Suggestion for smartMatching
Rudy Schockaert
- Close

Smartmatching is a really helpful tool, but as always there is room for improvement.

What I'm missing is the possibility to mark the found matches. Mark them as:

- read

- a real match (is also interesting for the person managing the other family tree)

- a non-match

 As I have for the moment matchesin 162 family trees, you can see it would make a big difference.

I'm kind of new to this, but why does Smart Matching only work on one side of the tree. Example: All the Robbins from my gfather up get smart matched, but the Parsons on my wife's side have yet to be smart matched at all. Anyone know how to change this parameter? Thank you.

Sorry for the late response, just back from vacation.

 For a person to get smartmatched he/she must appear in another tree. It is always possible that noone has begun with a tree of Parsons. Another possibility is that the smartmatch engine has not yet processed all the persons in your tree and that you just have to be patient.

Sometimes smartmatching takes a couple of days before I get any results  when I publish a new version of my tree.

Have you tried the research tab to find out if there are trees with Parsons from your tree?

 

Regards,

 

Rudy

Thank you for your response. In retrospect, now, I believe it's the brick wall I'm hitting with this one relatively early descendant that's keeping the smartmatch at bay. I'll keep trying!Cry

What I would really, really like, is the possibility to exclude one or some familytrees from the comparison. Now I am almost every day annoyed with 25 familymembers in everytime the same other tree that I have already agreed upon or discarded. And then it tells me that there are several thousand others to compare manually! And the next day "plop!" there are the same familiar ones again, all from the same one very active (and that is good!) other site. I want to exclude that site or the owner until I search his site on my own . . .

The user should be able to remove a match so that it never appears again in any updates.  There are some matches that I would never accept and don't want to have to keep seeing them everytime I do an update.

I agree with you on all you said. I have one more question: Why does mine say there are 221 ADDITIONAL trees not displayed and cant get to them.

Sorry for the late reply, I'm just back from vacation.

I suppose you refer to the email you receive where it is mentioned that there are 221 additional trees. In the email you receive there are only a few matching trees, the complete set of smartmatches can be found on your MyHeritage site.

 regards,

Rudy

Yes I would also like to know the answer. I also have over a thousand matches and it tells me the same.
