This article is part of the Marked Birds Database manual and describes how to work with life histories.
For each bird a life history can be stored.
A life history can be added for a bird in the following formats:
- Any file as an attachment
If the life history for a particular bird is always only stored as text, all other fields can be hidden by selecting Show Text Version Only. To have this option automatically set when a bird is created, select Preferences > Features > Auto-set Show Text Version Only.
To keep track of the date when any field in the Life History screen is changed, set a date in the Last Updated field. This will give you an indication how current the added information is. To have this date automatically set, select Preferences > Features > Auto-set Last Received Date.
