Alpaca Record Keeping with Alpaca 007 - Program Tour

Alpaca Record Keeping Simplified

Welcome to the Alpaca 007 program tour! You'll soon explore how open layout navigation quickly brings everything that is required into focus, in plain view and just a click or two away

Please take a moment so that you may see how you'd like to view the program screen shots in the tour. Move your mouse over the screen image to the right and notice the magnified view that pops up. As you move your mouse within the image on the right, you also navigate in the zoomed view on the left. Move your mouse off the image to close the zoomed view. Click on the image to show it full size in your browser and click the back button in the browser to return to the tour.

Navigation for almost all main screens works similar to the way that most email programs do. Select from panes on the left and details show on the right

To get to this Pedigree screen, we clicked to open the Females pane on the left, clicked the female in the list, then clicked Pedigree. The set of filters above the list can help you find animals more quickly. For example: by typing in the Find box, you see only animals with a Name/TagNum that begins with the letters that you type. You can show and hide the filters by clicking the small red arrow near the top of the pane.

Within the main animal screen, navigation works in a similar way, just click the navigation button on the left to bring up additional information specific for the animal such as full Picture Pedigree, Breeding, Veterinary Treatments and more.. As you tour, you'll notice how throughout the Alpaca 007, pictures are supported to enhance documentation.
