    You’ll need to provide more information about the program and what the dashboard says - if it thinks it was to water or not.

    Any reason on the notification why the program didn't start ? Maybe you have Adaptive Frequency and the watering needed is too little to be beneficial to plant root and would be used at the next cycle.

    I would get a notification on my phone saying RM started to water and then another notification saying it didn't start.  I received that the past 4 days, all days were sunny and 80's to 100 degrees out.  Adaptive frequency was off.  I had to run manually yesterday and today.  The graphs below, does that represent the amount of watering for each day?  The past 3 days was 0%

    The icon from yesterday means (you can mouse over it) that you had enough water in soil. This should also be listed as "reason" in the Watering Log from Settings. If you click the button "show graph" next to the "Field Capacity" in zone properties it will show you a available water graph.

    If your soil looks dry you can reduce the "field capacity" from zone settings. This will reduce the amount of water that your soil can hold after a rain event and directly reduce the number of days until next schedule. You need to remember that even if the soil looks dry on the surface you might have plants with deeper roots that still have water available to them.

    OK, thank you.  Looks like I had 1.49" of rain Thursday, so I am assuming that is why it didn't run Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  I manually ran on Sunday after getting concerned with the heat wave.
