Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): When I use the bulk uploader, there is usually some order I choose for the sequence of observations added. For instance I often group together uploads of a given genus or family in the same upload. In a recent upload of eight observations (see the Scopariinae moths from Aug. 9-12 in the link above), I had carefully grouped observations of each species together and for multiple uploads of a species, there were multiple days which were arrayed sequentially in the uploader. However, the outcome of the upload in the Your Observations grid view was quite scrambled (see screen shot). I had hoped to keep my sets of species observations together as viewed in the grid for ease of comparison (e.g. side by side) but that’s not the way it turned out.
Is there some uncontrolled timing or random sequencing of a set of observations during the upload process? Why aren’t the observations uploaded in the sequence I set? Is this something I just shouldn’t expect to work?
