Manual merge, Family addition suggestions, Email address suggestion improvements

- Close

Three specific suggestions for the product:

1. Provide manual merge facility for free users.

2.  Just like inviting by email suggestions, birthdate and anniversary suggestions, do add family member additions based on closest relations/matches, e.g. Add brother of abcd, Add son or daughter of xyz and efg... The whole product is about how many more members can be added to the family tree so that families knows more about themselves.

3.  Email address suggestions should consider how many generations are behind and not to suggest inviting of generations that probably are not alive or email never existed during their times!!!

 

I hope it helps.

Hi Mitesh,

 

Thank you for your suggestions,

I will forward them to our Development Team.

If you are interested in merging 2 GEDCOM files, please read the following FAQ post:

 

Is it possible to merge two GEDCOM files together?

 

Regards,

Thanks Naom,

 

I am not using FTB, I just use the online version as it allows collaboration between family members to update information. Unfortunately unlike the FTB, the online version does not allow importing the GEDCOM file on the existing project/tree. It says, the tree already exists.

 

If I  merge the GEDCOM files in FTB, export it out again, delete the online tree and upload it again, the web site responds saying the tree already exists.

 

It would be great if the same functionality is available on the online version of merging a GEDCOM into existing project/tree.

The next version of FTB will include a full two way synchronization mechanism with the Family Site.  This will allow you to use FTB, and still have members edit the tree online.

This version is planned for released in a few months, I think it will solve your problem.

Is this version out Naom? Waiting to make managing the family trees easy.

Also do let me know if you have dropped the idea of taking up this feature so that I can plan accordingly

We have not dropped the feature, on the contrary.

we are now working hard on implementing it for FTB 7.0, as we could not include it in FTB 6.0.

This will be the main feature of our next release, please be patient for just a few more months and it will be worth your while.

 

Thanks
