The beta test for the August release of New FamilySearch (NFS) started last Friday and Ron Tanner, product manager, gave attendees to his presentation at the UVPAFUG meeting Saturday an advance pique at some of the new features.
New Temple Ordinances Tab
The old Temple Ordinances tab looks like this:
The new Temple Ordinances tab has been taken from FamilySearch Family Tree, where it has garnered great user response. It will look like this:
This new temple ordinance tab has several advantages:
- Accumulating names prior to printing Family Ordinance Requests (FORs)
- Reprinting FOR
- Reassigning ordinances from the temple back to yourself (if temple hasn’t yet printed card)
- Removing (cancelling) reserved ordinances
- Sorting and resizing columns
- Reserving all ordinances for an individual, including sealings
Family group records do not automatically show all sources. Instead, you can click a link to the sources and display or print them separately.
The new Temple Ordinances tab requires Adobe Flash Player version 9.0.115 or newer. If you are unable to use the FamilySearch Family Tree Project, you will also not be able to use the new Temple Ordinances tab.
See my previous article, “NFS Rollout News: Ron Tanner Presentation,” for information from the presentation about the NFS rollout. Tanner went on to talk extensively about possible future features. I’ll talk more about those in an upcoming article. Stay tuned…
