Why only year instead of a full date (yymmdd)

Why is there not a full date but only a year ? I always need a date so i really can not figure out why one should choose a year

That’s just the site giving you a rough approximation of how long ago the observation was made. If you click on the obs you should see the exact date and time, and also if you hover the mouse over “7y”.


You can also click on List view to see more information about each observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&subview=table&user_id=ahospers&verifiable=any

Grid view is designed to emphasize photos rather than information.


…and if you want to, you can filter by year/month/day:

For example: &year=2018&month=4&day=19

If it was for photos it should show photos.
But it does not …80% has no photo

It would be much better if it just showed the observations.
But it does not
I want to show all dates from 2010 till 2020 and show all countries and seasons.
