Create new individual ID per species

What Wildbook should this feature be in?


What would you like to see?

At the moment, new IDs are suggested in the interface by location; i.e. a new whale shark or sandtiger from the Pacific Coast of Australia could both be AP-044. Is it possible to create a new ID per species, rather than having multiple species with the same number sequence?

How would this functionality help you?

It would avoid confusion in naming across multi-species platforms.

I know that in Codex, ID prefixes are determined by the species and not where it was seen. I’m not sure if this is planned for Wildbook, but I’ll see what I can find out.
