Mobile version ancestors with tasks not clearing names

Alan E. Brown said: I'm sorry to hear this isn't working as you hope. Could you clarify a couple of points so that I can follow up on this?
First, are you using Android or iOS?
Second, are you seeing these persons with no hints when you first come into the Ancestors with Tasks feature? Or do you see them on the list when they do have unresolved hints, then you go attach the hints (or mark them as "Not a Match") and then return to the list of tasks, only to find that the person is still listed?
Finally, you said that it is "no longer" clearing names. I gather from that statement that it used to behave as you hoped, but is no longer doing that. Do you have any recollection of when it stopped working correctly? Was it after an app upgrade, or did it just stop working properly? Do you recall how long ago that was?
Thanks for any details you can provide.0

Prior to the recent overhaul in the hint attachment process, I had no problem. Even if I used the web version to review an.comd attach sources, I could open the profile from the list in the Android app, and look at one hint. That would force enough of a profile refresh to see whether the profile still had hints. The hints would clear, and the app would clear the name from the list.
Today, I've been playing with trying to clear some of the names from my list. And its really weird. I can open a profile from my list on the Android app. The profile opens with no hints. *Sometimes* choosing to "refresh this profile" will remove the name from the list after a minute or so. I've had some success with clearing a few times at a given time. But then I'll find a profile that truly did need work done, and after processing several hints, I'll return to my Ancestors With Tasks list, and all of the names that I had cleared will show up in the list again, still with no new hints.
Who knows? Maybe its something to do with particular profiles. You can investigate a few of these:
GQ3N-SN8 Stephen Brubaker
G328-BY6 Gilbert Strauss Groff
GMS5-32H Donald Edward Brubaker
LH8Y-RDC Katharine Miller
LHB1-DLL Harold Edwin Oxenreider
LRNM-ZRD Sara Potteiger
Thanks for looking into this.0
Alan E. Brown said: David,
Thanks for these very helpful details. I'm looking into it. I can't really look into your Ancestors with Tasks very easily, but the good news is that when I started with the father of the first person on your list (Stephen Brubaker's father Donald Edward Brubaker), I can duplicate the problem with Donald's Descendants with Tasks. The AwT and DwT features share the same underlying code, so I'm confident that if we fix one, we'll fix the other.
I'll need to work with some of our back-end people, so it will take some time, but this gets me on the right track.0
David Wynn said: So, it sounds like this might be more of a profile-related issue than an overall issue. Thank you for confirming, and please let me know if there's anything else I can provide to help isolate the issues.0
