Changes to the way records are saving to an individual
Until a few days ago, when I saved a record to an individual, I had the opportunity to standardize the date and the location while attaching the source.
Now, that opportunity is no longer available. That means double work, because I then must return to the individual profile or each member of the family, in the case of a census or other source attached to multiple people, edit the date, edit the place, save, rinse, repeat.
Is this change intentional or an accidental side effect of the new search format? Any hope of it being fixed?
I wonder if it's related to the recurrent but intermittent glitch that has been reported here more and more often of late, where standardizing in Source Linker fails to carry through to the profile.
(I haven't used Source Linker in about a month now, so I wouldn't know, either way.)1
As of today, at least on the records I have saved to several individuals, the option to standardize date and place has returned to the save process.
I also note the merged PID numbers are now added to the "Reason this information is correct" field.0
There has been a concern for several weeks regarding the performance of Source Linker and standardizing places. It has been referred to the appropriate technical team. We appreciate the patience of all who are impacted.0
Interesting that those details are only shared after I comment that the issue may be resolved.
Information is useful and should not be held so close that no one knows of its existence.0
