Name Missing

Hi all,

I'm new to recording and to the iRecord site and app but I take a lot of photos and attempt to ID various things I see so thought I'd give it a go.

I installed the app on my LG G4 last week and submitted my first record recently. I was able to do this successfully (although I did just ammend my record via the website), however I'm having trouble with setting the location of my second record (Oedemera nobilis). I can select the location of the sighting on the map but I can't get a 'Nearest Named Place' to save and as a result I get 'Name Missing' in red and cannot submit the record. I am not entirely sure whether this is a problem with my phone, the obscure location (although I was able to set it for my first record but that may have been done automagically via GPS) or whether there is something wrong with the app.

Hope this helps someone help me! :)

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Hi Paul,

Welcome to iRecord :) that's a good question. I wonder if that could be linked to navigating using android back button. The location name should save automatically if you navigate out of the location page with the App back button (<) or if you click on any other location tab - that all triggers the app to update the location name. Otherwise also try entering a location name on the GPS tab without clicking on the GPS refresh/locate button.

Let me know if any of that would work.

Thanks for the welcome and

Thanks for the welcome and for looking into this Karolis

I did try hitting the app back button but it didn't respond. I tried restarting the device in case there was some kind of glitch with the Android OS. I've also tried entering the location in the GPS tab (as well as selecting the location on the Map and Grid Ref) and attempting to type 'Woodmancote' as the nearest named place but nothng happens when I hit save or press the App back button . Should the 'Nearest named place' suggest named places when you start typing? I can't recall if that happened on my first record but it's definitely not happening now...

 

Thanks,

Hi Karolis,

Hi Karolis,

I think there is something wrong with that record. I was successfully able to add a location as expected on a new record I created just now. After I did that I went back to the 'problem' record and the app back button is still unresponsive which means I'm unable to add the location... I should probably delete it and try again!

 

Thanks

Hi Paul,

Hi Paul,

Thanks a lot for letting me know of this. It is very hard to say what went wrong, so I will be looking into this once I find some time. I agree, probably it is best to delete the record now.

If this happens again, then could you also describe any steps you took for this to happen, so I could try to reproduce the bug.
