Let’s get started adding list totals to the database:
The first thing you’ll see at the main listing view is a screen of basic choices:
Clicking one of the list choices wil pop up a second box with those lists:
At this point, you can click the “Edit Your List” button at the top-right of this new box:
Clicking inside the box will activate the text field (indicated when it glows blue), and you can enter your total. Note that for areas that have abbreviations, there will be a pop-up tool-tip, so you don’t have to remember what all of them mean.
Also notice the check-box next to each text field. Clicking this indicates that you did not include heard-only species, and on the display page is indicated with this icon:
The system saves as you make each keystroke, so there’s no need to click a “save” button or wait for the page to refresh. After a few minutes of getting used to this, you’ll find adding and editing your totals a “total breeze”!
