Data Entry Improvement

For those of you with many nest sites to monitor, you probably know that Groups are a useful way to manage data and save time. If you’re not yet taking advantage of the groups tool, here’s how to start.

Several NestWatchers pointed out, and we agreed, that it would be really nice if your nest map would stay within the group filter you were working in until you changed it. We’re pleased to announce that now it does!

If you choose a group, e.g., “campus nest boxes,” and filter your map to only show those nest sites, then those are the sites you’ll see until you choose a different filter. You no longer need to re-select your group every time you stray from the Your Data page.

Remember to wrap up your data entry as soon as possible if you want to get counted in our January results recap!
