FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Do I need to be a computer geek to use Lodgepole?
No geek skills needed. Your job is to manage your property. Our job is to worry about the "geeky" stuff, and we have worked hard to make Lodgepole user-friendly.
Does Lodgepole work on a network?
Lodgepole works well on a network. Please read the computer requirements in the link above.
Yes, with the right network configuration and software. You'll need to use “Remote CONTROL” applications. Ask us to send you a handout.
What do I need to backup my data?
It's very important to backup your property data. On a regular basis, simply copy one file to minimize lost data. You can use a thumb drive, an external hard drive, or burn to a CD. If you're on a network, this is usually done on a nightly basis. Check with your network administrator.
Is there a limit to how much data you can put in Lodgepole?
Lodgepole is virtually unlimited in capacity, allowing you to enter an unlimited number of sites, maintenance records, etc. Store up to 2 GB of information. Most facilities would typically use a tenth of this size.
What's the current version of Lodgepole?
