Dear OF Team,

for a complex biodiversity assessment, I would like to record individuals according to higher taxon levels, i.e. order. Up to now, this seems not possible with the existing species list format or am I missing something? Is there a workaround e.g. via an additional code list that I am not aware of?

Thank you for hints that can point me in the right direction!

Dear Alex,
Is it possible for you to use a simple code attribute to store the genus? Or do you need to select genus, family, species in the same taxon attribute?
Can you give us some more details?
Please let us know. Thanks.

Thank you!

I have stored the order in a simple additional code list. It seems to work fine that way!
