all- I have a number projects that I’ve managed over the years where using inatrualis projects has been very useful to view species lists & observations based on users and NOT boundaries. However, when introducing projects to larger audiences like PTO meetings at local schools there is always a large percentage of users that sign up & use the iNat app but do not follow through with project signup.
I’m currently looking through user lists and adding users by hand. However, in ramping up for CNC2020 we will be managing 10-15 schools and user groups this way.
Below is the manager howto in the Collection Project Settings Explained form the https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/managing-projects#collectionsettings page.
" User: Search for and select iNaturalist users whose observations you would like to include in your project. The project will then only display observations made by those users, provided the observations meet the other project requirements. You can add multiple users. For situations involving groups, such classes and trips, this is a good way to only include observations by members of your group."
I’m hoping that someone else has a work-around that goes beyond the project manager just adding names to the project. Having a QR code that an iNaturalist user could scan would be great, albeit a lot of work for someone. Even enabling a cut &past of a list emails associated with iNaturlist logins separated by commas would be an improvement when dealing with dozens of names.
I will happily learn java script if someone can help get me started with the API. I’m assuming POST
/projects/:id/join would work. My direct email is Hikerd@gmail.com. I would jump at the prospects of developing github project manager tool; a workaround or assisting in any other way to make this happen.
