  3. Add Bird Journal to the Android photo share menu

    Selecting a phone photo opens the share option where the image can be sent to any app that supports it, for example Gmail, Facebook, Evernote etc.
    This would enable a copy of an image on the phone to be added to a bird entry. This would be particularly useful to show habitat and weather conditions.

  4. Easier selection of historical dates

    In the desktop application, it’d be more convenient if the new Entry screen defaulted to the last date the user selected, rather than today’s date. That way, when entering a sequence of historical records, you would not have to scroll through the calendar repeatedly at the start of each entry. It could still default to today when the program is first opened.

  5. Reintroduce keyboard shortcuts

    In the desktop application, Reintroduce keyboard shortcuts that allow you to jump to a specific property in an observation record, eg, Heard only, which at present require a mouse-click

  7. Have different symbols for different taxon in the Entries menu

    At the moment the 'Entries' screen left hand column (the one listing dates and places) has two symbols, a bird for birds seen and a butterfly for everything else. Could it be possible to have different basic symbols for other taxon, for instance paw-print for mammal, dragonfly for dragonfly, leaf for a plant etc?

  8. Allow to create new locations *above* built-in locations

    E.g., The United Kingdom has two counties Leicestershire and Rutland. Sometimes these are reported as one and sometimes separately.

    What would be nice is to create a new location "Leicestershire and Rutland" and set that as the parent for both of them.

    The issue is that as Leicestershire is a built-in location (it's installed from the ISO-3166-2 location pack), it cannot be edited.

    A solution could be that built-in locations do not define a parent location anymore, instead they define an "ancestor" location, and the parent location could be set as normal, but only to locations that are a descendant…

  9. Add subspecies to country checklists

    The "correct" set of subspecies this is. This may be possible using IOC range data, though there may be the occasional error. But it would allow a starting point for future iteration - we could happily accept amendments.

  10. Group by family in the checklist report

    Species are currently sorted alphabetically or taxonomically as per settings, but not grouped.

    Should this be an option? Should we group by family even when sorting alphabetically? (I think so)

  12. Allow wide checkboxes for checklist report

    If you want to record a count for each species for each day, then the current narrow checkbox is insufficient.

    We should probably allow an option to switch between wide & regular check-boxes to handle both of these cases.

  13. Allow to export the checklist report

    Export is not possible for this report at the moment, unlike other reports. The reason is there is too much formatting to output as the typical CSV file.

    If you'd like to see this, please specify whether you would like the export as CSV without formatting of any kind or as an XLS file with formatting.

    Of course, please consider we may be able to add the flexibility needed to the report so you don't need to export it and modify it manually. We'd prefer that, as everyone will benefit from the easy customization.

  14. Allow to customize the number of columns in the checklist report

    Via a slider / number box on the filter bar.

    Page orientation should switch to landscape if there are too many checkboxes.

  15. Allow to exclude subspecies from the checklist report

    Just a checkbox on the filter bar would do it.

  16. Improve lifer & first badge presentation on the mobile apps

    It should look the same as on the desktop app in a nice orange badge, not just text.

  17. Annotate species progress (analysis feature) graph with entries

    The species progress graph in the graphs analysis section (not the summary screen) shows points to allow precise values to be seen on hover.

    Ideally it would be possible to hover anywhere on the line to see a tooltip, and points would refer to individual (or multiple) entries as annotations. Hovering over them would show a details and allow linking to them.

    The original design included this behaviour, but it was not included in the most recent update to this graph, as it was considerably more work:

  18. Create property "Exclude"

    Create a special property "Exclude" that removes a record from all totals, badges etc. This would allow people to include thins like heard-only, NTVs, escapes etc., but not have them added to totals etc.

  19. Add a country/location/patch/region first badge

    Similar to the newly added Lifer! and Year First! badges, allow firsts for a country, locatation, patch or region to be indicated.

    Country First could be added pretty easily.

    For patch/locations we'd need to customise which locations you wanted to show firsts for. Perhaps by allowing you to "Favorite" locations? Favorite locations could also show counts on the summary screen.

    What do you think? Let us know your requirements & preferences in the comments.

  20. Filter - Location - A list of ALL dates for a location

    Filter for Locations - provide an option to display ALL relevant dates for the chosen site in a list.
    (Rather than 4 or 5 recent entries and then the Species Distribution Chart)

    Do not have these dates open as at present to show a complete entry
    (This will allow users to select the date they want more readily)

    Allow those dates to be clicked on to be taken through to the desired entry.
