Things are worse with the Green Icons

Jacques Fortin said: HA HA HA HA HA!!!! I don't want to reserve the Endowment for three months. I just wanted to reserve the Sealing to Parents and share it with the Temple. I have a lady who had her Endowment reserved and shared with the Temple. Her sealing to parents needs doing. You can no longer choose ordinances. It takes over the the other green icons for three months. I am an experienced user. I tried everything I know. This is a lie even if the Temples were open I do not want to do this ladies Endowment at the Temple within three months. The Green Icon problem is even worse.
Tom Huber said: Before you can complete the sealing to the parents, the prerequisite ordinance(s) have to be completed, including the endowment.
Because the Endowment was shared with the temple system, a new feature was introduced that now allows you to pull the shared ordinance and take it to the temple, complete it, and then complete the Sealing that you want.
Right now, FamilySearch realizes there is a problem with the current "All or Nothing" approach to reserving names.
Jim Greene wrote this on the 17th about the most recent change
We are no longer in a position where names submitted to the temple is more important than to have the ordinances performed. Therefore, while not changing the meaning we are changing the emphasis of the green temple. We need to think of it as "This ordinance is available for temple work to be performed." It does not mean "This ordinance is ready to be requested/reserved or submitted/shared with the temple."Jim Greene's two major posts are in the https://getsatisfaction.com/familysea... discussion from June 12th, 2020, and the https://getsatisfaction.com/familysea... discussion from the weekend of June 13th-14th, 2020.0
Jacques Fortin said: "a new feature was introduced that now allows you to pull the shared ordinance and take it to the temple, complete it, and then complete the Sealing that you want." My point is it makes you take a three month reservation you have no choice.0
Roger C. Nilsson said: I suggest a color shade other than green be used to indicate ordinances are ready to be performed but have already been reserved or shared with the temple. Green next to a name on the family tree or individual details page indicates to me that ordinances need to be done and have not been reserved at all. It then requires clicking through several screens before discovering otherwise which is time consuming.
Otherwise, I like the color changes and understand the purpose behind the green indicator is to help clear up the backlog in performing temple ordinances which, it it does so, I support.
Thank you for all you do.0

Tom Huber said: What this means (90 days) is that you cannot reserve and reshare ordinances under your own name. It is the intention that you are going to take the ordinance(s) to the temple, not simply build a large number of reserved ordinances.
If you do not complete those shared ordinances within the 90 days, they return to their previous spot in the temple list, which is now just one list and is being done by the temples on a first in (to the list), first out (to the temple).
The problem is the All or Nothing approach. We've been told this is being looked at by the engineers.0
