Weather Data

Posted by Mark Hardin on 07/24/2018

TurfHop has partnered with Weather Underground to give you near real-time forecast for each job on your calendar. Each job has it's own unique daily forecast based on the address, so jobs across town will have accurate precipitation outlook

Enabling Weather Data

A lot of TurfHoppers are using this feature to it's fullest.  Seeing near real-time weather forecast is helping influence how they are building their schedules.  Getting started is easy:

  1. Navigate to "Settings" under the management heading
  2. Select the "Application Settings" tab
  3. Check the "Enable Weather Data" checkbox

Pinpoint Accuracy

You will notice that the precipitation chance may vary from job to job.  This is because we fetch the forecast for every address in the system. If you have jobs scheduled on opposite sides of town, neighboring cities, or slap across the state, rest assured that we are grabbing the forecase for each unique location.

Additional Thoughts

If you are enabling weather data for the first time, it will not fetch your job forecasts until the next day. We update your job forecasts at 3AM every day and if you move an event on the calendar.  We want the precipitation chances to be as accurate as possible, so we will re-fetch as you drag events around on the calendar.
