Edit Observations page (after creating an observation) is sorted by date added-oldest first

Please fill out the following sections to the best of your ability, it will help us investigate bugs if we have this information at the outset. Screenshots are especially helpful, so please provide those if you can.

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): website

App version number, if a mobile app issue (shown under Settings or About):

Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc) : Chrome

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages: https://inaturalist.ca/observations/teawren

Screenshots of what you are seeing (instructions for taking a screenshot on computers and mobile devices: https://www.take-a-screenshot.org/):

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

Step 1: enter and save an observation

Step 2: Edit Observations page that comes up returns to very first observation ever made

Step 3: If go to My Observations, the observations are there

Note: This started on Monday Aug 1 and continues today on Aug 2. I have made no changes to any settings.

Similar situation as https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/recent-observations-not-showing-under-edit-observations-but-are-in-my-observations/32246[https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/recent-observations-not-showing-under-edit-observations-but-are-in-my-observations/32246]

If you click to sort by Date Added so that more recently added observations appear at the top of the list instead of the oldest ones, does that setting stick for you?



I will check that the next time I upload an observation and get back to you with a response. I’m wondering though, why it would have changed by itself?

Not sure! I just tested creating an observation and mine still shows recently added observations first.


Have tried it twice now and it does seem to have worked.
Thanks for your help.
