  1. 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.

    • Allow to exclude subspecies from the checklist report

      Just a checkbox on the filter bar would do it.

      • 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:

        • 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.

          • 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?

            • 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.).

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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".

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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…
