What does it mean when there is a temple icon to the left of an individual's name on the temple reservation list?
Is this the icon you are referring to? This is a white icon on your shared temple list. It means that someone has reserved the ordinance you shared, and has 90 days to complete it or it will go back into the shared temple file.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happend to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Further to what has already been proffered ...
And, possibly contrary to what has been proffered ...
[ And, I stand humbly corrected, if I am wrong ... ]
IF, you are referring to your List of "Reservations" that you "Share[d] with the Temple System"; THEN, that "Temple" Icon on the 'Left-Hand-Side' of the page/screen; and, COUPLED with, under the "Ordinance" Column, the 'Status' of "Shared Printed", ...
MEANS, that a "Temple" HAS "Printed" the Card for that particular "Ordinance", which means, that the Work for that particular "Ordinance", is in IMMEDIATE Progress; and, that particular "Ordinance" CANNOT be either,
(1) "Printed" (by another User/Patron, including oneself); and/or,
(2) "Unshared" with the "Temple System" or "Unreserved".
I have confirmed such, in my List of "Reservations" that you "Share[d] with the Temple System".
Here are some "Knowledge Articles" in 'FamilySearch':
Where it states, among other things:
The check box next to the name you shared with the temple becomes inactive once the temple has printed the name card. The name and other information on that line turn slightly gray. At this point, you can no longer unshare the name.
Shared ordinances can be reserved by other members of the Church up until the time that the temple prints the family name card. Once the card has been printed, the ordinances are no longer available to reserve. These secondary reservations expire in 90 days, at which point the ordinances are returned to the temple.
As long as the temple hasn't printed the name card or another person hasn't reserved the ordinance, you can unshare the ordinance at any time.
I hope this helps.
