A wireless connection to the My John Deere can be a very useful tool with AgStudio. Bringing in FieldOp data INTO AgStudio as well as exporting out recommendations to the MJD Ops Center, where they can be assigned to the desired machine.
For the purpose of this article, we are going to assume NOTHING has been done to create a connection and will start from the very beginning.
NOTE: This only needs to be done ONCE at the very beginning when setting up the very first connection. Once this step is done, it doesn't need to be done again and you can proceed to connect the Grower to AgStudio.
Go to Add-Ons > My John Deere
Click on the Chain with the yellow barrel icon (link database to MJD account).
Click OK to confirm. You will then be brought to the MJD log in page.
Please enter YOUR MJD credentials, as this is the foundation for the connection and any partnerships you may have.
Click to Allow Access, and make sure the toggle for your account is turned on and click Save.
It should now be confirmed that you have made a connection to YOUR MJD account.
You may now proceed to connect the desired growers account to AgStudio.
There are 3 basic connection types between MJD and AgStudio.
Display Deere Connections (for Partnership) - clicking on this icon in the Add-Ons tool will display the list of partners a user has for the database. It will show them either as Connected or Not Connected (you can click on the link, log in to MJD to toggle a partnership on).
Test Permissions on Grower - click on this icon to show the current status of this grower's connection to MJD. Whether the connection is "Active" or not, what kind of link, and if there are any files to be downloaded. If there is any issues with a connection, this is a good place to find any errors on how to fix the connection.
Set a Start Date for Download - click on this icon to reprocess any data in MJD that needs to be brought back in to AgStudio for whatever reason. Set a date back to when you want the data, and check the box that you want to reprocess for the whole grower. **NOTE: It is good practice to delete any possible duplicate data before reprocessing, but any duplicate data that was brought in the same way (i.e. data previously brought in from the data transfer), should get overwritten and not duplicated.
NOTE: If there are any issues with partnership connections, please refer to the article below to help confirm your partnership is with the grower in MJD is set up correctly.
