Can an autosomal category be added to an existing project?

Is there any way to add an autosomal category to an existing project for Family Finder results? Thanks.

What would you want to see in such a category?

With Y-DNA and/or mtDNA FTDNA shows the test results for each member. Do you want to see the autosomal results (raw data) for each person with FF results?

Second Cousin's kit transfer from 23andMe

I have a second cousin who just transferred her kit from 23andMe to FTDNA. The purpose of adding an autosomal category is to be able to add her results to the project.

Anyone who has an FTDNA account, with or without test results, can be added to a project. So, if your cousin has joined the project, the results are there for the project administrator (you?) to see. However, there's no easy way to display autosomal results in a results table on a project website as there is with yDNA and mtDNA results. This is what Jim Barrett was referring to in his reply to you.

If you're the administrator, you have access to all the members' autosomal results and match lists, plus a matrix tool to compare members to each other.

Autosomal results (matches) can not be made public due to the privacy rights of each person on match list. Only the person who has tested is allowed to see match lists or the one they assign as administrator(as well as any of the admins of projects the person has joined)

This is one of the main reason autosomal results are not part of projects, other then being viewable by admin, the matches privacy rights. One would have to get consent from each person on matchlists before displaying.

If you mean how do you access a members FF results you sign into GAP, hover over the "Member Reports" tab and click on "Member Information" in the drop down list. Click on the kit number of a member with FF results. In the "Family Finder" section you'll have five buttons and four links. Click on them to see what is displayed.
