SIT Suggestion.
« Reply #45 on: Thursday 31 May 07 21:40 BST (UK) »
Firstly, this is an awesome piece of work. I stumbled on the SIT today and my looking-for list was already in there. A most impressive piece of programming! :)

I have two probably simple requests:

1. In the list of matches, could you highlight (perhaps bold, perhaps coloured, perhaps sorted) those connections in the same county as mine? If the town is the same then even more highlighting.

2. In the list of matches, could you not bother to show me?

Paul

I suppose the question is how much longer are you willing to wait for your results while the extra searches are carried out and is it worth the extra rootschat resource that it would take up?

I agree David,

If any of these require costly joins on the tables I would be happy to do without but if they are easily implemented in post-processing then to me they would be worthwhile purely on a UI basis.

Thanks  :) :) :) :)

1. In the list of matches, could you highlight (perhaps bold, perhaps coloured, perhaps sorted) those connections in the same county as mine? If the town is the same then even more highlighting.

1. is definitely a 'NO !' for now.  Too much work, too little time. Sorry  :)

2. In the list of matches, could you not bother to show me?

2. is now Done  :) :)

I've done it by using the slightly simpler option of just not showing anything, if you have a name which no-one is else is searching for.
The second option would be to have a name (e.g. O'Crikey) in the Surname Interest column, but an empty space in the RootsChatter column.
This can also be done, but I expect whichever method I use, somebody will want it the other way round.  ::)
 
I can only test this using my names, so let me know if it's not working properly

What I would find most useful would be a date entered or amended against each SIT entry, even if it was just month and year.  This would much enhance my ability to search the entries.
