Create private notes on why I favorited an observation

Currently I fave observations which I want to come back to and look at in more detail at a later stage.

Would we be able to add a reason why I faved it (which only I can see) or notes to jog my memory. Did I just like the ob. or did I vote for it as an observation of the month or do I feel that I can help further with the ID if I ever have time to sit down and work through all my papers and notes. Perhaps also some sort of keyword (which only I can see) to act as a filing system?

Thank you

As I like your idea, I just tested out something.
We have a “journal” on our dashboards.
Just create a new page, copy the url of the observation you want to mark and add a little note.

I just did it with one of my favourites.

As you are in the position to add a title to your entry you could name it: check later.

Okay, it is a bit more complicated, if there is not much time… than mark the favourite itself, but it would be a way to do a list…


Thank you! I like your idea as a work around. I will try.

I have never made a journal post - are they private?

I don’t know, as I am a Newbie…
I assumed that the journals are open readable…

We could try to find out, if we can find the journals.

  • But maybe someone with knowledge will answer.

[Edit]: I could click in some empty journals, saying the standard text, that they aren’t started, yet.
So they seem to be open.

Not private. Those journal posts are published on iNat to be read.

But a place for private notes would be useful.
