  1. 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".

  2. 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

  3. Species List photo indicator

    On Species list view - Have a flag or indicator that a photo/s is held for that species, and have a capability to filter to show species with photos.

    We intend to add the photo icon for species and locations list items.

    The ability to filter would be nice – I’ve created a separate suggestion for this:
    http://support.birdjournal.com/forums/262707-general/suggestions/11174589-allow-to-filter-entries-species-and-locations-scr

    This suggestion should be considered to mean only for showing the icon.

    UPDATE 2016/03/05: This is blocked for now as it’s too “expensive” to work out. Further changes are needed to do this without slowing down the software.

  4. Auto-download photos

    Allow to automatically download and store photos to each copy of Bird Journal as part of the sync process.

    Currently they're downloaded and stored as needed when viewed, or all-at-once using the "Download all Photos" item in the tools menu.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow import/copy-paste on the taxonomy edit screen

    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.

    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.

  12. allow easier linking of video and audio files as is case with photos

  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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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?

  20. Add an option to list locations in order of distance from your current position

    This would make it much select a location, and would help prevent adding a location twice with different names. Could be linked to a database of other users sites or just include well known sites.
