We have developed a new view in FamilySearch Family Tree that dramatically increases the amount of information displayed for each ancestor, and gives you new ways to customize how it is displayed. Called “Landscape,” this new view of Family Tree is being rolled out gradually in order to test the capacity of this new feature on our systems.
Because of the gradual release schedule, some users in your center will already have access to this new feature, while others will not. It’s important for you to be able to access Landscape view (if you don’t have access already) in case you receive any questions about it. Below are special instructions for bypassing the release schedule limitation and enabling your account to see the new view.
Here are the steps.
- Go to this URL: https://familysearch.org/cookies
It will ask if you want to “Reset your cookies?” Select YES.
- Go DIRECTLY to this URL:https://familysearch.org/tree/?viptest=true
You will be prompted to login. When complete, you should be on the new landscape view.
The initial response to this new feature has been overwhelmingly positive. You can read more about it on the FamilySearch Blog.
