Enrique, I am so sorry to tell you that you cannot do that.  Under the new privacy rules that WikiTree was forced to adopt to be in compliance with the GDPR, you can only enter your own DNA results.  You would have to invite each of your siblings to join WikiTree and then they could each enter their own results.

It's easy to invite them - just edit the person's profile and enter his/her email address.  An invitation will automatically be sent to the person and all they have to do is click on a link in the message to accept the invitation.  They don't ever have to do anything else here after that, although your purpose is for them to enter their DNA information.

They also need detailed instructions on how to add their DNA information.  Or could it be possible for WikiTree to allow someone on their trusted list to add that DNA information?

We've been there before about someone adding family member's DNA a few times in G2G already, Peter, and WikiTree is very firm (see THIS) that this cannot be permitted.  THIS is one of them and HERE is another.  

The whole idea that if someone is physically present to literally guide the mouse of their computer challenged relative to have them log in and add their DNA results, it's ok, but if that same person is on the trusted list or even profile manager of their relative's profile and has the relative's permission, it is not ok for them to add the results, but this is, nonetheless, the rule and I do understand that there is a very real legally driven need for Chris to be paranoid about privacy protections.I posted a suggestion about members volunteering to help geographically distant and computer challenged relatives enter their DNA results HERE
