Improve community groups site
I’ve gotten a lot of good information from the German research group that is part of the FamilySearch Community, but the platform is often frustrating and could use some improvement to make it more user-friendly.
- It’s hard to locate the “Groups” section from the main FamilySearch home page. I’ve never actually found a link to it, but had to remember that it starts “community.familysearch…” or bookmark it. It’s such a great and helpful community tool, it would be nice if you drew more attention to it or made it more accessible.
- It would be nice to have a way to search on discussions I have posted or participated in. I don’t see any way to do this. I’ve learned to copy/paste discussions into my own document, to save anything I wanted to look at later. I know that I may not be able to find it again on the site.
- When I click on my user profile icon, under “My Discussions” it says I have 63 items, but when I click on that, it goes to a blank page.
- I recently had a correspondence with another user researching the same last name. I would get email notices for some of her messages, but not others. Or they seemed to be on different threads?
Thanks for all the work the moderators do to help us German researchers. They’re a talented group. I’m just hoping you consider ways to make it more accessible.
