Editing records

From Biolovision Help
Jump to navigation Jump to search

You can edit or delete the records you have submitted each time you have the edit button Edit button.png or the dustbin button Bin button.png located next to it.

Access your data as usual: in the right hand column (your last sightings during entering data) or from the left hand column: (All my sightings) or with the search engine.

If only the red logo No edit button.pngis shown and the bin is no more present, it means you can no longer edit all the fields of your record due to the fact that the record has been exported and you need to contact your local administrator to edit some part or delete it.

From the right hand column: Your last sightings

On the right hand column as you enter those following the add sightings on this locality or add a precise sighting path (see wiki section Web interface > Submitting records > Step 3/3: Transmit my sighting). The list shows your last 30 submitted observations, by site and date. To edit a record click on the pencil and paper icon, to delete use the dustbin icon (see image Editing records from latest sightings list). When editing a record, you get a short summary of the observation and three tabs from which to modify the data: picture and sound, data and site (see image Editing a simple record. Add a photo).

Modify a record from a list

Records belonging to a list are marked with a green square, full when the list is complete (1) or hollow when it is a partial list (2) (see image below).

Example of records that belong to a list.

1. Full square: complete list.
2. Hollow square: partial list.

If a record belongs to a list, there are further options at the bottom of the summary. Click the dustbin with a pen to delete the full list, or click the pen with plus sign (+) to add a new record to the list. There is also one more tab allowing you to modify details of the full list: Modify the form (see image Editing a list). Any changes you make under the Modify the form or Edit place tabs will apply to the whole list.

It is also possible to modify your observations by going to All my observations in the left hand column of the screen (see image Editing records from all my observations). Click on the icons next to each record: dustbin to delete it, pen and paper to modify it. If they are part of a list, you can also delete the complete list (icon dustbinbin with a pen). Place your mouse on top of each icon to see to which action they correspond to. When editing, you will be taken to image Editing a list.
