Order of the data in the "Unit & Rank" table
The populating of this data can be haphazard. Unfortunately, what is showing up is data in "last inputted" order, rather than in date order, and the resulting mess is unsightly. I've had one instance where the man has an older unit and service number added, and this has overwritten the original MIC detail

Agreed. Needs sorting! - a Private could rise to General but currently he would only be seen in an earlier rank if that data is added later
It is the same with all date related things such as spouses, children, siblings, addresses, occupations.. The order is that which they are input with no way of sorting into date order.. CRAZY! and a fundamental design flaw!!

It is the same in "Other Military Service Events" which means you could never insert an event discovered later in the mans correct order of events, however significant that event.
