How can I find index batches I've finished during the day?
how can I look up indexing batches I just submitted?0
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Not that I can be of any particular help/assistance ...
That Said ...
Just in passing ...
This place in the "Community.FamilySearch' Forum, is specifically for submitting "Feedback" (eg. Suggested Enhancements; and, actual Faults/Flaws), to 'FamilySearch'.
As such ...
Can I humbly suggest, that you consider resubmitting this 'Question' of your to a more appropriate place for seeking help/assistance.
In this case, as such relates to "Indexing" ...
'Category' = Indexing
HOME > FAMILYSEARCH HELP > INDEXING
I hope, that this may help/assist, somewhat.
I';m taking a family history class and I have to keep track of what I index and take a screen shot of what I've done and I didn't do that0
If you have submitted the batch there is no way to retrieve it that I know of.
I am not sure if that was what you were asking???0
Evan, there is no way that you can look up any batches that you've indexed after they have been submitted. You can look at how many you have done by clicking on the word project at the bottom of your batch page, it will have what project you indexed and how many. Then again that may not reflect the true amount you have done because FS seems to be out of sync with the work that is being indexed and reviewed.
I do hope this answers your question and thank you for indexing.1
You can't find the actual batches that you have finished. There is a progress chart on your main page just below where you select batches that will show you numbers of entries (records).
When you click on Projects it will show you the last five projects you worked on, the total number of records submitted, and the date of the last submission. The chart will show your progress by Month, Quarter, Year, and All-Time.1
If you only work on one to five projects, you could easily keep track by writing down or creating a spread sheet with your batch codes and numbers of entries per batch. Then if you have to prove the work was done, you could screen shot your progress chart - both the chart side and the project side. The batch codes are the letters and numbers in brackets after the project title.2
@J C Bingham created a very elegant and beautiful spreadsheet (with charts, I believe) that he shared during the days of Indexing Chat. It was one of our "Resources." Using it, he tracked the batches he indexed or reviewed. Maybe he'd be willing to chat about it here and show what it can do - if he is still using it and is so inclined.0
@John Empoliti Thanks for the compliment.
@Evan Dee Loveless I do have a spreadsheet that I use to keep track of the batches that I have submitted. However, using it requires that you remember to capture the information (generally before you submit the batch). Since I have been using it for about 3 years now it has become a habit for me to capture the information (the project name and batch code, the number of records in the batch, the date and approximate time of submission) when I finish a batch, before I submit it. I have automated some of the work of capturing and recording the information using two AutoHotKey scripts (that were developed after I initially shared the spreadsheet, which have not yet shared). The bottom line is that remembering to capture the data is required, which seems to be the crux of the original question. Early on in the use of this spreadsheet I did notice that once a batch has been submitted it is still displayed on the screen (although darkly) until the question about what to do next has been answered, which allowed me to capture the project name and batch code on several occasions.
If you would like to discuss this further please send me a private message.4
I certainly wish there was a way to retrieve a submitted batch, even if only for a short time. I just submitted a batch and realized that I put the surnames and given names in the wrong fields. If there was a way to retrieve it, I could have corrected it.0
Hi @paulgentry1 . We've all done that or some other slip-up. That's why Reviewers exist. Yours should catch and fix that.0
