  2. Fine-tune scrolling when using a wheel-mouse

    In BJ5 beta, scrolling using the mouse wheel currently does not work ideally, in that a single nudge of the wheel scrolls the content too much. In the date picker, for example, if I have all of August 2015 displayed then I scroll down one click/nudge so I can make an entry for the first week of September, it scrolls too far and I can only see Sept 13-Oct 24. I have to use arrow keys to scroll back up to the first 2 weeks of September. Similarly, in when there's a scrolling list such as a checklist, scrolling the…

  3. Species Mapping

    As over the years I have used various taxonomies such as Clements, IOC, BOU and ABA, inevitably issues can arise in the mapping of these species between taxonomies and errors can creep into species lists. For example Setophagea petechia is Yellow Warbler in the BOU taxonomy but in the IOC taxonomy it is Mangrove Warbler. In IOC American Yellow Warbler is Setophaga aestiva. To help spot any such issues it would be helpful if in the species window, in the box where a species taxonomy and other details are shown, for the species name in the secondary taxonomy to be…

  4. Export to Artsobservasjoner

    Make it possible to export to excel in the format that is used in Artsdatabanken/Artsobservasjoner: https://www.artsobservasjoner.no/Download/SightingTemplate

    I've sent you a simplified version of the file.

  5. Do not smooth intra year graphs

    In the Mac beta, at least, graphs showing the number of each species recorded this year are "smoothed". I don't think this is right (as the number you see on a particular observation is discrete - you cannot safely interpolate numbers between observations) and it makes it difficult to use. A simple bar graph would be better.

  7. Custom Life Lists for chosen countries visited

    Currently we are unable to choose custom Regions such as creating a Western Palearctic list to then pick from countries visited to show a Life List for this for example that can also be shown in Graphs on checklists or Country lists.
    Related to this is the current limitations to only pick from a single visited site to see total species seen, but this doesn't scale with likes of United States where the Outer Lying Islands of USA form one of the US States but you cant choose from a list of multiple countries.(I think from Memory that Mexico is…

  8. Selecting an observation in checklist view

    When in checklist view in BJ5 beta, entering a species code in the Search field will filter the checklist column to show just that species, but then selecting that species requires the user to click or tap that specific item in the checklist column. Instead, when the checklist has been filtered to a single entry in this way, it should be possible to select it by simply hitting enter, as it is in non-checklist view

  9. Link mobile app to popular bird identification guides

    This would be so that when I ID a bird using the bird identification guide, I can quickly add an entry to Bird Journal. Or maybe launch a specified guide ffrom within Bird Journal and capture the result.

  10. Coloured Grids

    Square grids -preferably a kilometre square- for us Australians, so that we can get an idea of how species-rich an area might be. We can then click on an individual grid and see the sites within and the species list for that grid -they can be coloured for differing species amounts. This will also allow for a more thorough coverage of a region and encourage birders to visit areas where they would not normally go.

  11. Change order of pictures

    There should be an option for changing the order of pictures after you have uploaded them to Bird Journal. Mabye you would have wanted picture number three displayed first.

    The solution as of today is to delete the pictures, and upload them again in the desired order.

  12. Allow to filter entries, species and locations screens to only those with photos

    I suspect this will be most useful on the species screen to quickly get a list of species photographed. Would it be useful for the entries and locations screens too?

  13. Get mobile app to default to the nearest location when creating a new list

    I've removed my votes from the "Remember the last used Locations" to this one as I think this is a better idea: When creating a new sightings list, it should to as the title says and default to the nearest location specified in the geotag. Of course, this could be overwritten by the user if required, but would save scrolling through a long list of locations (I have c.800).

    This isn't important on the desktop version as typing in the first few characters will quickly give the location required.

  14. Provide a scroll feature in the gallery screen

    This would enable a user to more readily view their pictures. Perhaps a full screen option too?

  15. Graphs: Comparing years

    There should be graphs with several years for a species. This way you can compare when "invations" peaked from year to year, and it would be more intuitive check population trends.

    One should be able to choose between max count or number of observations on the Y-axis.

  16. "On this day 2 years ago"

    Mabye add something fun like, on this day 2 years ago, this week 3 years ago, 1 year since first observation of a specie, etc.

  17. Allow to share an entry with someone via Bird Journal

    Can select Bird Journal users to share with, or just enter email addresses, allowing recipients to view shared entries with a free Bird Journal account.

    Useful if you've gone birding in a group - only one person needs to keep a record of observations.

  18. Make adding a new observation quicker

    1. When you add a new observation set the initial count to 1, not zero (which is unlikely to be what is wanted).
    2. When I tap on the 'add note' button, a text entry box pops up but I have to tap again in the box to be able to enter text (Nexus 4, Android 5.1.1). Must be possible to go straight to text entry surely?

  19. Sections in notes columns in entry

    When I write notes for a specie in an entry I make columns. When I save this - the columns disappears and it becomes one text without space.

    It should still be sections/paragraphs.

  20. Firsts Map

    Introduce a new map that shows the location of firsts. By default it would show world lifers. Filtering would allow it to show firsts for a particular year or country.
