Managing Data tutorial

manageA new tutorial has just been published in the Learning Center. As we work through our research, we occasionally need to edit or delete data that was previously entered. This tutorial teaches users how to edit or delete various items in the log. Most of the data is managed through the lists and is accessible from the “List” icon on the blue toolbar. Objectives, Searches, and Results are managed through the “Search” function. This allows the user to easily locate the desired item, especially after the log contains a large volume of material.

Link to Learning Center

Learn CtrWe have added a link to the Learning Center so users can access the tutorials while they are signed in to their account. Click on your user menu and select “Learning Center.” Keep that feedback coming!

Program speed

Clock-IconYou may have noticed some slowness in the program recently. We have been working on it, and you should have seen some improvement today. We will continue to work on the efficiency of the site, and I hope you will have patience as we get everything launched. This is all very new, and we’re working hard! I appreciate the enthusiastic response we are receiving. As always, feel free to send feedback and suggestions to the support (at) email address.

Adding Searches tutorial

The ResearchTies Learning Center has a number of PowerPoint tutorials to help users get started with this new software. Tonight, a tutorial has been uploaded to explain the process of adding searches to your objectives. Previous tutorials include: An Overview, Getting Started, Adding Sources and Repositories, and Adding Objectives. Spend a few minutes in the ResearchTies Learning Center to quickly get up to speed on recording your research logs efficiently and effectively. More information will continue to be added, so be sure to watch the site for more helpful tips.

*2 Important Tips for Getting Started*

When beginning a new account, it is important for new users to know two things:

1. If you use the Gedcom import function, it is highly recommended that you import fewer than 100 people. Import or add only those individuals you are actively researching. You can always add more as you expand your research or bring in previous work.

2. When beginning your data entry, you need to know that the fields with the green add button are dropdown lists.


Always select from the dropdown list. If the desired entry is not in the list, click the green add button and a template will open to add the item. After saving, the new item will be in the dropdown. In a new log, many of the lists will be empty. Be sure to use the add button to begin building your list options.
