Why can't new members see traps?

When a new member is added to a project they have limited access. They can only add new traps and update records for those traps. The administrator of the project can change this by granting the new member "read only" or "editor" status.

  • Read only members can see all the traps and records within the project but can only update their own traps.
  • Editor members can see and update any trap in the project.

As of February 2019 members who are using the Trap.NZ mobile app need to have "editor" status or the app won't work properly.  This will change with a future release of the app which will allow users of the app to be given permission to only update some traps.

If you are the administrator of a project you can read more about managing the members of your project.
