Is there any way to "disable" TreeShare from the RM to Ancestry direction?  I have quite a bit of information in RM that I would never upload to Ancestry - ranging from people to various private facts about people.  I use Ancestry as a research tool and primarily want to use TreeShare to download information to RM and not to upload information to Ancestry.

 

Every time I run TreeShare it includes all this RM information that I don't want to upload to Ancestry and I can't find any way to mark these people as Not Changed to exclude them from the TreeShare routines.  This clutters up the TreeShare interface and makes the update process pretty tedious - especially after the People column is filled with People I will never upload to Ancestry - and then I have to start using the scroll or a letter key to quickly get down to the next person to update from Ancestry to RM.

 

Any tips or suggestions?  I would love a switch or option to turn off the RM to Ancestry direction - or at least a method to always exempt certain people from TreeShare.

You can filter the TreeShare index to show only a selected group of people. However, it cannot filter out a group.

You could create a group that filters out the people you don't want. Select everyone and then use the "UnMark Group" option.

I was thinking of an exclusion group. RM supports only inclusion groups and only one at a time. So this would be an enhancement. Show only those people in the database who are outside of the group. Effectively a group of everyone less a selected group.

 

Groups could be enhanced to support Venn diagrams (Set Theory) involving multiple groups and all the logical relationships: inclusion, exclusion, intersects... Effectively, a group of groups all based on rules and tracking that support refreshing the memberships as the database evolves... (oh, there's "dynamic groups" rearing its long wished-for head again)
