In addition, the collaboration with the Family Tree Builder is less recommended, because you need to be careful not to overwrite each other's published version of the tree by mistake.
For example, if one manager will publish his edited tree to the site, and the other has already published changes in the same tree before - the second person's changes will be overwritten.
Therefore, the best way to collaborate is by editing your family tree online; Please see the following FAQs on the different types of family trees that you can have, and how to transform your Family Tree Builder tree to a tree that you can edit online:
I was at a relative's over the weekend and wanted to add some information to the tree, but was not allowed to do it. I am the site administrator. I created the tree in the Family Tree Builder, Premium version, and published it to my site.
Is there any way to edit the information when logging in from a different computer? It would have been much easier to put in the information at her house instead of copying every on paper and then putting it in later at home.
Within your Sullivan/Cassidy Web Site on MyHeritage.com, there are two family trees:
1) Cassidy-Sullivan families - GEDCOM tree.
2) James Parker Tree - Web tree.
Both of those trees are editable online, on your family site.
In order to enter your family site, from any other computer, please go to http://www.myheritage.com/ > insert your correct log in details > make sure, that you are logged in under your site administrator account, by checking that your name is shown on the right upper corner of the page (next to My Inbox icon).
However, if you have created and published your family tree from the Family Tree Builder program on your computer, the tree is not editable online, in your website.
(You have to edit and re-publish it each time)
In that case, the most convenient way to be able work on your family tree project from other computers is to convert your family tree project to an online tree project.
If you would like to do so, please let me now, and direct me to the specific tree and site, where this tree is placed.
Please note, that you can add source citations , notes, place of burial and other different facts to all the individauls in your Sullivan/Cassidy GEDCOM tree, by entering your family site > family tree > find the individual in your family tree > view profile > edit profile (under the profile photo) > you can add any source citations or facts, by clcikcing on the "source citations"/"all facts" link > add another fact > choose the preffered fact category, or just add your own fact type.
I'm using Family Tree Builder to build my tree and in the program I have setup my mother to have [first name] [maiden name] [married name]. But in the published version on the website, her names get mixed up, showing [first name] [married name] [maiden name] instead. Why, I don't know, and I can't figure out how to change it either.
I had asked on a previous question why I still have 'post deleted' on my comment list when I delete a post. Usually nothing shows up on the actual board when I delete a post. This time it did, any ideas why?
I publiced my site .when I looked at it i don't see peoples birth dates how can i check to see if I've blocked that information from the web site?
Also sometimes when i look at the site its missing information and family tree people how do I fix this? and when I'm in builder and go to the publish tool in the box with the site name it show a message tree not published ?Im sure it is published ?
My cousin invited me to MyHeritage.com and I am very eager to add as much information as possible to the family tree that she began. I have been made into an administrator on the family tree and I can change settings for it, yet I find I am still unable to edit the tree itself or add relatives to it (I can't even edit my own branch on the tree).
I have found that I can only edit a tree that I build myself; however, this tree contains none of the branches of the family tree created by my cousin.
How can I make it so that I can edit my cousin's family tree?
Francois who wrote below, is indeed correct, that you cannot edit the tree on this site in question, since it was created by your cousin in Family Tree Builder, the software. This means that only your cousin can edit the tree in Family Tree Builder on her computer, and then republish the tree to the site to update the tree that it online.
I suspect that your cousin built his tree using the Family Tree Builder (FTB) software. Trees that have been built in this fashion cannot be edited on-line, not even by the administrator. You can easily verify this. Trees that have been built on-line, have a small plus sign underneath each box. Trees that have been built off-line using FTB don't. If you don't see the plus sign, this means that the tree can only be updated using FTB.
I think that the only way to keep that information completely private from everyone would be to completely leave it all off or to only include the actual birthday without year. Then add the year for people who are dead. Those are all I can think of.
