Today’s Release: Approving Merges and Project Tags

Posted August 2, 2012 by Amanda | 17 Comments

Today we’re releasing enhancements to merge requests and projects that’ll make collaboration a little easier. Read below for the details.

Approving Merges

We’re making it a little easier to grow your family tree by expanding permissions for approving merges to everyone. For a limited time, all users will be able to approve a merge for free. This means that Basic and Plus users will be able to complete merge requests for private profiles and unconnected trees and finally merge into the World Family Tree!

Remember, this enhancement is only for accepting merge requests. Basic and Plus users will not be able to request merges. The merge permissions for Pro members will remain the same.

Project Tags

We made some improvements to project tags. A tag can consist of simple keywords that are related to the project. Project tags can be found to the right of the page above Related Projects.

Click on a tag to see a list of all other projects that have that same tag. This makes it even easier to find a list of all related projects.

In addition to these changes, we released a few more enhancements and fixes. To check out today’s full release notes, please visit the Announcements section in our Help Center.
