The Tasks function would be a great function if it would be easier to add people to the tasks instead of one at a time. Today the only report of tasks is a list of tasks not which people there are in the tasks.
So my whishlist:
Possibility to add multiple persons to a task
Possibility to make a list of persons meeting some criteria in task (not started, started, finished etc)
It is when I add people I would like it to be possible to select more than one at the time. Now I have to select one person and add that, go back select another then add and so on. It would be better if I could select all people I want at once and then add.
You can add photos to a marriage in Family Tree Builder. Click on Edit in the marriage status box, and in the Main tab you will see a Photos button, in which you can view and associate photos to the marriage and the couple.
I like many people use FTB to maintain my Family Tree. I then publish it onto the web. If you use this method then no one can make changes to the web version.
It would be great if they could make changes and then have these "suggested" changes come back to FTB (via the publish interface). Then in FTB have a list of these changes received and allow them to be selectively applied or rejected to the FTB database.
In FTB you could even show a person had some pending "web" changes with an icon similar to smart matches or research icons.
At the moment people send me emails which is not very efficient.
We are working to improve the synchronization between the Family Tree Builder program and your family site,
and to improve the controll a site manager has for the information added by his site members.
I can understand that adding your site members' information manually in the Family Tree Builder is not the best way to collaborate, so please let me know if you prefer to edit your tree online, in your site for now (you can always return to the Family Tree Builder).
Thank you for your new feature suggestion; We value your input greatly and have already implemented many of your ideas at MyHeritage.
I agree with Steven completely.I too operate the same way.I would love it that site members could edit and add information at the website,but that notification would come back to me to approve or disapprove,before adding to FTB.
I`m sure this was suggested by other users back in the 1999.
In addition, sending back web info to FTB for Smartmatches confirmed could be included in scope if possible, as today, you have to repewat this task twice, once on the web, once in FTB, or I'm doing something wrong.
I definitely want to use FTB to edit my website and I understand why in that case you currently don't allow members to update via the web version. I'm just saying it would be nice to have the option to receive update requests from the web back to FTB so I can include/merge if I choose.
I look forward to seeing the interface improvements in the future.
I agree with Steven, a feature like that would faciliate the updates and growth of the tamily tree. We are more than one genealogist in our family and it would be great if we could cooperate via the Family site even though we prefer maintaining the tree from the FTB.
Just to let you know. I had talk with many people i Denmark how would like this function.
I like FTB very much to master admin. all family information, and the help of familie members to apply change and add new informations via thefamilie webpage would be great.
We look forward to see this function implimentet in FTB
We need a better way to display our own posts. Currently the only way is to search for your name but this does not work very well. If I search for my own name Steven Fox I get no posts. If I search for Steven then I get mine plus other people.
I think it would be good to have a button on the forum main page that would display all the posts that the logged on person had posted.
Sometimes a member has many trees which all say the same thing. I may want to confirm one and ignore all the others. How about a button that allows you to ignore a match without viewing it first? Just one less step we would have to take for no good reason.
Please note, that currently there is no such option - as Smart Matches feature is designed to allow you review all the possible smart matches, and be able to confirm or reject any match if you will find any additional, interesting information.
However, I can suggest you to use the option to ignore a spesific family tree from your smart matches list- and this way - you won't see any smart mathces results from this tree.
