Our bait stations (hockey stick) have 10 bait blocks inserted. We have not been using the phone app to document adding blocks into the bait stations due to what I think is a major bug. This has been reported months ago but nothing has been done to fix the error, so I am reporting it again with I hope more evidence.
The first issue is there is no option to add block numbers, only weight. I understand this is being worked on as a new feature. To simplify documentation, we treat each block a 1 gm, 10 gms in total. I am using the ‘Manual Update’ option in the app, but I’m sure the problem also exists in the ‘Walk Line’ option.
When setting the Line Walk Defaults for the Hockey stick, I set Bait added to 0, Note there is no default for Bait remaining, which I think is also an issue. There are 11 bait stations, and none needed to have bait added so this should have been recorded as 0
After completing the trap line check, I logged into the web app at home to check the results. What I should hope to see is Bait added 0g and Bait remaining .010g. However for each record I see bait remaining .000kg, Removed .000kg, Added ‘blank,’ and Bait taken .010kg
If I edit the record to try to correct this, I can change Bait remaining to .010kg but there is no option to change Bait taken, it remains at .010kg.
The only way to correct this is to delete the record and add a new one recording just Bait remaining as .010kg
Hopefully the images I have uploaded show the problem clearly.
So as it stands we can use the phone app to update trap data and it works well, but we have to record bait station updates manually and update the records using the web app when we can get access to a computer, normally when we return home. This needs to be fixed in order to use the phone app as it should be used, to avoid time and effort updating data using the web app.
