      This may be a message for Gaylon, or maybe the feature is already there and
      I don't know about it.



      It would be extremely useful if I had a method to determine if my record has
      changed since it was last circulated. I am not referring to changes made in
      nFS but in changes made to my local record. I find I do a lot of
      unnecessary reviewing because I don't know if my local record has been
      changed and should be re-synced.



      My choice would be to have this feature in 2 ways:

      1. A symbol on the family screen that identifies a record as "changed
      since last synced".
      2. The ability to search and sort on the "changed since last synced"
      field.



      Would others find this a useful feature?

      It can be a problem at a FHC when users run AQ and it is not as they expect. Our solution was 1. We defined the preferences and other things as we would like

        It can be a problem at a FHC when users run AQ and it is not as they expect.
        Our solution was

        1. We defined the preferences and other things as we would like to have
        them.
        2. We wrote a batch file and placed it on every computer.
        3. We placed the preferred AQ on one computer
        4. We created a desktop icon that will run the batch file.
        5. The batch file loads AQ on the computer and runs AQ.
        6. Now a patron can modify the preferences any way he/she wishes. The
        next time the program is run it will revert to our selected preferences.
        7. If we want to change any of the 'standard' preferences we need only
        change our master file.

        me,
        fonts, icons, etc. I can see that if AQ is installed on a public
        computer -- like in a library or a FHC, that each user may want
        different preferences. We'll have to give this some thought.

        In the meantime, a lot of FHCs 'clean' their computers often -- meaning
        they remove databases, or perform a process that completely refreshes
        the computer. A complete refresh would presumably set AQ's preferences
        to initial settings. If a FHC staff member would include deleting the
        preferences file for AQ when the databases are flushed, then this would
        set AQ to a default state for at least the first person to use the
        computer after such a cleaning.
