Description of problem:
When I export a CSV file of observations and request to include ‘field:captive/cultivated’, the field is always blank.
The above screenshots were taken from a very simple export query, i.e.
As expected, this simple export returns a single observation. Although the observation is marked in iNaturalist with a ‘thumbs down’ next to ‘Organism is wild’, the captive/cultivated field is blank in exported CSV.
Maybe does blank mean that it wasn’t marked as such? I haven’t done testing on this but that would make sense.
Hi @chris_nelson, you’re selecting a community-added observation field by checking that box. It doesn’t look like the observation you linked to has that observation field, or any others, attached to it:
No need to select any special observation fields when trying to identify whether an exported observation was marked as “not wild” / “captive/cultivated”. The column in the exported csv is included by default in all exports. On the export page it’s under the “Basic” section. In the csv it will be called “captive_cultivated” with values true and false:
Oh, I see it now. Thanks, Cassi!
