iRecord butterflies app - request for option to lock location name field

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the right place for feedback on the iRecord butterflies app, please point me to the right place if it's not.

I've recently switched over from the main iRecord app, and submitted several hundred butterfly records using the butterfly app during a walking holiday.

Overall it's worked well and has a more efficient / quicker set of steps to get a record submitted, which is helpful when out walking.

 

There is one main step that takes up most of the time taken to log a record. The location name field does not have the option to 'lock' its text value like the main iRecord app.

This means that you have to start manually entering the location name for each record, and rely on the built-in Android auto-fill function to recommend the location name, which only needs to change infrequently (The GPS location will change of course). However, as more names are added this gets less and less useful.

Would it be possible to add a 'lock' function to the location field like the main iRecord app as this would reduce the time taken to log records by a large amount.

Thanks!
