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.
Please view the following FAQ post about this feature:
Yeah, guys, I do not think this is hard to make, but it will be quite useful for everyone. I would also like not to have a 1-2 days email notification about the event, but all the data to export to my Google Calendar. Please, think it over and maybe you can put some kind of survey or poll on that?
A further enhancement for me, would be the ability to print a monthly calendar of all birthdays, anniversaries, and other dates, with the choice of which types of events to display. Also being able to choose whether to print for living or deceased relatives would be desirable.
Features to the calendar print would also be the ability to add photos of each relative on the date of the birthday, or a collage of photos of all relatives with birthdays in a month, as a picture page of the calendar.
I second Tahir's suggestion. I would also like to have the possibility to at least export myheritage events in iCal format, so that I can add them to my regular calendaring programs. It would be even better if I was able to subscribe directly to my myheritage event calendar, so that any changes that are made in myheritage would automatically be updated in my other calendars.
Thank you for your reply and interest in my question.
The Dynastree surname list had only surnames, ie Last Names. In Dynastree it was called "Surnames in My Family." For example in January 2009 it said that I had 764 different last names and 2316 relatives.
I believe one could then click on a surname for more details.
Unfortunately, at one point, Dynastree began to modify what it meant by "in my family." If at all possible I would like the list of surnames to be as complete as possible for the whole tree. In my case for all 4600 people and one dog, as of July 2011.
Later of course, it may be nice to have a list of surnames that summarizes a specific chart or report as selected from your current products. For example one could generate a list of surnames of all the ancesters of a given individual.
FTB really is the best. I have tried them all, even Ancestry's FTM, which is use only for an off line backup. FTB just visually works better than anything out there. FTB has info right in the persons box when expanded, much more visually efficient than listing names in vertical bars, with info in another panel off to the right, and big KUDOS !! for putting in the To Do List Management on v 5.x. I was one of those who made the suggestion, and you made that feature way more powerful than I was imagining, and Green check mark icon, SO, SO useful. I don't have to dig through notes, rereading to see if I'm really done with a record.
Now, how about those extra purpose icons, like some way to place upt to may 4 custom icons, which could mark anything like military veteran, to color coded paths through the trees.
All my offline work for past 3 years as been with FTB. Great Job Development Team, management, buy them some beer :)
