Epiphany

After I wrote that post last night, it hit me: the problem we're dealing with is "eligible for temple ordinances (i.e., proven dead with death date more than one year in the past)" != "adequately identified to avoid duplicate temple ordinances"! Maybe that was obvious to everyone...

NFS does not mark all names "Ready" by default; rather, it marks only those names as "Ready" that meet all the requirements for temple work. An ordinance will not be marked "Ready" if that individual's record does not meet all the requirements.... Or are you suggesting...

nFS QA

It is easy to clear names/partial or other with no information. The less information that you have the more likely you are to duplicate work that has already been done, because the program is not going to know if *Ann* with no information is the same as Ann born abt 1830 or 1840 or 1850 in the US, ...

Notes from the trenches

While clearing names for our upcoming Youth temple trip, I discovered two advantages of the new approach: 1. One family in nFS had their ordinances complete. Then we discovered several additional children, which I added. It was quick and easy to clear these children all at once. 2. While clearing or...

Concerns about new ordinance reservation process

I could be wrong, I'm still fairly new to using the new Family Search, but it doesn't seem to me that submitting the whole family is going to prevent someone from entering doggy data, or ignoring what has already been done, just to so they can submit Aunt Lillian and get her work done.

Concerns about new ordinance reservation process

In the previous release you could only release names to the Temple but with this new release you can remove them from your reserved list without sending them to the Temple. You're right, Gary--and I actually thought about that, but it's also a hack--a workaround which indicates the current process ...

Concerns about new ordinance reservation process

One more possible drawback, from a real-life example: in one family I'm working on, the father shows Ready, but I suspect his work may already be done as there are several potential duplicates in nFS. However, I need to do more research to make sure they're the same person. I've exhausted online sou...

Concerns about new ordinance reservation process

The latest beta nFS introduced a change to ordinance reservation requiring users to reserve all available ordinances for an entire family at the same time in order to “focus on a family” (per the beta instructions). Helping a ward member in new FamilySearch tonight, I was surprised (and a bit dismay...
