Since some project administrators are still missing the e-mail updates, here is the link to the announcement FTDNA just made

Any idea why FTDNA made it so Admins can't copy copy or download private results? Is it just to make it harder to share them with someone who is not an Admin?

Since the downloads would still be possible, to me that looks like a typical legal requirement.

It is easy to require the downloader to acknowledge some legalese before downloading. I think the same could be done for a select&copy action, but I do not recall sites doing that - maybe I am mistaken, maybe it does not work well in practice.


The important part of the announcement is that the downloaded data might be different from the displayed data!

And you had noticed that first!
Results downloading broken?

I bet the results you were missing in the downloads were from the kits with restrictive privacy settings. Would you be able to verify that ?

Based on a quick check, it looks like download is missing not only the private ones but also some that aren't private. The "Export to Spreadsheet" function on the GAP results page seems to have everything except the private ones. Seems like download may just be plain broken.

Thank you for an instant response!

So we are closely watching FTDNA work in progress.

At least your observation has an answer.

" So we are closely watching FTDNA work in progress"
at least they were proactive on one front: The Member Information Report now has the added columns:
Access Granted and Publicly Shared DNA Results.

Both will be a real time saver!
