  1. Remember the last used Locations

    It would be good to remember the last few (5 - 10?) locations used. I personally have 773 locations, but - without looking at the stats - I'd imagine I use about 5 of them 95+% of the time. If those last 5 were at the top it would be very useful. Unfortunately, I'm more likely to use "Fowlmere" or "Cambridge Botanic Gardens", sooner than I'll be using "Tierra del Fuego", "Chitwan", or "Lamington National Park"; but they still have equal prominence when scrolling through to select a location.

    Maybe it could even default to the closet location on the…

  2. Consolidate entries of same Date and Location

    When I imported from another database, separate entries were created for the same date and location due to different property fields being assigned (such as singing, photograph, heard only). It would be nice to consolidate multiple entries to a single entry.

  3. Abundance of species list

    It would be nice to be able to print out a yearly abundance of species list.

  4. Family groups in the taxonomic list in the mobile version

    The taxonomic list in the beta is great but if working with a very long list it means a lot of scrolling is needed. If family headings are included this will make it quicker to scroll through them. Even better would be to allow the families to collapse so that we could quickly scroll to the family and then locate the bird.
    A scroll bar that actually gives feedback as to where you are in the list would be useful, if such a thing exists in iOS.

  5. 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'.

  7. Allow simple checklist recording

    I only want to mark species as seen for my year/life list. I'm not interested in recording individual observations with dates and locations.

  8. 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

  9. Export entry data to Excel in correct taxonomic order

    Currently data is exported to excel in the order it was recorded. It would be much more useful for the order to be exported in the taxonomic order of the species.

  10. make it possible to list the day's sightings in chronological order.

    I'd like to be able to review my sightings made on a particular day in the order I saw them. To a degree I can do this via the map, as long as I remember my route, but I'd like to be able to choose to order the list of sightings like this if I wanted to.

  11. Allow bulk update between taxonomies

    For example, maybe you want to switch to recording with IOC instead of Clements, maybe you want to use the version of a wildlife taxonomy from the library rather than a custom item.

    This is separate from replacing individual species which will be completed as part of the taxonomy update work, now started: http://support.birdjournal.com/forums/262707-general/suggestions/11372313-update-ioc-clements-world-lists-taxonomy-changes

  12. Add eBird entry data (protocol, # of observers, distance/area traveled) etc. to mobile app

    Please add eBird entry data (protocol, # of observers, distance/area traveled) etc. to the mobile app, so it isn't necessary to go into the windows application later and add that data for export to eBird.

  13. please put back the running total of species observations on the day list, so that I can see just how good a day I'm having.

    In previous versions on the iphone when inputting sightings it was possible to scroll down to the # icon at the bottom of the alphabet list and see the running total for the day. I would like to see this feature reinstated so that I can keep track of how I'm doing species-wise on a day out. On the latest version I have to save the list to see a total (which means having to reset the location filter list to start again).

  15. Add the ability to create a location directly from the entries screen

    On v3 desktop version there was an option to create a location as part of making a new sighting entry - rather than having to go specifically to the locations menu. Not present in v4, either desktop or android app, would be nice if it could be!

  17. Filterable Maps for iOS and Android

    Add filterable maps to the mobile apps, like those found on the Windows desktop version of Bird Journal, so you can easily visualise where you've been birding, where you've seen certain species or taken photos.

  18. Multiple Filter Property Values

    In the Filters, at the end in the Properties section, you can only choose one of the many properties you might have, e.g. the Recorder who entered the record, or Method of Moth trapping: Light Trap or Wine Rope. But let’s say you want to filter for a particular observer/Recorder and only find the moths caught with the Light trap you can’t at the moment.

    So I was thinking something like a new Property dropdown appearing after you chosen your first Value choice, so you can select another and so on, to a max of say 3 or 4.

  20. Merge custom lists

    You may have created a list for South African Mammals and the want to create a similar list for East Africa which already exists. It would be great to be able to merge the 2 lists or to be able to selectively copy part of one list to the other to speed up the creation of the new list
