Putting location on a new project

I created a project for a Bioblitz we’re doing on Saturday. How do I invite others to be administrators, and how do I get our specific location (which is not listed) on to the project? Thanks in advance.

Hey Claire, welcome to the forum :)

This is the project, right? https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/old-crow-wetland-bioblitz. A few things you need to do:

  1. For others to be administrators, they have to join the project first. So get them to click ‘join’ at the top right of the page. From there you can click ‘edit’, and scroll to the bottom of the page to set new admins:

  2. If the place you’re focusing on does not already exist in iNat, you’ll have to manually create it. You can do this by going into an application like Google Earth or GIS, drawing the boundaries of your place, and then saving it as a KML file, which you can then upload at https://www.inaturalist.org/places/new. You can also upload an existing KML file if you already have one for that place (e.g., from your local council).

  3. Make sure you edit the date for your project! At the moment you have the filter set to any and all days ever; edit your project and set it to be April 16th only.

Let me know if you have any more questions :)
