I suggest you ...

How can I enter subspecies in the mobile app?

When entering data on my 'phone or tablet when away from home only full species appear to be available (e.g. pied wagtail show alba only). Can I adjust the settings or do I simply have to make changes when back at base?

Hi Alf,

I’m closing this suggestion as it’s already possible.

When entering observations, tap the top row where the name of the checklist is shown. Then enable the subspecies switch.

Subspecies are only available where supported by checklists, as on the desktop app.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

    Many thanks once again Justin. I knew that it must be there somewhere but just couldn't find out how.
