FamilySearch Icons

Throughout Legacy and Legacy FamilySearch (when you have the FamilySearch option turned on), icons are used to show the current status of various features in FamilySearch.  The meaning of these icons is explained below:

Synchronization Icons
There are five icons that show the current status of synchronization between the information for a person in Legacy and the information for that person in FamilySearch.

The Legacy person has not been matched with anyone in FamilySeach.  You can click the icon to start the process of finding a matching person in FamilySearch to link to.
The Legacy person is matched to someone in FamilySearch but Legacy has information that FamilySearch doesn't have and FamilySearch has information Legacy doesn't have.  Click the icon to go to the Share Data screen.
The Legacy person has information that FamilySearch does not have.  If you want to share the information with FamilySearch, click the icon to go to the Share Data screen.
The matching person in FamilySearch has information that your Legacy person doesn't have.  Click the icon to go to the Share Data screen.
Your Legacy person and the matching person in FamilySearch are synchronized (or you have indicated that you don't want to share anymore information between the two).
Your Legacy person has been auto-matched with a person in FamilySearch. You should check these matches to make sure they are correct.

Duplicate Icon
The presence of this icon indicates that there are potential duplicates in FamilySearch who have not yet been combined.  Clicking this icon takes you to the Possible Duplicates tab where you can combine (or reject) them.
 
 The presence of this icon indicates that there were potential duplicates in FamilySearch but you have selected to skip combining them.

Temple Ordinance Icons
Indicates that all available temple ordinances have been completed.  (It doesn't mean that ALL the ordinances have been completed, just that all the ordinances that can currently be done are completed.)
Indicates that there is at least one ordinance that can be reserved for this person.  Clicking the icon takes you to the Ordinance Status screen where you can make the reservation and print the Family Ordinance Request (FOR) form.
Indicates there is some ordinance work that has already been reserved (my you or someone else) that is in progress.  When the ordinances have been completed, Legacy will change the icon to completed.
Indicates that more information is needed in order to make one or more ordinances ready to qualify for being reserved.  This can be a missing date or location, or missing spouse or parent information.

Other Icons
Click on this icon to pop up a window with detailed information about the event.
Indicates that this event is shared from another individual.
Indicates that this person is linked to someone in FamilySearch.
Indicates that this person is not linked to anyone in FamilySearch.
Indicates that this person might be linked to the wrong person in FamilySearch.

Indicates that this person is marked as Living in your family file thus no temple ordinances can be done.
