Help with a project

I am trying to establish a project for iNaturalist.

When I attempt to add a record, I’m unable to attribute it to the project. On mobile I tab the name of the project and nothing happens.

I’ve tried to make the requirements as open as possible, selecting any where I can, and none at all for taxa, places, and users so that any is possible.

Any ideas where I might be going wrong here?

It’s a collectional project, you cant add observations there manually, you need to add prameters so filters will work in the project, if you want to only add records manually, you need a traditional project.


Thank you for your reply Marina. When I go to create a project, I see Collection and Umbrella. Is traditional project different to Umbrella? If so, where might I find the option to create a traditional project?

Scroll a little bit further down from umbrella/collectional, there’s a link to create a traditional project in the text block.

You may also want to read this “managing projects” page – lots of really great info there! :)

Thanks @fffffffff and @sambiology - I have realised that my problem is that I don’t have the 50 required observations to create a traditional project.

To find the extra obs to reach 50 have you looked at the UK and Europe. Many of the older burial grounds have become green lung park spaces.
But - I don’t see any obs for you on iNat?
