Give me the Names!!!
My family tree is large and tangled, so in trying to find my way around the branches I often get totally lost. So to continue my work of finding new names my most productive time was when I received notification that temple work was done for one or more of my submitted names. My messages inbox used to be full of those notifications, listing the names of those for whom work was done. When I received those messages, I would click on their names and go visit their family tree. In a short amount of time, I would be able to clean up their family tree by linking record hints, adding new children to the family, estimating birth and death dates to help the computer find me more records, etc. Then I'd delete the message from my inbox. My work was done for the day. Now, and for the past few years, I have been totally handicapped by the loss of that information. Now I get a message that somebody got their work done. I can go look at the list, which is 3,000+ names that i've submitted. I can click on a random name and do the same. This is OK, and I still occasionally find new names and clean up the family trees, but when I'm done, I no longer have an email to delete to say I'm done here. The next time I go look at the names in my completed list, I don't know if I looked at this person's tree before. I have no way of knowing if I missed anybody. I feel so disorganized, floundering as I randomly beat around in my trees. I want the names back!!! I've been putting up with this for long enough!!!
@User15862806971012736517 I agree - there needs to be a way to track/check off what tree profiles have been reviewed/cleaned. Your prior method seems like it was an ingenious built in profile review reminder and process for you. In one of my ideas I suggest exactly that - a profile review task and a profile relationships review task. Each would allow you to leave a residual mark of agree, disagree or unknown (👍 👎 or ⁉️) on each profile data line/type. Whether this was visible to other users when viewing those profiles - or whether only a total percentage agreement was visible to others and each line only visible to oneself - I think such a feature would be useful to help track one's own tree research/validation and collaboratively display such profile work/progress. Probably one of the simpler ideas to help your idea would be to change the color of text on those profiles you visit from the Completed list? The change in color should provide that 'visited' indication for you - or perhaps a visited date/timestamp.
The My contributions list does provide a 'log' of your tree changes - so that also assists - but is not quite the same as displaying 'your agreement' (or lack of it) for a profile - nor is it a task/reminder such as you mention.
One other method of profile progress tracking - mentioned by @Gordon Collett - is to add a Collaborate> Note before one begins working on a profile and delete it after completing. I'm not sure if such shows up in My Contributions - but if it did (yes I'm being lazy and haven't checked) that would also work.
Hopefully something helps us flounderers.0
This morning I am seeing changes in the homepage - which reminded me of the Recents tab - when you visit a profile it should/will appear in Recents. That should help a bit also.1
