Is there a way to view who adds info/sources to profiles that I manage?

+14 votes
I would like to be able to see people who help add information to profiles I manage so that I can thank them.  Is there a list somewhere that I am missing that I can look at.  I realize there is the Wiki Genealogy Feed but that includes more than just my profiles.

H Karen, nice to meet you.  Welcome to WikiTree :)

Here is one way to find who had worked on a profile:

On the profile pages you will see a row of green buttons in the middle near the top.  One of them is labeled "Changes".

This might be of some help, but if not or you have more questions please let me know.

Have a super day!

You can also go to your WatchList and use the sorting options to sort them by "Edit Date".

That might help some too :)
Well that was truly easy!  Thanks so much!  Thought I had found all the little nuances of WT and missed the obvious!

We have access to a changes feed called the "Family Activity Feed" that shows all change activity on our Watchlist -- all profiles for which we are on the Trusted List. I think it's called "Family Activity" because it was assumed that we would automatically be on the Trusted Lists for our family members' profiles. That may have been mostly true in the early days of WikiTree, but now many of us have family members whose profiles were created by others.

Your Family Activity Feed is available under the MyWikiTree tab and you can have it appear on your Nav Home Page. It will show edits to the profiles you created. To get your other family profiles onto your watchlist, you need to submit Trusted List requests. There are links on the profile page and under the Privacy tab to the form for submitting a Trusted List request for that particular profile. (Example: Here's the form for your ancestor Mary Ann (Hardin) Dawson.) Hint: Save a copy of the text that you enter on that request form so you can paste it into forms for other people.

Your requests to join Trusted Lists will be logged on your Requests page -- link is found under the MyWikiTree tab.

See Help:Watchlist for more information about the Watchlist and Trusted List requests.

Thanks so much!  I found the list on my Nav page but didn't realize it was the changes to all the profiles.

Really appreciate all your help,

Thank you Linda for selecting my answer as best, your thoughtful interactions on g2g are very appreciated.

But in this case my answer really isn't the best :(

I share a few neat little tricks and a cute graphic... useful stuff.

But Ellen's answer really is the best unless Karen picks another :)

She provided exactly what the person was looking for and explained it in detail very clearly.  It's the answer that people will be looking for and what should be displayed first.

You are doing a wonderful job Linda, thank you so much!!!!!

(please leave this answer as best)
