  • "Advanced Permissions" option in PROJECTS is unacceptable!

    I am making a BIG REQUEST. PLEASE SOMEONE AT FTDNA COMPANY REPLY TO THIS.
    I JOINED A FEW PROJECTS, they administrsators want FULL/ADVANCED ACCESS TO MY DNA. I would have NO problem with that EXCEPT the option to update/edit my contact information & MORE IMPORTANTLY also edit/update my benneficiary! THAT Option is not acceptable! Mr. James Miller made a great suggestion to remedy this problem. Have a SECONDARY BENNEFICIARY, where I could list someone else or even a project as benneficiary. I would love to "TRUST" project administrators, I know they mean well & are sincere in giving verbal assurance that those edit/update options will not be used or misused. But I just have to be honest, it's hard to trust people & companies nowadays. I would love to take their WORD to the bank but unfortunately, I CANNOT & THIS OPTION IN THE PROJECT MANAGEMENT, ADVANCED PERMISSIONS NEEDS TO BE ELIMINATED OR ability to "uncheck" specifically these 2 options. Family Tree DNA is asking too much in my opinion & I do love this company & I want to be able to utilize these projects that you offer ☺ I know that this will have to be an issue that only FTDNA Administration can fix & is beyond the abilities of project administrsators, so if these projects administrsators can't really help me too much without giving them advanced permissions, I guess I will have to leave the projects that REQUIRE it in order to really help me. Thanks for your reply.

    As an admin I'd like for my project members to be able to grant me a "see everything - change nothing" option.

      If you want a response from FTDNA itself why not contact them directly? You are not very likely to get a response on here from them.

        I know! Isn't it a shame, it's hard to even find these forums! I called today & got email for groups department, I am emailing now with a link to this thread & one other thread about the same exact subject in the project administrators discussion area of this forums. An administrator in that thread said he knew of some administrators that if a member don't comply, they just KICK CUSTOMER OUT OF THE PROJECT! I posted another thread about needing to make forums more easily accessible (like a direct link in the dashboard would be perfect!)
