Once I look at a smart match, I would like to be able to do a few things
1) Have a button to say that "yes this was correct" or "no this is wrong"
2) Once I take the data, "remove from listing"
Right now I am up to about 400 smart matches - I only care about new interesting ones that come in. I do not want to have to look at 400 anymore, I'd like to delete most of them and also say that 20 are WRONG!
I agree with this suggestion. We should be able to delete smart matches if we want or at least move them to a "viewed" folder. At the time they may not seem linked but may be useful later. If there was a viewed folder you could go back to that folder later if you wanted to.
We have received many requests for this feature from our users, and it is something that we are working on at this very moment. A new Smart Matching interface will be released in the very near future offering deletion, collaboration and many other enhancements. Please stay tuned, it's worth waiting for!
Note: if you are using the Family Tree Builder software, you can mark certain matches as confirmed if they are correct, or rejected if they are wrong. To do so, go to the Matches section in the program, and then click any person to see their matches. Select the relevant match or matches, and click on the "Change Status..." button at the top of the page.
Confirming or rejecting matches is recommended as a way to work your way through your Smart Matches and spot new ones that you have not yet handled easily.
A new and much improved version of our Smart Matching engine has been released a few days ago. Among other things, it allows to confirm and reject matches like you want. Check it out!
Actually, the new confirm matches feature doesn't work very well. You either have to confirm all or one by one.
For example, I would like to have a checkbox next to each name so I can check more than one name to confirm rather than do them one by one. Along with that should be a global accept feature based on percentage so I can say, accept anyone who is a 75% match or greater.
I also would like a default setting to send an e-mail to the other submitter. That way you could eliminate the one by one selection.
