Reporting of interactions

Hi,

I really like the way that iSpot reports observations, identifications, etc and was wondering if it would be possible to add the amount of interactions that I've added?

I really like the interactions feature and have been adding as many interactions as possible.

Thanks,
Tim

Hi Tim,

Not sure what you mean when you say "reporting". Do you mean passing on observations to recording schemes?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I mean that they are shown on the profile page alongside the observations, identifications, etc.

Ah, okay

There may be a problem with that because it could lead to double-counting. There's an algorithm that is applied to work out an individual's standing in each group, and associations are likely to go across different groups. But it might be possible, I don't really know - sorry!

That's ok, it's just a suggestion for the iSpot team.

double counting

Need not be an issue at all.
Just a list on ones profile: xxx interactions posted. Why not.

Also in the lists, it would be nice to see which observations had interactions - just like one can see which have IDs, and agreements and comments - well interactions would be nice. I think Sallyslak stopped at 250 interactions with her chilli, before it gummed up the system so much (each interaction updates all others), that she started a second chilli and is now well over 250 interactions.

Interactions

Thanks for this query: might I please add.

* Add Interactions to the filter banks: e.g.

Interactions : choose a type of interaction: (visiting a flower, associated with, attatched to, parasitic upon, etc.)

* Add a tab button under searches, so that one can do a search for interactions: e.g.

search: "elephants"
tab /interactions/
list of observations with any interaction with elephant as one of the observations.
