We currently do not have the option to show only matches above a certain percentage, although thank you for the suggestion. I will be sure to forward it to the appropriate department for consideration.
Can anyone from the staff, please, explain what technically happens when a match is confirmed. That is:
I get a list of trees on the net with matches to mine, how I really don't care.
So I look at one matching tree and find that ALL suggested matches are OK. I press the "coinfirm all" and get a new box where I have to confirm the matches once again.
NOw the questions:
1. What happens in my and the matchning tree on YOUR SERVER?
2. What happens in my tree ON MY PC on my desk?
3. When I see the GREEN symbol on a record I know it's a match but are ALL the confirmed records ON MY PC updated with that match symbol if I confirm them with the "confirm all" or are they only updated if I confirm ONE match at a time?
4. How does other persons confirmations affect MY tree on the SERVER?
First, it is important to note that there is a difference between Smart Matches in the site and in the Family Tree Builder. They are not connected, so that if you confirm a Match in the site it is not confirmed automatically in the program as well. We do plan to improve this in the next versions of the program which will better synchronize with the site.
After you confirm a match, you can copy the information from the matching tree if you are working in the program. Also, if you confirm a match in the program you can add the matching tree as a source. If another person confirms a match with your tree, you will receive an email requesting you to review the match and confirm or reject it in the site.
This happens every so often; I click on the smart match icon for a person, and after a few seconds the window opens and says there are no smart matches for John Doe. I go back to the tree and end up having to change the name from John Doe to Unknown Doe; save that then edit it back to John Doe. I get the icon back, click it and find the smart matches are back.
Why is this happening? I'd prefer that my smart matches aren't reset; as that hasn't done anything to solve this issue
Each time you make changes to your tree and publish, your Smart Matches are processed again. The data will then be compared with approximately 21 million other family trees at MyHeritage.
Since you have a very large tree, the collection of the data can take more time, up to several days.
It happens that in this "intermediate period" webmasters make changes in their family trees and remove individual cards and even entire trees. The result is that you have received a message that you have a smart match, but that the data has been removed- an empty smart match.
If you wait a few days without updating your tree, this should appear properly.
Hope this clarifies. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly to email@example.com, in case of further comments or questions.
Varje gång som det sker en säkerhetsuppdatering, så tillkommer ytterligare en web-plats. Jag har nu 3 sidor med i stort sett samma uppgifter, att hålla reda på. Varför? Kan jag göra något åt det?
Eftersom jag nu har fått 3 sidor så finns det enligt hemsidan 3 ggr så mycket folk i vår familj, som det egentligen finns...1800 st x 3 = 5400 ..Jösses, vilken stor familj! Fattas bara att jag måste börja göra matchningar mot mina egna sidor!
Smart match är så långt ifrån "smart" som det kan vara. Hur man kan matcha t.ex. Gun-Marie Person, född 1958, med Anna Olsdotter, född 1707, är för mig en gåta, eller rättare sagt ett stort misslyckande av programmerarna. Matchningen är till 58% "säker. Eller tror ni det är intressant att sitta och avvisa 250 heltokiga "matchningar" pr kväll? Skärpning!!!
When comparing smart matches I wanted to see what time period my person lived in so I went in to Tree View since I did not have that information on my person. But since my compared person did not have parents entered it gave me nothing. Since the Spouse have parents entered it would be greate if both the huspands and wifes parents had showed up. Sometimes both huspand and wife have same info in smart match, if just a few data is entered, and can only be confirmed/rejected by the extra info from the parents.
Coosing the tab "Matches" gives me a list of other Family Trees with matches to a person in my tree. From there I can choose one tree and compare. On the screen I can see my tree and the tree I compare with. Clicking on a person shows me data on the peron in both trees.
There is an option called "Merge" and I can choose either to have a Step-by-step merge or Automatic merge and I can mark or unmark the persons I want to merge. BUT here is the problem..... after the merging ALL merged records are marked as UNKNOWN in my tree!!!! BUT when I open the merged UNKNOWN records ALL infomation is there, also the name, but in my family tree it still says UNKNOWN for the name!!! If I open the record I can open a "new page" in the record called "name" and I can manually add the name, save the record and NOW it shows the persons name in my tree. Whats the point with the merging if it doesn't merge tha name, only the rest of the information and I still have to write the merged persons name?
Thanks for contacting us on our forum and I'll be happy to assist you with this issue.
First, It is important to know that this is happening because the language in which you have recieved a match for is not written in unicode. You may update this on your site though by following these directions that I've provided.
First, open your Family Tree Builder program
Next click on Tools from the toolbar
Then, choose Languages from the dropdown box
Right click in the window that appears
Choose the option manage data languages
Once this option is chosen in the new window, copy all the data over into the primary language that you use.
This should help, Please let me know if it does not.
This iis a limitation of our Family Tree Builder which is currently unable to work with multiple languages. We are aware of this issue and our developers are currently working to rewrite the program in order to resolve this issue.
