WeRelate:Suggestions/Streamline Add Source


When I add a source part of the information I am allowed to specify, on the "Step 2. Review possible matches" screen, is "Surname:" and "Subject:". If I fill in these fields, and then add (even if I search again in between to make sure the system has captured my input), the data does not make it onto the newly created Source page. On the other hand, the one piece of information that I almost always want to enter (for books anyway) is year of publication and that is never asked for. Year of publication is very important for copyright considerations. This means I must also do a follow-on edit to add the year of publication when it seems like it might be a simple addition to allow this to be put in earlier on in the process? --Jrich 12:51, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

I'll do this. I'm trying to finish a new similar-name function this week; as soon as that's ready, I'll work on this and the parents/spouse name that we talked about in another suggestion.--Dallan 19:28, 1 November 2011 (EDT)
