Field Book Update
As many of you are already aware, we have recently encountered some glitches with one of the Notes from Nature features called the Field Book. The Field Book is the place where Notes from Nature users can look at their personal statistics and the badges they have earned. We are very sorry about this glitch, but the good news is that we have a solution that deals with this problem!
Now each Notes from Nature Project will have a dedicated Field Book. The Field Book will collect information about your work and it will be organized by specific Projects, such as Southeastern U.S. Biodiversity or CalBug.
Your Field Book can be accessed using the link at the lower right of each Project’s landing page. The Field Book contains things like recent classifications, links to your Favorites and weekly statistics. The badge section not only contains the badges that you have earned, but you can also see your remaining badges (which are ones you are still working towards) and your progress towards them.
Your Field Book will show general statistics that reflect previous effort. However, the Field Book will be collecting information for things like time or decade badges starting now. While we acknowledge that this solution is not perfect, this is the best we are able to do right now. We still have the goal of a Notes from Nature wide Field Book that reflects all effort across our many Projects, but this capability will have to wait until we have additional developer resources.
We greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts on all of the Notes from Nature Projects. Thank you very much for all that you do!
