Mobile Indexing

Postby seth.wagenman » Sun Jul 18, 2021 7:04 am

Is anyone working on a mobile application for indexing? It might help people with only a few minutes to spare contribute to the effort, like vineyard.churchofjesuschrist.org used to (now defunct):

The church ended the mobile version several years ago because was too labor intensive to set up individual fields for the index (as I understand). One can index today using Web Indexing, though I wouldn't advise it on a phone or small tablet. It really works better when a keyboard is available for data entry.

You could provide feedback from the web-indexing page. You might receive a response on whether they are considering a new method, or you might not.

At FamilySearch.org there is an Indexing menu item in the ribbon near the top of the page.
