We need an easy visual way to know that a person has discussions posted on them

put an asterisk next to discussion in the summary page (if there is one, obviously) so that a researcher can easily see if there are discussions or not for a specific person

  • The indicator should show up in more than just the Summary screen, in particular also the Details screen. Perhaps after the dates parentheses after the individual's name would be a suitable place.

    I agree. I believe that you are already considering ways to identify individuals that have discussions. I would suggest two places for the identification. One would be great but two would be truly awesome. First, In both the Family Pedigree with Details view and the Tree view I would suggest the asterisk or some other appropriate symbol be attached to any name on the pedigree that has a discussion. The pedigree is normally the first place one looks and would give a much better idea at a glance just which ancestors do or do not have discussions attached. The second place would be on the gray Discussion tab (just below the Possible Duplicates tab) on the left hand side of the details section. This could be as simple as changing the color of the Discussions tab if there was a discussion attached. Thanks for considering this Idea.

    Now that there are some ideas, the question is what Salt Lake will decide to do and when?
    • I had an opportunity to work with and talk to some of the FamilySearch engineers, supervisors and other FamilySearch employees at the recent RootsTech conference. Based on that and the results/help that I have received I know that they do read our comments and ideas. I believe that the ideas we have submitted will be implemented (at least in part) as soon as they can. I know from my own programming experience that what seems like a simple programming change or update is often much more complicated and takes much longer than was at first anticipated. I also know that jumping from one thing to another (to fight fires as it were) actually takes longer than finishing each scheduled project or update in it's turn. I'm confident that we will see good changes in this area. I am willing to wait for a good update rather than a quick one that needs to be fixed again later.

    There is no way to know if a discussion exists about a person other than to click on each name and check. It would be helpful to have some sort of symbol by the person's name, like the former dispute circle. Otherwise, the discussion feature is useless.

    Since we can no longer "dispute" entries but now have to start or join a "discussion" on an individual that we feel has wrong or inaccurate info wouldn't it be nice to mark the name as was done when there was a disput! Otherwise how would anyone know there were questions on that individual?

    There needs to be a way to tell if there is a discussion for individuals in new family search other than clicking on the discussion button as people don't look at it before making changes. I had a great-grandfather listed with the wrong parents and spent hours separating records, wrote a discussion and finally had to send feedback to get the parents removed. Three days later the records were combined again because they didn't read the discussion.

    I use family search more than 3 days a week and quite a number of those hours. I am also the ward family history consultant and I realized a lot of people who do research don't pay much attention to the discussion bar. I think it would be a good idea to find someway of putting an asterik or some kind of notification that there are discussions in that box. Right now it appears that not many of our members are using it at all.

    Thanks

    Please add a visible indicator to the Discussion Tab as well as Individual Notes link in New FamilySearch that makes it clear if there are discussions or notes about a person. Otherwise we can put information there but no one is ever going to see it or add to a discussion because it's too cumbersome to check the discussion tab on every person you look at.

    It would be very useful to have a flag on the discussion tab when a discussion is entered there. Without a flag no one looks at discussions and therefore it is not as useful as it could be. The message that comes to our email is OK but one only sees that when you are in your eamail. Then you are doing something else and it is not convenient to go back to Nefamily serch.

    It is difficult to see when a post is created under the discussions entry on the left-side column.

    Why not have the word "discussions" change in some way when there is a post?

    For instance, the word "discussions" might change to a bold and italic font.

    The word could change to a different color -- for example the font might be green.

    This idea would enable researchers to know right away which individuals have any posting under their discussion link.

    I hope you will consider this idea as it is sometimes time consuming to have to check each individual in a family to see if discussions have been posted.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Best wishes,

    Mary Scott

    Please provide an indicator to show that a record has a posting under discussions for an individual--perhaps as PAF does to indicate that an event has sources, or that a record contains notes. Currently, discussion topics, which may contain important notices or questions, mostly go unnoticed unless the patron just happens to wonder if a Discussion posting has been made.

    • The "watch" feature is a different aspect. For instance, I might put a "watch" on an ancestor if I am waiting to see whether other relatives are adding and/or editing the information. We need the discussion comments to explain why we should be aware of certain records or avoid merging two people with the same name.
    • The Watch feature is nice, but does not serve the function that we are asking for--the discussion icon needs to change color or have a star by it or SOMETHING that would indicate when we are looking at an individual that there has been a discussion posted. I didn't realize this would be such a hard thing for the programmers to do, so will try to be patient.

    Please, please consider these points about ways to show whether an individual has discussion comments. (BTW, I feel the same way about indications to point out if descendants are entered for an individual.)

    I think that the software engineers have done a good job with New FamilySearch but they need to make it as useful as possible for those of us who are using the website to enter information and submit names for temple ordinances.

    This request to have the discussion tab is not a whim.

    Kind words will not ease the frustrations which come to researchers who only have hopes that another patron will notice the discussions before changing names or merging individuals into generational "loops" because of the same name or some other similarity. We can write notes, post discussions, etc. but other researchers may never see them -- unless there is a obvious change in color, font, added symbol, etc.

    Software engineers need to realize that researchers lose a lot of time because we have to constantly check and re-check information.

    We need to recognize the value of these suggestions because they are coming from people who use New FamilySearch faithfully and for the purpose to which it was intended.

    We need to be able to work "smarter and faster" if we are going to achieve the goals that the Church has asked us to do -- ie., submitting and completing the temple ordinances for our kindred dead.
    • Yesterday while on New FamilySearch, I discovered that someone(s) had merged the two wives of my ancestor.

      One wife has no name and I simply used Mrs. with her husband's name several months ago. They had at least one son, maybe two.

      The second wife was born 10 years after the son and was the mother of several children. We know her name and her parents' names. She could not be the wife of the son because he was born in 1795 and she was born in 1804.

      I separated the families the best I could and also added discussion notes. Perhaps someone will notice but I feel a bit hopeless.

      One day I might go back and find the two women merged again.

      If there was a symbol, color change, or something to encourage me to read the discussion notes these two women would be distinguished from one another.

      Instead, without the discussion notes changing in some way, I worry that I will be doing the same tasks in three or four months. The hour or more than I spend writing discussion notes and separating two individuals could be time used in more productive ways.

      Please, please do something to mark the discussion tab so everyone will kinow that there has been information added.

    When information is offered in the Discussion area, please show that there is something to read beyond the button "Discussion," such as, bolding "Discussion," or a number indicating the number of discussions available. All of the other "buttons" in that column produce something, but most of the time "Discussion" draws a blank.

    Somehow flag/mark the discussions, source and note sections when good information has been added. Many of those I work with now don't remember to check these areas because most of the time, there is nothing helpful there. But they are missing important information that has been included by a patron that helps to explain the information that is there. For an example see PID KN14-NTG

    I agree that you can put a watch on any file, however that does not solve the problem. It is not practical to put a watch on everyone in a tree. Also, when searching for persons outside my tree, or combining records, I would like to know if someone else has placed a discussion on these records. In the next update to the program, please consider highlighting in some way the Discussion tab, as a means of drawing attention to it when a note is there. At this time I suspect that over 99% of the records do not have discussions attached, and therefore feww look at the Discussion tab.

  • I do not have an issue with having the discussion tab marked so you can see if a discussion exists - in fact I believe it is the correct thing to do. However, it is not reasonable to ask the system to advise you when anything changes in your tree. That is what the watch function is for. Just think if you go back 4 or 5 generations - that individual is in thousands of trees and so to send information to everyone is impossible.

    To gasmodels:

    I don't feel that we are asking the "system to advise us when anything changes in the tree". Watch function does that now when anything is added/changed on that person's information. Besides, it's my understanding the emails for Watch only go to the person/persons that have indicated they want a notice, not to everyone that is linked to that person.

    The reason to mark the discussion tab to somehow draw attention to it would be the one big reason that we wouldn't need an email. When we got to that "page" or person, it would pop out at us and we would then know to look at the dicsussion tab.

    Causal users today (and there are many that only use it "ocassionally" of "once since we had access") don't even think about looking for duplicates, let alone to look and see if there are discussions on the person. In fact often when I am working with someone they aren't even aware there IS a discussion tab.

    It's frustrating when you are working with someone in the FHC and all they want to do is print a request...they do not want any investigation or look over the account. We try to explain the concerns (duplicates and discussions) and steps to assuring work has not already been completed...they listen and then do what they want. If that tab was marked, perhaps this would call attention to the fact that discussions have been added and, depending on how it is marked, it would give enough appearance of IMPORTANCE to the tab and they would then look to see what is written.

    It does say that this is "under consideration" , they haven't said no yet, so lets just keep adding our concerns and maybe it will still bear fruit for us!

    I have noticed in my own work and in the comments of others that there is a problem with people combining records "just to combine records". Somehow they seem to feel that everything needs to be combined. Perhaps the combine feature could be changed to Require valid contact information and a reason for combining the records. The reason could be simply a radio button selection for several options...but at least it would require some reasoning and justification for the action. I would like to see the contact information of the person doing the combining, the reason for the combine action and a list of the PID numbers combined in the next Watch notification that is produced.

    It would be a great help if when discussions are added on a person that there would be a symbol added next to that person so that we know right away there is a comment to view. When we were able to dispute, the circle with the line helped us to know right away there was a possible problem

    I'm happy to see that disputes are going away, but I'm hoping that in the process you will add some type of "flag" to alert us to discussions that have been entered. A simple asterisk after the word Discussions is all it would take. Could you make the asterisk appear automatically whenever a discussion is added, whether it be a legacy dispute or a new discussion?

    The site GENI.com has an excellent display for discussions and when a discussion is made it goes right to the contributor's mailbox. I and everybody involved receives my discussion and I also get an email when a contributor replies to my discussion. I never thought I would lead FamilySearch to other sites for a lesson, but so far GENI.com and http://www.gencircles.com/globaltree can teach the church a few things.

    I am wondering if it would be most beneficial to have an icon, symbol or other marker such as highlightened text, connected to the father's surname on the pedigree screen, which would indicate that someone in that family has a discussion on them.

    Then when you go to the "Parents and Siblings" or "Spouses and Childrens" screen it would also be indicated by the person's name who has a discussion on them.

    My main reasons for doing it this way, is that a lot of people start from the pedigree page and a lot of people are interested in discussions on more than one family member in the same family.

    Not only would it be nice for the 'discussion' tab to indicate a discussion has been started when we are looking at an individuals information, but also when we are looking at an entire family (spouses and children tab) that there is some kind of indication by each individual name, either an * or 'D', by their name. ALSO, when we are looking at possible dupes, the same indicator needs to be present so we can click on the indicator, and check out the discussion before we combine the record.

    Yes, I think brguest's suggestion is excellent. We shouldn't have to wonder and click every individual to find discussions. Hopefully this need will be addressed soon! We are frustrated with the lack of action on this obviously important issue.

  • When I put items up for discussion they seem to be not reviewed. Is there a way to flag or highlight that items are listed in discussion so they won't be ignored?

  • When people use the Discussion area, could the the word Discussion be another color or highlighted to show there is information there?

  • Suggestion:
    Would it be feasible to have an asterisk (*) or other symbol appear beside the term “Discussion” and /or “Notes” when something has been typed in that field? (Not just system generated; but put there by a thinking, human person)?

    Maybe the word "Discussions" could flash if there are discussions present or you could put a number beside "Discussions" to show how many discussions have been posted.

    I would like the "Discussions" button to have some star or other indicator appear letting the patron know there are discussion items to consider.

    There seems to be considerable interest in "flagging" an active Discussion. We need more input from familysearch as to where they stand currently on advancing this needed feature.

    Yes, we really would like to hear when we can expect to see this feature. I'm not trying to use FamilySearch until this happens. It is far too frustrating!

    For me the bigger issue has always been what is 'in' the discussion potentially impacting someone who is attempting to combine records. I just got done reviewing the document "The Case for Moving to 'Our Tree'" https://help.familysearch.org/kb/guid.... It is not clear from this document exactly what the architectural design decision has been for the entire concept of combined records.

    As well, discussions is entirely architecturally unstable, because in the current design a discussion is attached to but 1 record. If that record gets separated out -- the discussion goes with it. In some cases this would be desired, in other cases, not.
