In which Wildbook did the issue occur?
What operating system were you using? (eg. MacOS 10.15.3)
macOS Sierra 10.12.6
What web browser were you using? (eg. Chrome 79)
1.) When submitting an encounter while not logged in: An email address is
added to the “Submitter” email field. When the encounter is submitted,
the email shows up on the encounter page, but the user is not notified
via email when the encounter is matched to an individual.
2.) After submitting the encounter initially (while not logged in) the submitter email receives an email that an encounter was submitted and a blue link to the encounter is provided. However, when I click on the blue link it does not take me to the encounter, Flukebook is telling me I must log in to see my submitted encounter.
What did you expect to happen?
1.) The owner of the submitter email address to be notified when the encounter
is matched to an individual.
2.) To click on the link and be taken to the encounter I submitted without having to log in. Citizens who are submitting photos to see if they have seen a known individual will not have log ins to Flukebooks and therefore will never see their photos getting matched.
What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue?
While not logged in, submit an encounter and fill out the submitter email
address with an address you have access to. Match your test encounter
to a name Individual animal, and see that you receive no email.
