No way to see reason for rejecting a dismissed hint on a person's profile record.

I just rejected two or three hints with regard to my great grandfather's record. These were new hints that have recently shown up for my ancestor.

After rejecting the hints, I opened the Research Helps screen for him (Henry H Huber L9C6-1GV) and looked at those Dismissed Helps. There is no display of the reason that I dismissed the two Hints that appeared on this display.

That is a major problem because I've had to correct this record before because these hints were previously and mistakenly attached to my ancestor's record.

We need to be able to always see why any research help was dismissed. This needs to be corrected.

  • Originally, the reasons had been installed in different columns and on some cases extremely narrow columns. It appears that they've solve the problem by just removing the reasons completely.

    Sheesh!

    See my suggestion #1 in the following:

    How is it that when a problem is reported, fixes seem to simply make the problem worse?

    Well, when I finally chased down where I could see the reason statement (by clicking on reference in the change log, the reason statement was till in a very narrow column.

    The following images are all related to Henry H Huber L9C6-1GV, my great-grandfather.

    This first image is what appears when I open up Dismissed Helps:


    Uh, okay, what was the reason I dismissed those hints again, or that duplicate?

    The change log has this:


    Okay, what was the record hint that I rejected???

    Finally, when I clicked on Reference, I got this:


    Shades of an unresolved issue. It seems the resolution was to remove the reason statement where it was displayed in a narrow band. But they left the user guessing when that wasn't the case. And yet, there is that narrow band again...

    Uh, what was I talking about?

    I"m sooooo confused!

    Like I wrote elsewhere, this whole thing is a big mess.
