Cannot add a different identifier to a record


When creating a new record I cannot see a field to add an alternative or secondary identifier. It autofills me as the recorder and identifier. Is this facility not available to self-recorders or have I missed something?


Due to data protection this is not possible at the moment and is one of the challenges we’re facing with the PASt Explorers programme. We can’t let people not employed by the Scheme have access to all the names on the system, the addresses help disambiguate them. If you want the details changed, when you ask the FLO to promote the record, send them a note telling them what you need set in the correct fields.


Many thanks Dan. Understood.


Super, I know it is a convoluted process, but best we can do for now.
