My progress isn't being saved properly. If I leave, my batch resets back to 31. I'm not sure what I should do.
I sometimes have that problem when I have a poor internet connection. I watch the saved time at the top of my work to make sure it is actually saving. If it hasn't saved after three or four minutes then you could have a slow or bad connection. if I see that happening I check to make sure I am still connected . You might be able to force it to save by clicking the black arrow at the left end of the tool bar to return to your home page.
I don’t have an answer on your progress issue. But I do want to mention that you should use that roster date (July 31, 1919) as the “Enlistment Date” for all the soldiers on that roster because no one has an actual enlistment date nor a date of a higher priority military event. Below is a screen snip of the priority list from the Field Help (purple ?) for the Enlistment Month.field that justifies this action.
You can do this most efficiently by (1) first indexing those roster date values in the three Enlistment Date fields for the first entry and then (2) using the “copy forward to all like fields” icon (6th from right - a fat down arrow) on each date field in that first entry to push those common month, day, year values forward to all your following entries. Do this at any time after you’ve created all the entries you need.
Thanks for the information. the big arrow seems to be working.
I misread and didn't understand the information about the enlistment date. I feel bad because I created a nightmare of a problem for who ever has to review my work on the last few of these I've done.
You're welcome. Don't worry about it. It will be as easy for the Reviewer to put those dates in place as it was for you.
