In Family Tree, what do the map pin icons and exclamation points by place-names mean?

On the Family Tree person page (on the FamilySearch website), different icons appear next to the the names of places to indicate how and whether the place is standardized.

  • Pin: The place is standardized. The user-entered place-name is identical to the standard.
  • No pin: The place is standardized. The user-entered place-name contains additional information, has used a historically correct alternate spelling, or is in a different format than the standard. The user has attached a standard with less information or with a different alternate spelling to the user entered place-name.
  • Red exclamation point: The place is not standardized. 

How do I enter dates and places into Family Tree?
