September Software Update for Archive Owners
Here’s what we’ve been up to this September to improve your Kindex experience.
New Kindex Content & Features
We updated our Featured Archive Page to contain links to help Kindexers get started, upgrade their plan, and learn more about our featured archives. We also fixed issues that were causing the Featured Archive page to load slowly.
New Transcription Paste Feature
We upgraded our transcription field to allow indexers to paste in text directly from Word, Excel, Google Docs, and Google Sheets. Content from spreadsheets will automatically convert to a table within the transcription editor.
- Resolved issue with content loading into an upgrade modal
- Resolved issue with new users receiving a blank Welcome Email
- Fixed FamilySearch Memory Import function
There have been isolated instances of Kindex Rewards credit not being appropriately applied. Please contact us if you have experienced this.
Tagging Features. We will be making some enhancements to our tagging features, including person list editing and tagging. In order to implement these updates, we will be temporarily removing access to our tagging tool beginning on August 1, 2018, and restored as soon as the features are up and running.
Record Uploads. A small number of users have experienced errors when uploading large batches of records. This can occur when a user navigates away from their Kindex screen during the upload process. Users can avoid this issue by staying on the same screen during record uploads. We will advise when this bug is fixed.
Kindex Plan Migration
We are in the final stages of migrating all Freemium users to our new plans. To retain their archives, users must upgrade to our Cloud or Closet plans. Or, they may downgrade to a Kindexer plan, which does not include a personal archive. Users wishing to temporarily deactivate their archive should downgrade to Kindexer.
Archive Deactivation. Archive owners may now deactivate their archives by downgrading to a Kindexer plan. When a user downgrades to Kindexer, their archive is inactive and unavailable to the archive owner and its collaborators. The archive can be reactivated by changing the user plan to a Closet or Cloud Archive plan. After the upgrade to Cloud or Closet, archive access is restored. Learn more.
Account Migration to new Plans. Kindex Account migration is currently underway. All “Freemium” users will now see a popup after login that directs them to update their archive plan. Users must update to Kindexer, Cloud, or Closet Plans by July 31, 2018.
Learn more about account migration.
