      It sounds like you're referring to the checklist report. This is for viewing a report only, suitable for printing for a trip. It is not interactive.

        @bnsdomit: The observations report may do what you're looking for, when filtered to state.

        Best wishes,

        Justin

        Hi Jeff,

        Depending on when you imported your records, you may want to re-import them to fix this. I'm happy to help you do this if you wish, just let me know via email.

        Best wishes,

        Justin

          Not quite sure I follow Trevor. When adding a photo to an observation it shows up:
          - Next to the observation
          - For the species of the observation
          - For the location the entry was made

          What behavior would you like if different from the above?

          Also note, your entries are only visible to you.

          Best wishes,

          Justin

          Trevor,

          It's possible to add photos to observations already using the desktop apps.

          Best wishes,

          Justin

            @Michael Sorry to hear you're having problems with photos. I'm not sure why that would happen. Can you please provide details via email? This suggestion isn't related.

            Justin

            AdminJustin Caldicott (Co-founder, Bird Journal) commented  · 

            @Pat,

            Sorry to disappoint. We've made huge progress over the last couple of years, but there's always more to do!

            Where is telling you photos are available on the iPad? I'm not aware of anywhere making that claim, but if something is not clear enough we'll get it updated.

            Best wishes,

            Justin

                @Jeff: Yes it's possible to do this via export/import. This suggestion is about making that more seamless. Possibly allowing to sync further changes. (Maybe not always wanted)

                    Hi Richard,

                    It's possible to print observations / species in a compact format using Observation / Species reports screens. Does this do what you're looking for?

                    Best wishes,

                    Justin

                      Hi Ian,

                      Given that Bird Journal should automatically import the lat/long as a GeoTag, and that this is visible (and clickable) when viewing the photo, do you still want this?

                      The only additional benefit I can see of this is if the GeoTag is changed you'd still have the lat/long values in the photo information screen. But that's so unlikely I'm not sure it's worth it.

                      Best wishes,

                      Justin

                        Thanks for the suggestion David. To confirm, do you mean to add an icon to the species list item on the left?

                          At the moment everything just goes to downloads and you can move them from there.

                              Only if there was a lot of interest. Maintaining taxonomies is a lot of work and we already have two world bird taxonomies. (IOC applies many updates from HBW I believe)

                              Of course we're open to user contributions here, though it would be a big project and require this to be done first: http://support.birdjournal.com/forums/262707-general/suggestions/6313034-allow-import-copy-paste-on-the-taxonomy-edit-scree (Likely up next)

                                FYI, it's possible to type into the date field which is much faster for this case. It's also possible to click on a month to scroll over years and months which is also faster.

                                I've declined a similar suggestion recently because it should only take a fraction of the time to do this compared with entering the observations themselves. But as this keeps coming up I'll leave it here so people can vote for it if it's still wanted, even with the above information.

                                (And thank you Edward for creating separate suggestions!)

                                  A nice idea.

                                  What would you like to send? Entry report, exported records, perhaps filtered?

                                  What format do you send it in, and what’s your process at the moment?

                                  Please provide detail in the comments so we know what’s required.

                                  @Anon, thanks, do you export just a subset of your records or the whole lot, since the last time you submitted?

                                    How we handle the change to default filtering behaviour will be interesting. I think we’d still want to see all species listed in the species screen by default. So it would probably just be some special logic to exclude them from species counts whereever they are shown.

                                    But.. then how do you allow them to be included temporarily? Maybe you just need to change Settings to allow them if that's what you want, and there's no real temporary use-case.

                                    I guess we should allow properties to be added to a "To exclude" list in settings, rather than having a specific property for this. Then you can exclude "Heard Only", "Possible Escape", etc as desired. Probably with sensible defaults.

                                      I propose we:
                                      - Add day filtering to the mobile apps
                                      - Add end date filtering to the mobile apps

                                      Are you also suggesting we add a species count for a custom date range to the summary screen? If so, I think that would be best captured as a requirement for:

                                      Let me know what you think.

                                        Great suggestion Brian. I've wanted to add hotspot locations to Bird Journal for a while, via Location Packs in the library. The user wouldn't need to think about installing this as it would be pre-installed.

                                        If we make these hotspots line up with eBird then data-exchange will be smoother too.

                                          A number of lifer/first features have recently been added and are now in beta:
                                          – Badges and summary on the entry page
                                          – New customisable premium Firsts report
                                          – Enhanced premium Species Progress graph (Formerly Intra Year Species Progress)

                                          See: http://support.birdjournal.com/forums/262707-general/suggestions/6817448-life-list-count-running-total

                                          We plan to add notifications while entering as well a little later. This suggestion captures this intent.

                                            Should also cover showing subspecies counts.

                                            Should also cover showing counts for non-bird species.
