Too much data/info on the one page

Comment from Andy_CB8

Hello, I feel that there is now far too much information on the plants' information page for it to be useful — I have to continually search for the information I need, and I feel that the order of the information does not make any sense.

Could you not add tabs at the top which you would click on to get specific info, e.g. Overview, Care, Where to Grow, Defra's Risk register etc to break the info into more manageable chunks.

Button to switch from 'Plants I want' to 'Plants I have'

Comment from Kari Koonin

It would be great to have a quick and easy way to move a plant from 'Plants I want' to 'Plants I have', such as a Move button. At the moment you have to delete from one and re-add to the other when you get that plant you've been longing for!

Identifying Plants

Comment from Julie Macavoy

Would it be possible for the identifying plants area of the forum to show the photos of the plants within the list? This way you can scroll down and if you see something you are familiar with, you can reply. At the moment I have to open each post to see the photos. Also could there be a 'Next post' to go directly to the next plant to be identified?

Mobile version of the website

Comment from Andy_CB8

Hello, I find the mobile version of the website useless and I do not want to use it but you force it on me when I use shoot on my iPad. Please allow me to choose which version I want to see..!

me again - advanced search results sort order

Comment from John Bates

Hello Shoot
Just tried an advanced search using a genue name and not sure how the results are sorted by shoot. Could they be sorted alphabetically by genus, species, variety
That would make sense (to me) when visually scanning the list.

Download plant names - missing data

Comment from John Bates

Some reason download plant names only works with "Plants I have"
If creating a plant list - I'd want to compile list & quantity in "Plants I want" but that seems to generate a blank excel form ?

Soil pH

Question from John Bates

Why do we get this annoying Greece city break advert - if I wanted adverts I'd switch on the TV.

Uploaded photo size

Comment from John Bates

Hello Shoot
Just finding some of the photo's uploaded very small to identify the plants - is there any way of increasing the size of photo's stored. Also can people edit photos once uploaded as often they are side on or upside down - so plant ident is made more difficult.
Regards John

Holding plants

General post from John Bates

Hi Shoot
I'm doing an audit of some gardens and want to add them to shoot. Great where I can ident the plant fully - but I have some plants which I can't identify fully now (perennial not yet in flower or deciduous shrub) & want to add it to the plant list as a holding plant - which I would then swap for the plant once know. Say I can see some Spirea or Potentilla in the garden but the flowers will only be out in a couple of months time. I want the plant list on shoot to reflect what I have ident and also these "not yet identified". Is this possible ? Thanks John
