Exercise 02 - Download a customer folder in read only mode

Move over to the left panel and click on the “Geoagro----test_001” customer folder to select it. Click on “Read Only Copy” to download a read-only copy.

You'll notice the folder you downloaded is now shown on the right panel, which contains the customer folders that are available locally (in your computer). The pink color means it's in read-only mode.

On the right panel, click on the downloaded folder to select it and click on “Open folder” to open it. Cplanner will open the Customer folder window.

You are now in the “Conservation Plans” tab, where you may review the conservation plans within a customer folder, and to add new itemes such as conservation plans, land units and practices.
