New Feature... Completion Status!

The Footnote team is constantly working on new features for the site. A cool new feature that was added to the site recently is "completion status". Most (but not all) publications will have this and will show how much of a publication is currently available on the site. We think that this will be a big help to everybody out there as it allows users to see if more of a particular publication is still coming.

Here is a blurb from the Footnote site about it:

The completion status graph Indicates the progress we've made in adding images from this title to the Footnote site.

We want to give you access to as many images as we can, so when we add a new title, we begin putting up images as soon as we have them ready and keep working until all the images are posted. We've designed this graph to give you a quick view of how far along we are.

Since some grouped titles (for example: city directories or naturalizations), and even some individual titles, don't have a definite number of images in them, we can't provide a completion number in these cases.

Now that is a great feature. Pity Heritage Quest didn't think of that while they were over 18 months between updates of their census data without a peep.
