[Solved] Outing comments

How about add a way to make comments about an outing in the app? I like to note the weather at the START of the outing. I guess that would go in the Trip description. I have been afraid to just add this to the email itself, thinking it might spoil the import.

I don't want to wait to add the comments at the end because I may have forgotten things by then. Of course, I might want to add to the existing comments.

Sounds like a good idea David. On the TO DO list.

Adding these comments to the email will not affect the import. The import only deals with the attached files.

David, 

This belongs in the WishList forum. So I will move it there.

This has been added to v1.23, on the Submit window.

You must have the Create Trip... options selected on the Submit Options (wrench button) window. Then these comments will be appended to the Trip comments created on import.

During Sightings Entry, there is a new menu choice in the dropdown for Outing Comments

This pops up a simple text field for adding/editing your Outing Comments.

And then on the Finish Outing window, you will see this. You can further edit it here if you like.

Remember, these comments only go into the Trip Comments. So you must have Create Trip enabled on the Submit Options.

V1.23 just uploaded to the Google Play store. Your device, depending on your settings, will be auto-updated some time in the next 12-36 hours usually.

1. Trip not added to some sightings - fixed.

2. Outing Comments feature added.

3. Fixed bug where list did not scroll after voice recognition.

Thanks for your patience on some of these.

Jeff

It's great that you have added sightings comments because that is something I like to do. I like to record the weather. But I do like to record it at the START of an outing, not at the end. Oh well.

Hi David,

I merged your new post in the WishList with this prior post from you.

Now, look at my reply further up - with screenshots. You can update your outing comments at any time. At start, in the middle and at the end.

Once you press Start Outing and select your checklist you have the ability to start editing your Outing Comments from the dropdown menu. 

Jeff
