Unfortunately this happens a lot.
Admins need to be advised when changes are made to the functionality.
Not all admins read this forum.
The Aministrator Newsletters would be a good thing, but unfortunately they have been sporadic.

Full permission? I'm confused how to set mine.

It is really aggravating when someone tests in your group and then you have to write them and give them detailed instructions on how to make the changes. More wasted time for us admins. I have been working up some boiler plate verbage to use. A group admin can not make the changes--only the member.

Another default is that the profile is set at private so again, nothing shows when someone clicks on their matches.
AHA. This is the crux of my current problem or situation. I want to allow full access to the project administrator for my kit. And I cannot figure out how to change the settings. I thought the GREEN CHECKS meant ALLOW, and the RED X meant DO NOT ALLOW. There is no clue to inform me what they really mean to my permissions.
