    First of all, the new site looks good and seems pretty straightforward.  I was hoping you would have a standard PitPro tagging and interrogation form, so I'm already biased a bit in favor of the new site.  After poking around for an hour or so I do have a couple comments.  I'll also try to provide some justification for why I believe these are important.

    First of all, for the tag site it seems a lookup function (like you have for tag coordinator) would be helpful.  That way, for example, when doing a query for the MARTRP site I could type in MAR instead of having to scroll down upteen pages (or know to put ~500 in the index box).

    The second is in the additional columns (covariates) option in the PitPro Tagging Detail form.  I would like to have the ability to add the Conditional Comments (aka Flags).  This is an important filtering tool for folks working with wild fish.  Flags "0", "PR", and "Y" identify individuals from outside the "typical" brood year of fish being tagged at that time, and I filter out the PRs from my tag files used for survival estimates.   

    Thanks for the opportunity to chime in.

    Thanks for the suggestions. The first was an oversight on my part and has been corrected - you can now search for tagging sites to select them in the filter. 

    Your second suggestion is just the type of thing we want to know. I have added Conditional Comments to the additional columns and to the filter prompts. See the attached screenshot for how you would filter out records that contain the flag code PR.

    Let us know if you have any other suggestions.
