I suggest you ...

Allow import/copy-paste on the taxonomy edit screen

Currently, you have to add data to the taxonomy editor by hand. It would be great to be able to import or copy-paste from a website/spreadsheet.

We’re considering if we can make a basic form of this available fairly soon.

This may mean accepting only a predefined format that we’d have samples for.

Now that all library content is available to everyone this feature is even more valuable.

    This would be an excellent idea. In addition, as more & more people are adopting BirdJournal as a user-friendly multi-device tool, the demand for further taxa will only increase: UK vascular plants would be extremely helpful to many recorders of wildlife. John Rankin

    I agree. Also I am working on a synonym pack for Portugal and would be great to be able to import a synonym pack instead of painfully typing each bird

    This would be useful. I've just completed a whole load of UK Taxonomies (more in progress) and it has taken a long time. I've had to copy/paste individual entries- plenty of keystrokes!
