Topic: Changing the recorders name for a record
Just noting that this process seems to be rather cumbersome in R6 as the name is linked at both Survey Event and Sample levels. I was wondering if there was scope to develop a batch update to replace a recorder that would work from the right-click of the survey event.
Say you have two B. Smiths in your database and you have allocated a record (or several) to the wrong one. The process seems to be
1) Add second B. Smith to survey event
2) Edit sample and click the checkbox next to the new B. Smith and uncheck the one for the wrong B. Smith
3) Re-edit the survey event to remove the wrong B. Smith
Would be great if you could right click a survey event and select a batch update to 'Swap recorder' or similar - a dialog box could ask which one you wanted to swap and let you select the one you wanted to swap it for, then make the appropriate changes to the survey event and sample records.
I know funding for development might be limited but if you don't put in a suggestion...
