Beginners and queries during the importation process
« on: April 10, 2018, 08:04:39 »
Unfortunately, the different queries that are asked when importing (loading the existing GEDCOM of the previous application) are neglected.
It is a 'blind flight' because I do not know where the journey is going - in what form my data will be changed (what will be like 'corrected').
>>>
After having removed from my GEDCOM the imports from non-existent media, Ancestris can read them.

Hi,
As I told you on the IRC, last time we chatted, to be able to create an importation module for your previous software, we need to have a sample of a gedcom created with it. That's the first point.
Second, to add to the video, the replies to the queries you can be asked, I have to know which queries you have, and I have to test on my side the best appropriated solutions.
Do you have two of three examples of the queries you've been asked? if so, post them here, and we will try to add to the gedcom loading process better explanation to guide the user. Francois

Thank you!
I did some ScreenShots to see it visually. I can write off the most important points and publish them here, ok?
Later, after gardening ...

Hi,
Post here the problems and improvements you would like to see, but please if you have screenshots, send them to me "francois@ancestris.org". It takes too much room for the forum. Thanks. Francois

Hello, short garden break. I'll do it in the evening!

As soon as Ancestris can read my GEDCOM file unhindered, I will put my questions to the entry and to the preferences here.
