I am a special education teacher. I would like to be able to have a graph that tracks date vs accuracy for goals.5 votes
Excellent suggestion. Have you played with our current Reports page at all yet?
Is it possible to add biweekly (every other week) to the" when: tab" for therapists? My daughter sees her OT every other week. Thanks!2 votes
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.3 votes
Thank you for sharing your request. We will take that under consideration in our planning.
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.2 votes
We absolutely agree
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.3 votes
We definitely will ad this, although I don’t have a timetable, at the moment.
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.1 vote
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
more therapies and a food list and a section to flie the ieps and treatment plans1 vote
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.1 vote
This is now available on the web, and will be coming to mobile in the next update (coming soon ;)
Try it out and let us know what you think!

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.6 votes
We agree, this feature is very important and is something we are currently working to provide. We’ll update this as we make progress on it.
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.7 votes
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.
Developmental checklists by age that can be updated when the child progresses to the next level. This could be helpful to assist in goal writing.

Would like to have the ability to set multiple sessions at different times for a single therapist. For example: speech on Monday at 11:00 and on Thursday at 2:30.4 votes

This sounds interesting.
Would you mind elaborating on how this would work or what you want to be able to do with it and why?

Section for CBT and DBT skills
breathing, counting, ABC's, singing, things that the child has been taught to assist in calming down5 votes
You can now create a category for these things on the More page on the web, and then they will be added to your Activities list, and you can then record what happens and when.
If you have questions, please ask at firstname.lastname@example.org

I'd like a different term for the category "Therapists", maybe Care Team or just Contacts. I would like to keep contact information for everyone involved in my child's care, not just therapists; teachers, caregivers, doctors, etc.5 votes
We now have some options for doing this.
Shoot us a message at email@example.com if you’d like to change the name of your category and/or any other details.

I have ASD child who has poop accidents (not done in the toilet but elsewhere) once every now and then, but there is only one 'poop' symbol to use for both regular poop and poop accident. and this is inconvenient on the report because I can't tell how many times she had poop accidents out of all the poops done within a week or month or etc.. so if there was an option to use different color on the same 'poop' symbol, it'll help us to easily see on the graph where/when she had the poop accident and when she didn't. And this goes for any other activity categories that can be for good and the bad (i.e., mood - can be good or bad.. or meltdown is obviously bad so no need to color code its symbol..or it can still color code for severity of the meltdown and etc..)
plus, 'other' is too general.. and can be so many 'other' things and it doesn't really help much on the reports (since 'other' graph can mean so many things that you wouldn't know until you read notes under each 'other' symbol shown on the graph.. so if there was a way for us to create our own activity name, and possibly choosing symbols from a preset list of more symbol options?)

We are working on a wonderful version of this that I think you are going to love.
In the meantime, one detail that might help you;
In the Reports section, if you select Other and the click the checkbox below that says ‘Show Advanced Filters’, there will be a chart that shows your various types of Other, and you could select just one or two specific ones you wanted graphed/included in your export data, like ‘Poop accident’
I hope this helps.
We can’t wait to see how you like the new stuff we are working on.
Great idea to add. Listing details of

To make a grid & be able to add data at ur fingertips.This would be a great Tool to have.19 votes
We will keep these in mind as we continue to evolve the product.
I would love to see an example of what you mean by ‘make a grid and add data’. Do you already have something like this you’d like to be able to do and update with Birdhouse that we could see? How do you do this system?
You can email us details at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a teacher for young children with developmental delays and disabilities, I would love to be able to use my IPAD while I'm in the classroom to track for multiple children but I have not come across a Birdhouse IPAD app, am I missing something or is there any possibility of this? Thanks2 votes
Hi Megan, that’s a great suggestion. We’d LOVE to build an iPad app and eventually we will, but for the time being we are focusing our efforts on making our iPhone and Android apps as great as they can be.
That being said, you can certainly use the iPhone app on your iPad (and for that matter, an Android app on an Android tablet or Kindle), with just a few extra steps.
Below is a quick article on how to download our iPhone app to your iPad. It may not be 100% ideal, but it’s definitely better than nothing at all and many people enjoy it :-)
Hope to have a better answer for you sooner than later!
