I think it is really a need for a correct all-in-one chart.
I mean, a chart that would show all the people from the same generation, in the same generational level. Of course, this would make some long format charts, but it is more correct and many users would use it !
Wanted, a simple way to wade through the countless name-specific 'FAMILY TREE SITES' urgently needs investigation. Smart-Matches have recently cut through the same to find me appreciating two now proven links hereto unknown! If I could enter a sought name and basic details where it was crunched to reduce it to a few possibles, that would save hours of needless work? Encouraging Members to specify key Name/s and or Locations in Tree-Titles would go a long way towards this as 'knowns' might just link and reduce search perhaps?
Is it possible to list ALL additions or modifications individually instead of "7 others"? This would definitely help viewers know who is new; otherwise new people or adjustments would be overlooked very easily. I would appreciate a response.
It would be EXTREMELY beneficial if the Smart Matching icons would "gray out" in the family tree if there are no Smart Matches pending confirmation.
This way it would be easy to know that I have already confirmed/rejected all Smart Matches for a particular individual while I'm working on the family tree. It would also make it very recognizable when a new Smart Match for that person has been found (the icon would be green again).
This would help me tremendously as I am constantly searching for new leads for particular individuals.
It's easy enough to create a task and add it to a person, but when I want to create a list of tasks, Family Tree Builder frustrates me.
1) Custom Report
Reports > Export custom report...
PROBLEM: When i click on Selected fields and then press Select, I am presented with a dialog box with a list of field names. Tasks is not included in the list.
SOLUTION: Add Tasks to the list of fields.
2) Task Export
Edit > Export to Excel > Export list of tasks
PROBLEM: The name of the person associated with the task is is not included. The only way to identify the tasks is a mysterious column named ID 1 T EN. This must be an identification number unique to each individual task, but it is useless as there isn't any association with a person in the project.
As a workaround, when I created the task, I put the name of the person in the Title field.
SOLUTION: Change the name of the ID 1 T EN column. Name it something like Task Number so that it cannot be confused with the record number of a person. Most importantly, include seperate columns for First Name and Last Name.
3) Interface Improvements
Improvements should be made to the interface to display tasks.
One way is to include a field for Tasks in the List view on the left-hand side of the main window.
Another way would be to include a button in the taskbar to create a list of tasks in the main window. The user could then choose to save or print.
I am sorry for your inconvinience, but the activities pages are currently not available on our site. (You still can view the articles, which you've added to your site a few months ago, but can't add any new activities)
We currently don't support thos pages, as we are working on improving and developing various features for the family site, and we'll let our users know, once we'll release new features for MyHeritage.com site.
I would like to be able to Synchronize what was added to the web site with my Family tree builder file on my computer. This would allow me to work with the information on my computer and upload again to the website. When pics are added to the website and not my file then I can only tag and move them around on the web page and not my file. This makes it difficult to keep strait what is on my file and what is on my site. So when you open your project file it should look to the site and ask if you want to import updates then after you work with them in the builder software it would publish back to the site and both would be in sync.
