What Wildbook are you working in? ACW
Hi, I’m trying to find fields at the Encounter level AND the Sighting level where I can enter free form text relevant to each level (enc vs occ).
I figured out that the Encounter - Attributes - Additional Comments field is populated by the use of the Encounter.occurrenceRemarks field, which I tested in a small bulk upload.
The problem is that it also displays in the Sighting - Observations box, but repeatedly - once for each encounter. I understand why this is designed this way - to capture each comment, which could be different from each other, in each encounter record in the sighting.
Is there another field that I could use, via bulk import, to display some free text at the sighting level, and only once? For example, at the top of the Sighting page where it lists other details like species, group behaviour, location ID, etc?
Also, is there another way to populate the Encounter - Attributes - Additional comments field so that it doesn’t also populate the Observations box at the Sighting level?
I also tried to use the “Encounter.researcherComments” field, but it seems to be populating the Audit Trail box (bug? see screenshot below) instead of the Comments box below it in the Metadata section of the encounter record. However, if the latter is where the researcher comments data is supposed to land, then it’s less preferred for our purposes; our preference is the Additional comments under Attributes.
