Upcoming Search Feature

Hi all,

I wanted to give you a heads up about an upcoming search feature that we developed in response to some of the feedback we received about search results.

You've requested that we help reduce the scrolling you need to do as you review search results. While there is certainly more we can do, we feel this first project gets us a little closer to where we'd like to be.

Specifically, we are reducing the amount of space taken up in search results for records that are already attached to your online tree when you do a search from your tree. The easiest way to think of it is that where you currently see the green check mark next to a record in search results (because it is already saved to your tree), we will now show a single line of information so you don't need to scroll through all the info you've already reviewed and accepted. Of course, you can still hover over the record to see the full details when you want a reminder.

I've attached a mock of what the feature will (more or less) look like when we release it.
