Smart Matching matching against my own tree?
Timothy Joseph Miller
- Close

After spending hours Confirming/Rejecting all of my matches with the new & improved Smart Matching tool, I logged in today to find I have 193 Smart Matches to confirm with myself???

All showing as 100% matches, I only have one site & one tree. Is this an issue or have I done something stupid?

 

Regards, Tim.

Hi Tim,

 

After you confirm a match, it will stil wait for confirmation by the other site manager.

Once both of you approve it, you can link the two trees, and start a conversation over the match.

I looked in your site, and could not find any matches you got with yourself.

If you see anything like this, please attach a screenshot to the post,

or send it to support(at)Myheritage(dot)com so that I can take a look.

Hi,

I am using Family Tree Builder.  If I want to "link the two trees, and start a conversation over the match", how EXACTLY do I do that? We are talking here about instruction "for Dummies", please consider me computer illiterate.

And if I succeed in starting this discussion, can I/ we use the web page to make any changes we agree upon?

And will this innovation interact with Family Tree Builder? Or will stuff have to be transcribed manually? 

Thanks,

Geoff

Hi Geoff,

 

This feature currently only exists online, and not in Family Tree Builder. We will add it to FTB in one of the future versions.

What you can do now, is publish your tree to your family site, and in your family site (you can get to it from FTB by using Publishing > My Sites > go to my site) go to the Family Tree > Smart Matches page.

Here you will be able to confirm matches and send emails to other site managers, who will confirm them back. You will  then be able to converse over the match, and see the details in the other tree. You can also ask to be a member in the other family site. 

Changes to your tree cannot be made online, as an FTB tree is only editable in FTB. This too will change in the next version we release.

Thank you, Noam, you have answered around half of my question.

If I have information on the web site (from this interaction with others, from on-line smartmatching which is apparently more advanced and user-friendly than with FBT; or whatever other information);

HOW do I get it into Family Tree Builder? Copy and paste? Screenshots (which I have heard of but have little idea of how it is done) ?? Look at it on one screen and re-type into the other?! (Yes I have two WIDE screens which is fantastic for this work).

And when do you think the new version of the software (web and FBT if that is what it takes) might be available, for better synchronisation?

We're getting there!

Thanks,

Geoff

Hi Geoff,
Yes, you will need to user Copy & Paste to add new text to FTB.If you get a new photo through a Smart Match, you can copy it to your online tree using the copy photo interface online, but it will not sync to your FTB. If you decide that you want it in FTB as well, you can download it from your website, and add it to FTB. You will then have to delete the photo from your family site to prevent duplication upon the next publishing.To download a photo from the site, go to the Photos page, click on the relevant photo, and then click on the Download button.All this is very cumbersome, but we are already working hard on FTB 7.0 which will feature a full sync between FTB and the family site. I can't give you an exact date, but I estimate its release in about 6 - 7 months.

Hi Lorraine, 

Can you please give me more details regarding any duplicate matches that you may have received, so that I can investigate this issue?
