  3. Auto-create locations and species that don't exist

    If you enter a location or species name that doesn't exist, Bird Journal should warn that a new location / species will be created, but create them automatically.

    This would streamline the experience when adding observations for new locations and new species.

    Ideally, taxonomies that are not yet installed, should be searched first for species entered, and auto-install the required taxonomy.

  4. Allow searching/filtering of observations within an individual entry.

    Sometimes you may need to edit an entry and find a specific species to make an amendment. Perhaps if you've noticed you entered the count incorrectly or selected the wrong sub species etc for example. If there are a number of species in the entry it can be quite tedious to scroll through them all to find the one you need to amend.

    A search bar above the observations panel would make it great just to type a few letters and find the entry you need in much the same way filtering works on the main pages.

    Cheers
    Craig

  5. Create locations that are dynamic

    I live at Lake Tahoe. I like to track the birds I have seen in the whole basin, but that currently isn’t possible as Lake Tahoe covers two states. I want to keep my lists for each state separate, but also be able to view the birds I have seen at Lake Tahoe as one list instead of as the California side and the Nevada side. So, can you create locations that are viewed in the current hierarchy as well as being able to view sightings from two different locations as one list as desired?

  6. iOS App

    Allow ability to dig down into filtered searches in app and give correct number of sightings of species based on the filter) (eg show the correct number of sightings of species 'A' in location 'B' [not the total number worldwide] and allow drill down to see detail of the sightings of Species A at Location B.)

  7. Make porting of records from one taxonomy to an updated one easier.

    Just porting my records over from my original Mammals of the UK taxonomy to the new Mammals of the United Kingdom and Ireland checklist from the World Mammals taxonomy and have spotted something that might be a useful change to implement.

    On the replace species tool, there are radio buttons to select common or scientific.

    It would be useful to have these stay as a previous selection, so they don't have to be re-selected each time (a total of 6 key-strokes if you want to use scientific names for both sides of the swap).

  8. Create a search option

    I noticed that I often find myself searching for a bird within the app. I have never seen an option to search for a certain bird in your seen species tab.

    For the birders amongst us who have seen thousands of birds, it would be very helpful to have a search option to look quickly find a certain bird.

  9. Entry property is required

    When you create custom entry properties it would be good to force them to be required or not. It is very easy when you start listing in a new entry to forget to enter a property. If this was required when you start a new entry (or not) that would make life much easier and allow this customization to work as intended.

  10. Change pin options

    When you zoom in on the map of your sightings you have a pin with a number on it which denotes how many sightings which then changes colour the further you zoom in until it gives you individual blue pins for your individual sighting. Could we have an option to just have the blue pins on the map whether you're zoomed in or not so you can see clearer each pin and have a better overall idea of where you have been in the country? (hope this makes sense?!)

  11. Allow the import of Song Recordings not just Photos

    I love that you can upload photos of species taken but I would also like to be able to add mp3 tracks of bird songs I have recording during my observations.

  12. Include a running species total while recording

    In the early days of Bird Journal. While having the entry page open and still recording there used to be a running species total. I really miss this feature, and hope it is something that could be added back in the future.

  13. Allow searching in notes (entry and species)

    While properties works well for direct entry it does not work for records imported from other programs where they are or become notes. It would be very handy to be able to search notes for a word or two to assist in editing those records.

  14. Allow the Muscovy Duck in Birds of bermuda

    I have seen a group of Muscovy ducks in an Audubon Society réserve in Sandys Bermuda.
    I do not appear to be able to Solent them, even in Birds of Mexico

  15. Create a link between Apple voice memos and Bird Journal

    It would be great to record your records by voice rather than having to have your head down tapping away on your phone. A simple voice message which creates the record using all the current geo tagging as the message is recorded and then transposing it into the BJ entry for that record. It would mean that I can simply log an entry without having to tap in each element.

  16. 100% export of Bird Journal database

    Create a 100% export of Bird journal database. Ebird record format export drops nested location names except for the country as well as any custom properties added by the user. The Bird Journal Record Format exports the custom properties but does not export the nested locations. Additionally, it is not a flat export file and appears the only use of the file is re-importing back into Bird Journal.

  17. Make it easier to change users when multiple users (ie., a couple) are using Bird Journal.

    I currently maintain three lists - hers, mine and ours. It is easy enough to enter data in one list and then export it, and import it into the other lists. However, what takes all the time is retyping in the email addresses and passwords. Even remembering the email addresses would be a big time saver.

  18. Make YouTube video around the app as some features are not easy to use

    Example adding sightings to previous entry found by mistake no need to enter new entry for same site just need to edit previous entry for that site and add sightings
    Also help full if in Entry Summary the species could be add along withthe the time and number of species seen
