Which app permits me to replace abbreviations and standardize names and places
I am presenting on Zoom to the ward temple and family history consultants in the stake.
My topic is replacing abbreviations and standardizing names and places.
I do this on my laptop, but have been unable to do it on my smart phone.
Which app do I use on my phone to correct names and places on familysearch?
With the correct app, what are the first couple of steps to get to this volunteer section?

Hi Larry, the volunteer activity Improve Place Names is found in the Family Tree App.
Here are screenshots from the iOS version but it should be similar for Android devices. We hope this information helps with your presentation. The mobile apps provide great options to engage in family history.0
We received your question about using your phone for mobile apps.
We hope you will be successful making your Zoom call.
We are attaching several knowledge articles for your review.
You can request that we add a missing place (such as a town, city, or church) to the FamilySearch database of standardized places but the majority of them are already included and it seems that your question indicates this.
If the place already exists in the FamilySearch database, location options will appear when you click onto the standardized place.
You will find all the information to follow in a knowledge article in which we have provided a link for you below.
You can view more knowledge articles in Help (the small circle around the question mark at top right of screen)> Help Centre.
I hope that we understood and provided information that answers your question. Thank you for using Community and we hope this link or the Help Centre provides the answers you seek.
If you need further help regarding this question, please reply directly to this answer/discussion.
I would like to thank you for your desire to seek out your ancestors and wish you joyful success as you do your family history work. https://www.familysearch.org/help/helpcenter/article/how-do-i-add-or-correct-a-standardized-place-in-family-tree
We wish you much success.1
@Larry9 , I think you are asking about automatic text completion. It is disabled on the Family Tree mobile app.
When doing repetitive tasks I put the texts in a file in the Notes app, copy from there into the clipboard, and paste into the Tree app.0
