I would like to disable SmartMatch showing up on "members site" - both the link to SmartMatch in left menu and activating SmartMatch in main window.
I am administrator and have rejected members to update - but it can create a lot of "noise" if members suddenly activate SmartMatch and a lot of matches shows up - specially if they are just looking for fun without knowing the details of the MyHeritage program or genealogy.
The most frustrating part is they have not removed the lead-ins to them. You can still click to add recipes and links to sites because they leave that on the site but then it doesn't happen. You may spend a lot of frustrating time (like I did) trying to figure out how to get them to work. I finally contacted support and more than a day later they finally got back to me to say that those are no longer available.
You have to wonder what else they cut out, left remnants to get you frustrated, and are not letting the paying customers know about taking those services away.
We are in the process of changing the site in order to make it more convenient and user friendly. We added some new features, however other features, such the recipes page were removed. We did not complete this facelift yet, and therefore there may be some links in the site, such as in the settings that mention these features.
Now the recipe and links features appear to be working. But do they work for everyone? Why do they work now? How long will they work? Was anybody told that they were being removed in the first place and was anybody told that they would now be working again? Why doesn't anybody associated with the site respond or communicate? Why do they think that dealing with customers like this is a good thing?
Right click on your card, goto Spouses -> Add spouse - if you don't already have her in the database - or Attach spouse if she is already listed. You will get a message to say you already have a spouse. Are you sure you want to add another spouse? Click Yes and add as normal.
The usefulness of this site would be greatly improved when trying to prove smart matches if there was a link to the source of the information that proves a fact that is given. While trying to prove a match many that I am given only contain maybe a birth year with no indication of where that information was found, some contain no place. That way I can see where fellow reasearchers have proof. If they have none I can dismiss the match. It would also give me information that I can research to see if what they have found is actually true.
The smart matches themselves only offer the most basic of dates. However, many websites allow guests, and in those cases you can visit the website containing the match. There you may find additional information conecerning the person in question.
I myself am frequently offering original documents as sources on my website. To this end, I add URLs as comments to a person's record. Unfortunately, MyHeritage doesn't recognize web addresses in records yet, and therefore doesn´t convert them to hyper-links. This would be a very useful feature to have.
I have found that the tree view in Smart Matches has more information to the left of the screen- however a link to the source would be the best option, and opening in a pop up window- would allow you to keep the original on screen, the problem with original documents, in most cases they are on web sites that require a fee, and so the links might not always work.
우연치 않게 myheritage 사이트를 알게되었습니다.
참 유용한고 좋은 점이 많은 것 같아요...
저는 한국에 살고 있습니다.
한국 풍습은 양력 기준이 아닌 음력 기준으로 생일 및 사망일을
현재 myheritage사이트에 가족을 등록할 경우 양력기준으로 되어 있어
한국인이 가족가계도를 만들때 생일 및 기일을 정확하게 표기 하기 어렵습니다.
예를 들어 제 생일은 음력 1월 8일 입니다.(2011년 양력기준 2월10일)
양력으로 계산하면 매년 날짜가 틀려집니다.
양력, 음력 으로 날짜를 선택 입력할수 있도록 해주셨으면 정말 감사하겠습니다.^^
I have a male in my tree who has been married 3 times and divorced twice. Even though the website where I make changes has dotted lines to the 2 appropriate ex-wives, the chart still shows a solid line to the 2 wives (making him appear to be married to 2 women). The entries are all correct, it just shows up incorrectly in the descendents chart. What am I doing wrong or is this a limitation of the program? Thanks, Barbara
