PM name on list of errors

+17 votes
Would it be possible to add a column for the Profile Manager's name on the report output. I have been working on Error 110 and realized I was leaving the same message for the same manager over and over. If the name was in the report could we sort on it and send them one message?

That is not possible at the moment. In new database dump, that Chris is preparing for me, we will also get profile manager, so then it will be possible.

Naming and shaming?
You also have to remember that these PMs are living people, who are quite probably classed as 'Private'.  Don't we run into the Data Protection or Privacy stuff here?
To answer your question, Ros, we're aiming to empower Ales with as much info as possible, but everything he's getting is still subject to our privacy controls. It's nothing more than Google or anyone else with a web browser can see or discern.
Thanks for your swift reply, Chris

Would be good if we could use db_errors to trace when a request to a profile manager was sent and see if we get any feedbacks and how many times we have asked ==> we get an indication if todays WikiTree when its so easy to upload bad profiles and then do nothing is a good solution or we need to start think outside the box 

Errors reported where you need to be PM to fix?!?!

109 Profile should be open (birth date) 18208   221 179 3086 14722    
110 Profile should be open (death date) 1515 639 4 60 141 424 245 2


We have the same problem with changing Last name at Birth I guess

107 Full name in UPPERCASE 2845 1808   25 49 353 593 17  
108 Full name in lowercase 3112 2842 1   6 39 217 7


See also my idea that an Profile manager doing nothing get a question will you still be a profile manager

I try to pay attention to the names of the profile managers when I'm working on 902. If I run into a batch managed by the same person, I might post a message on their profile or send a private message, explaining the situation and asking for their help (and thanking them).
Jillaine, That's what I did, but not until I had already sent a few to the same PM. I think if we can eyeball the PM names on the list and see at a glance who has multiple and just send one message outlining how to fix it, it would help.

One fellow i messaged says he has thousands of profiles to open...I referred him to Paul
