  1. Medication time alert

    I use other apps solely for med time reminders. I get a notification to ensure I don't forget to give my son meds. This comes in handy on weekends or when we're out of the house during regular med time. It would be great to have one on Birdhouse.

    Great suggestion!
    It’s so helpful to hear specifically how this affects you and how you would like it to work.
    We definitely have this on our to-do list and will keep you posted on the progress as there are things to report.

  2. ability to color code the existing activity symbol + customize activity name/symbol

    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…

    Great suggestion/feedback.
    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.

  3. More than just Therapists

    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. Alternating Schedule

    It would be able to have therapists that are on a alternating schedule in the therapist area, without having to add them a second time.
    Example, our music therapist we see Wednesday one week and then Thursday the next.

  7. therapist times

    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.

  8. 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…

  9. Collect notes when the person you're caring for spends time with someone else

    If/when you know they will be with someone else– a friend, caregiver, family member, etc– you can create and use an Activity Type called 'Visit' to log an upcoming activity, and use the person's name in the description.

    This would record at least that your care recipient was with them during that time, and then you can try to make a point of always having notes in there about their time together.

    This way if you see one that is blank, it might serve as a reminder to ask them about it, and even if you don't have notes, you'd…

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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!

  16. 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…

  17. Biweekly

    Is it possible to add biweekly (every other week) to the" when: tab" for therapists? My daughter sees her OT every other week. Thanks!

    To help identify patterns of behavior as they correlate to weekends vs weekdays please make the weekend column a different color.

  19. Reminder to drink more water

    Wish you remembered to drink more water? I did.
    So I made an email reminder in my Birdhouse to email me twice a day at times when I should be reminded to drink water if I haven't been.
    I'm not actually recording the water, but just seeing the email with the fun subject line I wrote helps to remind me and to keep my good habit going in those times when I'm slacking.
    I feel so good about it; it's one of those little things that I am so grateful for.

  20. 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.
