MapMate sync results not displayed on DDb

by deltoides » Tue Sep 26, 2017 9:58 am

I replicated >300 SO99P VC39 records to MapMate hub last night. Acknowledged by them at 9.55 p.m., with another positive response from DDb at 9.59. However, results don't appear on DDb.

Hi John,

Yesterday's import worked correctly.
https://database.bsbi.org/search.php#re ... 444aa96a71


The reason the records didn't show-up when you searched was because the search you used was narrowly for 'records from 2017', which would have matched only records that were unambiguously from that year. Your SO99P MapMate records were assigned a broader date range "23/1/2007-16/8/2017". That date range looks like a possible data entry mistake (e.g. if "23/1/2017-16/8/2017" was intended).

The records would be matched by a search using a filter for dates intersecting 2017, searching using 'date to' and matching by end date, e.g.
https://database.bsbi.org/search.php#re ... a9e10cfbbb


If the broad date range is a mistake then it would probably be best to correct it in MapMate and then resync the data. Alternatively the records could be quickly bulk-edited in the DDb, but that would have the drawback of preventing further revisions to this set of data in MapMate (because the DDb copy of the record would be treated as locally 'edited', causing any subsequent revisions in MapMate to be ignored).


best wishes,

Tom
