Update to Naming New Individuals

In which Wildbook did the issue occur?

What operating system were you using? (eg. MacOS 10.15.3)
Windows 10Pro

What web browser were you using? (eg. Chrome 79)

What is your role on the site? (admin, researcher, etc)

What happened?
During matching process of bulk upload, the naming convention is off. To name a new individual, it only now gives me the option to assign “00X” rather than our conventional naming scheme (eg. loi235). Is there a way to ensure that our naming schemes are following when data is upload in this way?

What did you expect to happen?
Previously when we would upload data and name a new individual, we would get the option to name the individual with the location name from the metadata.

What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue?
Upload data and go to the match page.

hi @jenna - i should have a fix up on giraffespotter for this problem now. basically, we had made some changes in the way we defined which locations used the prefix-number naming format. if you want to double-check the locations which i fixed, you can see the modifications here. (and it did include Loisaba.)

below is the matching interface showing the change now - but do let us know if you still see problems.


Hi, @jenna !

Can I confirm with you that this been resolved.

For posterity, the ticket to which the above work is attached is WB-1937.
