I tend to use Research Targets simply as a link between an Individual etc
and Projects. I haven't very many of either and haven't experimented with
many report setups.
Here are a few of my thoughts.
1. I agree with Murray that RT and Projects might be much better combined.
2. I would like a way go directly from an Individual or Place etc to
3. I started trying to enter searches in RT, but found as someone has
already said, that sources are added to the Source list, '' The blue clergy
book that I lent to cousin Jo'' doesn't look quite right and I wouldn't want
it included in my source List. Would it be possible for RT to have it's own
source List, with a tick box '' add to my main Source List''? I like to
use my Source List just for Sources already attached to an Event etc (and
that I've had time to think out how to format properly <g>)
4. As the setup is now, a way to link directly from RTs to Projects would
be a great help and an easier way to link from Projects to RTs would be an
5. If we could have some sort of 'what I want to search' and 'what I have
searched' added to Projects, that would be ideal for me. I know you can do
this now by linking to a RT, but the whole process is just too complicated
and fiddly, having to move backwards and forwards between Projects and RT.
In addition to it's intended use, I've found Projects a handy place to
store all sorts of bits of information. Having said all this, I have to
admit that when I'm in a hurry I type 'Todo' in the research note field and
then search for them late<g>
