Example of an assigned encounter w/o a submitter ID: Wildbook for Carnivores | Login
Can you describe what the issue is you’re experiencing?
A user reported finding duplicate Marked Individuals in the system. The example she sent has been fixed, WAM1903 (Blue), but I suspect the cause of the issue still exists in many Marked Individuals’ encounter records, if I’m correct about the cause.
I believe the cause of the problem was a blank submitter ID field in the original ID’d encounter records that were uploaded by @jason way back in April 2020. All these records have a “managing researcher” but no submitter info.
Now all of our bulk imports include the submitter ID. Earlier this year, we uploaded a batch of new images of at least one existing ID’d individuals (WAM1903) with the submitter ID field populated, which is what I believe caused the duplicate Marked Individual record.
I’m worried that future bulk imports for this organization could run into the same problem. Is there a way to script in the population of the Submitter ID field for these records, based on the name of the managing researcher, so we can avoid this issue going forward?
