Merging encounters?

What Wildbook are you working in?
What is the entire URL out of the browser, exactly where the error occurred?

Can you describe what the issue is you’re experiencing?
Is there a way to merge encounters of the same individual with the same sighting ID?
Can you provide steps on how to reproduce what you’re experiencing?

If this is a bulk import report, send the spreadsheet to with the email subject line matching your bug report

Hi @Yaly

You want to consolidate multiple Encounters of the same individual in the same Sighting into a single Encounter, is that correct?

this is what I am aiming for

Thanks for confirming! Merging currently only works when you want to merge two unique individuals into one individual. For your example, I’d recommend using the Add Image to Encounter feature in the Gallery page of one of the encounters to upload the images of the other encounters you want to combine.

Then you can manually delete the remaining encounters of 6069 that are in the sighting (Click Edit button in Metadata section of the Encounter then click Delete Encounter? button).

Thanks for your answer Anastasia
These are old encounters (not mine) so I don’t have the photographs to reupload…
I will leave it like this until there will be a way to merge :slight_smile:
