Should a Trusted List person be allowed to enter DNA test information?

+7 votes
If you are a Trusted List member of a profile of a living person, then should you be allowed to add that living person's DNA test information to their profile?  I work with many relatives who are novices with computers and/or DNA information.  It is quite a challenge to describe to them how to accept WikiTree's invitation to join and enter the correct DNA information.  

Is someone willing to create a step by step guide or video?  If not, then may we please add another category such as profile guardian?  That might make it easier to manage another profile with the user's permission.

Perhaps, after they set up their Wikitree account, they might share their log in information with you so you could assist.  Just a thought . . .

Peter, due to changes required by the GDPR only a member can add DNA information to their own profile so the only way DNA can be added to a profile is for a member to add it to their own profile. There is no minimum amount you need to do each month so if you walk them thru joining and adding their DNA info that is all they need to do. You never know they might become motivated to learn more about what we do here and help out more in the future.

Hi Peter,

The gdpr covers these details you can read about it here along with step by step direction.

However I believe only the profile manager can add DNA Test information. However a profile may have multiple profile managers

Steve, a profile manager can not add DNA results to any living member except for themselves. That means I could not even add DNA results for my own son because he is not a member of WikiTree.

Yes correct the gdpr faq covers them details. I didn't feel I needed to elaborate fully since it was on one page yes
