Right now the way the identify page works is not very inuitive. This is how it seems like it should work:
- I see 30 observations to identify, and go through them, identifying as I can
- I click on “page 2” when I get to the bottom, or click “skip to next page” when that popup is shown…
- I see the next 30 observations to identify.
But there are some issues with this. This page is not showing me the next 30 most recent observations to ID. Rather, it is recalculating the number of observations that meet the filter criteria, and showing #31-60 of those
As a result:
- If new observations are added while I was identifying, I may now see observations I passed over on page 1 showing up again on page 2.
- Depending on how many observations I reviewed on page 1, I will be skipping that number of observations when I go to page 2. If I hit “review all observations”, going to page 2 will actually show the 30 observations that were originally on page 3
It is not very obvious to the user that this is what is happening. There are some workarounds (refreshing the page after clicking “mark all as reviewed”, or working backwards from the last page), but these are both unintuitive and have some other annoying problems.
I realise that improving this probably isn’t simple on the technical side.
