  1. Provide a link to allow registered users to download the latest version of the software

    The website is not clear where you should go to get the download. I have just logged on and received an error message saying sync has failed and i should download the latest version but where is it?

  2. Show Lat/Long on Geotagged Photo's in Photo Information.

    I have a camera that geotags photo's. Allow the geotag information to be shown in the photo information.

  3. Consolidate entries of same Date and Location

    When I imported from another database, separate entries were created for the same date and location due to different property fields being assigned (such as singing, photograph, heard only). It would be nice to consolidate multiple entries to a single entry.

  4. Is it possible to search for your "biggest day"? or biggest week? or biggest month?

    Is it possible to have the database show your "biggest day" with date? or biggest week? or biggest month?

  5. create internal social networking

    it would be nice to be able to add friends and see on your app what birds they are adding to their app as well. Like the untapped beer app but for birds

  6. Summary Page addition

    On the Summary Page under Species Progress can you add a line for a user defined category that would be selected from any of the defined locations. This would allow the user to track a life count for a state or province, country or any other specific location of special interest to the user.

  7. 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.

  8. Export to Artsobservasjoner

    Make it possible to export to excel in the format that is used in Artsdatabanken/Artsobservasjoner: https://www.artsobservasjoner.no/Download/SightingTemplate

    I've sent you a simplified version of the file.

  9. 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:

  10. Filterable Maps for iOS and Android

    Add filterable maps to the mobile apps, like those found on the Windows desktop version of Bird Journal, so you can easily visualise where you've been birding, where you've seen certain species or taken photos.

  11. Date range filtering for mobile apps

    Allow a range of dates, not just year & month, to be selected when filtering in the mobile apps.

    It is currently only possible to do this using the version 5 full software.

    The same flexibility in terms of: year to year, year-month to year-month and exact date ranges should be available.

  12. Fine-tune scrolling when using a wheel-mouse

    In BJ5 beta, scrolling using the mouse wheel currently does not work ideally, in that a single nudge of the wheel scrolls the content too much. In the date picker, for example, if I have all of August 2015 displayed then I scroll down one click/nudge so I can make an entry for the first week of September, it scrolls too far and I can only see Sept 13-Oct 24. I have to use arrow keys to scroll back up to the first 2 weeks of September. Similarly, in when there's a scrolling list such as a checklist, scrolling the…

  13. Allow maps to rotate

    Provide an option to swivel the map around rather than having to twist your head off your shoulders! (Originally suggested by Ian Bennell)

    FEEDBACK NEEDED: Which maps would this be useful for? Picking geotags, browsing maps or both?

  14. Date range filtering for export screen

    In the version 5 full software, it is possible to filter by date range. This doesn't extend to the export screen though, which still has just year/month filters.

  15. Have more common locations and hotspots already available

    This would be via location packs in the library. We'd install "Location Packs" relevant to you.

  16. Entry screen bird list as a grid (preferrably using 4 or 6 letter codes)

    When listing I always use the ABA 4-letter species codes. It would be awesome to be able to view birds in a grid based on the codes. So the screen would look something like this:

    ABTO ACFL ACWO AKOH ALFL
    ALTE ALHU ALOR AMAV AMBI
    AMBD AMCO AMCR AMDI AMFL
    AMGP AMGO AMOY AMPI AMRE
    etc.

    This would allow you to see way more species on a single screen and would make selecting species by scrolling faster and easier. Anyway, have a grid option combined with adding the ability to view synonym packs (making codes available) in the mobile app…

  17. Allow Public Browsing

    I manage the observations for a local wildlife group / tour operator.

    I would like to have a page people can visit to view and search through recent and historical observations.

  18. Indicate when library updates are available in the mobile apps

    The Bird Journal desktop apps indicate when library updates are available by showing a colourful number badge next to the library button, and then again on the updates tab.

    The mobile apps do not currently indicate when library updates are available, meaning they could be missed.

    (One exception is that a number badge is shown on the updates tab in the iOS app, but this is not discoverable until opening the library.)

    The mobile apps should provide a clear way to indicate library updates are available, taking into account the differing menu presentation in the mobile apps.

  20. 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.
