- Arbitrators: if you download a batch where key A or Key B is totally empty. Send back the batch that is empty. Do not try to index it to "fix it" and then submit it. What happens is the data sets do not match. This means that the empty batch, even though you indexed it, would be returned to be re-indexed again, so you would be wasting your time. Remember that Arbitrators are not suppose to be Indexing , they are suppose to be matcing the lines, and editing the typos on the records.
- Indexers: You may download a batch that is completely finished. You should check this batch carefully to make sure it is correct then submit it. These batches were also part of the problem of data sets not matching, that was caused by the move.
- WWII RECORDS: As soon as they fix the problem with the arbitration of these records I am sure we will be seeing more to be indexed.
