In Family Tree Builder 5.0 (Very soon to be released) you will have an option to generate a custom report, selecting the fields and people you would like. This report will be exportable and editable in Excel.
I think this will very much pleased your necessities.
A To Do List or Flag for Family Tree Builder Software would be awesome. As it is, a custom event named ToDo can be created with notes, which works fine, then all the "ToDo" items can be listed and reviewed, but maybe an official To Do list or flag on records.
Also, the New Fact > Category Custom Facts > Fact Types ... this custom list does not show up in the Search options under drop down menu for Facts Type. Those items kinda need to show up so they can be selected for search criteria.
And then, we need a way to edit or remove Custom Facts > Fact Types from the master list. FTB is automatically doing some things in the list that I would like to remove. For example, if you try to make a Custom Fact Type= Death of Spouse, FTB will automatically throw a bunch of trash in the Custom Fact Type list, and swap out "Widowed" for the Fact Type.
Great Software, btw. I've used them all, and FTB has the best visual interface for usability.
When I click on the research icon on an individual the individuel are locked in the top when scrolling down. Would it be possible to make the same solution when clicking on the match icon? In the current verion the selected individual will scroll out of the page.
Would it be possible to make census registration a little bit different? Most census papaers includes mother and father plus some or a lot of children. If you are going to make the census registration for a hole family it can be some work. It might it be possible to make a solution with check boxen of the family of where to copy the registration?
I use the facts photos for documentation of ex. birth, merriage etc. and I want to publish these facts photos on the web page for the individual person. The photo or document are not automatically published and I therefore have to add a photo to the individual, but the the photo/document are not shown as a fact photo anymore.
The support for graphics formats are not to good. Many of my JPG, PNG and other documents/photos are not shown when I open facts photos.
It is possible in Family Tree Builder to make different catagories of photos and documents, but on the web site all photos will be stored in the specifik catagory and in the Family Photos catagory. This means that photos are allways "stored" twice if you are going split you photos into different catagories.
In you do not have the premium plus membership this means that you total number of stored photos are only half the number mentioned on the upgrade site for the Premium membership.
I think that the registration of a name change schould be done in another way than it is done in the current version. Ex. there is no way that the research function can search for a person before and after the name change. It would be nice if ther could be a field for name before and name after the name change.
I would like to see the option of being able to suppress personal information (birth, marriage, etc.) for living persons on charts. For example, I may want to share descendant history with a third cousin, but I don't want that person to have access to my immediate (living) relatives date of birth, marriage, etc.
Thank you for your response. Yes, I previously read those posts but because they did not answer my question I posted a new thread. I would like to prevent this personal information from being displayed on a PDF chart that I might send to another person. The posts you refer to tell me how to prevent displaying this information on a Web site; but it would also be helpful to have an option to turn on/off this information when running the charts. What I had to do was go through and manually electronically erase the personal info for living people from the PDF version of a chart I ran when I wanted to save it locally and send it to someone else via email. Thanks!
We are sorry but we currently have no options to privatize people from your web tree in your family chart for sending it out to site members. The design is based on the fact that if you are sending a family member your tree, you most probably trust them enough with your family information.
I had a really difficult time locating the "help" link!! I just assumed they would be at the top of the page somewhere as the "Help" links usually are. I think all the links at the bottom of the page would be better placed if they were in tabs at the top of the page.
