Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): I have made many personal lists on my profile. when I make an observation of a new species that I had not observed before, however, it will no longer update saying it is observed on my lists. I used to resolve this issue by clucking Edit Taxa then selecting all and saving the list. this no longer fixes the issue and it seemed to happen around the same time as the Dynamic Life List was launched though I dont know if the two are connected.


It sounds you’re using an old life list, it’s buggy, you better use a new one, linked when you open list pages:

I do not mean my life list, I mean the custom lists of species we can make such as these:

Sorry.So, what exactly it doesn’t say that you call “not observed”? If you mean it shows no observations from you when you add a species, you need to click on edit of taxon and refresh it. If it’s something else, please clarify (maybe add screenshots if you can). Anyway old lists are as buggy as old life list.

Yes it shows no observations after I have added a species. Even after I go to Edit Taxa and update and refresh the species it will not show as obsereved in the list. I used to be able to solve this problem that way, but it no longer works.


@tiwane could you please help us, was it changed and if so, what users are supposed to do now?

If there was a ‘Refresh’ button like there is for species checklists on Place pages that would solve the issue.
