Ordinances Ready: What is the algorithm for selecting names?
I am a T&FHC and have been experimenting with Ordinances Ready in preparation for teaching about it. I can't figure out the algorithm used for selecting names from my own temple reservation list, or from someone's tree if they don't have currently reserved names.
In my own list, when I used this feature to select names, it did not select a name from those with the closest expiration dates, nor those with earliest reservation dates, nor my closest relatives. It seemed very random as I launched it multiple times to select for the same ordinance.
So, my question is: What is the algorithm used for selecting names in temple reservation lists or family trees?
Also, I request that Ordinances Ready include the following features in upgrades:
- Allowing a patron to select ordinances for either gender;
- Allowing a checkbox to exclude a person from the list presented;
- Excluding persons with zero sources. It seems that the names being pulled up from family trees is just a list of people with data problems and no sources. Including those names has a high likelihood of providing the patron with erroneous information and causing duplication of ordinances.
- Providing patrons with their closest relative from Family Tree or their nearest expiration date from Temple Reservation list.
- Show the relationship of the person in the Ordinances Ready list.
