  1. Most species in one day

    When we click on "Summary" we are shown, among other things, the "Most species in one day". I would love it if in the "Entries section, you could select a year, location, month etc and be given the "Most species in one Day" for the selected criteria. What was my biggest day at a particular site? What was my biggest day in March 2013?

  2. Export to PDF

    It would be nice to export each years sightings. Including photos, to PDF.

  3. Species seen since...

    In the mobile version we have birds seen this year, this month and this week (but not a day list!) It would be more useful if we could specify a start date for a species count, which would allow us to do trip counts, that don't necessarily start on the first day of a month! It would be even better if we could filter to get the species themselves (although that looks a bit like another suggestion, which is more general).

  6. Have more common locations and hotspots already available

    This would be via location packs in the library. We'd install "Location Packs" relevant to you.

  7. Group by family in the checklist report

    Species are currently sorted alphabetically or taxonomically as per settings, but not grouped.

    Should this be an option? Should we group by family even when sorting alphabetically? (I think so)

  8. Allow wide checkboxes for checklist report

    If you want to record a count for each species for each day, then the current narrow checkbox is insufficient.

    We should probably allow an option to switch between wide & regular check-boxes to handle both of these cases.

  9. Allow to customize the number of columns in the checklist report

    Via a slider / number box on the filter bar.

    Page orientation should switch to landscape if there are too many checkboxes.

  10. Allow to exclude subspecies from the checklist report

    Just a checkbox on the filter bar would do it.

  11. Annotate species progress (analysis feature) graph with entries

    The species progress graph in the graphs analysis section (not the summary screen) shows points to allow precise values to be seen on hover.

    Ideally it would be possible to hover anywhere on the line to see a tooltip, and points would refer to individual (or multiple) entries as annotations. Hovering over them would show a details and allow linking to them.

    The original design included this behaviour, but it was not included in the most recent update to this graph, as it was considerably more work:

    Feel free to vote if you'd like to see this.

  12. Indicate when library updates are available in the mobile apps

    The Bird Journal desktop apps indicate when library updates are available by showing a colourful number badge next to the library button, and then again on the updates tab.

    The mobile apps do not currently indicate when library updates are available, meaning they could be missed.

    (One exception is that a number badge is shown on the updates tab in the iOS app, but this is not discoverable until opening the library.)

    The mobile apps should provide a clear way to indicate library updates are available, taking into account the differing menu presentation in the mobile apps.

  13. Allow maps to rotate

    Provide an option to swivel the map around rather than having to twist your head off your shoulders! (Originally suggested by Ian Bennell)

    FEEDBACK NEEDED: Which maps would this be useful for? Picking geotags, browsing maps or both?

  14. Allow for custom properties on photos

    Photo properties currently include GeoTag, Time, and Caption. I would like to be able to add custom properties to each photo (e.g. photo ID, photographer, etc.).

  15. Date range filtering for export screen

    In the version 5 full software, it is possible to filter by date range. This doesn't extend to the export screen though, which still has just year/month filters.

  16. Date range filtering for mobile apps

    Allow a range of dates, not just year & month, to be selected when filtering in the mobile apps.

    It is currently only possible to do this using the version 5 full software.

    The same flexibility in terms of: year to year, year-month to year-month and exact date ranges should be available.

  17. Allow to easily import from AviSys

    It is already possible to import AviSys generated exports into Bird Journal with a few caveats:
    http://support.birdjournal.com/knowledgebase/articles/733845-importing-records-from-avisys

    This suggestion is to improve on this and provide first class import that "just works".

  18. Allow easy import from Nature Lister

    Nature Lister is an Android app, partnering to Wildlife Recorder.

    The Nature Lister format is different to the Wildlife Recorder format, so needs to be handled separately.

  19. Allow Public Browsing

    I manage the observations for a local wildlife group / tour operator.

    I would like to have a page people can visit to view and search through recent and historical observations.

  20. Entry screen bird list as a grid (preferrably using 4 or 6 letter codes)

    When listing I always use the ABA 4-letter species codes. It would be awesome to be able to view birds in a grid based on the codes. So the screen would look something like this:

    ABTO ACFL ACWO AKOH ALFL
    ALTE ALHU ALOR AMAV AMBI
    AMBD AMCO AMCR AMDI AMFL
    AMGP AMGO AMOY AMPI AMRE
    etc.

    This would allow you to see way more species on a single screen and would make selecting species by scrolling faster and easier. Anyway, have a grid option combined with adding the ability to view synonym packs (making codes available) in the mobile app…
