FYI @ACWadmin1

Hi, @PaulK !
I’m combing through some very old posts here. Would you still consider this an issue on your end?

I can confirm that there are some duplicates here (e.g., Marked Individual 37067100-1c4e-4aef-b97e-77b883270750 encounter bc1e8f59-d7e6-424e-bea9-9e458a707eef. But I’m not sure how much of a block this is for you to work.

That will help us prioritize.
Many thanks and cheers,

Hi Mark

This is not a block for us with reasonable bandwidth but our folks in Africa would appreciate the minimum possible data xfer when doing searches.

If you can filter out any “tail” encounters from the African Wild Dog data that would be appreciated.



fyi @ACWadmin1

Hi, @PaulK !
We’re tracking this internally as WB-1680.

Hi, @PaulK !
WB-1680 is marked as done, and ACW I believe has been updated since that fix.
Can I confirm that this is no longer an issue for you?

Hello Mark

Thanks, I have checked this out and it appears to be working as expected.

Thank you and regards
