    When processing completes, the software displays the finished fileset in the Main window.

  • To add multiple grouping criteria, repeat step 6 as many times as needed. The software applies the grouping criteria in order from top to bottom. Files are grouped initially by the first criterion. Next, each group is further sub-grouped by the second criterion, and then each is sub-grouped by the third criterion. The process continues until the software has applied all the criteria.

  • If you selected Run GED Script, the software generates a log file, GED_I-Tools_OnImport.log, and saves it in the TEMP folder on the local computer.

  • During processing, the software analyzes each of the files to determine their relationships to one another. For larger data sets, this process can take several minutes to complete.
