For profiles you manage, you can quickly change them (single click for each profile) by getting a list of the profiles you manage (go to FAMILY , select LISTS, from Select a Predefined List, select "managed by me") then, in that list, there is a single click (toggle) to change profiles from public to private or the reverse"
by all means watch the video
My question is: Since I am collaborating with someone on the same tree, why does not all his data go public, even the deceased ones, each one has to be done manually....you almost want to give up. Nadia Moharram
Are Master profiles automatically made "public"?
I'll add my voice to this, with some suggested "rules of thumb" (which could be automated ... and this is in a likely sequence of 'rule testing'):
1) Any profile where the implied age might be >130 => deceased AND public.
2) Any profile which is an ancestor of one meeting criteria #1 => deceased AND public.
3) Any ancestor of a public profile is automatically defaulted to public, if that profile is deceased or the age of that ancestor is indeterminate (i.e.: birth date is not specified).
Note for rules 1-3: Default is set independent of who manages the profile; manager has to explicitly "un-set" if any individual profile should be private.
4) The profile manager can declare a profile as the "root" of a public tree, and all ancestors of that root are set public -- as long as this profile manager has access to do so. (This prevents a distant niece or nephew from declaring everyone public in the related families.)
I think these rules would satisfy most privacy concerns; particularly that of having information about living descendants of a manager defaulting to private.
Perhaps a corollary rule with respect to uploaded 'tree' info -- it is private until the upload is verified, then (once duplicates are resolved) the manager can, with a single selection, have all the above rules applied to the uploaded profile(s) (which also makes them publicly searchable).
Echoing James... I want to make all my managed profiles of deceased people public.
A workaround would be a search to find all deceased profiles I manage, so that I can go through and mark them public manually.
Is either of these this possible?
Yea, seriously, I don't know why there is any reason to have any profiles "private" personally, especially those of folks born before 1900.
Yeah....but is there any way to make ALL the profiles in my family public at the same time?
