    • Customisable Toggle switches?

      Wouldn't mind the option to set Toggle switches differently, for instance so that 'Good View' defaulted to Yes rather than No.

      • Way to view first observation for each year for a species

        Whether in the Firsts report, or within the Species section, it would be very nice to see "first observed" date for all years observed to be able to see trends, compare to years with similar weather patterns, etc.

        • Photo icon for species list items

          Add an indicator on the Species Report to show if there is at least one photograph for that species in any entry. As it is a report it doesn't much matter if it makes the report a bit slower, but there could be a checkbox to turn the feature off.

            It would be nice to be able to attach PDF-files to observations.

              • Could Entries dates be displayed in a collapsible accordion format?

                In v5 the Entries view dates list is much more cluttered and awkward to scroll through than v4 (where you could collapse years, months - which was very helpful). Is it possible to have a collapsing menu of dates when in Entries view? A Collapsible Accordion format would work very well - see example at http://cssmenumaker.com/menu/modern-accordion-menu. Picture Year level, then Year-Month within years, then individual entries by date with the great icon for photos included.

                  • Can we have a World mammals list?

                    Given that many birders travel extensively and, when doing so record most mammal species that the see, could a World mammals list be included in the library?

                    • Survey Categories

                      At some point in the future it would be good if you could choose a Survey Category, so you could link Observation and Entry properties to only those categories.

                      For instance. If you are observatory and you are inputting ringing records, you could have properties like: Ring number, fat, wing length, age, weight...etc, but only have them show in the entry window when you choose the Survey Category: ‘Ringing’? And the same could be done for Moth Trapping, Butterfly Transects and others.

                      Those categories could also be used for entry searches.

                      • "Year Firsts Count" graph

                        Add a new "Year Firsts Count" graph. It would look much like the current Year Species Count graph, but instead of showing the species count for each year it would show the number of lifers/firsts (filterable) for each year.

                        After discussion via Facebook & Twitter this was considered a "nice to have" rather than "must have", etc. Feel free to vote for it if you would like to see it added!

                        (It's pretty easy to do.)

                          • Social Media Sharing from App

                            I think it would be great if you could share an individual observation or a daily summary on Facebook/Twitter that would include a single photo if you had attached one.

                            It would also be great if it included your field notes in addition to the standard observation stats.

                              Being able to change the sort order to "by species" would be very helpful for a quick overview, rather than having to open each species in the Species list.

                                  • Allow to export the checklist report

                                    Export is not possible for this report at the moment, unlike other reports. The reason is there is too much formatting to output as the typical CSV file.

                                    If you'd like to see this, please specify whether you would like the export as CSV without formatting of any kind or as an XLS file with formatting.

                                    Of course, please consider we may be able to add the flexibility needed to the report so you don't need to export it and modify it manually. We'd prefer that, as everyone will benefit from the easy customization.

                                    • Create property "Exclude"

                                      Create a special property "Exclude" that removes a record from all totals, badges etc. This would allow people to include thins like heard-only, NTVs, escapes etc., but not have them added to totals etc.

                                      • Add a country/location/patch/region first badge

                                        Similar to the newly added Lifer! and Year First! badges, allow firsts for a country, locatation, patch or region to be indicated.

                                        Country First could be added pretty easily.

                                        For patch/locations we'd need to customise which locations you wanted to show firsts for. Perhaps by allowing you to "Favorite" locations? Favorite locations could also show counts on the summary screen.

                                        What do you think? Let us know your requirements & preferences in the comments.

                                        • Reintroduce keyboard shortcuts

                                          In the desktop application, Reintroduce keyboard shortcuts that allow you to jump to a specific property in an observation record, eg, Heard only, which at present require a mouse-click
