Merging duplicate animals

Summary

How do I merge 2 animals that I have accidently entered twice?

Detailed Description

On the odd occasion, an animal may have been added into Stockbook twice. Stockbook allows you to merge these entries.

Animals can be merged as follows:

1. Identify the duplicated animal entries.

  • Click on the Animals > Current menu option.
  • If necessary, click on the Filter button, to narrow your selection criteria of animals that you want to see in the list.
    • Select your filter options eg. Paddock or Property.
