  2. Better Location Support

    One of the things that seems strange to me about Bird Journal is that notating locations seems incredibly tedious, perhaps I'm missing something, but when you add a new entry and you want to put a location, it would be great if this field synced with Google Maps and found the location as you typed it in. Instead I actually have to manually add each location I go to in a completely separate area first? This seems like an incredibly archaic interface.

  3. Group entry - this is a modification on the shared entry but it works as a top down rather than bottom up. A push rather than pull.

    A modification of shared entry but in a push fashion. All the members of a group that want to participate share their email addressed with the leader. As the data is entered it becomes available to those who shared their information for them to choose to pull it down. It is a one-off and potentially more secure and a good selling point should tour companies go this way.

  4. Date picker looks backwards (not forwards)

    On the date picker, when you click on the date, it brings up a screen that has 3 1/2 years of months making it easier to select a date but the dates start on the current year and go forwards 3 1/2 years.

    I can't imagine there would be any requirement to add sightings in the future. At the moment I have to scroll backwards with my mouse wheel which is only a small problem but it would speed the input up, and makes sense, to have the current year and the previous 3 1/2 years to pick from (rather…

  5. Make no. of individuals an easy edit to a saved entry on the mobile app.

    To save time in the field I usually put 'observed', adding no. of individuals by editing the entry on the Mac later at home. If I could access just my entry species list on the app I'd be able to do this at the conclusion of each survey.

  6. Individual species graph

    At the moment it is possible to compare members of a family ie:- Thrushes.
    It would be nice if I could compare sightings of one species ie:- Blackbird from one month to another for the same site.

  7. Provide a way to enter time other than military time with the option to selection AM/PM

    It would nice to have the option of selecting regular time vs. military time and a check box for AM/PM.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. Export to an alternative folder

    I would like to export reports directly to a alternative folder to "downloads" but cannot find out how to create an alternative path. Is this possible?

  16. 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.

  17. Ability to sort Firsts report by species

    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.

  18. Make scroll bars a bit wider

    They can be very difficult to select and move, especially on smaller screens.

  19. Add HBWC to the library

    HBWC taxonomy takes its inputs from all available "fixed" taxonomies on a collaborative basis and is under constant review. Have you considered adding an HBW World list to the library?

  20. 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.
