Improve Filters for My Reservations
When logged into Family Search, clicking “Temple”, followed by “My Reservations”, I'm presented with a list of all my reserved ordinances. The filtering functionality is a bit problematic. For example, if I plan to perform Sealings and want to print off names needing the sealing ordinance performed, I intuitively select the filters to turn on “Sealing to Parents” and “Sealing to Spouse” and turn off the filters for all other ordinances. In theory, this should bring up only names that are ready for their Sealing ordinance to be performed. Instead, I end up with a list of people that, while needing a sealing, may not even have their Baptism performed. I’ve had a problem in the past showing up to the temple with names to seal only to discovered that those individuals are not eligible because their Baptisms haven’t been performed.
Instead of utilizing filters to help me, I have to manually look over all the names in “My Reservation” to ensure I’m only printing names who are truly ready--have been baptized, endowed, etc.. This makes the filters rather worthless. I’d suggest that the filter should only show the names of those ready for the ordinance being filtered on. For example, if I filter on “Endowment”, only names who have had their Initiatory performed should appear. If I select Initiatory, then only names of those Baptized should appear. This would make the filters more helpful and actually reduce errors by names being brought that aren't eligible.
In order to get names that are ready for the one ordinance you select, you need to use the Perform Next filter in the upper section. This changes the filter for the ordinances from a show all view to a show some view.
The one exception is for sealing to spouse since the program, and current church policy, does not require any previous ordinances to be completed first. Therefor Sealing to Spouse will give you the same names whether the Perform Next filter is on or off. At this point you still need to check each of those if you desire to seal a couple only after all their individual ordinances are completed.0
