Re: proposed status abbrev for designation reporting - feedback required
Within the designation reporting in Recorder you can choose to use short names and long names etc, these are however very long (particularly when concatenating the information). The abbreviation option would be extremely useful but is currently not populated in the database and therefore cnnnot be used in reporting.
Following several recent requests I have created a spreadsheet with a first draft of proposed abbreviations.
Following further discussion with colleagues I have updated this since posting the original post - here is the latest verison (V3): http://forums.nbn.org.uk/uploads.php?file=Abbreviations%20-%20SpeciesDesignationsV3.xls - the proposed abbreviations are in yellow column.
This is your chance to contribute to the deisgnation reporting to make it work better for you - what do you think - can you understand them? Hav eyou any other more logical suggestions for any of the designations? All comments welcome.
