Shared and waiting ordinances on same reserved line

In the temple all reserved list, could the shared ordinances of one person and waiting ordinances of the same person be combined to one line? Years ago SS was listed twice (once under the bride and once under the groom), but it was changed to only be listed once which is very efficient. I was hoping we could have the other ordinances be more efficient as well. Thanks

    The temple list contains only those ordinances that you have reserved. There are gaps in the ordinances at times because I did not reserve the intiatory ordinance. Someone else did and so the Endowment and sealing to parents are waiting for those to be completed.

    The break in lines can occur when ordinances have been reserved at different times or one ordinance has been shared with the temple while the others are being held by me. This may seem unusual, but the fully certified program I use can actually split ordinances as either for me to do or to share with the temple. FamilySearch, at the present time, cannot do that, so all the individual's ordinances will show up on the same line .

    The Sealing to Spouse is a bit different and if you look at the following

  • I have reserved all of the ordinances. I share one ordinance at a time. Therefore the same person is listed in two lines. One for the shared ordinances and one for the waiting which is why I'm asking for them to be combined on one line since it is the same person.
    I have called family search to suggest this but they told me to come here.
    This isn't a question I need answered. This is a suggestion to make the website more efficient.

    The Sealing to Spouse is a bit different and if you look at the following, you will see that the sealing to spouse cannot be combined with the individual's ordinances for himself. That is because the display is set up to show you as much detail as possible with regard to what sealing ordinances are involved.


    Finally, the entire ordinance and temple system are being reworked because they are using "borrowed" code from the previous system (newFamilySearch) and it does not have the ability to "scale" (grow or shrink according to need) and has a messy way of supplying names to the temples (it is set up to push names manually when a temple requests names and as such, shared temple names are sent to the temple district in which a patron lives). The new software will allow the temples to pull the number of ordinances they need from the entire temple shared list not just those that patrons living within the temple district shared. This will allow more efficient ordinances to be performed in the order that they were shared -- First share, first pulled by the temple. The new programming will also take care of "stuck" ordinances that are sometimes in the system for a decade or longer. All of this is according to Ron Tanner, who talked about this initiative to program a new reservation and temple ordinance system.

    We do not know what that system will look like, but it may include your request to show all of the ordinances for a person on one line. Sealing to spouse(s) will still need to be displayed on their own line, especially when a person is married a number of times to different spouses.

  • My reserved list is artificially large because of this
    • I understand.

      Right now, the developers are involved with producing new software for all of this. Eventually (with a year, which would be mid 2019), according to Ron Tanner, we will have a new system.

      As I said, they may include the ability to post all the individual ordinances on one line, but right now, that is not available.
