Reserving Ordinances Under the 300 Limit Rule
Can someone explain why you can no longer share ordinances with the Temple if you exceed the 300 row limit?
How does this speed up the time it takes for ordinances to be done?
I understand that you can share all of your "grandfathered" ordinances with the temple to get under the 300 limit and then you can share new ordinances with the temple, but why can you no longer share with the temple if you are grandfathered?
This makes no sense if you are trying to help deceased ancestors get their ordinances quickly. Is it because you want to limit researchers from doing too much ordinance work?
'FamilySearch' (and, hence, the Church) HAS 'heard' our concerns; and, are working on it ...
[ ie. The ability, to "Share", DIRECTLY with the "Temple" System, if one's List of "Reservations" is x300 or more ]
We can but live in hope ...
ps: It would be good, to have conformation, either way, from/through 'FamilySearch', if such is in train.
..... [ ie. Has been considered; and, either, is; or, is not, in the works ... ]
If your Temple ordinance list is over 300, you can not reserve more even to share with the Temple. That leaves those ordinances available for other family members to reserve, which will speed up the completed ordinances.
A new limit of 300 reservations enables you to more easily manage your reservation list. It also allows Church members to more easily find family names and other temple opportunities. Additionally, it will help those beyond the veil receive ordinances in a more timely manner.

How will prohibiting the sharing ordinances for grandfathered users increase the timeliness of providing ordinances?
It also appears to me that this will not increase the ability for users to find ordinances to do. They can still reserve ordinances that have been shared with the temple.
It seems I must be missing something.
We asked a supervisor and received the following:
Those excess names stay on the your temple list, but you cannot reserve more until the number drops below 300 lines. You will need to provide more details & screenshots explaining your current issue in order for us to be of further help.0
I must not have explained my question very well.
This is the situation. If ......
- You are grandfathered and have more than 300 rows of ordinances; and
- You do additional research and add a new person to FamilyTree who has no ordinances
Then you can no longer share the ordinances for this person with the Temple; unless you get below the 300 limit.
My question is how does that speed up the timing for this new person's ordinances?
Do you want me to provide you with a screenshot showing this cannot be done?
