  1. 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

  2. Add subspecies to country checklists

    The "correct" set of subspecies this is. This may be possible using IOC range data, though there may be the occasional error. But it would allow a starting point for future iteration - we could happily accept amendments.

  4. Monthly Summary function

    As Bird Journal is organised in months, it would be nice to have a feature where you could write a monthly summary with chosen images and map locations. This in turn could be exported in a format that could be uploaded to a blog or Facebook?

  5. Easier selection of historical dates

    In the desktop application, it’d be more convenient if the new Entry screen defaulted to the last date the user selected, rather than today’s date. That way, when entering a sequence of historical records, you would not have to scroll through the calendar repeatedly at the start of each entry. It could still default to today when the program is first opened.

  7. Location mapping

    Is it possible to generate a map of locations without having to log sightings for these in the first instance?

    When setting up the database for different countries I first enter all of the locations that I visited or intended to visit.. It would be good if these locations could be viewed on a map first.

    Also, from a bird club point of view it would be very useful to be able to generate a map of all of the commonly used locations/sites.

  8. Custom report allowing you to compare species lists between sites

    Custom report allowing you to compare species lists between sites, ability to highlight species common to some / all the selected sites and species only recorded at one - initially direct comparison between two sites would be great, this is something I manually do at the moment.

  10. Add Bird Journal to the Android photo share menu

    Selecting a phone photo opens the share option where the image can be sent to any app that supports it, for example Gmail, Facebook, Evernote etc.
    This would enable a copy of an image on the phone to be added to a bird entry. This would be particularly useful to show habitat and weather conditions.

  12. Mobile app finds nearby eBird hotspots

    Mobile app finds nearby eBird hotspots.
    Set up the mobile app so that when initiating a checklist, it will provide a list of nearby eBird hotspots to choose from.

  13. Have different symbols for different taxon in the Entries menu

    At the moment the 'Entries' screen left hand column (the one listing dates and places) has two symbols, a bird for birds seen and a butterfly for everything else. Could it be possible to have different basic symbols for other taxon, for instance paw-print for mammal, dragonfly for dragonfly, leaf for a plant etc?

  15. Improve lifer & first badge presentation on the mobile apps

    It should look the same as on the desktop app in a nice orange badge, not just text.

  16. Filter - Location - A list of ALL dates for a location

    Filter for Locations - provide an option to display ALL relevant dates for the chosen site in a list.
    (Rather than 4 or 5 recent entries and then the Species Distribution Chart)

    Do not have these dates open as at present to show a complete entry
    (This will allow users to select the date they want more readily)

    Allow those dates to be clicked on to be taken through to the desired entry.

  17. Filter - Entries - A Go To Date

    Filter - Entries

    1) Have an option to select a specific date (faster than scrolling through lots of entries)

    2) Show all entries on a specific date
    (So all entries from that date can be seen irrespective of sites visited on that day)

  18. Ability to compare actual records against potential number of records

    The ability to report number of nights a moth is caught each month against number of nights trap run is something I manually produce on a monthly basis for key moth Families such as Sphingidae, to pass on to researchers. This data is more useful for mapping distribution / flight periods than pure count data

  20. Allow display order of custom Observation/Entry properties to be changed

    Currently these are displayed in the order that they were entered and cannot be changed. It would be nice to allow the ordering of these to be changed to something more logical afterwards.
