  1. 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…

    • 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?

      • 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.

        • Allow to easily import from AviSys

          It is already possible to import AviSys generated exports into Bird Journal with a few caveats:
          http://support.birdjournal.com/knowledgebase/articles/733845-importing-records-from-avisys

          This suggestion is to improve on this and provide first class import that "just works".

          • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                      Photo properties currently include GeoTag, Time, and Caption. I would like to be able to add custom properties to each photo (e.g. photo ID, photographer, etc.).

                      • 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.

                          • 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)

                                Nature Lister is an Android app, partnering to Wildlife Recorder.

                                The Nature Lister format is different to the Wildlife Recorder format, so needs to be handled separately.

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