To use PropNoter, you must have the BG-BASE Propagations Module. For details, contact BG-BASE, Inc.
BG-BASE is a trademark of BG-BASE, Inc. PropNoter is a tool for viewing and editing BG-BASE™ propagations records in the field using a Windows-based handheld device.

A data export utility, built into BG-Map makes transfer of propagations records from BG-BASE to the handheld device quick and easy.

Barcode Compatible

PropNoter can be used with user-printed barcode labels.


Propagations records exported from BG-BASE can be viewed in PropNoter, and each displayed field can be edited. Multi-value fields are preserved and displayed in tabular format, the same as in BG-BASE. Data entered into PropNoter is uploaded and updates BG-BASE automatically.
