Importing non-standard data
Provide a template(s) for importing data that is independent of other commercial software. Some people have huge amounts of data that is not in 'birding software'.
You can use the Wildlife Recorder template as found here:
It's not independent of commercial software, but is a perfectly generic format that is understood by Bird Journal.
Perhaps it would be useful to allow import of custom formats and have Bird Journal "suggest" which columns are which? (Hopefully getting it right most of the time)
