@SmartWaterTX, thanks for reaching out. Great questions and ideas!
Correct, the first Flex schedule will water to field capacity. This initial watering is always the longest and is used to set a baseline to begin ET & MAD tracking on a daily basis.
Interesting idea. If I'm understanding correctly, this adjuster will override all individual zones (up or down) if used?
All platforms do allow for moisture level overrides. Are your customer's sharing complete or limited access with you? If Limited, then the feature is not available as schedule and zone settings are not exposed. Let us know if you're seeing otherwise.
Love this idea! Like a change owner setting in the user profile perhaps?
Also a great idea. Will pass this along to the product team for consideration.
Just a heads up, Flex schedules will be combined with Fixed schedules in our 2.5 app release. This change will eliminate some of the issues you were experiencing, such as the soil moisture logic at the zone level. For more details, please see this post.
