Account continuity via beneficiary when submitter dies
Rather than just closing an account when a submitter dies, it would be really helpful to allow each submitter to designate a relative as beneficiary of their account. In other words, everything submitted by the deceased contributor now is managed by the beneficiary.
The benefits to this would be:
- Living individuals entered in the deceased submitter's account would transfer to the beneficiary so they can continue to be worked;
- The beneficiary's contact could be linked to all the deceased submitter's contributions so that questions by other researchers can be answered by the beneficiary.
Thanks for considering!
