TOPIC: Getting person's ID number

Getting person's ID number 8 years 11 months ago #1

What is the easiest way to get a person's ID number. The problem that I'm running into is that I have to go and search for a ID# when a user registers an account so that I can attach them to their record. Right now, I've been pulling up a report and typing in their name an letting Auto Fill bring up the ID#, then copy/pasting it back.

Is there an easier way to go about this.

Also, I think the Auto Fill should work this same way in the Admin Control Panel.

I normally just go to their page and then copy/paste from the url. It's fairly quick.

I agree that it would be nice to have autocomplete for that. If I recall correctly the original PGV admin did have autocomplete but that seems to have been dropped at some point in webtrees.

It is intended to do so, as it is intended to restore the lookup we previously had before going to 'inline editing'. However, we have not yet found a way to include it with the inline editing. Still looking. Fortunately, even on my 400+ user site, this is a pretty infrequent event and pretty easy to look up and snag from the URL after a search.

Never noticed it in the URL, that will be helpful.

Thanks.
