. Post calibration tool can be accessed from the Field Analyzer>Harvest>Drop down to the top right corner.
John Deere is taking the current Location History a step further by adding a 60-day view. Users will be able to see and verify completed work one day at a time for their fleet on a map and have a two-month history available of their vehicles in the field.
By choosing a date or a vehicle from a list, users can quickly and easily see where their machines have been and verify what work they have done for that date. Users can keep an eye on their entire fleet, easily see the paths traveled, what work has been completed each day, as well as the route to and from the different fields to identify misuse.

JDLink™ alerts in MyJohnDeere Operations Center (November 2014)
To ensure that users are kept up to date on machine health and status and to improve machine uptime, the JDLink Machine alerts from Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs), Geofence, and Curfew are now available in MyJohnDeere Operations Center, providing users valuable information in an easy-to-understand visual format. Machines in the field will have red, yellow, or blue alerts in the Operations Center.
Red alerts are high priority and come off the machine as they occur, requiring immediate action from the operator or manager remotely monitoring the machine.
Yellow alerts are medium priority.
Blue alerts are informational alerts that come off the machines on regularly scheduled call ins or on user request.
DTC alerts are available on machines with JDLink Ultimate data collection. See the JDLink compatibility chart spreadsheet in the supplemental/compatibility section of the sales manual for more detailed information on compatibility.
