Tips ZooEasy Stand Alone

Tips & TricksZooEasy Version 12 was released in December 2014 and it’s still very popular among breeders. Register your animals easily in your own personal ZooEasy database. Gain better insight of your animals, such as characteristics, their characters and health. Want to start breeding? Create a trial pedigree to see if two animals are related. Keep track of your information and improve breeding results.

Tip 1: exchange your records with other breeders
Sometimes you wish to exchange your input with other breeders, like when you bought your animal from another breeder, of when your animal forms part of a breeding couple with an animal of different ownership. In those cases you can easily exchange your basic information and a pedigree with another breeder. You need the same or a higher version than the person you receive the data from. Send this by e-mail and your database is quickly up to date.

Tip 2: gain better insight in Version 12
In ZooEasy Version 12 you can gain even better insight of all your animals. A few tips and tricks:

  • Add pictures of your animals, so they will automatically appear on your pedigree
  • Check the box to see if you’re the breeder and/or owner of an animal
  • Know exactly how old your animal is, because the age is shown in years, months and days
  • Use the extended relationship matrix to see which males and females are related
  • Find your animals faster by sorting columns in ascending or descending order

Tip 3: your data won’t get lost by updating to a higher version
Do you already use ZooEasy? First make a backup of your data. Then you can install Version 12 on your computer. Import your backup and continue with your own animal database immediately.

Tip 4: create a backup
Your database is saved locally on your own computer, so every now and then it’s important to create a backup of your files. Keep this backup preferably at another hard drive, memory stick or in the cloud, so you will never have to start over after a computer crash.
