999 SmartMatches - but lots of them really far from matching anything!

I have a person that is matched 999 times to other trees. Many of them (even with 60-75% match) have nothing in common (not the name, maybe 200 years apart, etc. etc)

What happened and how can I mark all of them false in one go instead of having to reject all of them using many days?

At present Family Tree Builder only allows rejecting or confirming a single match at a time.  Doing this on group of matches is a good idea and we will consider it for our future versions.  Thanks for this feedback.

(As you can see for some reason you answer was listed as written by me?)

I love the function of SmarMatch. It is really cool. But to match a person where the only matching  info is gender (the fact that the two persons are female) should not score enough to be considered a match IMHO. Though you might be right that it is sometimes (in my example) also a partial name match.

The best thing would be to try to adjust the engine to consider these cases and just being female and having a name that to some extend is similar to another person should not be listed as a match I think. Many have several hundreds of years difference, location difference, spouse difference, number of brothers/sisters difference.

Another idea would be to have a setting to only have matches above a certain % show and mailed to you. To have to go through 1000 matches is time consuming.
