Each time I enter an observation - all mine are visual - the website goes back to the page that asks me to "Choose type of observation". That's OK for one or two but I have over 500 observations to enter which means 500 extra steps for me.
The old website asked you to choose what type of observation you wanted to enter eg. Visual, and it kept it on Visual for all of the entries.
Can this extra step (i.e. "Choose type of observation") be omitted after the initial select of visual (or whatever type of data is being entered).
ALSO my observations are not showing after I enter them. This used to happen under the old system. It's important that we are able to see our observations when they are entered to check if there are any errors.
Observations now show when you enter them. (Thanks)
When entering observations, the website recognises stars for which you have already entered data - so handy for those big long names. BUT my biggest bugbear is that it does not recognise the previous chart and so you have to look up the chart you used EVERY SINGLE time. I now have over 650 observation to enter and I don't want to have to look up the chart each time for stars that I have already observed.
Please can some fix this URGENTLY.
Thanks to Bert, the WebObs Individual Observation Upload form will now:
- Remember what type of observation you just submitted so you don't have to keep selecting it from the dropdown list between observations
- Remember what chart you last reported using for a particular star. Please be careful with this feature though - if you change/update charts please be sure to report the one you actually used!
Yay! The remembering of the type of observation, while seemingly small, is a big thing. I was really missing it! :D
The remembering the chart thing sounds quite useful, too.
Thank yall for all of your hard work.
