Help Reduce Errors: Enhance Reason Statement Field Features
I am continually disappointed in missing or weak reason statements found in the Tree.
Enhance the Reason Statement processing to encourage and train users to create useful statements:
EVERY place where a Reason Statement option is given:
1) If the statement field is left blank or unchanged challenge the user with a, “Are you sure you want to proceed” type question as is now on some fields.
2) Provide an optional button which takes the user to a popup that briefly explains the value of reason statements AND gives examples such as “The name, birth date & place match other sources” etc, etc.
3) Replace the sample reason statements in the Merge screens with better suggestions such as above. (When I come upon one of the current suggested reasons actually used I find them nearly useless except for the CIDs being listed.)
Also: Improve requirements for comments when importing from partners and GENCOM.
