Where are instructions to gain access to the 6 autosomal DNA kits that I manage and have uploaded to WikiTree?

I am the sole manager and authority for all 7 of the aDNA kits that I manage and uploaded.  No one else in the family can or will answer any questions or comments.  Yet I am restricted from all kits except my own.  How do we fix this?

Not sure what you mean here, all you do in WikiTree is add information about tests you have had done, not the test results themselves.

Joe, did you add them all to your profile? Each of the tests should be added to the profile of the person who took them. And you should either manage those profiles or be on the trusted list. If the profiles are open then you have access.

This is unlike Ancestry, for example, where one person manages a number of kits.

Thanks for the information.

I am the manager/trusted person for my tree and all 7 aDNA datasets,  On each profile on the right side, all 7 aDNA kits are listed. When I click on "Test Details" for my profile, I am taken to the page with the list of possible ancestors, etc.  When I click on "Test Details" for the other 6 profiles I am told that I am not able to access that information.

I thought that I uploaded the aDNA data to each profile.  How can I check that?  And how can I correct it and add them again, if necessary?
It's the privacy controls I suspect. I tried Gillian and the error message was that there was no public family tree. She will need to be either yellow (private with public biography and family tree) or the next level up which is a pale orange (private with public family tree). Green (public) or white (open) will also work of course.

As an aside, were you CLOOZ? Your name's familiar.
Thanks very much.  Security was the problem.  Simple to fix, once the problem was known.  :-)

And yes, I was a partner in Clooz, but I had to retire because my health did not allow me to continue the virtual 24/7 on line status to support customer service.  Clooz continues in the very capable hands of my partner Rich.

Regards, Joe
I thought so. I was trying to shoe-horn the Australian Electoral Rolls into Clooz and finally gave up as it was too much effort to come up with an effective way.
