Cautions upon entering new profile
I see a problem that occurs daily and causes a lot of extra work, and confusion.
A new person decides to add a profile for someone based on their research. They enter a profile, their spouse, parents, and children all being new profiles. .......Here is where the problem arises... They do not search enough and they are adding a duplicate with slightly different information. Then some of us need to spend a lot of time merging the new entries to the original profile. Today I spent over an hour with one persons entries.
Since most important people before about 1600 already have a profile this happens literally dozens of times daily on just people in my tree,
My suggestion is a large advice box pop up that appears when a user starts to add a new profile. The box could say something like
CAUTION. Most persons born before 1600 already have a profile. PLEASE do an extensive search before adding your new profile(s) so you are not duplicating an existing profile.
