Confidential field
John Hornick
- Close
I propose a "Confidential Field" for each person in the tree which is viewable only by the site administrator.  This is the reason: Suppose person A says, "Don't post my birthday on the site."  Sometime later, person B says, "I know person A's birthday."  Having forgotten what person A told me, I post his birthday and make him mad. 

If there was a field attached to him which only I could see, I would put a note saying, "Mr. A doesn't want his birthday posted."

Hi John,

 

We have just added this feature to our program Family Tree Builder,

you can make certain facts private in the software, and then they are not published to the Family Site.  

This is currently not possible with an online tree such as you are making,

but we are planning to improve the privacy options on the site as well,

and give you more control over what information each member can see.

 

Regards,

It is great to have the confidential field however there is an issue and I have a suggestion.

1. When a profle is indicated as "Private" in FTB the sex appears incorrectly on the website. A female member shows up as male.

2. When a profile is indicated as "Private" in FTB it should appear as "Private" on the website as opposed to "Unknown".

Hi Jacquie,

Thank you for writing to us and for reporting these issues.

They are currently the default options in our site for privatized individuals. However, I will forward your suggestions to our developers for future consideration.

Please let us know if you have any other ideas, as we value such input from our users.

Best Regards,

Lior
