I'd like to export records easily to the Essex Field Club, which has the ability to sync MapMate data. See link:http://www.essexfieldclub.org.uk/portal/p/Essex+species+data
Many other recording schemes apparently use this system.I think Bird Journal has an easier to use interface, but would like the ability to easily transfer records across.4 votes

Allow to add an entry for a date range rather than a single date. This would be helpful when adding records where for example, only the year is known. Also when adding records from a multi-day trip.8 votes
Similar to BirdTrack & eBird support, add support for exporting records to the National Biodiversity Network11 votes
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.46 votes
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.
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).2 votes
I propose we:
– Add day filtering to the mobile apps
– Add end date filtering to the mobile apps
Are you also suggesting we add a species count for a custom date range to the summary screen? If so, I think that would be best captured as a requirement for:
Let me know what you think.
Allow to take photos on the iPhone/iPad/Android apps, and add them to your journal13 votes
Add support for the HBW Taxonomy in Bird Journal.0 votes
This would be via location packs in the library. We'd install "Location Packs" relevant to you.0 votes
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)0 votes
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.0 votes
Via a slider / number box on the filter bar.
Page orientation should switch to landscape if there are too many checkboxes.0 votes
Just a checkbox on the filter bar would do it.0 votes
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:

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.0 votes
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?0 votes
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.).0 votes
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.0 votes
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.0 votes
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.0 votes
