Can FamilySearch create an updated training video about how to index with voices and faces?
Here are some older, but not too old, videos for you to consider. They do have voices and faces. Still, perhaps new ones would be helpful:

Here's an interview with Jason Pierson and a discussion about indexing, including what's coming in the future.

Here is a Review video by the late, beloved Jason Pierson, who was at the time the Product Manager for FamilySearch indexing:3

@annewandering I suggest that it gets pinned at the top of indexing with the Title: TRAINING VIDEOS FOR INDEXERS AND REVIEWERS.0
Here's another one.

Thanks for the tips. I've been trying to find a training video for those who have not indexed before and now we have a stake goal. but thank you for this I learned something.0
One major thing is missing in that Tips & Tricks Video is to Read the Project Instructions and the Field Helps before indexing anything. If they had, they would have known that a date was required for the muster roll project that was being indexed. They needed to show the indexers how to use reference images to find it. They also needed to show indexers that the last icon on the right brings those instructions up any time.
Its okay for navigating some of the stuff in the program, but, it really isn't great for teaching indexing. The most up to date training video is the one with Jason and Wendy. The actual indexing lesson starts at the 8 minute mark.
@annewandering . A big problem for me with the new Suggest an Idea setup is its lack of organization and segregation by discipline. Many people like grouping all ideas about any Community component. I'm not too fond of this change to its organization. Indexing ideas get swallowed up and pushed down by other Community ideas and are hardly ever seen for review and voting. So, currently, I much prefer @Melissa S Himes's idea of pinning it to the top of the stack here in Indexing Q&A.
Better still, I would love to see a Related Resources section in plain sight and with links to these and other indexing resources. I have formally suggested this "idea." Is the Vanilla platform incapable of providing a feature like this? Does anyone know of a mature, probably commercial, Vanilla-based platform considered a state-of-the-art example of the Vanilla platform in use?
I wonder why the developers can't or won't add this feature or something like it to our FS Community. Is the only option pinning to the top of the Q&A forum? We had a rudimentary version with the Indexing Chat Group that was helpful.1
