Managing member permissions

Initially, new members can only see and update traps and stations which they have added to Trap.NZ. 

If you would like to give a member broader permissions you have two options.

Change member's role

Changing the member's role within the project will give them additional rights to all traps, stations and records within the project.

  • Go to my projects and click on the name of the project you want to manage.
  • Click the "Members" tab.
  • Find the person you want to give extra permissions to and click "edit"
    • Tick "read-only member" if you want them to be able to see all traps, stations and records (but only make updates to their own traps). 
    • Tick "editor" if you want them to be able to see and update all traps, stations and records.
    • Tick "administrator member" if you want them to be able to make changes to the project itself, add and remember members and assign members to traps or stations.

Assign members to specific traps or stations

Assigning members to groups of traps or stations allows more granular control of a project.  This allows members to update records for only the traps or stations to which they are assigned. It also works for bait or monitoring stations in their respective menus.

Assign multiple members to groups of traps or stations

  • Go to my projects and click on the name of the project you want to manage.
  • Go to the Traps menu, then Manage traps.
  • In the "Operations" box select "Assign members" in the dropdown.
  • Select the tick boxes next to the traps you want to add members to.
  • Click "Execute".
  • Click on the "Select members to assign" dropdown and choose which members you want to add to the previously selected traps.
  • Click "Next" and review your changes.
  • Click "Confirm".

The members you selected will now be able to update records for the selected traps or stations.

Unassign multiple members from groups of traps or stations

  • Go to my projects and click on the name of the project you want to manage.
  • Go to the Traps menu, then Manage traps.
  • In the "Operations" box select "Unassign Members" in the dropdown.
  • Select the tick boxes next to the traps you want to remove members from.
  • Click "Execute".
  • Click on the "Select members to assign" dropdown and choose which members you want to remove from the previously selected traps.
  • Click "Next" and review your changes.
  • Click "Confirm".

View member assignments to traps or stations

  • Go to my projects and click on the name of the project you want to manage.
