I apologize if this is redundant but I couldn’t find a search that helped specifically.
Me and a couple other collaborators have set up a project to survey iNaturalist biodiversity in Sleeping Giant State Park (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/sleeping-giant-state-park-biodiversity). One of the people works with the park and keeps his own data but it would be great to utilize iNat to get more records from casual observers. So we would need to have the project auto-add the hundreds of prior records from the park but it doesn’t work. Oddly enough it only adds ONE species to the project!
I set up a collections project, added the three collaborators as editors, added “Sleeping Giant State Park” which is well outlined on places, and set the parameter to “Life” so all life forms will be included. Nothing works to populate the list. I know I have a lot of records from within the park, with no privacy boxes or big circles, and none of mine were added to the project despite being geolocated within the place boundary.
Is there a way to fix the project or is it impossible to auto-add older observations? Do I have to manually add everything, and will it auto-populate future records now that the project exists?
