I would like the desktop app
to add the trip comments to the eBird export comments automatically,
so that I don’t have to manually copy the comments from the trip window to the export window. I want this to be only the comments I manually added to the outing in the mobile app, not the distance and time text that also appears in the trip window. This may require a special, separate comment field.

Hi David,

I can certainly auto-add the Trip Comments to the export window.

Adding the separate comment field will be a bit more work across both platforms.

In the meantime, not too hard to just select and delete the first 3 lines of the comments on the eBird export window.

Thanks for the idea. I think most will benefit from this. So, I won't make it an optional feature; just auto-load trip comments (when the proper conditions are met) to the Comments field on eBird Export.

This will be in Build 6 when released.

I decided to make this an optional feature. Checked by default. Turn it off and it will remember your setting going forward.
