Test Data for NFS Program

Postby techgy » Sun Feb 21, 2010 2:59 pm

When attempting to train new users, it would be helpful if the New Family Search program (NFS) had a test database that could be used. This would permit experimentation and learning w/o the danger of a user's actual data.

Has this ever been considered? During the beta period experimental databases were available. Could something like this be implemented as a test database?

Ask and ye shall receive. I just got a email stating that consultants have access to such a site.

I'd like to be able to state that I was inspired when I made the suggestion, but I don't think I can take that much credit. Anyway, great news! I checked and I have the same Email notice.

We're finishing up a 3 week Family History class this coming Sunday so this new resource will be great for an ending session as well as our next go-around.
