1281Re: [AQ_NFS] Symbols/ Family Tree
- May 5, 2013The Pedigree view's symbols are somewhat dependent upon the
preferences you have set, particularly for Temple Mode:
With Temple Mode on, each name in the Pedigree View and the Family
View will display an icon which indicates the status of the LDS temple
ordinances for that person. With Temple Mode off, these icons will not
show on the Pedigree and Family Views.
You turn temple mode on by going into the FamilySearch menu and
selecting Ordinance Reservation and Tracking System. Then click on
Enable Temple Mode. You turn temple mode off by going to the same
screen and clicking on Disable Temple Mode.
With temple mode on, you will see one of three icons:
- The temple icon with a green arrow indicates that at least one
ordinance is needed, according to your local records.
- The temple icon with a yellow warning sign indicates that no
ordinances are needed, but that at least one ordinance is still in
- The temple icon with a blue checkmark indicates that all ordinances
Be aware that these icons are based upon the information in your local
records, not based upon official temple records. If your records are
up to date with the temple records, then these icons will be accurate.
To verify the accuracy of these icons, you will need to link each
person with the corresonding person in FamilySearch and make sure your
records agree with the official temple records available through
Regardless of which icon is shown, if you click on the icon, it will
add that record to the list on the Reserve Ordinances/Create Batches
screen, where you can verify the official ordinances. If ordinances
are missing on the official temple records, you can then reserve them.
In Preferences (General Tag), if you have "Connect with FamilySearch"
checked, you will see a FamilySearch icon (a tree). If the icon has a
dark background, there is a link to the person in FamilySearch. If the
icon is grayed out, there is no link. Clicking on the link will open
FamilySearch via the AQ interface. You may need to provide your
FamilySearch (LDS) id and password to complete the connection.
You may also see one or more (up to three) colored boxes. This is a
tag feature that Gaylon as provided and how those boxes are used is up
the the AQ user. To reach the Manage Tags screen, Select Tools...
Some of these features are only availalbe in a fully licensed version
of AQ 14.
