I have reserved/shared with the temple many names and now I would like to do some of them, but the site will not let me. How can this be undone? Evy

Question: Is, YOUR 'List', of 'Reservation' (Excluding, those 'Shared with the Temple System'), at x300 records/lines?
IF, one's "List", of "Reservation" (Excluding, those "Share[d] with the Temple System"), at x300 records/lines; THEN, that is NOW, the MAXIMUM "Limit", of "Reservations", that one can "Hold", at any given time.
ps: The ONLY way, around such, is to "Reduce", one's "List", of "Reservation" (Excluding, those "Share[d] with the Temple System"), to LESS than x300 records/lines.
Just in case ...
You were not aware ,,,
Once, you are at; and/or, reach, that LIMIT of x300, you CANNOT "Reserve", any MORE Work, until your "List" falls BELOW the x300.
Here are some Articles that details the NEW "Reservations" x300 LIMIT (Policy) ...
Answers to Questions | Personal Temple Reservation Lists, New Limit
I know that this may not help/assist; but, I hope that this gives you some additional, insight; and, perspective.
What does it look like in the left hand column of your shared list? There are two possibilities you will see:
If there is an empty check box, then you can just click there, un-share that reservation back to your personal list, and complete it yourself.
If there is a temple, that means that either it has been printed out at a temple and should be completed soon or that someone who should be a relative of the person has taken that entry as a 90-ordinance and it should be completed within 90 days if that someone is following the directions we have been given.
For example, if I go to the temple page for the first person with a temple icon in the illustration above from my wife's shared list, I see:
This shows that "m" has taken this as a 90-day ordiance. Clicking on his name, I can see that he is my wife's 4th cousin once removed. Unfortunately, he has not been able to get this completed, I would hope only because of temple closures and limits, Since reservation expiration dates are not currently being enforced, he has had this for quite a bit longer than 90 days.
From what I have read in various comments on these boards, I am starting to think, however, that a lot of people have stuffed their reservation lists with 90-day ordinances, far more than they could ever get done in 90 days. I suspect that when expiration dates start being effective again, that 90 days later a flood of ordinances are going to be released back to the general temple list and be available for people to actually complete or to be printed out by temples.
If the name has been printed by a temple, this can't be undone.
If it has been reserved as a 90-day ordinance and is just sitting there, you might message the person holding it, let them know you are the one that initially found and reserved it, that you now have the chance to complete it yourself, and ask them to unreserve so it becomes available on your list again.
