LDS Teams-like file sharing area at LDStech?

On LDStech, I haven't yet seen a place to store Store project-related documents in Word, Excel, Powerpoint, or PDF format. I hope that folks here can point me to any resources I may be missing. My employee team usually uses Google Drive, but is playing with LDS Teams because we always argue over how...

Need wiki page deleted

The LDStech admin who created our LDStech wiki page misspelled our project title there, titling the page "ByteSize Genealogy" rather than "Byte-Size Genealogy." My experience spearheading FamilySearch Wiki taught me that it's less complicated in the long run to just create a new ...

Goals of FamilySearch Wiki

Could you perhaps explain the background of the Wiki being established, its goals, and to what extent its development is internal to the Church and external to the community at large? Thanks. ...

Maybe it's the corporate firewall. Keep the feedback coming, gang! We really need to know how widespread this problem is.

Hey, are any of you out there experiencing delays on the new FamilySearch Wiki forums at http://forums.familysearchsupport.org/index.php ?

The usability team voted to delete it. The nav box needed simplification and genealogists weren't using the random page link.

The test of vBulletin on this instance has been great for the FamilySearch Wiki community. The Research Support team has tested the vBulletin software as moderators and really like the tool. We're now ready to begin the next phase of FamilySearch Wiki -- to offer forums that are integrated with the ...

Usergroup Time Change Problem

I've been informed that we're going to have to push back the user group meeting back to 2:00-3:00 for the time being. We were double booked with another group that is scheduled to be in the room during the 1:30-2:00 time slot. We'll just have to keep our meetings short for now and get out of there b...
