Dear OF Support Team,

according to this question, OF Collect automatically adds predefined codes for unknown (UNK) and unlisted (UNL) the species list. In our survey, it works in the OF Collect survey preview (autocomplete), but in Collect Mobile this cannot be selected, as the autocomplete does neither provide nor recognize the codes.

Thank you for your help!

UNK and UNL are added by Collect's user-interface, not into the actual species list in the database. This same feature does not work in Collect Mobile yet. A temporary solution for Collect Mobile is to add an extra entry to the species list, as follows:

Thanks Lauri,

I assume it would also be possible to have two extra entries in the species list, (e.g UNL1, Nodata, Unlisted sp, and UNK1, Nodata, Unknown sp,) to be able to distinguish between the unknown and unlisted species.

We will use this workaround for the time being!

Thanks again!
