Inviting and removing members

As the administrator of a project, you are able to invite and remove people from the project.  You can also control who is able to see and update traps.

Inviting new members

Trap.NZ doesn't allow you to add someone directly to a project.  Instead, you invite someone to join.

  • Go to my projects and click on the name of the project you want to manage.
  • Click on the "Send invites" tab.
  • Type the email address you want to invite into the "Email list" text box
    • If you want to invite more than one person you can list multiple email address.  You either need to put each address on its own line or to put a comma in between each address.
  • Click the "Send invites" button.

The invitee will receive an email with a link with an invitation to join your project.  Clicking on the link will automatically create a Trap.NZ account (if required) and add them to your project.

Adding somebody who has requested to join your project

A member can request to join any publically listed project via the find projects page.  The administrator will receive an email notifying them that somebody has requested to join their project. 

  • To approve a request go to my projects and click on the name of the project you want to manage.
  • Click the "Members" tab.
  • New requests will show up with a "Status" of "Pending".  If they included a message with their request it will be visible under "Message".
    • To approve their request click "Activate".
    • To refuse their request click "Revoke".

Removing members

  • Go to my projects and click on the name of the project you want to manage.
  • Click the "Members" tab.
  • Find the member you wish to remove
    • Clicking "Revoke" will remove them permanently from the project
    • Clicking "Deactivate" will set their status back to pending.  They will no longer be able to see anything in the project but will keep them in the list of members so they can be approved again later.​
