  • Dashboard Idea Suggestion

    On the Dashboard, I thought this might be a useful message to place in the location I circled in RED.

    Attention: All FTDNA submitters.
    If you want to maximize one of your benefits from submitting DNA.
    Please create a Family Tree or upload a current GEDCOM file to your
    account. That way you can link to others and share relationships.
    Oh, and make new friends or relatives.

    Yes, the space is clearly underutilized

      Constructive Dashboard Suggestion

      I would enjoy viewing a video on my dashboard page showing
      what happens in the FTDNA lab during test processing.

      I think this information would help me better understand the reason(s) behind what I consider, sometimes, unreasonable delays in posting tests results.

      It would lessen wild speculation and possibly lead to suggestions on how accurate result times could be shortened.

      I haven't found video of this nature as yet.

      Thank You

        It must be realised that for many of us we cannot enter a family tree or gedcom because we know, or have strong suspicions of a named father not being the biological male parent (Y-DNA tests). That's why we are trying to find links to other families.

        More frustrating, as I have mentioned before, are the number of people who appear not to upload their results to Y-Search, not respond to e-mails, or having paid good money, have generally not followed up doing anything much with their results. Another gripe are projects that appear to decline to upload results because a surname doesn't match that of the project name. I've been given matches to distance 3 with four people all with the same (common) surname, but not one has responded and only one uploaded results.
