Activity Feeds

Categories: WikiTree Help

Activity feeds enable you to track changes on WikiTree. Here are the different kinds of feeds.

Contents

Changes to a Profile

Every profile has its own activity feed, the Changes page.

Click the Changes tab on the profile to see it. This displays all the activity related to that particular profile.

Click here for more information on the Changes page.

Contributions by a Member

Every WikiTree member has their own activity feed, their Contributions list.

Click the Contributions link on an active member's profile. You'll find it near the top of the left column below the [private message] link.

Click here for more information on Contributions lists.

Family Activity Feed

Click the Family Activity Feed link in your "My WikiTree" menu to see a full list of changes to profiles in your Watchlist.

Recent activity in your Watchlist also appears on your Navigation Home Page.

Once a week, a summary of the activity is e-mailed to you. This summary excludes changes that you yourself have made.

If your Family Activity Feed is overwhelming, you may want to cut down the size of your Watchlist. Use this form to remove yourself from Trusted Lists.

G2G Feed

Click the G2G Feed link in your "My WikiTree" menu to see a list of questions and answers in the Genealogist-to-Genealogist (G2G) Q&A Forum that have been tagged with a surname or project tag that you are following.

Once a day, a summary of the G2G activity is e-mailed along with your Wiki Genealogy Feed.

Surname Activity Feed

You can see all the recent changes made to profiles with any given surname. Here is the feed for Smith. From there you can enter any other surname.

Thank-You Feed

We also have feeds for Thank-Yous. You can view all the thank-yous received for a particular contribution or all the thank-yous received by you or another member. Click the small "thank-yous received" link on any member's profile.

Once a week, recent thank-yous are e-mailed along with your Family Activity Feed.

Wiki Genealogy Feed

Click the Wiki Genealogy Feed link in your "My WikiTree" menu to see a list of changes to all profiles with the surnames that you are following.

Recent activity in your followed surnames also appears on your Navigation Home Page.

Once a day, a summary of the activity is e-mailed to you. The e-mail update also includes Genealogist-to-Genealogist (G2G) Forum activity in the surnames and other tags you're following, and also members who added the tag in the past 24 hours.
