Hello,

Thank you for your wonderful tree project.

I noticed you just started the COPY-ID great idea.

Now if I start with the ID (Covey-1449), not the profile.. how do I find them?

When I try to search by last name, I get a list of names and dates, no ID number...

When I put the ID number into the last name search window, I get no results found..

What is the Easy way to type in the ID and get to the profile?

Thank you and great progress.

Stay safe.

You can also go to the menu, choose Find-->Search, scroll down to option 4 then put the userID in double-quotes and click go, but that's not fantastic. In my case, it finds all the pages which have my personal maintenance categories too, so could potentially be a list of stuff you don't care about.

Side note, this is on the Trello board in the Up Next column, so the tech team is working on this.

We plan on adding it soon(ish).

Edit: oops... remind me to refresh the page before answering next time :D
