Gotcha, now. I was under the impression that you were saying it wouldn't
show up 'anywhere' in the witness record.
"The bottom line is, you can't step through the events in your own life
and see the events you witnessed, since the events tab only shows you
some of the events, not all. And if you limit yourself to viewing your
individual summary tab, Genbox will not tell you the most important
thing about the event you witnessed--whose death it was."
That's true. The only way I know to do that right now is by running an
Individual Narrative Report.
"If these observations are correct, it speaks to the way information is
presented. So does Misty Bogle's post last night about customizing the
I would say that these observations are correct. It is obvious that the
witness feature is more evolved in TOP. Genbox's implementation could
probably use some refinement. That's probably why I haven't made using it a
priority, yet. <g>
Most importantly, since this is on your mind, instead of doing it LIKE TOP,
how could Genbox do it BETTER than TOP?
