Duplicate Temple Ordinance Requests.
I was requesting temple ordinances and saw a green light so went ahead to request that on my tree only to find that someone else had previously requested the ordinances and had shared it with the Temple. I was just wanting to find an ordinance to be done that no one else had. But now it is now popping up with duplicate request entries. As I share with the temple, I don't see the point in wasting time having to now go through individual records to find unrequested ordinances.
There is a new icon for shared ordinances which can be reserved for 90 days

'Jessie', is correct; and, has provided you with a 'link' to an Article about this matter in the 'FamilySearch' "Blog".
The exact spot in that Article can be accessed with this extended 'link':
Update: August 20, 2020—New Symbol for Temple Icons with 90-Day Expiration
As an aside ...
You are not alone with your concerns ...
The subject that you have raised has been discussed very extensively in both,
(1) the OLDER 'FamilySearch' ("GetSatisfaction") 'Feedback' Forum; and,
(2) various Articles in the 'FamilySearch' "Blog".
The RESULT of those very extensive discussions is what we NOW have; as, indicated in the ("Blog") Article of "Update: August 20, 2020—New Symbol for Temple Icons with 90-Day Expiration", being the little "Clock"/"Watch" Icon inside the "Green" Temple Icons, that are "Available" to "Request"; BUT, have ALSO been "Share[d] with the Temple System".
I hope this helps, just a little; and, gives you some perspective.
