  1. Tracking Accuracy on a Graph

    I am a special education teacher. I would like to be able to have a graph that tracks date vs accuracy for goals.

  2. Color coded events?

    It would be great if we could color code the events. That would help be able to differentiate between behaviors at a glance. I have a student who has his behavior level reported every half hour. It would be nice if the colors could correspond to his behavioral chart. (green, yellow or red zone)

    Great suggestion!
    We do plan to offer some customization of labeling with icons and colors, and it’s really helpful to know how these might ideally correlate to another system you use already.

    In the interim, one way you can visually differentiate at a glance is to give each it’s own Activity Type (rather than all under Behavior). If you record them as ‘High Behavior’ – ‘Medium Behavior’ – ‘Low Behavior’ it will not only make for quick logging, but you will get a different icon for each, making them easier to differentiate visually.
    This will also translate to the Reporting options.

    Hope this helps, and thank you for sharing!

  3. I'd like to have a note type for Care Reflection

    Would you like to be able to enter notes about reflection on how things are going with your care, how you are feeling, how far things have come, what you have learned, etc?

  4. Post photos.

    We use a lot of visual feedback for my son. It would be great if I could post photos too.

  6. Update website time picker

    To expedite the process of tracking events on the website, I would like the default time picker to work in increments of 15 minutes following the pattern in the iOS app.

  7. Improve activity creation performance on website

    I primarily use the website to create a series of activities for a period of time (i.e. entering all activities for the morning.) This process is slow in part because the website reloads each time an activity is created and a full webpage load is pretty slow. It would be great if the activity POSTing could occur over AJAX to eliminate the need for a page reload.

  8. I would like it if we could focus on a certain part of the day during reports.

    For example, if I notice a lot of things happening from 1-3, I would like to be able to "zoom" into that time so I can see what all is going on and not be overwhelmed by everything else on the report. I can choose the date range, yes, but I would also like to choose the range for the Y-axis. :)

  9. Add activity for more than one person

    I would love to be able to add an activity for more than one person at a time, for example, when we all eat a meal together, be able to add it to more than one person at a time instead of having to do them individually.

  10. Add the ability to tag entries to more easily correlate them

    It would be great to have the option to add tags to entries like "vacation" or "school" to allow users to link disparate entries together with one searchable term. This will help users find entries that relate to each other and can help identify longer term trends that would be hard to pick out using just activity types. Right now we can do it by adding a keyword to the entries but having it be a tag field that can be clicked on in an entry to search by would make Birdhouse far more powerful in my opinion.

    This is a great suggestion and definitely some we intend to do. We have some more basic things already in the works that have priority, like adding support for attaching files and more, but we’ll definitely get there

  13. Suggestion: change the activity entry type to use the same settings as meltdown

    I've been using Activity entries to track my daughters physical activity to ensure she gets enough exercise. My feedback on using it for this is that it would be great to use the Meltdown Low | Medium | High buttons to record the intensity of the activity and Duration field for Activity entries to give better data about how active the child has been.

  14. Conditions / Body / Injuries

    I'd be curios to hear how people are tracking conditions (e.g., eczema) and things like bruises. My daughter goes in and out of eczema attacks and it's be interested to look at them over time to see if there are correlations to anything.

    Could just add note but wondered if there were activities set up already for conditions and/or injuries.

  16. Collaborator roles and permissions

    I would really like to use this to have my son's care team collaborate more effectively. And, I know that there are some things that I might put in BirdHouse that I would still want private. Could you add in permission levels, either by object (note / file / etc) and/or by user so that I can restrict access to some things?

    For example, if I were to keep track of IEP notes, I might not want my actual IEP team to see everything that I have written.

  17. Need to make it easier to invite collaborators

    I'm trying out Birdhouse and it seems like a great idea. However, it's difficult and confusing to invite a collaborator (for me and for them). I'd like to collaborate with my son's nanny, ABA, OT, etc...but I know that if its not super easy for them to use, they won't do it and I'll be stuck trying to elicit and record their notes.

    Collaboration is a newer feature at the moment, and we are currently in the process of making the process of inviting new collaborators more convenient and straightforward. We’re excited to be able to make this more accessible as this year goes on.
