Accessing JDLink Data:
Agronomic and basic machine data can be accessed through the Operations Center in the office or the MyOperations app on a mobile phone. The JDLink Dashboard is recommended for more detailed machine analysis and additional tools. The Operations Center and JDLink Dashboard are available through the MyJohnDeere.com login page.
JDLink Dashboard will drastically improve the intelligent machine management experience.
Navigate to the MyJohnDeere.com homepage to find the JDLink Dashboard.
The Terminals tool allows dealers to assign, transfer, and manage machine terminal settings with customer and partner organizations. Partnerships need to be established in Team Manager.
Team Manager is used to manage access levels for staff in an organization and between partner organizations. Team Manager is currently used for Operations Center and JDLink Dashboard applications.
Functions available in Team Manager:
Monitor individual machine status and performance at a glance with the machine health card.
The JDLink data download feature in the machine health card enables users to access all the advanced machine measurements for a single machine. JDLink data is useful to troubleshoot machine issues or understand how the machine is being operated. Depending on the specific product type, measures such as wheel slip, fuel rate, engine load, and ground speed are just a few of the many detailed measurements available in the JDLink data download.
The file can be opened in an Excel® spreadsheet for data review and additional analysis.
NOTE: Ultimate Data is JDLink machine measurement data.
To ensure optimization of machines, JDLink reports allow producers to monitor their machines’ utilization. The JDLink Dashboard reports provide reporting capability for the following:
Users can use the same time and machine filter and switch between report types when running Fuel Utilization, Engine Hours, or Engine Utilization reports.
The Dashboard displays insights into the user's machine information in one location. It is divided into multiple pods to alert the machine manager of current machine status.
Maintenance Manager enables producers to set up and manage equipment maintenance plans. Machines can be enrolled in the recommended factory maintenance plan or a customized plan can be set up for the producer’s operation. Maintenance Manager can also be linked to a local dealer for easy parts ordering*.

Notification Center allows users to receive up-to-date information on activities within the organizational fleet. Notifications are listed in the activity panel with the newest notification first.
The following categories are displayed in Notification Center:
*NOTE: Not available in all countries.
Geofence is a virtual boundary that can be set up to alert users when a machine enters or leaves a defined area.
Users can set up a curfew to receive a red alert when a machine is started outside of defined operating times.
With the toolbar at the top of the JDLink Dashboard and Operations Center pages, users can easily navigate between Operations Center and JDLink Dashboard tools and organizations.
The JDLink mobile app is the mobile version of JDLink Dashboard. Use the JDLink mobile app to remotely locate the fleet, view machine information, diagnostics trouble codes (DTCs), or to get driving directions to a machine when a trip is needed.
Producers who already have a JDLink account can simply log in and check their machines with these JDLink tools:

Caught between training a new operator or deciding where to send the tender truck? Major family event scheduled right in the middle of planting or harvest? JDLink™ wireless communication provides ways to see what is going on without having to physically be there.
These remote management tools help any manager who has needed to be in two places at one time. Each JDLink offering has a method to share location and basic machine usage. Once a fleet is equipped with JDLink, managers can logon to the JDLink website, JDLink mobile application or the John Deere Operations Center to view all equipment or a single machine to keep informed of equipment location.
The following are available with all JDLink offerings:
JDLink Connect offers even more in machine management.
With JDLink Connect, users also receive current hours, machine performance information, and much more. This enables managers to save time traveling from field to field. Managers can also improve or maintain performance at levels closer to the full potential of the machines.
JDLink Connect provides a premium user experience with many additional features

The JDLink system automatically logs and sends in machine performance and settings information daily through cellular signals. This information is logged every 30 minutes with average readings for the time period. These measurements are accumulated to give an aggregated average or last value in most cases. This gives the performance information for speeds, fuel rates, and last status for measurements such as settings and fuel tank or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank levels.
JDLink gives producers the flexibility to set up scheduled email reports and also allows producers with large fleets to do basic comparison of machine performance and time utilization with the data export tool. Producers can export multiple machines at once in a .CSV format.
The scheduled reports are automatically generated on the time period selected. The reporting interval can be customized to receive reports daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. The .CSV files can be opened in a spreadsheet program and reformatted to meet the manager’s needs.
Scheduled reports include the following information and data formats:
In addition to scheduled reports, there is capability to run an engine hours report at any time on demand. This is available on the most recent four months of information and sent by email immediately as a .CSV file format to view in a spreadsheet.
NOTE: JDLink features are model dependent. Confirm with a John Deere dealer what specific features are available.
JDLink wireless communication helps get the right employee and machine power to the right location in the operation. Knowing where machines are and where they need to be can mean the difference in getting crops planted minutes before a storm comes or even impact the ability to commit to another customer about availability. JDLink helps route support vehicles such as fuel, seed, and fertilizer by showing the manager the last known location on the map.
Location Summary, shown in the picture on the left, is available with all JDLink subscriptions. A manager views this location summary in the JDLink website. This shows all call-in location markers in selected time period with the date/time stamp.
Producers can coordinate labor and machine logistics efficiently with location information.
Here is how location information appears in the JDLink web application, on the left, and the JDLink mobile application, on the right.
JDLink offers the added bonus of Location History with the Operations Center.
Support machines and people to keep the operation running.
Remotely support operators when they need help with John Deere Precision Ag Technology :
Remote support from a John Deere dealer:
Optimize machines for performance and efficiency
Remote diagnostics with machine alerts and Service ADVISOR Remote:
Dealers can review alerts on the machine to quickly make an assessment if a visit or additional diagnostics is needed by reviewing diagnostic trouble code (DTC alerts).
Remote diagnostics allows operations to get insights from a certified John Deere technician by sharing information prior to any service calls. This means operators can be up and running sooner. Reduce the impact an issue has on overall fleet and operation's productivity. This diagnostic capability is called Service ADVISOR Remote computer diagnostics and is available with JDLink Connect system.
In some cases, the technician can use that information to provide a remedy without any need for an onsite visit. For example, a John Deere dealer can do the following in real-time remotely with an operator in the cab:
The technician can be better prepared for a service call with more information available. With telematics communications enabled, dealer service managers and technicians can more efficiently view DTCs for upcoming visits and plan routes to where the machines are currently located.
