  2. Allow names of Species to be re-ordered


    1. Species List
      Currently these appear in alpha order but this means all warblers etc are "shuffled" amongst list.
      It would be preferable if all the related species appeared together.

    E.g. Warbler Arctic

            Warbler          Reed
    
    Warbler Ruppell’s
    Warbler Sedge
    Warbler Willow

    It would be more user friendly to have the option to chose the type of sequence in which the species are listed i.e. to have all warblers one after the other.

    The same with doves / finches / gulls etc
    Is there a way that this can be done?

  3. Add support for Code Synonym lists to mobile apps

    In order to speed up the selection of species in the field, it would be very useful to have support for the code synonym feature you have on the Windows app, which allows you to define short code aliases for species name.Users would then be able to create and share synonym lists based on standards (such as BTO and BBL) or their own lists.

  4. Auto-download photos

    Allow to automatically download and store photos to each copy of Bird Journal as part of the sync process.

    Currently they're downloaded and stored as needed when viewed, or all-at-once using the "Download all Photos" item in the tools menu.

  5. Add an Ordnance Survey grid reference tool (and perhaps Vice County too!)

    This would be useful when exporting records for recording schemes. The six figure reference would be most useful, I think.

  6. 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?!)

  7. drag and drop species to sub species

    You have been on a trip added all your birds, you get home now you want to move them to sub species. At the moment this is a very slow job.

  8. Increment count in App

    I am using the android app for survey entry in the field (yay notebook never leaves pocket!!). It would be extremely useful once a species is entered in an entry to have a increment button in the entry list to simply add to the count for a selected item in the species list as a new bird is encountered rather than having to enter the species and change the count.

  9. Update the British Counties, especially in Wales.

    Some of the Englishcounties and most of the Welsh ones are missing, and could do with updating.

  10. Custom report allowing you to compare species lists between sites

    Custom report allowing you to compare species lists between sites, ability to highlight species common to some / all the selected sites and species only recorded at one - initially direct comparison between two sites would be great, this is something I manually do at the moment.

  12. Add facility to merge lists

    I have imported data into Bird Journal from eBird and am finding that on some occasions (due to the way the data was uploaded to eBird) I have multiple entries for the same location on the same date. There's no way to combine this data to produce the 'composite' list for the day in question.

  13. Create easier navigation through long alphabetical lists

    For long alphabetical lists in the Windows app, eg, on the Locations view in BJ 5beta, it is tedious to scroll down to a distant letter. Can you consider adopting a feature such as is used in the All Apps view of the Start Menu in Windows 10, where clicking the letter header for a specific section (ie, A or B) pops up a box that shows the full alphabet, and then selecting any given letter swaps you back to the alphabetical list but scrolled to that location. This would be particularly useful on touch devices, and would have the…

  14. Link mobile app to popular bird identification guides

    This would be so that when I ID a bird using the bird identification guide, I can quickly add an entry to Bird Journal. Or maybe launch a specified guide ffrom within Bird Journal and capture the result.

  16. Upload Custom Taxonomy

    I have a list of WA state butterflies from BOMNA that I'd like to upload so that I can have a checklist in the app. There is a Custom taxonomy form, but it appears to be for creating a single record which seems useful for single entries for new or very rare sightings, but not usefful when looking at hundreds or thousands of species. How can I bulk upload a checklist?

  17. Provide suggestions when entering location and species names in the mobile apps

    Neither entering the name without suggestions, or picking from a list is optimal

  18. Add ability to send list via email

    Currently I have to retype my lists of sightings to send to my local bird group. If I could send direct from within Bird Journal this would remove a stage.

    A nice idea.

    What would you like to send? Entry report, exported records, perhaps filtered?

    What format do you send it in, and what’s your process at the moment?

    Please provide detail in the comments so we know what’s required.

  19. Option to swap units: Effort distance (Miles/km) and effort area units (Acres/hectares)

    It's would be interesting to add an option to swap distance and area units when you want to set either the effort distance or the effort area in an entry

  20. Lists

    Being a person who keeps lists a facility to create a list of seen wildlife be it Geographic, circumstances. This would include Country, County Local Patch etc. I actually note wildlife I see from aircraft [sad I know] so I miss this facitlity.
