  1. Don't use military time on report

    I have had to really stay on top of my son's sleeping pattens this past month. The Report feature has been a HUGE tool to sharing that information with doctors. EXCEPT, when they ask, "what time did he go to bed?" I check my report and say "19:45pm" (LOL). Then I do the quick conversion in my head and say "7:45pm" The idea of the "report" is to NOT have to "think" because Birdhouse has done all of the "thinking" for me. It's a minor flaw, but it would help. Just a suggestion.

  2. The MOOD graph is useless, here's why..

    Every "MOOD" has a HAPPY face. So, for example, when you want to see a Report of your childs moods for the week, he looks pretty darn "happy" all the time. You really need to change the emoicons to different faces other than just a smiley face. Otherwise, the reports graph is completly useless.

    Absolutely.
    This is a challenging one. We used to have different faces for the moods and it was great and really fun. As we started adding more moods, it took a lot longer to add them if we wanted to have matching faces for each one. We decided that, for the time being, it would be better to add new mood options faster and eliminate the faces issue until we could handle it more efficiently.

    Have you clicked the ‘Show Advanced Filters’ checkbox, yet?
    It’s not a perfect solution, but this will give you another chart that will allow you to show/hide the specific mood types, so you could include only positive or negative ones on the graph, or only a specific mood, and this would allow you to know what the smily face represents, for the time being.

    Or you can scroll down to the Data table and check…

  3. Put two Activity types on the chart and see how they relate to each other

    If you have a problem with Poop or potty training and want to see what you can do to handle it better, one idea would be to put Poop on the chart and see what times it usually happens and/or what days it usually happens. Is there any kind of pattern that you didn't know?
    Perhaps put another activity type up and see if there is any kind of relationship. Maybe they always poop within 30-40 minutes after a nap, or after a therapy?

    You could try similar things with other problem areas, or other successes, to see how you…

  4. It were accessible to Autistic persons who wish to self-regulate.

    I'm an Autistic adult who'd like some sort of app that would help me keep track of this sort of thing on my own. Birdhouse is amazing, but sometimes I feel a little condescended by it since it's geared towards parents of Autistic kids.

    This is great feedback.
    I’m so sorry to hear that it gives you a condescending tone.
    We started with making the tool focused on adults looking after kids, as that was our personal need and what we knew best. We are trying to do a GREAT job at that before diverting our attention.
    That being said, we are also always looking for ways to make changes and learn more about how to accommodate more people who would like to use the tool.
    If you would like to send us a private message at owl@birdhousehq.com and share more specifics about what parts make you feel condescended to, how you currently use it that is helpful, and what are some changes we could make that would make it even more helpful, we’d love to hear about it and think about how when can incorporate that feedback into our plan.

  5. It all looks great to me re. report

    I like the idea how I can choose what I would like to have included in the report and also how it shows up in the top graph. Good idea, in that case one can see at what times in the day meltdowns occur usually, but in my case the graph does not seem to reflect the true time of the event, otherwise displayed correctly in the report at the end.

    Absolutely! Great idea.
    This is definitely on our list. We have a few other big things in line ahead of it that I think you’re gonna like, but we will definitely get to this after that. We will update the status here as we get closer, so you know when it’s coming.

  8. Locating others in our area...

    My husband is in the Air Force and as such we have had to move to a new area several times. Each time I've wished there was an "E Harmony" for families of special needs children. Specifically to identify and match with families that have similar challenges.

  9. Differentiate current and ended nutrition schedules visually in the nutrition list

    When changing the dose for a nutrition, there is a popup that explains how to keep the history by setting an end date for the current dose and creating a new schedule with the new dose.

    It would be nice if the lines with end dates in the past had different formatting in the nutrition table.

    In the following picture, one of the highlighted lines has an end date in the past and the other one is current, but that is not obvious. Maybe the ended line could be stroke through or colored with a lighter gray to make it…

  11. Problems with medication name auto-complete

    When entering a letter into the "medication name" input on the "Post new activity" form, an auto-complete dropdown appears. There are two bugs with this in my opinion:

    1) Any medication that contains the entered letter(s) is listed in the dropdown. E.g. entering "M" matches "Kids vitamines". I find it unlikely that this is what the user wanted and would suggest to only match medications starting with the entered letter(s), as opposed to containing them anywhere. (Expressed in SQL: ... WHERE medicationname LIKE 'M%' ... instead of ... WHERE medicationname LIKE '%M%').

    2) Medication names that are on…

    You can now use the category Sensory, either in your list or accessed by using ‘Something Else’

    As you add different descriptions of sensory interventions or seeking behaviors or whatever details you are documenting, they will pre-populate.

    Then you can graph them in reports, see total counts during different periods, get a review of them sent in your weekly and monthly email summaries, and more.

    Let us know what you think and how we can make these more effective for you!

  13. Include duration for all activities

    Please include a way to document a duration (or an end time that calculates the duration) for an activity. Type, scope, duration and frequency of caregiver assessments, judgements, interventions are critical things we track.

    Great suggestion.
    We definitely understand how crucial these pieces are and what a valuable addition to the tool they will be.
    It is a big undertaking to properly implement these in a “smart” way so they can be applied to all of the different ways that people use this type of system, but we are working on it right now and it’s going to be a magnificent and empowering solution when we start to roll out these changes.
    I wish I could say we’ll have this available right away, but it’s on it’s way. Hopefully what we have is helpful to some degree without them, and I look forward to hearing how you like the solution we come up with when it becomes available.

    If there’s any way we can help with anythign else, in the interim, of course, always let us know.

    :-)
