2) Member connect - This is coming in the next few weeks. To be honest, we'd received very little feedback about people wanting to keep this feature until we showed the banner announcing that we'd retire the old viewer. Since then we've received a meaningful amount of requests for it and decided it's worth including.
Is there a revised timeline for when this feature will be added to the new viewer? I have used the feedback link to request this feature multiple times, since the very first time I used the new viewer with the release of the 1940 census over a year ago.
