I have been using the app and site for awhile now.  Overall, I like the application. It is easy to use and usually works as intended, looks nice, etc.

 The website is a bit slow... Slow enough that I rarely load it.  And I liked the old format (with the menu on the left) better.

The biggest problem with adoption is that I have many people on various parts of the tree that have a lot of information that I don't.  Currently I have to manually enter it all.  I can't ship the GEDCOM to them and have them be the sole editor for awhile. The only way this program and site will ever be useful long term is if the various family members can easily update their own portion of the tree WHILE other people are editing other (or the same) parts of the tree.  Without that functionality, they all have turned to other sites instead - even after having them login here.

 

Anyways, hope that helps.

Thanks as always for your great feedback.

Indeed, allowing family members to grow the tree simultaneously is a very important and useful function.

You can now do so by creating a family tree directly online. Family members you invite can input information, photos, documents, etc, online without having to download anything.

In the near future, you will be able to synchronize your online data with the tree you created in Family Tree Builder.

 

Regarding the speed of the site, it is an issue we are working on day and night. Go ahead and give the online tree a try and let me know if you notice a difference in the site speed.

Regards,

If you created your family tree in Family Tree Builder, then all changes should be made there and then republished to your family site.

If you would like to create a family tree that can be edited online, simply export a gedcom in FTB and then go to your family site and click Family Tree > Upload Gedcom.

This will create a new tree you will be able to edit online.

**Important note: Uploading a gedcom does not include photos. If you upload a gedcom, you'll have to re-enter any photos in the tree.
