Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): I have existing iNaturalist projects and I am trying to add a person to the Admin(s) list. I type their username but the usual drop down list of usernames is not coming up. Because of this, I can’t select the user I want to add to the project. In the past I was able to make other users admins before they joined the project. Is this still the case or because it says “Admins must be existing members of the project.” do I need them to click join as a member first?

Step 1: Type username into Admin(s) field. Normally, this would populate a drop down list and I would click on the username.

Step 2: Select user and click done to save changes.

Yes, they now need to be members of the project to become an admin.


Thank you
