Mobile iNaturalist Displaying Diferent Totals Than Web-based

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): iOS + Website

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

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

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages:

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.): App is accurately representing my total observations for CNC-2024 but Website is not. I should have 361 total observations for CNC Indianapolis. Please advise. See screenshots below.


you have 45 observations that have geoprivacy set to private. so that’s the difference. (theoretically, if observations are private, randos shouldn’t be able to tell if these are based in Indianapolis or not.)

i’m not sure how you’re viewing the web numbers. so i can’t tell you if there’s actually a bug here or not.

Yes, it would help to have a weblink, but I agree that the private observations are almost certainly the issue here.

Maybe when you are logged in on the app there’s something that allows you to see your own observations as part of a project (since a project is essentially a saved search)?
