The Identify page in the web interface (in Chrome in my case) dims the tile for each observation as it is reviewed by the identifier. There is a bug where, if the identifier adds a refining ID (such as moving a genus ID to species or a species to subsepcies), the tile is often left un-dimmed.
- Run a search in Identify to bring up a collection of observations that includes some for which you are likely to be able refine the ID.
- Click on an observation to bring up the Identify dialog floating above the collection of observations.
- Navigate through the observations providing IDs as appropriate.
- When you add a confirming ID, this triggers the checkmark next to “Agree” on the observation’s tile in the underlying page to change to spinning arrows. When the update is confirmed by the server, the tile is dimmed to indicate the observation has been automatically marked as reviewed.
- When you add a refining ID (such as suggesting a subspecies), nothing changes on the underlying Identify page.
The result of this is that after an identifier has reviewed 30 observations, only the ones given a confirming ID will be dimmed on the Identify page to indicate that they have been reviewed.
In fact, the actual observation records are updated correctly – it’s only that they don’t show as such on the Identify page.
[Edited 9/1/2020 to clarify that the issue appears to be with refining IDs vs confirming IDs. Previously I had stated that the issue was related to adding infrataxa IDs, but it seems that this was just because those are often refining IDs.]
