    • 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.

      • 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. :)

              • Simple Report Types (for me) and more so for my Kid's Doctor

                1. Export is NOT working for me. Sure I can export to excel and also to word..BUT..unfortunately it just shows formatting errors. Much better to export into a .pdf which can then be emailed to my kid's therapist?. 2 Better still, if the export could create a LINK which the therapist could click and view the report generated by me? 3. Can we do line graphs and piecharts..yeah not as cool as funny face icons, but great for Left brain types :-(

                • can't seem to do much on the mobile app version compared to desktop website version

                  i'm a newbie so please forgive me if i have missed out features.. but I just found the mobile app version missing a lot of the features available on the desktop website version even as a premium user.
                  like unable to check if scheduled medication has been given, or seeing reports, and etc. And there's no 'more' tab, or other option tab that allows me to go to other sections/features available on desktop version birdhouse, like profile, export data and etc.
                  ..which also reminds me.. is there option to export data in different formats other than csv? not sure what…

                      Great suggestion!
                      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 owl@birdhousehq.com

                    • 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…

                        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.

                        • 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.

                            • 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…

                              • 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 medication_name LIKE 'M%' ... instead of ... WHERE medication_name LIKE '%M%').

                                2) Medication names that are on several different…
