Things you can't do on the mobile app

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to check on a few things that as far as I can tell can't be done on the mobile (iPhone) app to see if I'm just missing something:

 

Put caches on the ignore list

Put caches on the watch list

Report that a cache needs maintenance

 

Also, related question: So whenever I have a DNF, I'd like to get notifications if someone else logs it so I can see if it's back in service, etc. I'm guessing the "watch list" would do just that. Via the app, since I can't see a way to add to the watch list, I made a custom "DNF" list, but I son't see a way to get notifications of any logs on the caches I put on this list either.

 

I know there's the option to "open in browser" but that doesn't count as being able to do it in the mobile app.

On the Geocaching® app

  1. On the cache details page, tap the ellipsis menu (⋯) on iPhone and the vertical ellipsis menu (⋮) on Android.
  2. Select Report a Problem.
  3. Select Needs Maintenance or Needs Archived.
  4. Explain the issue in your log text, and post your log.  

 - As per the Help Center.

 

AFAIK both the ignore and watchlist are open in browser, and I like it that way.

 - Sort of an "app not meant to replace everything from the site" kinda thing.   :)

I only have "Add to list, personal note, share" and the "add to list." HOWEVER, thanks to this post, I did just notice that at the very bottom of the cache info page there is a "report problem with this geocache" where you can request maintenance or archiving! So one down!

To address this question of yours, you can activate notifications if you visit the Lists page on a web browser.  Just move this slider and then you'll get an email notification every time someone logs a cache that's on that list:
