Feedback: Editing while attaching a source
It would be very helpful to be able to edit fields on an individual while attaching a source. It would make things so much easier and would be a big time saver. I should be able to pull in the info from the source and edit the existing field at the same time I am attaching. I see this in Ancestry and it is more efficient doing it this way.
For the current setup: When attaching sources, it happens quite often that I will have more precise information found in the source that I would like to have updated on the individual's record in the family tree. For example: I currently have only the year for the date of birth with no place of birth but when attaching a birth record, I am provided with the exact DOB and place of birth. In this scenario, I have to capture the differences and attach the source. Then, I have to go to the details of this individual and make the updates manually.
Also, when attaching it is assumed that only what is indexed from the source is then only thing that is available to update. For example: When attaching a source from Find a Grave, I'll add the burial information and quite often there is no date for the burial indexed. I'll only get the place field and not the other associated fields. However, there is a "bio" the obituary of the individual that provides this date. It would be nice to be able to activate the date field while attaching so that this information can be added there. Otherwise, I have to capture the additional info and go back to the details of the individual and update manually.
