Getting a list of Ordinances by type that need to be done
I would like to do a search of my family tree to find all of a specific ordinance that needs to be completed. For example - Query - What baptisms are needed to be done in my family tree? Then Family Search would provide a list of all ancestors that need their baptism completed. I would of course have to go to each ancestor record and print the temple card.
The only way I know to do this now is to go record by record checking for a green temple icon and then checking to see what ordinance has not been completed. We have youth ready to go to the temple and it would be a lot easier to get a list of ancestors based upon 1 query.
Try the Ordinances Ready feature
I have tried the Ordinances Ready on the Temple tab. However, if you are a male, then Family Search ONLY provides you with MALE ordinances ready. If you are a female, then Family Search ONLY provides you with FEMALE ordinances that are ready. I have not found a way to get Ordinances Ready for the opposite sex of the logged in user.
You are correct that Ordinances Ready only provides ordinances for your gender, because it is designed to print what you need for you to take to the temple.
The youth who are going to the temple should have their own FamilySearch account, which will allow them to search their own tree and print baptism & confirmation cards for them to do.
You can also filter your own ordinances list by ordinance, and print names of both genders if desired.
How do I filter my family names list?
I’m also curious to know if there is a way to do this. I’d like to be able to see a list of ordinances needed for a specific family line for both genders so my wife and I can plan our upcoming Temple work more effectively.0
There are several features to assist you with seeing ordinances which need to be completed.
My preferred choice is descendants with tasks in the Family Tree mobile app. This allows you to go to any person ID you can view & choose to see up to 5 generations of only descendants who have record hints, temple tasks, or both. Often a person on the list will not have sufficient information to request ordinances—yellow temple Icon, but will also have blue record hints which will provide the missing information.
The same features are available in the browser version Descendancy View, but that view shows all descendants, not just the ones who need ordinances completed.

This is a view of descendants with tasks in the iOS Family Tree App.
I most often use the app on an iPad & use the option for multiple screens. It’s also easy to use the mobile app to see the tasks, and a browser on a larger screen to actually review & resolve tasks.
The mobile app has an added feature which allows users to choose whether or not to see temple icons for ordinances which have already been been shared with the temple.
Others will utilize different approaches to accomplish their goals. I appreciate the mobile apps because they enable me to use snatches of time while waiting or while away from home productively. After a family member was involved in a serious accident, I spent most of a month with him in a hospital room, and many hours in parking lot while he underwent follow-up care. Having access to FamilySearch on a tablet was a blessing
As someone who began submitting ordinances on paper forms I’m thankful to have so many tools to assist us.0

I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Just in passing ...
I am sorry ...
Short Answer: "OrdinancesReady" in NOT the answer ...
You are not alone ...
The desire, that we be able to "Print", the "Temple" Cards, for the opposite "Gender", from ourselves, through "OrdinancesReady", is a FEATURE that MANY (Member) Users/Patrons have yearned for and requested.
That Said ...
We can ALREADY, "Print" the "Temple" Cards, for members of the opposite "Gender", to ourselves.
We can do that ourselves, in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch", in the "Ordinances" 'Tab', of our Ancestors.
We can (both, "Reserve"; and,) "Print", the "Temple" Cards for whichever "Gender" we desire, Male; or, Female; as, there is NO restriction.
That Said ...
What you desire is SOMETHING that "OrdinancesReady" was SPECIFICALLY designed, NOT to be able to do.
Please let me explain ...
Please be aware that the "OrdinancesReady" feature/function/facility is ONLY, really, for a quick; and, easy, process of, FINDING; and, PRINTING, the "Temple" Cards, when one is going to visit the "Temple", that day or the next, when one DOES NOT have ANY "Temple" Cards, 'on-hand', available.
The "OrdinancesReady" feature/function/facility is certainly NO substitute, for doing one's due diligence, well IN ADVANCE of visiting the "Temple" of, FINDING; and, PRINTING, the "Temple" Cards, for one's Ancestors, to have 'on-hand', available, through one's "Reservations" List; and/or, normal research.
Hence, the reason, that we ONLY get "Temple" Work, for people, of the SAME "Gender", as ourselves, is a DESIGN Feature of "OrdinancesReady".
Although, I totally understand your desire.
I would humbly suggest that, your desire, may not be considered as appropriate, in view of the intended Design.
Here are some "Knowledge Articles", in 'FamilySearch':
How do I find family names for the temple with Ordinances Ready?
Where it states, among other things;
Ordinances Ready is designed to provide family name cards for the person signed in to the website or the Family Tree app. For example, if you are female, it only searches for ancestors who are likewise female so that you can perform their ordinances.
Where does Ordinances Ready get names?
Where it states, among other things;
Ordinances Ready finds names for you that are your **** (that is, male names for male users and female names for female users).
I know, that this certainly does not help/assist; but, I hope, this provides you with some additional, insight; and, perspective.
Who is to say things will not change in the future ...
