Validating as you go

The great advantage of validating records that you have just sent to the BSBI Database, is that, even if you have a big validation backlog – it won’t get any bigger!

It works well with the little-and-often approach to data entry and synching that we advocate and is much preferable to an end-of-season splurge! It prevents a huge build-up of records that require validation for Atlas 2020. It also has the advantage that if queries arise, you are more likely to remember the answers.

Here is some simple guidance on how to go about it. (Two sides of A4).
