    It would be very handy to include a line in the contest menu for SOTA and POTA. It would be nice to be able to sort your log to build user specific ADIF records .

    QRZ conforms with ADIF specification for Contest ID: http://www.adif.org/307/ADIF_307.htm#Contest_ID
    Contact ADIF development group.

    You can sort your log many different ways, select New View in the Viewing pull down menu to build same.

    SOTA is NOT a contest, and has no place in ANY contest menu. POTA? Probably not a contest either.

    I DIDN'T suggest that they were contests!
    However having the ability to label a contact from a drop down menu would be convenient. What the heck is so sacred about the "Contest" menu anyway? I'd wager most, or few log users even utilize it. It's just a drop down tab to allow you to pick a specific event and tag your qso so you can retrieve or group like qso's in the future.
    I understand the "NewView" but when a drop tab is available why not just put a line in to be picked! QRZ is my primary log and I'm just wanting it to be more user friendly! I can just label my SOTA stuff and WFF/KFF stuff some obscure contest label. No problem I guess.
    Thanks Administrator for the quick response and keep up the good work on the site!

    The Contest field is an ADIF Specification field. Adding information that is not in conformance with the ADIF table for that field would result in a non-conformant ADIF file at export.
