Q: Too many tracking records?
Posted By:


In Relation To:


I track everything in iHerp, so some of my animals Tracking records are frankly getting huge.  I don't want that Tracking page to get so large that it times out because you have to go there to Edit/Delete records.

How do people handle this?  Do you start deleting old records?

Or maybe I just track way too much!

I'm kind of using a combination of the digital tracking and paper tracking. Basically I paper track for a long time and get a little backlogged by a few months (I also never write down when someone sheds and I really should be doing that but...) then I'll go to Iherp and submit everything in one shot for all of those months in a day or two. I tend only to track feedings, water changes, and poops simply because I noticed the tracking getting really long. Though I do have special comment tracking for when someone lays eggs, or does something unusual. I don't think I would ever want to delete old tracking. I just keep an eye on newer stuff, or for when someone goes off of schedule/normal behavior. So like someone doesn't eat when they were previously a perfect eater.
