Has there been any progress on this? It seems to me that SmartMatching has become less smart over the past few months.
As other are experiencing I am getting regular matches which have good name agreement - for example I have had several today for Samuel Rudd but the dates are wildly off (200 years), as well as the firstnames of wife, parents and children.
I too recall having the ability to relax/tighten the Smartmatching but can't find the setting now. I was previously satisfied with the default setting but as I said, it is currently considerably time wasting.
I have a backlog of several thousand matches to which I have gradually been inroads - not much chance of making much progress with a slack matching algorhythm.
The only commonalities are the date span and the first name, Elizabeth. Nothing else matches, not surname, not married name, not husband first name, not parents, not siblings, not children etc. !
Sorry, but I have to ask why am I being sent this?
I have over 3,000 SmartMatches in over 500 matching trees. How many of those are of the quality of the above match which tells me that Elizabeth Betts (Morris) is a SmartMatch to Elizabeth Rhodes (Noffsinger) - with matches of that quality (and new ones appearing on a daily basis) I will never get through oall of the SmartMatches I have.
Has the SmartMatch algorhythm been changed recently? I just don't recall having such bad matches in the past.
Good luck on sorting this out. I will send some other examples as I come across them if you like.
Viewing a tree -> Select "Edit Profile" -> Select "Events" -> Select "Add/Edit Events"
I get the possibility to add "Fact Photos". So far so good. But I only get an option to add new photos, but in some situations I would like to reuse already uploaded pictures. e.g. a picture of a church - for Birth, Confirmation, Marriage aso.
If several persons have had their ceremonies in the same church I would end up having a lot off copies of the same picture - when I only need one picture in the Album.
Please implement the option to reuse the same photo. I can be done as it it possible to pinpoint several persons from the same picture - thus relating the same photo to several persons
The Relationship Report is incredibly useful. With over 2,000 people on my tree, it's easy to get lost in the crowd. I just wish it were more readily accessible by having it included in the pop up baloon next to Family Tree, Profile, Photos and Timeline (or in place of Timeline, which I don't use it as often). Bonus points for letting the user choose the shortcuts he'd like to see.
I would like to be able to select where I want the "My Heritage" folder located. By default it is placed in the "My Documents" folder but as I keep all my Family Tree stuff in a separate folder I would like to move the My Heritage folder into it. I can do it now but when I start My Heritage and open my project it immediately creates a new "My Heritage" folder in My Documents.
I also want to be able to set where I want the backups to go. Each time I have to tell My Heritage where I want the back up stored. I have a separate partition for All my backups and then this partition is set to backup to a Removeable drive.
Meetup.com uses them. Pretty slick interface. It will surely help you gauge how much support there really is for each suggestion. And it will certainly free your support team from answering each and every single suggestion.
I propose a "Confidential Field" for each person in the tree which is viewable only by the site administrator. This is the reason: Suppose person A says, "Don't post my birthday on the site." Sometime later, person B says, "I know person A's birthday." Having forgotten what person A told me, I post his birthday and make him mad.
If there was a field attached to him which only I could see, I would put a note saying, "Mr. A doesn't want his birthday posted."
I have only had one smartmatch for a particular person since I put him into the tree. It has been obvious from the start that the smartmatch is a different person entirely, so I rejected it the other day, but the green indicator is still there. It would be nice if the green smartmatch indicator would go away at least after all smartmatches have been rejected. Then if a new one comes along the indicator would reappear and I will know to look at it.
