Bring back the ability to sort our temple name list by Sealing
Before the change we were able to sort our temple name list by sealing by simply clicking on the Sealing column title. Please bring this feature back. Now that temple cards are not being returned and we are having to reprint the cards for every ordinance we need more options for tracking our cards. My work is mostly in areas that use patronymics so an alphabetical sort by surname does not group my families. I used the Sealing sort regularly as I did the work for family groups. I am unable to do that now and I there is no longer a way to view a family group. This is a very necessary tool.
This new look is too generic. When I do the temple work, I want to work by family. There is no simple way prepare the list I want to do because there is no way to; 1) sort by last name, or A to Z; 2) view more than 1 to 1 1/2 names on my computer screen at one time. Please bring back the old screens. They weren’t broken, and they gave us the ability to work more efficiently and timely. Please think outside the box. When adult children are being sealed to their parents, I would like to seal them in a family setting. Now children are 5 screens apart and when there are 10 children, some are missed in the search. I’m just disappointed in many of the “new, bland, generic, simply not thought through” changes.0

To sort by name, first name, or last name in either ascending or descending order, open the filter panel and choose the sort you want:
For sealings, open the filter panel and unclick everything but, for example, Sealing to Parents and under View click Perform Next:
This will at least give you all children whose B/C/I/E are completed. It does not check to see if the parents have been sealed, but you can click on the parents' names to open their summary cards to check their ordinance status:
Then play around with the sort options and see if you can get all the children in a family grouped on the same page so you can select them all at once.0
