  1. Add an Ordnance Survey grid reference tool (and perhaps Vice County too!)

    This would be useful when exporting records for recording schemes. The six figure reference would be most useful, I think.

  2. Update the British Counties, especially in Wales.

    Some of the Englishcounties and most of the Welsh ones are missing, and could do with updating.

  3. Set the GeoTag for a new location, when created in the field

    When adding a new entry in the mobile app, it will create a new location for you, if the name doesn't match any existing location.

    If live mode is enabled, this location should have it's GeoTag set via the GPS.

    This would make submitting to BirdTrack, which requires GeoTags for all locations, much easier.

  4. include a location filter in the checklist filter

    If the checklist filter also filters by relevant location (e.g. the "Birds of Britain" checklist filtering your sightings for all species on the checklist seen at locations in the UK) then the totals in the checklist graph will be accurate. In this way you can use checklists to generate list totals for a given geographic area (and compare list totals between different checklists).

  5. 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".

  6. Provide suggestions when entering location and species names in the mobile apps

    Neither entering the name without suggestions, or picking from a list is optimal

  7. Route tracking

    Allow Bird Journal to track your route when recording on the mobile apps. The route should then be shown on the entry report on all apps, including the desktop apps.

  8. allow comparison between sightings in given years

    i.e. for year 1 list sightings with comparison for year 2 highlighting sightings seen in both years and sightings seen only in year 1 or 2. Preferably with the option to specify a date range.

  9. Automatically empty search field after a species has been added to the entries

    After you have pressed the 'done' button, to add a species to the observations, it would be convenient if the search field was emptied automatically, so you can start a new search right away

  11. Lists

    Being a person who keeps lists a facility to create a list of seen wildlife be it Geographic, circumstances. This would include Country, County Local Patch etc. I actually note wildlife I see from aircraft [sad I know] so I miss this facitlity.

  12. Allow customise Species Progress graphs on summary page

    It would be useful to be able to customise the graph on the Summary Page as I have little use for birds seen last day, last month etc so would like to take them off. However I would like fields like UK list, European list etc. Having facilities to customise this will be great as people can get the counts they want as soon as they go into the program.

  13. Saving species entry on mobile version

    It is much easier to select species from a list filtered by birds previously seen in the specific location. Unfortunately when the species added are saved, that filter is is lost when you want to add more species to the sighting, meaning you either have to filter every time you edit, or not save until you are finished adding (which could be a few hours in a location).

    Two suggestions to get around this:
    1. Keep the filters on after saving. This would probably need a change to the saved entry.

    or


    1. On the species entry screen, when save is…

  15. Allow auto-renewing subscriptions for Europe

    European tax law has changed, adding a lot of additional paperwork for us to continue selling into Europe (outside of the United Kingdom) from our website.

    It is still possible to purchase single-year Bird Journal Premium subscriptions from our apps via the Apple AppStore or Google Play.

    Please vote for this item if you would like us to resume selling auto-renewing subscriptions or gift certificates, Europe-wide, from our website.

  16. 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?

  17. Date range on entries

    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.
