Folders - Be able to create subfolders.
For example folder with surname Jordan. Subfolder for a particular name or record number. It might be helpful to organize source objects that are not yet attached to a person.
The Source Box was originally envisaged as being a temporary home for sources that could not be attached to an ID for the "time being". I still use mine in that way.
However, many users now use it to store records on a more permanent basis. Maybe, in time, the developers will appreciate this alternative use and introduce enhancements - such as what you are suggesting - to suit the needs of what is possibly now the vast majority of Family Tree users.0
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
And, one who has a "Source Box", that is very extensive ( ie. Almost 32,000 ).
That is a GREAT suggested enhancement.
We have recently been advised that 'FamilySearch' is, FINALLY, currently working on several enhancements to the "Source Box", which by some is considered long overdue.
And, later, in that same post, a list of what is being worked on; and, a request for any OTHER suggested enhancements.
Rather than getting lost in the System ...
I will "mention", the Author of the aforementioned 'Comments', who is, BOTH, from 'FamilySearch'; and, working directly on the enhancements to the "Source Box", just so as (hopefully) he is aware your suggested enhancement.
I hope this helps.
Attention: @Bryce Roper (FYI)
Where is a complete description for using the Source Box? When entering "source box" in Help, all I get is a list of pre-determined questions which do not match my needs: maintaining a title-only source which can be used with many people. I am entering sources to a book. I add the page number and the content to the "comments" area in the source. When I go on to enter that source for another person, the previous "comments" content appears after I save it. Is it possible that this only happens when the web address box for the source is inserted?0
@Dick Ammann I will guess the problem is with the shared title for each Source you are creating. Or are you changing the title for each page? I am guessing the book is digitized and online and would assume the URL for each page is slightly different to reflect that pagination? If you can give the ID of a person or two from separate pages of the book that you are attaching Sources in Tree - that might help someone give a more detailed response.
If your title included the separate page number for each page/image I believe that would be one solution to the problem. You could the group those pages in a book titled folder.0
@Dick Ammann, you're trying to use a linked citation set as if they were all one-offs. It doesn't work that way.
When you use your Source Box to attach a source to some profiles, those attachments are all instances of the same source. If you edit it, it changes everywhere that it has been used.
This is one of my favorite features on FamilySearch. It allows me to attach unindexed funeral notices to everyone mentioned (sometimes over twenty people), and when I notice a typo in my transcription, I only need to fix it once, where and when I notice it.
I can think of two ways to achieve what you appear to want, i.e. separate copies of a source reference. One is to keep everything in the Source Box's entry generic or applicable to the entire book or other source, putting the individual details (page numbers or entry numbers or such) in the "reason to attach" box. The other method is to make use of the "Copy" option on the source. This "breaks" the linkage to the other instances: edits to the copy do not affect previous uses of the source.2
I realized we didn't address your question about where to find resources for how to use Source Box.
The FamilySearch Blog frequently contains articles about features. I believe here is the latest article link about Source Box feature updates:
The Help Center contains some articles about Source Box:
FamilySearch YouTube channel and other channels have videos containing instruction about Source Box:0
