Indexing App

Postby csmaughan » Sun Mar 29, 2015 1:45 pm

A while back there was a beta app available for indexing. There are times that I am available to do some indexing but don't have a desktop or laptop with me. Are there still plans to have an indexing app, or at least the ability to index online rather than just through the current indexing application? Is there anything members of the community can help with those?

Yes, indexing should be transitioning to a browser-based program within the next year. They haven't announced any specific dates yet, but they are well on their way with development.

You can access a beta version of the browser-based indexing platform here:

But it doesn't load real data currently; only test data.

Morning, I am wondering if there is any news regarding this? I still only know about the computer app for indexing. Any other options for phone or iPad? Thanks!

No other options yet. The plan is to release a totally new indexing application that will be browser based and will work on tablets such as an iPad, but not on phones.

The new application is mentioned in the FamilySearch blog post 12 Things You Will See from FamilySearch in 2016. The last full article about it that I recall was What’s Happening to the New Indexing Program?
