Taskulaji - A Sailfish OS client for Finnish Biodiversity Information Facility

With Taskulaji you can send observations to the database of Finnish Biodiversity Information Facility and browse information about different species.

  1. Go to: https://login.laji.fi/login?target=KE.389&redirectMethod=GET&locale=fi&n...
  2. Check the box "Pysyvä kirjautuminen"
  3. Log in with your laji.fi credentials
  4. Go to User Management: laji.fi ->  Profiili -> Käyttäjätilini
  5. Log in again with your laji.fi credentials
  6. Find and copy the person token under "Pysyvät kirjautumiset" (it is the long string of random letters and numbers)
  7. In Taskulaji app, go to Profile -> Log in 
  8. Paste the person token in the person token field
  9. Accept

Please comment if you experience problems when using the app.
