Add Location to GiraffeSpotter

What Wildbook should this feature be in?

What would you like to see?
I am working on a new bulk upload for a new conservancy location and would like Mugie Conservancy to be added as a site. Additionally, could we add a new naming scheme for this upload so new individuals that are not yet in the database are named ‘MugXXX’?

How would this functionality help you?
This will help us identify which individuals have traveled between two study sites and which individuals have only been identified through a recent population assessment on Mugie Conservancy.

Hey @jenna,
Thanks for posting to Community for this. We are in the middle of adding functionality that will enable you to handle these location names independently, so we will help get that set up for you once it’s released.

As for adding the new location, we can get on that right away. At what level of hierarchy do you want that to appear in the study site list? And would you like it to appear as written? Mugie Conservancy is a bit different than any of the study sites currently listed, so I want to double-check before we get it added in.


Thanks @tanyastere!

For the new location, it can go under ‘Kenya’ and can just be labeled as ‘Mugie’ to match the naming convention of the other locations.
