Looking for advice -
I have not been able to find an option that tells TreeShare where (what folder) to save the media in. Or, what name to give to the media file.
I save all my media for RM in a Windows/documents/media folder with sub-folders by topic and then by surname. I include the persons name and topic in the file name.
[for example - Tree name/Topic (Birth Certificates)/Surname (Doe)/Media file name(Birth Certificate - John Doe].
I then associate the media file to the person source or event in my RM tree. This makes finding the media item on my computer very easy.
TreeShare brings in media from Ancestry to RM and automatically saves it in a folder named RM Data Files/(Tree Name)-Media/Media File Name. The file name is the identification number of the media from Ancestry.com. There is no file name association to the RM tree person. This will make identifying a media item in the media folder very difficult. Of course, TreeShare links the media item to the person, event, or source in RM.
I can solve the PC file identification problem by tagging the media file in the documents folder on the PC, but this would take a lot of effort to convert the existing media files to this structure, and on going each time new media is brought in from Ancestry.
Are there any RM or Tree Share settings options that can direct TreeShare where to save the media?
Is there a way to manually tell Treeshare the naming convention to use when saving the media file?
Any thoughts appreciated
